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? ;)

More Wreckwear!

Here are a few more fun designs available now over in the Cake Wrecks Zazzle store.

First, brought to you by the creator of the "One Bon-Bon is Poison" tee, the "Monkey See, Monkey Doo-Doo" tee!

Yep, Rebecca of Glitter-Bubbles Jewelry has done it again - and this time she added an adorable skull to the web address, too! Yay!

Look how awesome it looks on this shirt:

Monkey See, Monkey Doo-Doo Tee shirt

The green really brings out his eyes, don't you think?

Next, Elizabeth Douglas of The Shenanigan Files whipped together this little number:

I like to think this is how the site name would look on a "professional" cake.

And after many requests, I finally got around to adding this one:

(It has Cake Wrecks written on the back.)



The Cutest Misspellings of "Happy Birthday" I Have Ever Seen

Betcha didn't know a misspelling could be cute, did you? Well, it can. Observe:

This was given to Erik's buddy over in Iraq, where the locals guards had nicknamed him Omar. Yes, it says "Hippy barth day". Tell me that doesn't make you want to squeeze its lil' icing cheeks - go on.

JB tells me this adorable little morsel came from a restaurant in Taipan:

"Epi Burfday"


UPDATE: Some of you are taking issue with my "Taipan" spelling. (The gall!) So just to clear this up: no, I did not misspell it, and no, I don't know where it is. All I can say is that's what was written in the e-mail. Is it possible JB meant Taiwan? Sure. Do I care? Not so much.
