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, chop chop! This cake's not gonna cut itself."


Thanks to Rita G. for not making a monkey out of me.


The World's Most Unfortunate Wedding Monogram 

Some couples look for a sign that their marriage will last.


 This isn't it.

Thanks to Ruth H. for the initial discomfort.


Note from john: For those you you who may not know, usually "DOA" stands for "Dead On Arrival."  Less common meanings are "Dead Or Alive", "Date Of Arrest" and the ever-popular, "Darkener Of Apricot."
