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? ;)

Did You See That Ludicrous Display Sunday Night?

Now that we've all had a day to recover, let's review:

The Panters:

 

played the Bronchos:

(Dangit, now I want brownie nachos.)

 

in the annual:

Poopy Party!!

 

That, or maybe the Bronco's
played the Phanters:

 

At the Super Bwol:

Which makes me want to play the Princess Bride "Mawwaige" speech again.

 

There were some... interesting... predictions:

 

And plenty of questionable advice:

(Pfft. Everyone knows you dribble at Football, bakers. I mean, COME ON.)

 

And though the [INSERT WINNING TEAM] prevailed in the end, the important thing is that both sides had terrible, terrible cakes.

 

 

And also that puppymonkeybaby has scarred us all for life. [shudder]

 

Now, let's get back to celebrating some real milestones, mmkay?

There's the spirit.

The Bananas Are Totally Helping: Women Weirdly Wearing Cake

Since I started this blog I've seen my share of cakes crammed onto real live ladies. Here's a croquembouche dress:

(Ballsy.)

 

Here's a cupcake skirt:

(I'd eat that.)

 

And here's an edible wedding dress guaranteed to make you never want an edible wedding dress:

[slowly backing away in horror]

 

But all of that pales in comparison to whatever the heck is happening in this photo:

Now, I know there's a lot of crazy to take in up there, but keep your eyes on the bananas.

See them?

Good.

Now you can scroll down:

Ta-daaaa!

Ok, so, a few things:

1) There are now bananas artfully draped on the womens' shoulders. I bet you never thought someone could artfully drape a banana. Or that someone would consider a conjoined torso cake with real live ladies sticking out of either end an appetizing idea. BUT THERE THEY BOTH ARE.

2) The candles. Why? Is this a birthday party?

3) WAIT. Is it Beetlejuice's birthday? THAT WOULD EXPLAIN... well, at least the stripey parts.

4) Now I want shrimp cocktail.

5) You Beetlejuice fans got that one. You're welcome.

 

Thanks to Amy, Evelyn D., Jessica S., & Jemma S. for sending in those pics with absolutely no explanation. I mean, it's just more fun to imagine all the many, MANY reasons why this is a thing that happened.

[thinking]

I'll, uh, come up with one eventually, I'm sure.
