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? ;)

It's Your Big Day, Deer!

I've always thought hunting-themed cakes were somewhat inappropriate for a groom's cake. In fact, when it comes to distasteful metaphors, I'm pretty sure this has the best shot at killing the mood:

Hey, the only thing missing is a little veil on the dead deer's head! That's right, blushing brides: You've been bagged and tagged...WITH LOVE.

Also, check out the poor little doe standing nearby. You can almost hear her saying, "Henry? HENRY, SPEAK TO ME!!" (Because all male deer are named Henry. Obviously.)

So, in addition to insinuating that the groom has metaphorically killed the bride - who is a male deer (have fun, Freud!) - the metaphor is also saying he broke up another couple in the process?

Wow.

Um...

Ice cream with that?

 

You know, K.J., my own wedding theme was "The Search is Over," because John and I like 80s ballads. After seeing this, I'm thinking we should have gone with "Hit Me With Your Best Shot" instead. "Fire away!"
