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? ;)

Birthday cake for the last post?

It's a term of endearment. Really.


"You'll find he is a whiz of a wiz, if ever a wiz there was!"

I think someone was rolling in the poppy fields a liiittle too long before making this cake. I certainly can't imagine that the Emerald City has ever been portrayed with such a, shall we say, "male" point of view? (Get it? "Point"?) It certainly was erected a bit crookedly, but I won't penalize the decorator for that; he or she made sure that the magnificent seven up there did come in varying sizes. (I'm SO not going there...) And how unfortunate that the lighting reflects pink on the, er, "spires".

Lindsey T from CA, I'd say you struck gold with this find.
