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? ;)

Sunday Sweets Goes Back To School

Hey, kids, guess what time it is!

(By Klara's Cakes)

That's right, it's Back-to-School Time!

(Well, except for Mrs. Griffin.)

 

Time to buy a bunch of those composition books,

(By pure cake)

 

...and maybe a graphing calculator that costs half as much as the Space Shuttle,

(By Charm City Cakes)

 

...and stuff them into a spiffy new backpack.

(By Birdie Girl Custom Cakes)

 

Time to start juggling school and extracurricular activities again, from sports...

(By Pink Cake Box)

 

...to Marching Band

(By Aunt Jaime's Cakes)

 

...to maybe Robotics Club?

(By Yuma Couture Cakes)

(Remember, kids: if it becomes self-aware and destroys the school, you don't get credit!)

 

Time to catch the bus,

(By AESTHETICAKES)

or carpool, or scooter, or bike, or start walking.

 

Don't forget your lunch on the way out!

(By Studio Cake)

*blink*

We're gonna need a bigger lunch box.

 

Oh, hey, maybe grab one of these, too:

(By Ciccio Cakes)

Because you're going to spend a lot of time with your teachers.

 

Although, from what I hear...

(By Sweet Art Sweets)

...sometimes teachers wouldn't mind a few Sweets along with all those apples. :)

 

Hope today's post made your Sunday a little sweeter, everyone! Happy weekend!

Friday Favs 8/15/14

Some of my favorite new submissions this week:

 

The End Is Nigh! Quick, grab the essentials!

(That's peanut butter cake, right?)
(EXCELLENT.)

 

Misspelled?
Check.
Sperm balloons?
Checkity check.
Unintentionally suggestive inscription?

CHECK, PLEASE.

 

They tell me this is supposed to be a unicorn:

Yeeeeeeah.

 

Ever have something that's meant to be sweet & solemn strike you as funny?

If not, then prepare to judge me.

IN YOUR FACE.

 

I love it when things get so weird that even the baker doesn't know what's going on:

There's a metaphor for life in here somewhere.

 

And now...
the greatest baby butt shower cake...

OF ALL TIME.

(Photo removed at the baker's request. Please enjoy this lovely picture of Epcot.)

 

(Aw, Pooh.)

"Uh-oh, the legs have gone all stiff & creepy!

Quick, STICK A BOW ON IT."

 

Thanks to Jenn A., Michelle V., Cassandra F., Christina T., Dulcie H., & Anony M. for proving that's still less creepy than the human version.
