What's a Wreck?

A Cake Wreck is any cake that is unintentionally sad, silly, creepy, inappropriate - you name it. A Wreck is not necessarily a poorly-made cake; it's simply one I find funny, for any of a number of reasons. Anyone who has ever smeared frosting on a baked good has made a Wreck at one time or another, so I'm not here to vilify decorators: Cake Wrecks is just about finding the funny in unexpected, sugar-filled places.

Now, don't you have a photo you want to send me? ;)

Literally? LITERALLY.

If Cake Wrecks has taught us anything, it's that you have to be really careful what you say to a baker:

Houston, we have a problem.


Insert snarky comment here: ...........


This one I'm actually Ok with - but only because the baker included some this time.


Ah, the perils of buying a cake and picking it up later:

(Do you think the baker write5 all hi5/her Ss like thi5?)


"So, whaddaya want?"

"Hang on, where?"


Wow. That is SO...well, you know.


I guess we should be glad these mistakes are on cake, though, which is easily disposed of. I hear tanker trucks are way more difficult:

Well, maybe not if you have a match, but still.


And what does it say when this pops up in front of your kids' school?

I get the feeling this "shold read" something else.


So the next time you see a literal LOL iced on a cake, just remember:

Somewhere there are people with this frame on their mantels. 

(Although I bet they got it for cheap!)


Thanks to Kelsey C., Bami, Kim L., Kathy R., Tam, Anony M., John O., Jen G., & Robyn S. for literally being my most recent wreckporters.

@KarateLady we used to watch the liftoff on tv, amble out to the back yard, look East and watch the shuttle as it cleared our tree line. :D the first time it landed in FL, it broke the sound barrier as it dropped down over Orlando and the windows in our old house cracked. Not like across the pane like ice but the layers separated a little. My sister and I were both asleep, sat up looked at each other and whispered, "what the F was that?"

Tell Mr. KarateLady that if I ever see the IMAX, I'll watch for his white project box!!

@ BB

Or maybe Tom Smith's "Filk in the Blanks".
I'd forgotten about "Your State Here".
