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? ;)

Sunday Sweets: Story Time Sweets

Once Upon a Time...

...in the Kingdom of Zuu,

(By Artisan Cake Company)

lived a helpful young owl his Mom had named Huu.

 

Huu danced with Petunia when she did ballet,

(By Dinky Doodle)

 

and untangled Sloth when bars got in the way.

(By Conjurer's Kitchen)

 

He always had time to tie Sally's red bows,

(By Planet Cake)

 

and if Hedgie asked, Huu would polish his nose.

(By Debbie Does Cakes)

 

When Flamingos ran errands, he'd stay with their chicks,

(By Mike's Amazing Cakes)

 

and he made sure that George ate the greens, not the sticks.

(By Planet Cake)

 

Huu'd help Raffi up when he fell in a heap,

(By Sprinkles Cakes)

 

and he sang lullabies, to help Flo go to sleep.

(By Little Cherry Cake Co. for Cake Bomb)

 

He prattled with penguins,

(By Janet MacPherson Cake Craft)

 

he combed all the llamas,

(By Viva la Cake)

 

he even helped meerkats put on clean pajamas.

(By Dootsy Dora)

And after all that, our Huu still wasn't through.

On Sunday, he shared all of his Sweets with you.

 

Happy Sunday!

Friday Favs, 2/20/15

Some of my favorite new submission this week:

Tara wanted rock n' roll:

 

...but what she got was wreck n' woe:

Aww. Play us the song of your people, little wreck!

["Wa wa WA waaaaaaaah!"]

Ok, you can stop now.

 

This next one inspired me to write a little verse:

Wishing                                                                                             

Hoping            and such

                               Jo you s

SPAAAACE!

 

And speaking of proper spacing:

That's pretty memorable.

(Give it a second.)
(Theeere it is.)

 

You know how some bakers like to keep an eye on their cakes?

Well, that reminded me of this older wreck:

THIS CHANGES... well, nothing.

But I thought it was funny.

 

Q: What's worse than using giant plastic ribbon all over the cake?

A: Not using enough.

What we have here is a basic misunderstanding of how ribbon works.

 

And finally, since I just realized I haven't shared a fan-made wreck in ages, here's a fun homage from Kimberly:

The best part? I give it a month before this starts popping up in "cake fail" slideshows all across the web, since the FailBuzzLOL sites never bother to read the posts they're ripping off, and keep putting up intentional fan wrecks from our archives. :D

 

I bet Steven's is safe, though - and yep, he actually asked the baker to write this:

That's definitely a "darned if you do, darned if you don't" situation, bakers.

BUT I'M NOT SORRY.

[evil grin]

 

Thanks to Tara M., Jenna R., Mark O., Terri C., Tabatha G., Julia E., Kimberly S., & Steven B. for finally finding a wreck no one else will steal. AWWW YEAAAAAH.
