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? ;)

What We Have Here is a Failure to Communicate

Remember the cake that started it all? Of course you do. Here are a few more cakes that show you can know English without understanding the language.

I especially love how the decorator tried to cram in some quotation marks - which, ironically, would have been the correct usage for once.

Sometimes stupidity takes so much more effort.

The instructions were "Write 'Happy Birthday Calvin' in green," as in green icing. I'm surprised the decorator didn't write it like this: "Gre - Happy Birthday Calvin - En".

Proof That Shameless Begging Works

Ah, how sweet it is to be back posting here on Blogger, dear readers.

As you probably know from the sidebar note I had posted, Blogger's anti-spam measures disabled my account last Friday afternoon, along with countless others. For the past five days I have been pleading on the Blogger Help Group boards for a live person to a) unlock my account, or failing that, to b) acknowledge my existence. I tried being polite. Then I tried being a little snippy. When those both failed, I resorted to the time-proven tactic of shameless begging.

My post this morning read as follows:

"Please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please pretty pretty pretty pretty please?!?"

About four hours later: bingo! Cake Wrecks is unlocked!

See, it really does work sometimes, guys. ;)

Thanks to all of you who checked in on me during my virtual absence: I'd take you guys over any other blog's readers, any day. Ya'll rock.

Now, back to the Wreckiness!
