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? ;)

Sweet N' Salty

Salt Lake City charmed our socks off, pure and simple.

We had a great crowd in the gallery next door to The King's English, and as you can see, everyone LOVED my yellow boots. Or maybe they're looking at the slide show here. One or the other, anyway.

Rylie of That's My Cake took on the challenge of following up Tempe's treats by creating not one, not two, but FIVE cakes. (!!)

Two were yummalicious sheet cakes, and then there was the sparkly one:

A fun modern one:

And, er, this:

Now THAT is a cupcake.
Notice how the carrot jockeys are circling it like a giant whirlpool wave. :D

You rock, Rylie.

Then there are the wreckplicas: A whole two tables' worth! Here are just a few of our favorites:

The famous Poo Dog! Complete with Poo!

First time I've seen the merman on the tour. In fact, there were two merman wreckplicas. Must be merman country. :)

And speaking of bear skin rugs:

Would you believe that the guy on the rug is made entirely of fondant? No? Ok, neither would I.

And finally, our "winners":

Emily, Tiffiny, Curtis and Aubrey

And their cakes:

Love the CW butt tattoo. The only thing missing is the Barely There Censor Bearâ„¢.

Emily made a combination of three different wrecks. Can you name them all?

And this was the winner of the "Winners": the window display from Bakeries from Beyond!

Oh, and we can't forget our above and beyond Wreckies:

Custom t-shirts! Kay Krex, Cake Rex, and the carrot jockey:

They had me and John sign the shirts, too. I only let John sign the backs, though. (Sorry, ladies.)

And finally, you Epbot readers may remember my quest to find sparkly Steampunk jewelry. Well, Lois Ewing took on the challenge and made me this *astounding* jewelry set:

WOW. I know it's not cake, but that's pretty darn sweet! Thanks, Lois!


News Bites!

By popular demand, more Top Headlines, illustrated by Wrecks.
Because that's how the news SHOULD be told.

"Apple Fans Conduct World's First iPad Wedding"

The article didn't have any pics of their wedding cake, but I like to think it looked something like this "Apple computer":

Steve Jobs would be proud.

"Biologists Use Calvin Klein's Obsession to Attract Big Cats"

In other news: getitoffgetitoffofmygoshgetitoff!!

No word yet on the cats' stance on heavy petting.

"Boy Saves Sister from Moose Using World of Warcraft Skills"

Clearly, this kid deserves one kick-a$ WoW cake. So let's take a picture of one and stick it on another cake:


(Note: Believe it or not, the cake in the picture printed on the cake in the picture is what Goran wanted, not this. So if your baker ever asks for a "reference photo," be afraid. Be very afraid.)

Thanks to industrious Wreckporters Anony M., Stephanie B., & Goran P.!
