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? ;)

You Know, The Red Soxes? The Famous Soccer Team?

Ahh, sports cliches. Just like cake wrecks, they may talk a good game:


...but they're rarely a slam dunk:


And if they don't always bat 1000,

...well, that's just par for the course.
(Or rather, "poo for the course.")


Besides, when the gloves come off?


Well, let's just say they are really, REALLY off.


Talk about a curve ball, how many fingers are on that thing?


Here's one way out of left "feild."

Ooooh, swing and a miss.


Well, wreckerators, what can I say? The ball's in your court.

And that's a whole lot of dribblin'. Just saying.


So remember, bakers, keep your eye on the ball, step up to the plate, be a team player, and most importantly, be sure to celebrate Sports Cliché Week with a real knockout cake.


And thanks to Kristi S., Jessica S., Julie Anne, Kara S., L, Elizabeth B., Laura M., & Angela J. for challenging me to keep the ball jokes to a minimum for once. IT WASN'T EASY, lemme tell ya.

The Cake Said WHAT?

When you see the same ol' "happy birthday" butchered day after day, you learn to cherish the cakes that break the mold and say something truly unique.

Whoah, thought that said something a little off-color for a sec!
(Who else saw "Jerk?")


Anyway, I've been collecting some of the better examples for ages now, and as I started scrolling through them today I realized they told a kind of story.

It helps if you imagine them as a conversation between two people.

And also if you're a little drunk.











D'awww. Brings a little tear to the eye, doesn't it?
(I mean, who's giving away "chrildren?")


Thanks to Mike B., Julie R., Marissa D., Nancy M., Jack W., Anony M., Another Anony, Jennifer W., Bethany P., Libby M., & Julie N. for proving a cake can be worth a thousand questions.
