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? ;)

Just in Time for the Holidays

It's been a long time coming, but the day has finally arrived: that's right, Wrecks fans, you can now purchase your very own Cake Wrecks apron, t-shirt, or fridge magnet. Let the rejoicing (and gratuitous holiday shopping) begin!

Everything pictured is available in a variety of colors, so be sure to check out the Cake Wrecks Zazzle Gallery to see all the options. There's also a ladies' "Wreck On" tee and that coveted fridge magnet over there, which I know you won't want to miss. ;)

These are just a few initial offerings, and I'd like to thank Erica Gamet, co-chair of the Denver chapter of InDesign User Group, for creating the "fun & games" apron and t-shirt design. If you'd like to take a crack at designing a shirt for the site, feel free to e-mail me. If I decide to use your design you'll get fame, glory, personal props from yours truly, and a link to your website or blog here on Cake Wrecks. Now that's a reward money can't buy. (Ok, that's a lie. But my personal props are really, really expensive.)

As a bonus, everything you buy before midnight tomorrow (11/20) on Zazzle is 10% off! Just use the code "zazzlepaypal" when you checkout.

Happy Shopping!


Undeserving of Congrats

The mom-to-be was having triplets, so they ordered a cake with "congratulations" written on it three times:


On the other end of the spectrum, all they asked for here was "congratulations". Unfortunately the decorator took that to be plural...

Aaand much hilarity ensued.

Melanie U. and Wedge C., er, well done.
