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 Roadkill Café

Here at the Roadkill Café we pride ourselves on serving only the freshest paved paté:

In fact, we have a complete menu! From our killer hors d'oeuvres:

To only the rarest of gently scraped meats!

For only $13.99, you'll have your choice of either Hummer-tenderized gator filet:

Or our Vespa-massaged armadillo, stuffed with the finest of pan-seared bumper frogs:

The kiddies will LOVE our just-in beaver sushi:

And don't forget dessert! You'll want to save room for our magically delicious Creamed Unicorn:

Taste the rainbow!

Anony M., Karen M., Cheryl G., Elizabeth C., Annie, & Lindsay, I'd say this menu is to-die-for.


How to Make a Wreck, Double Time

"Hey, Bob, what do you think of my writing on this cake?"

"Lemme see.
Hm. I dunno, Jackie, I'd try making it a little bigger. Here, let me try."


"Gosh, Bob, you really think that's any better?"

"'s...[alarm sounding] Hey-o! Break time!"


(Later that day, at a Chuck E. Cheese)


"Happy Birthday, Kristy!!"
