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? ;)

A Picture is Worth What Now?

I know, I know, sometimes you're in a hurry, and you have to grab just any ol' cake off the shelf for your party.


Why this one?

If you're fishing for a compliment, then that's strike one.


And if you bring this home to celebrate your sixth anniversary?

Well, let's just say there are other fish in the sea. Who can spell.


Wow, I'm so glad they remembered the glass slipper on Dad's cake!

The pink purse alone was just a little too cliché, you know?


It's not always a case of last-minute cake decisions, though; sometimes people choose this stuff intentionally.

And you thought dinosaurs were agnostic.


This cake was part of a Breast Cancer Awareness display:

Is that Coraline's creepy button-eyed Other Mother?

We can only hope.


Speaking of cakes that will blow your mind, how about a dust mite encouraging you to have healthy digestive regularity?

And darned if I just don't want to disappoint the little fella, too.

Wrecky Replay - The Apostrophe is Silent

(ATTN PARENTS: This post contains material somewhat "adult" in nature.)

Once upon a time there was a girl named Amber.

Amber decided that school was not for her. Fortunately, she had loving and supportive parents.

One day Amber was offered an exciting new job. To celebrate, she added an apostrophe to her name, thinking it would make her seem more sophisticated. Again, her parents were supportive.

Unfortunately, introducing herself as "Amber - the apostrophe is silent" did not yield the results Amber was hoping for. Still, she did make some new friends at work: Cassie the, and "Long Lips" Lisa.

Of course, every job has its hazards:

Which Lisa and Cassie were always there to commiserate with:

Then one day, after an unfortunate misunderstanding between the girls and a city health inspector looking for "clogged plumbing", disaster:

Amber said goodbye to her newfound - albeit diseased - friends, and despaired over finding another job to suit her rather unique skill set and wardrobe. Fortunately, her ever-supportive parents were way ahead of her:



Thanks to today illustrious Wreckporters Wendy E., Monique R., Alex H., Michele D., & Amber (no apostrophe) S., and Alexa B.
