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? ;)

How do you do it?

(By Over the Top Cakes Designer Workshop)

Oh. Right.

Is that why people give you so many mugs?

 

You teach Art,

...the Arts,

...and bring music to our ears.

(By Madison Lee's Cakes)

Except maybe during hour 3 of practice, when the rest of the family's trying to watch Doctor Who.
But still.

 

Without you, people couldn't read and appreciate this very blog!

And... um... other great literature.

 

You teach ALL the math.

Which I promise we DO use after we graduate.
(Sometimes we just takes shortcuts.)

 

You show us our place in history,

...and our place in the world.

Then you help us understand the people in it.

(By Gateau Distinctive Cakes)

Magnifique!

 

For all these reasons and so many more:

Thank you, teachers and school staff, for everything!
