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? ;)

If Cake Croutons Become A Thing, I WANT CREDIT

It's Thanksgiving here in America, my friends, but ALL of us could stand to be more thankful for the little things in life.

Like turkeys giving birth to pilgrim hats:

 

And old Halloween flotsam:

 

For floating scarecrow heads:

 

Desperate store managers trying to get rid of old stock:

 

And spurting turkey cannons:

 

For turkeys with exploding butts:

("My bad.")

 

And sad pilgrim heads:

 

For goobles:

 

And gobles:

 

And all those many, many Thanks Given:

Not to mention all the bakers who actually think it's spelled that way.

 

For giant salads with cake croutons:

(I dunno. But I like it.)

 

And for knowing that, while you can't polish a turd, you CAN stick a paper tail in it and call it a turd-key:

 

But most of all, lets be thankful for our friends, our family, and for this guy:

Because, c'mon, look at him.

LOOK AT HIM.

Happy Thanksgiving, wrecky minions! Now, go have some pie.

 

Also giving thanks for Shannon R., Marah S., Lucretia J., Chris H., Sabrina K., Lee V., Sarah S., Juanita G., Pamela T., Christopher F., James L., Tanya D., & Diane G. Gooble 'til ya drooble, guys.

Oh Stuff It

Unfortunately for us all, turkey cakes are a thing.
I guess I can live with this, but why - WHY - do bakers have to add the stuffing?

"Ahh, the ol' 'Fido's head exploded' design. Nice!

 

But can we add a few blood stains?"

"PERFECT."

 

"Now how about some moldy green bits? And can we make the turkey into a dirty paper bag?"

"PERFECTER."

 

"Next, throw in a weird body cavity that makes everyone vaguely uncomfortable..."

"Oooh, and is that dog food in there? I LIKE. Give me more.

MORE!!"

"Yes, yes, yes! AHAHAHAA!!!"

 

"But now I'm tired of stuffing. Let's go back to making those weird round ball things."

 

 

 

 

(Hey. Waaaiit a second.....)

AHHHHH FOOLED YOU!!

 

Thanks to Karen M., Karen L., Meg, Amy B., Terri W., Jessica C., Laura W., Rebekah, & Cortney of Rock City Cake Co. for guaranteeing I'll never look at a turkey cake the same way again. (And for having a wicked sense of humor!)
