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? ;)

Thanks to Alicia M. for reminding us to never cross a princess. Or anyone wielding a chainsaw.

They wrote the order down as "Beauty and the Beets.". Alas, all those Disney princesses look so much alike. At least they got plenty of beets...

@Debs thank you for the explanation!! I never could figure out why she was in pink in so much of the merchandise. Initially, when she was being brought back full force, I didn't even know who she was until I saw something with her in blue again.

(I will NOT be commenting on the cake since I can't seem to play nice when I look at it. I've tempted karma enough at work so I'll just shut up now.)

I'm with those who think the blood is her own. Happy First Menses, Princess! Maybe now you'll remember to pack some protection in your purse.

Dear Lord. That's all I have to say.

I am viewing this at the end of a nearly 17-hour workday, 13 of which were spent editing. So when I first saw all the blood, I thought my eyeballs really HAD melted.

Now I'm thinking she was part of the crowd yelling "Kill the beast!" And decided to take his body home.

Yikes. Someone's been looking at too many detective magazines while on break!

Well that answered my question of whether fairy tale princesses get pms lol. Holy cow what a terrifying wreck that is.

Lol! first thing I think is sleeping beauty standing over Cinderella's lifeless body and saying "who's the favorite princess now?!"

Chainsaw? I honestly would have just guessed the fairies forgot to enchant her tampon to keep working during all the time she was asleep.

Everybody Run, the Homecoming Queen's Princess's Got a Gun. (Or just maybe something a LOT worse.)

This makes my Sleeping-Beauty-themed "Cake or Death" mashup all too realistic!
