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? ;)

Wrecking Dawn

I realize many of you aren't up to date with the Twilight series, but don't worry: I'm here for you.

Besides, according to Wikipedia this latest installment of sparkly vampires and shirt-o-phobic werewolves is really just your basic story of love, marriage, childbirth, and C-sections performed with teeth.

Aren't you glad I went with "teeth" instead of "C-section?"

No?

Oh. Ok. Here ya go:

Um...There's a sucker born every minute?

 

A few more things you need to know about Twilight:

1. Vampires "sparkle" in almost exactly the way this cake doesn't.

 

Werewolves, on the other hand...

They glisten.

 

2. Vampire family trees are really complicated...

...but are perfect for celebrating a 6-year-old's birthday.

 

3. The red thing is an apple.

Or a tomato, in case you hate the movie.

 

4. If you're a vampire, then this is a pick-up line:

If not, then no amount of body glitter will help you. Sorry, fellas. (Besides, I'm pretty sure the pink plastic fangs would be a dead giveaway.)

 

Thanks to wreckporters Cathy B., Heidi D., Kate B., Christopher L., Anony M., Hayley & Hillary, & Jill M. for today's stake-out.

 

Hey Orlando!  We'll see you tonight at 7pm for our last show.  WOOHOO!!!

Spellbinding

You know what makes a date like 11/11/11 even MORE "magical"?

A cake shaped like a beautiful leather-bound book of spells, of course!

Er... hang on, I have the right incantation around here somewhere...

A-ha! Here it is!

"Expecto Vomitorium!"

 

I can see you're speechless.

I tend to have that effect on people.

 

And now, using only the powers of my mind, I will summon forth...

*poof!*

the groom's underwear!

***

Well, well, well.

I see they don't call him "The Texas Longhorn" for nuthin'. [wink]

 

Speaking of which, have you met my trusty familiar, the frog formerly known as "Prince?"

He's a naughty little thing, that frog; lately he's taken to robbing nunneries.

Try as I might, I just can't seem to get him out of the habit.

 

Now, I know what you're thinking: "my gosh, that was a fabulous pun."

Yes, yes it was.

However, you may also be thinking my froggy familiar looks more like an octopus.

Well, he's not.

In fact, every time I try to summon an octopus I just get one of these:

Yeah. The Spirit World thinks it's a real "komeedianne."

 

Thanks to wiz kids Maddison S., Pete & Erica, Kristen J, & Lisa H., who'd rather pretend they didn't see that.
