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? ;)

Reading Between The Wrecks

Chocolates? Flowers? Cutesy stuffed animals?



This Valentine's day, give me something a little out-of-the-ordinary! Something a little daring!  Something a


 (Remember, the couple that leaves flaming bags of poo on doorsteps together, STAYS together.)


I'm getting kind of a mixed message here.


Ok, now it's less mixed.


 Hang on. So you're saying you morph into a heart-chomping werewolf at night? Is that it?


 And the call is coming from inside the house?


And you may need diapers?


But you still love me in your barbaric, wolfish way?

  Aw. Well, I guess that IS kind of sweet...

  Will you stop killing things while I'm trying to talk to you.


Well, I guess the only really important thing is that we understand one another, right?



 That and house training, of course.



Thanks to Rebekah G., Meredith G., Carolyn, Brandy S., Chau, Laura E., Kerry M., Lynn B., Anne Q., & Anthony S. for reminding us to just stick with boxes of chocolates. 

Unless we're werewolves.

@Party Princess from another South African; SERIOUSLY chicky?! You're going to spread the Oscar thing to as many people as you can just to make you feel bigger/better/ more important?
What happened is horrible and I feel for the people close to them, but they have absolutely nothing to do with the smiles, giggles and outright guffaws gifted to us by this amazing, dedicated and talented lady and her man and her friend.
Sorry cakewreck fans; that post put a sour note in this otherwise fun comment stream.
Wreck runners and wreck fans rock. :-)

"flaming bags of poo" only makes me think of yelling "EAT LEAD, SLACKERS!!!" I know, not a perfect quote reference, but it's all Strickland, right?

My hubby saw the last cake and said "why did someone stick plastic hearts on a dookie?"

@Mr. Haiku - you stole my brain. I was totally thinking of Joe Vs. the Volcano with Cake#2. I think I need to watch that now...

@Mr. Haiku -- exactly! I just thought, "Oh, it's a Joe vs the Volcano cake!" I mean, what else could the baker have been thinking?

That last one... Wow. That's some realistic poop.

oh, geez, the"heart-chomping werewolf" was the most easily recognizable design!!

Happy belated birthday to Sharyn's Matt. (which I'm sure someone's pointed out to him- countless times- brings a very different image to mind when his name's not capitalized. sorry.)
Happy belated birthday to Andrea's nearly-driving-age "little" one.
Happy belated birthday to Pamtha's nearly-teenaged one!

SuBee, lady, you have been on a ROLL lately. :D
Sir Laughsalot, dude, YOU have been on a roll lately, too. ;)

Mr. Haiku a big hug from me (platonic, of course). Smart man with the advice HaikuJoy noted. You really won my heart with the Joe Versus the Volcano reference, though! It's the only good Tom Hanks/Meg Ryan,Meg Ryan,Meg Ryan pairing in my book! I can't believe two others mentioned it, too, since NO ONE I know has seen that movie. (Abe Vigoda in a hula skirt made from orange soda cans FOR.THE.WIN.)

" Will you stop killing things while I'm trying to talk to you."

That line nearly killed me.
