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? ;)

Thank A Vet, But Not With These Cakes

How To Honor A Veteran On Veterans Day:

1) Start by spelling it right.

"Vertirns"

 

2) Now make sure you spelled it right.

"Vetern's"

 

3) No, really, maybe take 20 seconds out of your day to attempt some minimal effort for the people who literally risked their lives for you, if only because you're a professional baker and YOU'RE BEING PAID TO DO THIS.

"Vetirns"

::deadpan stare, breathing hard::

 

Or, you know, go back to making bizarrely wangish flag tumors:

 

...and adding blue stripes to the flag:

The rest of us will just be over here, looking at pies.

 

Thanks to Abby B., Kirsten F., Rebekah F., Lynn B., & Michelle S. for proving sometimes cake is NOT the best choice.

The Post-Halloween Blues (And Drippy Oranges)

'Twas the week after Halloween,
(Such a sad tale to tell),
Of all the spooptacular cakes
That somehow failed to sell.

 

Dried up pumpkin donuts,

 

Poltergeists calling, "Bo bo"

 

Plus all manner of K-K-Kupcakes

...a definite "No-No."

 

Runny candy corn noses,

 

And all things smeary and old,

 

Is it really a wonder
That this one never sold?

[shudder]

 

So farewell, poop-kin river,

 

Farewell, slime-haired wrecks!

And brace yourselves, minions;
Thanksgiving is next.

 

Thanks to Elizabeth M., Attia S., Kat L., Andrea M., Janet P., Jodee R., Amy W., Chris V., & Amy J. for the spoopy send-off.
