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? ;)

No Mean Feet

If you want a simple theme for a baby shower, it's hard to go wrong with cute little footprints.

Unless the baker misses the "little" part, of course:

 

 Good grief, MY feet are smaller than that. Are you trying to give the mom-to-be a heart attack, bakers?

 

'Cuz if so, this is also an excellent way to go about it:

"Suddenly Nicola's plans for a natural, drug-free delivery seemed really, really stupid."

And how's the kid even fitting in there, Nicola? Do you have a TARDIS belly? o.0

 

Oh, wait, or maybe the kid is shaped like this:

 On the plus side, he probably won't fall over much.

 

But we were talking about footprints, weren't we?

Which might be what these are supposed to be. Maybe. Allegedly.

 

Hey, ever wanted to see a duck with human feet that only walks backwards?

Well, tough. You're going to see one anyway:

Embrace the insanity. 

And then waddle backwards with it.

 

"Sadly, little Mike's dream of becoming a professional dancer came with a slight disadvantage:"

And here I thought that was just a figure of speech.

 

Of course, the absolute creepiest thing you can do with a footprints shower theme is mistake "footprints" for actual feet:

Somewhere a quartet of elves is literally foot-loose and fancy-free*. 

And probably pissed.

 

*If by "fancy" you mean "feet."

 

Thanks to today's arch-enemies [smirk] Layli S., Arlene P., Linda A., Gianna M., Anony M., Melissa B., & Becca H. for the sole-full feets.

JOEY DOESN'T SHARE FOOD

Last week someone in a Facebook group I belong to asked a question that made the rest of us sit up and take notice.

The question was, "Does my arm look like a turkey leg?"

And you guys, it totally did.

It turns out this is intentional; Rachel here is dressing up as Thanksgiving Dinner for an upcoming marathon. So the next time you need a pick-me-up, just think of Rachel, running around in public, dressed as a giant turkey dinner.

 

And the next time you see a turkey cake, remember this oh-so-seamless segue:

 

Does this look like a turkey leg?

'Cuz it's their "specialty."

 

 

How 'bout this one?

 

Ahh, but nothing beats this beauty:

'Tis the season... to run screaming from the bakery!

 

Rest assured Rachel will be way ahead of us... wearing shoes with pies on them:

Have I mentioned Rachel is my hero?

 

Thanks to Amanda G., Emily J., Amy O., Bucklebee, & Rachel, who I'm sure would never forgive me if I didn't include the most appropriate Joey gif of all:

You're welcome.
