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 Wrecky Infamy is Spreading

Here's a report sent in from the front lines by brave Wreckporter Mrs. Tantrum:

"I wanted to let you know that I attempted this morning to discreetly take a photo of a spider cupcake wreck at my local [name removed to prevent possible lynching] store with my phone. Apparently the bakery manager and store manager are on to the Cake Wreck Blog, because I was shouted at by both of them "NO PHOTOGRAPHING OF THE CAKES!" I told them I was sending the photo to my husband to see if it was the one he wanted for the party today, they replied "No you aren't, you're going to send it to that cake wreck blog like everyone else."

YES!! The power! The absolute power! The universe is mine to command, to CONTROOOL!!

[picking self off floor] Whoops - sorry 'bout that, Mrs. Tantrum; just took a little power trip there.

SO... anybody else get the spider-wreck photo? :)

Marcus and the New Job

So Marcus gets a job with Gateway computers, and his old office mates get him a cake to say goodbye:

Obviously, this raises a few questions.

Going by the illustration, either Marcus is a wee little man or Gateway has had so many budget cuts that they're back to using the Colossus computers from World War II. Marcus also has three legs and types with his feet. He's lucky, though, because he's been hired at Gateway's exclusive beach-front cubicle office, where each week's work is delivered via the time-tested "message-in-a-bottle" method.

OR...

The bakery lost the order and slapped something together at the last minute.

One of those two, anyway. I think I like the first explanation better, though.

Maryn M., I agree: the word "enable" should probably never be on a cake.
