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? ;)

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.

Erring on the Side of Caution...Is Still Erring

I admit it: this may partially be my fault.

[wicked grin]

See, Wreckerators now have the following dilemma:

1. Actual cake "decorating" could land them here on Cake Wrecks, but

2. they still have to put something on their cakes, so...

3.

Bada bing, bada boom.

"Yes sir, there's NO WAY this groom's cake will end up on Cake Wrecks now. Hah! Take THAT, Jen!"

Ah, thank goodness for technology. Who needs airbrushes, poo swirls, and plastic flotsam now?

FYI, Wreckerators: spell check is not missing-word check.

This bakery is covering all the bases:

Mmm. Papery.

Just don't try this at home, folks. Remember, these people are what we call "professionals."


"Is it edible? Well, sure, I suppose... Uh, do you need extra fiber?"
