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? ;)

May the 4th Be With You...

...or at least with this cake:

"Sad of September" sends his regards.

Ask not what your country can do for you... [eyebrow waggle]

Not ok, man. Not ok.

Of course, some bakers don't need words to show their true colors:

Ah, the good ol' red, blue, white, and black.

No, wait. I can't do it. I can't just move on to the next cake. I tried - I really did - but I just can't. I'm afraid this calls for a Jen Rant. Sorry.

Here goes.


Seriously, Wreckerator? SERIOUSLY? This is what you're calling an "American flag," to be sold here IN America, and for America's birthday, no less? I mean, really? Red and BLUE stripes? Black stars? REALLY? Have you no shame? No patriotic pride? No...


Um. What is that?

Ok. Never mind. This is worse.

Now, what do you say we go out with a bang?

Theeeere it is.

Amber E., Carol S., Sarah C., Christina P., Robert I., Hillary H., & Jennifer, I don't know about you, but my confidence in these wreckerators seems to be flagging.


National Canada Day

So apparently today is Canada Day. Now in our defense, we didn't even realize that the US celebrated Canada with its own day, but then, we do have Hamburger Day so I guess it's not that much of a stretch.

So, um, here's a cake:

And another one:

And now, in your honor, Canada, John & I will sing "Canada" from Epcot.

Jen: Canadaaaa...

John: CanadAAAA!

Jen: My Canada!

John: Dadadaaaa.

Jen: Blah blah blah bla doo dee doo dee doo dee planet earth.

John: Dadadaaa.

Jen: Um. Canadaaaa?

John: Canada.

Jen: My Canada!

John: Dadadaa. I think that's good.

Jen: Yeah. Totally.

Happy Canada Day, Shaunna & Jill P.

Oh, and to everyone else, too. Especially Canada.

Important note from john: Dear Canada,
It has come to our attention that nearly all of you were offended by today's post. It seems that Canada Day is apparently not an American holiday. Also, and correct me if I'm wrong here, the song from the Canada pavilion in Epcot is not actually your national anthem. Huh. Go figure. Also, it should be noted that Canada is far superior at hockey.

Please accept our deepest apologies,
john (the hubby of Jen)
