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? ;)

Groom-Shooting-The-Bride Wedding Cake Topper, Because LOVE

It's Love Note Day, minions, a time to jot down all your mushiest thoughts and feelings for the one you try hardest not to fart in front of. Because that's love, b*tches.

You know what's also (apparently) love? Ordering a wedding cake of the groom shooting the bride from a helicopter:

In the groom's defense, it's "only" a tranquilizer gun. Because that makes it all better, amirite, ladies?

Also I guess the groom was/is a vet tech who frequently shoots large game animals with tranquilizer darts from helicopters, and the bride was/is OK with being portrayed as a large game animal who needs to be shot with a tranquilizer dart for her wedding, SO THIS IS TOTES ROMANTIC YOU GUYS. Aw yeah, put back the flowers and stock up on the sedatives! ...only don't because now I'm creeping myself out.


Thanks to Lydia B. who joins me in remembering the good ol' days, back when grooms only shot overly metaphorical animals on their wedding cakes. [wistful sigh] Ahhh, good times. Good times.

Sometimes all at the same time:

(By That Baking Girl)

I'd make a kite/balloon/airplane joke here, but I think it'd go over your head.


Let's see, what else?

There are dragonflies:

...and dragons that fly:

(By La Torta Perfetta)

...which means they have to land somewhere.


Don't ever believe pigs can't fly.

(By Carlos Lischetti Sugar Art)

Heck, with enough thrust (or pixie dust) anything can fly.


All the way out of this world!

(By Cakey Cake)


In fact, if I could fly...

(By Alchemists of Cake)

...I think I'd Never Land.

Wouldn't that be Sweet?


Happy Sunday, everyone!
