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? ;)

I Got A Super Bowl Fever, And The Only Prescription Is MORE CAKE

Don't cry because it's over, minions:

Be HAPPY because it's over.


By "it" I of course mean that ludicrous display last night, wherein the team with the leaping cat logo:

(Aw, he's wearing lil' red boxer shorts!)

...played some other team whose logo isn't wrecked nearly as often.


Seriously, look at this thing:

Da heck?


I had to look up the real graphic just to see how many drugs these bakers were taking.



All the drugs.


Fun Fact: As I write this the game is actually still going on; I only stopped to watch a little of Lady Gaga's warm-up act (C-, no dancing, would not watch again), then lost interest after her part (which was awesome) was over.

John seemed to actually like the boring non-fireworks parts, though, and took it upon himself to explain some of the game to me while I waited for Gaga and asked perfectly pertinent questions like, "What's with the butt flap towels?" and "Why is that guy wearing a fanny pack?" and, just to prove I wasn't ONLY staring at tight ends, "How long NOW 'til half time?"

Anyway, I don't remember much, but I'm pretty sure this is a line of scrimmage:

It's virtually projected on the field, though, so basically the whole game is a lie.


And this is what the players yell at Tom Brady when his back is turned:

I'm sure they mean it with love.


And finally, THIS is the way to get me more interested in sports:

It's what's for dinner.

Now, I wanted to end with a cake of an owl playing football, but alas, I couldn't find one.
So instead, here's an owl clearly doing a touchdown dance:
