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? ;)

The Most Wonderful Time...

Hi all, Anne-Marie-the-Wrecksistant here!

Some years back, there was this Staples commercial that featured a Dad gleefully stocking up on back-to-school supplies, while his two sullen tots trailed hopelessly along behind him. The jolly little ditty about it being the most wonderful time of the year played merrily in the background, and I, the mother of a teen myself, always felt my heart lift a little as I contemplated the first day of school.

[slapping my own hand] Bad mommy! Bad mommy!

Anyway, whether you're thrilled about the day after Labor Day or not, there are plenty of cakes to celebrate with:

"No, sweety-luvvy-kins, spray painting the bus will NOT get you a day off from school. They'll just send another one."

"And don't let this give you any ideas, either."



[sigh] "Ok, yes, if your bus driver has a big bloody grin, tells you to 'Jump in im back,' and the other kids are screaming warnings from the windows, then we can talk.

"But that's not going to happen! So, out you go. Chop chop. Bus is waiting.

"Look, do you know what happens to little tykes who complain about school? Hm? The Poop Nose Snaggletooth Dog-a-saurus comes after them!"

"He'll eat your homework first...and then YOU for dessert!"

[Screaming child runs toward waiting schoolbus]

Ahhhhhh... silence at last! This really is the most wonderful time of the year.

Wait, that just reminded me of something. Soon I'll have to start my holiday shopping.

Aw, crap.

Thank for the reminder, Tiffany, Allison I., Stephanie P. & Kylie. Really.

Wrong Bumblebee

"Hi there! I'd like to order a Transformers cake. I really like this one...


"...but do you think you could put Bumblebee on it instead of Optimus Prime? You can? Great! Thanks."

[Later...]

Mary S., maybe the Wreckerator was going for the world's best Decepticon. Eh?

Naaahh.
