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? ;)

The Frogs Talk Back

Recently here on CW I took aim at frog cakes, which I might have insinuated are all slimy hell beasts of Wreckage. A few of you took issue with this. So, here to defend their good name are some more frog cakes.

Take it away, guys!

"Well, Jen, as you can see we're extremely well-rounded."

"And we always put our best feet forward."

"In fact, you'd be hard-pressed to find a frog cake that was too dimensional.
(And if you did, I'd be crushed.)"

"Never mind all that, though: The eyes have it, dahlings."

Uh huh. I see.

Well, frankly, guys, I think you're just making my point for me. But wait - what's this? Dribbles has prepared a short statement summarizing why frog cakes are awesome? Ok, then. Preach it, Dribbles.

"Thowwy, I can't wewwy tok wight now. Ma tongue is bwoke."

Aw, what a shame. Well, slimy hell beasts you remain, frog cakes. Sorry.

I've had a soft spot for the Queen of Hearts ever since John and I made elaborate Queen & cards costumes one year for Halloween. (We roped a gaggle of guys into going as cards, too, so we made quite the impression marching en masse through Disney.) So naturally, I had to find some Queen cakes:

Such great detailing!

And here's the classic Disney version:
