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? ;)

The Sign Post

 

Better watch out for this bakery, henchpersons:

 

I hear they'll hang you out to dry.

 

"TELL US HoW WE ARE DOing.."

 

"An O you co-A WIN... " uh, some assorted scribbles.

 

Hey, uh, guys?

YOU'RE ON CAKE WRECKS.

What's that tell you?

Now, tell me what the mystery blob with the vaguely butterfly-like thing on it is supposed to be, and we'll call it even.

The bakers wielding the pastry bags aren't the only culprits, though:

 

I've seen a lot of these cakes. They live up to their name.

 

 


Aw, now why is "home made" in quotes? From that gooey ooze dripping out the bottom I can tell it's JUST like "home made." (Love you, Mom!)

 

 

*sigh*

 

 

Personally I don't see how you can use a "thank you," no matter WHICH underwear it might belong to.

 

(Give it a minute.)

(Theeere it is.)



Hey, Melissa P., Jennifer D., April G., Dani, Kelsey H., & Claire M., there's your sign.

Sunday Sweets GOES SHOPPING!

With everyone in a shopping frenzy this weekend, I figured hey, why not make it a FEEDING frenzy... of shopping! Only, you know, in cake.

(This, uh, sounded better in my head.)


So, let's say you're shopping for a sweet Vera Bradley purse:

BAM! That's totally cake!

So you'll have to keep looking.
But still. Amazing, right?

 

Adults can be hard to buy for, but I love shopping for little kids:

Yes, cake! I think only the bottom rockers are real wood.

 

(By Splendor Cakes)

Pew pew!

 

And the most perfect iPod delivery system:

(By Sweet Little Treat)

D'AWWWW.

 

Of course, we big kids like our toys, too:

(By For the Love of Cake)

 

It helps if the person you're buying for has a hobby, of course. Like baking. Or storing cooking utensils in fancy jewelry bags:

But it's hard to go wrong with a little bling for the ladies. Or a LOT of bling.

(By Yener's Way)

 

And don't let the fellas fool you; they like their bling, too:

(By Ron-Ben Israel Cakes)

 

Still, we all know the holidays are all about the GADGETS, am I right?

(By Sweet Jeelees)

Although I still refuse to recognize "phablet" as a word. I JUST WON'T DO IT.

 

Well, here's wishing you every shopping triumph this season, my friends. Oh, and remember to get something for everyone in the family, k?

Happy Sunday!
