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? ;)

Anyone else having flashbacks of Tasha Yar's death scene?


Thanks to Megan G., Candace R., Alisha T., Catie S., & Suzanne S., who all "exceed expectations." Mostly because my expectations are really, really low.

Ready, Aim...

Pink slips are so last decade, employers. This time, why not spice up your "restructuring program" with an element of fun?

Oooh, I love Quessing games! What?!


He can't even be mad, 'cuz he gets a cake out of it.




Sorry, Mike.


From another Mike, who's obviously better off:

Let's just assume this Mike was their copy editor.

It's funnier that way.


Of course, no matter how you end up leaving a job, it's never easy to say goodbye:

...or to spell "good riddance."


At least you know your co-workers will miss you!

Or... not.


And for those of you thinking of quitting via cake...

Don't be surprised if your boss decides to respond in kind:
