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? ;)

No Excuses? Here, Try These

Dear Jen,

Help! It's July and there are no good holidays coming up, plus no birthdays in my family, and I WANT CAKE. Can you help?

- Cakeless in Cincinnati

 

Dear Cakeless,

My dear wrecky minion, you've come to the right place. Fact is, there are lots of excuses for cake, if you only learn to celebrate the little things in life.

A few suggestions:

I POOPED TODAY!

Depending on your fiber intake, I bet some of you could celebrate this EVERY day.

 

My '99 Nokia Still Works!

Leslie claims this was supposed to say "Old friends are the best." But think about it: can you play Candy Crush on your friends while you're pooping? NO YOU CANNOT.

I rest my case.

 

It Was Just a Heat Rash!

Time will tell.

(Actually, Rebecca tells me this was supposed to say "Baby." Is she telling the truth? Mmmm... PERHAPS.)

 

I'm A Pleasant Dining Companion!

Especially while eating cake.

 

That Thing Is Over!

SUCH a relief, am I right?

 

But maybe none of these apply to you, Cakeless.
In that case, here's one for just about everybody:

Not Dead Yet!

In fact, I think we should all congratulate each other for not being dead yet.

So, congratulations, guys.

And sorry, ghosts-with-internet-access.

 

Thanks to Alyssa V., Rebecca W., Leslie M., Emilie F., Scott D., & Kat R. for the perfect excuse.

Directionally Challenged

What happened to these wrecks?

I'LL NEVER TELL.

But I bet you can figure it out.

:D

 

 

 

 

 

And now, your wrecky moment of Zen:

Dawn actually wanted a cake wreck for her friend's birthday, so she asked her bakery to misspell the name and write, "Hearts and sprinkles" on the edges - but with NO hearts or sprinkles on the cake. Instead, what did she get?

"Hearts and Sprinkles! They even spelled Lindsey's name right!," Dawn writes. "That should tell you just how rare and wonderful it is to get a Cake Wreck. You can't even order them!"

Nice try, Dawn, but this just goes to show: a determined wrecker can even wreck a wreck.

 

Thanks to Denise B., Jen J., Jennifer S., Lindsay F., Sarah F., Make A., and Dawn O. on top and underneat that, a big smiley face.
