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? ;)

Oh What a Difference a Letter Can Bake

Sure, they're easy mistakes; anyone can make them. And really, you wouldn't think that one letter would matter all that much in the grand scheme of things, would you?

Well, until now.

I think I speak for young Matthew here when I say: if he gets birthday racks, his day will most definitely rock.

Dude, even if this cake made sense, it wouldn't make sense.

Wait. You mean you didn't intend to introduce your man to the exclamation point?

Alright, listen up, "A": It's just a jump to the left...

And "R", now you step to the rii-iii-iiight.

Teasers for the Coming Seasons

There's nothing like the holiday season to put bakers in "the mood" - uh, to decorate cakes, of course. ;)

Why, last year we had so much fabulous Wreckage submitted from October through January that I couldn't get them posted fast enough! So here's a little sneak peek at what Wreckerators may have in store for you the next few months.

Halloween has its "monsters":

Gee, Frankenstein certainly looks hard up.

Thanksgiving has its "turkeys":

Outlines: making the vaguely suggestive so much more specifically nutty.

And "Winter" has...er...these things:

"Bat those baby blues at me all you want: I will NOT turn the photo around!"

Jill P., Anony M., & Barbara R., I would salute you, but these Wrecks beat me to it.
