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? ;)

- Jen

Well, THAT'S Handsy

You know those cringe-inducing pregnancy photos where the mom-to-be's mostly naked and the shirtless dad is standing behind her caressing her belly, and all you can think is how you don't even like going to the pool in a bikini, but here they are, all up in yo' Facebook feed, smirking the smirk of the freshly procreated?

Well, doesn't that sight make you, like, totally hungry?




If you'll excuse me, Katie A., I'll just be over here screaming forever. (And they're saying my doll-and-butcher-knife mobile is creepy. YEESH.)

PS - I just had a lengthy conversation with John about that ring and hand placement. That has to be the pointer finger, guys. IT HAS TO. Otherwise, ouch.

Just imagine if they had added the outlines of the baby hands reaching out from inside the belly! ewww. Or brown sprinkles on the dad's hands for hairy knuckles! So many things could have made this worse.

Theardare knows the perfect place to put your mobile, Jen. *eyebrow waggle*

I seriously doubt that a Jewish couple so traditional as to wear their rings on their right index fingers would have a semi-naked belly *dives into the bunker with both 100-piece bags of candy she bought for her students and a big jug of milk*

I'm SO impressed! I grew up with the Beatles (though not literally, darn it). I'd bet even Sir Paul would love that, and I'm not kidding. I had to YouTube it, minimize it, and read your lyrics while listening to the actual song.
It was crazy! And awesome. Crawsome. Yeah. (Sigh...) =^~.~^=

doll-and-butcher-knife mobile is far less creepy since I'm not expected to eat it.

@BB, Miami "Aliens" for the WIN
(also, we have "The Neverending Story" and "Princess Bride" references- I LOVE you people)

@mel brilliant

(sashays off to the Bunker, "Oh, Theardare, want to see the doll mobile Jen made for you?")

I don't even have the words to describe what I feel looking at this thing lol. I will just quietly hide and hope that the thing won't attack me in my sleep lol.

Wonderful and creative parody, Mel. I will never listen to "Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey" in quite the same way again!

@ Barbara Anne: Okay, new game: This one's called "Whose Bunker IS It, Anyway?" First,Theardare was hanging out with Karate Lady; now he's with you. But sure - see if T. wants to take a swipe or two at that creeperiffic mobile. SOMEBODY should get something out of it (and with any luck, he'll make litter box filler out of it!) =^-.~^=

@mel HI!
@sending actually, T. wanted it hung up in his "private" space. o.O apparently, he liked it. apparently, he has a "private" space. one of those two is creepy and the other is very frightening. your choice.

"...smirking the smirk of the freshly procreated..."

Not only are the rings on the wrong finger, they're on the - Oh...nvm...somebody(s) already said that. :D hahaha

PS that mobile is creepy :( creative but super eeeeeeee

PSS Cool facts about the Jewish/Russian ring placement! Wrecks make sense...or not!

@Lisa Why bother putting the ring on the index finger to begin with then if it just gets moved that early? And how does that even work? I know my wedding ring doesn't fit on my index finger because it's properly sized for my ring finger. If it did fit, it'd be too big to stay on my ring finger - do they get the ring resized after the wedding too?

Aaaanyway, I'm thankful that anyone who would be ordering a cake at a baby shower for me would be conservative enough to avoid anything like this.
