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? ;)

Turkey Cake BARES ALL!

It's that time of year again, everyone: International Nude Day!

Time to strip off those sequined hot pants and walk around the office the way the good Lord intended:

Flexing.

I ditched the scratchy old office chair from last time, btw. Now I sit on a big rubber exercise ball. I like to bounce.

*squicksquicksquick*

So, since I'm feeling extra manly, how 'bout we check out some MANLY cakes?!

*squick*

Hey, look! A fishing lure!

I hate fishing.

[Note to self: ask Jen to think of clever fly fishing puns]

 

Which reminds me...

I hate football, too.

[Also ask Jen for ball puns. Forward pass? Touchdown? Hmm...]

*squicksquicksquick*

 

Who's up for carrot cake?!

I really hate carrots.

*squicksquickSQUIRK*

[Note to self: buy more antibacterial wipes]

 

Here's a fun fact: Facebook almost banned us last week for a cake we posted three months ago. (I swear I'm not making this up.)

This is the cake someone reported:

It's a turkey.

A happy, attentive little turkey.

Anyhoo, apparently someone went back through three whole months of our FB photos before reaching that one and flagging it as "nudity." (I swear I am not making this up.)

So I'm guessing they missed last week's patriotic "rocket" cakes.

Heheheheheheh.

So in conclusion, here's a dinosaur head:

Remember to specify "dinosaur nudity" when you report us.

 

Thanks to Melissa C., Brielle R., Jodee R., Lauren A., & Ginger W. for the dino MIGHT.

Sunday Sweets: Gettin' Geeky Wit It

Today is Embrace Your Geekness Day, my friends, and I intend to DO JUST THAT.

Because like cake, there are many flavors of geek fandom - and I love them all.

Granted, I love some more than others:

(By Chatter Cakes)

NO LIE.

 

I about fell over when I found not only a cake of my favorite video game character of all time - I found an AMAZING cake of him:

(By Oakleaf Cakes)

[Kermit flail] SONGBIRD!!

Songbird here is a whopping three feet tall, and was made for Irrational Games. And I love him. You can check out the amazing build photos here.

 

Who else loves Avatar? And I don't mean the blue guys:

I let the anime style scare me off of The Last Airbender for far too long, but it only took a single episode last year to get me hooked. And the sequel series, Legend of Korra? AMAZEBALLS.

 

Shout out to all the real anime geeks out there:

(By rub-a-duckie)

I can spot Naruto, but the rest of your cosplay always keeps me guessing. :D

 

Here's a fun mash-up of two shows John and I love:

(By Nerdache Cakes)

Ponies and Supernatural!

Would you look at that "salt" circle? And a bucket of blood has never been cuter. Seriously.

 

It's not all shows and video games, though. Being a geek also makes me want to learn more about programming and electronics:

John and I have done some simple stuff, wiring up LEDs for various cosplays, but my dream is to build my own nixie tube clock from scratch.

 

Because I can never get too much steampunk. NEVAH!

(By Tasty Layers)

 

Here's one for the Brown Coats:

Shiny.

 

And the Whovians:

(By Curiaussiety Cakes)

(And Minecrafters!)

 

And the... uh... Middle Earthers? Do Tolkien geeks have a nick name?

(Submitted by Emily H. and made by Cakerator)

Regardless, can you believe this Witch-king of Angmar is cake?!

 

And finally, can't forget superheroes and comic books - because what geek girl doesn't want to be Wonder Woman?

(By Cakes by Raewyn)

Though I might settle for this cake. So pretty.

Hope you're doing something geeky today, guys! And hey, if you found this post relevant to your interests, then you might like my other blog, Epbot, where I post everything from great convention pics to game reviews and DIY projects.
