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 today's anonymous wreckporter for being such a team player.

Did anyone else catch the name in the black, white and red cake. Harley Quinn? I hope that wasn't a real name!

I was scared for a second... I thought the bride was going to hit the groom... I almost posted an anti-domestic violence comment before noticing. :(
