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? ;)

Not the cake we deserve:


... but the cake we need:

I needed that.


And now, your moment of Jen:

Whoever writes the best caption in the comments wins a signed copy of Cake Wrecks. (And hey, maybe I'll even be the one who signs it. [eyebrow waggle])

Annnnd... GO.


Thanks to Meagan D., Idia L., Alexis O., & John & Jenni E. for the cakes. No. Really.

Turbo caption:
Wilson mused silently to himself; “Look-alikes just don’t seem to get the gigs these days…”

Wilson decided it was time to show his therapist photographic proof of the hideously high expectations and cruel performance taunting constantly levelled upon him by his human owner…
