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? ;)

The Muppet Doo-Doo Post

Last weekend Jen and I got to meet Karen Prell and Brian Henson, and it was beyond amazing. I say this both to brag (WE MET KAREN PRELL AND BRIAN HENSON YOU GUYS) and to explain why I have Muppets on the brain.

(Btw, "Muppets On The Brain" is the name of my Lady Gaga cover band.)

So.
Please to enjoy this Muppet-themed sing-along.

Ahem.
Hem. Hem.

Subjective Reasoning

Sometimes the best part of checking the Cake Wrecks email is reading the subject lines you readers come up with.  After all, it's not every inbox that can boast lines like "Loose Stool or Sea Slug?" and "Two Words: Flaming Caterpillar."

Here are some more fantastic, actual examples of reader email titles from the archives. (No, seriously, I am not making these up.)

 

"Dogs with grad caps nailed to their skulls" - from Amy T.

(Admit it: you would open that one first, too.)

And she really nailed that description on the head, huh?

 

"Asphyxiation Barbie: SVU" - Sarah M.

"Looks like somebody..." 

[removing sunglasses]

"...took this doll's breath away."

 

 "I was looking for Monistat at the Walmart..." - Scott F.

"Yeast ring?" I donut think that means what you think it means...

 

"Princess Leia's Frhog" - Colleen K.

 "Help me, Oinkie One Kenobi; you're my only hop."

 

"Madagascar Nipples Cake" - Amy E.

[Insert "Tracts of land" joke here.]

 

"Peanut Mouth Cookie Ninja" - Amanda B.

(Does the head wound mean the ninja's already been here?)

 

And my personal favorite:  

"I don't know what it is, but it's angry and it has a guitar." - Petra R.

To be fair, it also has a pilgrim hat.

 

Thanks to all of today's wreckporters for continuing to keep our spam filters guessing.
