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? ;)

"Head" Lines

One of the most tragic aspects of the Great Richmond Earthquake of 2011 was that it overshadowed last weekend's top headline. (The horror!) Lucky for you, though, I'm here to drag it back into the limelight:

"Ferry Runs Aground After Captain Stuck In Toilet."

Now, naturally, a title like that evokes a curious need for details. Thankfully, this article has us covered:

"HELSINKI (Reuters) - A Finnish ferry has run aground while its captain was stuck in the bathroom."


Well. That clears that up.

There were a few minor injuries and, tragically, "tableware was broken," so it's safe to say the captain may be feeling a bit down this week.

We should really get him a cake, don't you think?


Oh, look. FOUND ONE:

"Get some swabs down here! The Cap'n just christened the poop deck!"


Thanks to Michelle B. and Rebekah W. for today's crack wreckporting.

And now, a rare glimpse into the Italian reproductive system:

Hey Bridget, think those are egg noodles?


I'll be here all week! Tip your waitress!
