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? ;)

It's Official: Bakers Hate The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

I don't know why, minions, but it's true: bakers hate the Ninja Turtles.

How else can you explain this?


Or this?



Aw, a lobster reached across his face and tried to flex. SO CUTE.


So fierce are the flames of this loathing that some bakers are driven - DRIVEN, I say - to churn out new turtle-'trocities every week!

But why?


Did they hear "Cowabunga" one too many times as a child?

Is this retribution for the Turtles' anchovy & fudge sauce pizza orders?



Are these bakers secret members of The Foot Clan?!


Or - and this one is truly unthinkable - do they not like the new theme song*?

♫ The good guys win and bad guys lose! ♪

Whatever the reason, bakers, can't we all just get along?

And stop shoving spoons in Raphael's face?

After all, bakers, we really don't need you destroying our childhood heroes.


We have movie producers for that.*

Six Hilariously Wrong Wedding Cake Monograms

 Not everyone is fully fluent in text speak and common abbreviations, so let's cut these couples a little slack, mkay?

Right after we finish laughing, I mean.


*Do Not Attempt


Hey, guys! You've just make the most serious vow of either of your lifetimes.

Aw, just kidding. Really. It's no big deal.



Some of these could be chalked up to a simple oversight, but this? How could you NOT notice your monogram spells something?

I know it's an old joke, but...

...nope, that's pretty much it.


Hey, you're not superstitious, are you? Because some people might be tempted to take this as a sign:

It's all in the delivery.


And finally, my wedding monogram of the month:

[head in hands]

I can't decide if I'm more delighted or horrified that their accent color was blood red. I'm delorrified.
Or horrighted.

No, wait: I've had time to think about it, and I'm definitely delorrified. Mostly 'cuz that's how I'd describe Marty when he gets stranded in 1955. Right? Delorrified? Eh?

(You're welcome, BttF fans.)


Thanks to Amy M., Bobbi K., Deanna F., Maegan, Ruth H., Kimberly W. for the initial discomfort.
