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? ;)

To Err is Human, To Arr is Pirate

Ahoy, ye mangy landlubbers! Do ye not know what today is?

Oh, ye be wanting a hint, do ye?

Blimey, that poop deck makes it clear as bilge water, aye? It's International Talk Like A Pirate Day, a'course!

Now, how many doubloons am I offered for this winsome wench? Ye did ask for the redhead, did ye not?

Nay?

What else could ye be wanting, ye scurvy dogs? P'raps...some scurvy dogs?

Skull and crossbones me arse: Those be the Dread Pirate Scotties!

Avast, every Buccaneer needs a shipshape Man O' War, savvy?

Blow me down, what hornswagglery is this? The bilge-sucking scallywag responsible must be found, hung from the yardarm, keelhauled, and then made to walk the plank! Arrr!

OR...we could let the Kraken send him down to Davy Jones' locker:


Aye, me hearties; dead men fell no sails.

Allison F., Mandy R., Alana F., Suzanne B., & Laura G., I've never been to Boston in the fall. How 'bout you?

Two Thumbs Up!

Ah, it warms the very cockles of my heart to see Hollywood embracing the Wreckage.

For example, check out what showed up on this week's episode of Glee:

As I'm sure you've guessed, this was for the shop teacher who'd just returned to work after accidentally cutting off his thumbs. Naturally they served him a whole hand, too, which he then had to eat without the benefit of a fork:

It's enough to make me think we need a new spin-off: Awkward Cake Wreck Photos. Eh? Guys?

"Ok," you're thinking, "but that's just a TV show. No one would actually order..."

"Uh..."

"Ack!"

Yeeeah. You were saying?

Oh, and we can't forget this gem:

(Yes, it's a repeat; I just couldn't help myself.)

MV, Angela A., & Anony M., thanks for giving me a hand with this post; I think we nailed it.
