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? ;)

More Monkey Business

 

I don't know where the monkey-themed CCC trend started, but we here at Cake Wrecks think it's just bananas.

 

I'm having a hard time figuring how those cupcake apendages are supposed to be legs. I mean, even the monkey looks confused. Not good.
Good grief! Well, you know those Hollywood monkey CCCs: Their faces just get more plastic every year.
This next little critter looks less like a monkey and more like my high school French teacher*:

 

"Monsieur Maurice! You and your poo belly are under arrest! Drop the mustard bottle and hand over the garden hose, s'il vous plait!"
*My high school French teacher was a woman. The resemblance is uncanny. I'm not kidding.
You know what they say: "If it's shaped like a star in a wheelbarrow, then it's just begging for a face and a tail."
I'm pretty sure that's an Irish proverb, Ashlee M., Malisa I., and Jenn & Tim M. Now, quit monkeying around and get back to work!

This Just In

While I agree that cake makes even bad news at least a little sweeter, there's still a right and a wrong way to break some news.

This is why fortune tellers should never become bakers.



[on the phone] "No, of course we're not celebrating that you didn't get parole, Trish; there's a frowny face on your cake and everything!"

Why, yes, that IS a used pregnancy test on the cake.
(And you thought I'd never post it!)

"People, I have some good news, and I have some bad news. The good news: This is our last all-day staff meeting! Yeah!

"The bad news: We're going out of business because we can't afford the mortgage any longer.

"But wait! There's more good news: we have a cake."

"Oh, and more bad news: they spelled 'mortgage' wrong. Still, if one of you can get this baker fired and then take his or her job, then that's actually good news, right? Right? Guys? Where are you going? Hey, at least leave me a slice of cake! C'mon!"

Alicia A., Natalie H., Anony M., & Morganna B. were recognized as "Wreckporters of the Day" this morning in a brief online ceremony. Sadly, they received no cake.
