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.

Which... they kind of did?

Oy, what a crock.

And finally, when Jen tries to post a cake she really shouldn't post and I have to stop her:


Thanks to Rich H., Cindi L., Candice B., Haylie E., & Amber J., who I hope appreciate the irony of my posting a cake I've been telling Jen she can't post for at least 6 years now.
