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 Baby James

Thank you all so much for the outpouring of love, prayers, and sympathies in regards to sweet baby James. I knew I had great readers, but you all have just outdone yourselves in kindness. The amount of traffic on James' blog exploded on the day I posted his tribute, and the many comments you all left there have been a great source of comfort to his parents John and Abby and the rest of their family.

James' funeral was this afternoon (the video will be posted on his blog soon), and during the service his dad not only read one of the comments one of you posted, but also mentioned Cake Wrecks readers in general - that's how much of an impact you've had on this family. So, on behalf of them and myself, thank you.


Cakes For All Occasions

As you all know, some Wrecks are only Wrecks because of what the customer ordered to be written on them.

These are those Wrecks.

Harsh reality, sweet messenger.

Submitter Dan titled it best: "Cake for a Cheerful Nihilist".

Looking on the bright side?

Hey, this one seems familiar...

Feelin' the love.

As a Wrecktacular bonus, go back and read all the cakes in order. Freaky, eh? It's like those ransom notes made from newspaper clippings, only using cakes. Now what's crazier: the fact that these cakes exist, or that I have enough submissions to piece together almost-sentences? :)
