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? ;)

Armed To The Tea

Have you ever wandered through a bakery and thought, "Man, I could really go for a cake shaped like an arm holding a cup of hair right now"?

Well if so, then YOU are a very disturbed individual. Seriously. Maybe you should talk to someone.

But also, you're in luck!

Now, I know what you're thinking, and I completely agree. TOTALLY. But where would we even get a robot monkey at this hour? 

You may also be wondering where the hair is.

There it is!

("I see...THE GRIM. And he's shedding like crazy.")

I'd say it looks like someone plucked out their mustache, but only because there are children present and I wouldn't want this to get too...public. (HI, KIDS.) I'd also go out on a limb and say this baker has single-handedly created the most disarming assault on the funny bone yet - but only because puns make me snort-giggle.

But in case that's not enough hair for you, fear not; there's more!


Er, I about a hairy situation that must have taken a lot of elbow grease! Haha!

K, I think that's all I've got. SO, let the Professor Trelawney jokes...begin.


Thanks to Julia for reminding us of our universal right to bare arms. (Ok, that's the last one. Promise.)

@Morag - I'd be pretty worried if anything in the bottom of a real teacup looked like that. Especially if there was a cat in the house! But if you do that slightly crosseyed 'looking through the picture rather than at it' thing like it's 1990 and you're looking at a Magic Eye book, you can kind of convince yourself it's not a hairball...

Am I the only one who spotted the Pinkie And The Brain reference...? And; Wow, Jen, that's A LOT of puns...
No, wait. Mary, SaraV, and Haiku Joy spotted it! Good job! Also, love the song, Sharyn! XD

Thank God I hate tea, because if I were a tea drinker this cake would turn me off the stuff faster than you could say "Nair removes 99% of the hair on your arm!"

I have two things to say. One is that the cake is REALLY bad! Second, I was thinking of Trelawney too!
