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? ;)

A Cake Wrecks Christmas Card

There are so many ways to say it.

With a smile:

With a kiss:

Or even with a song:

But WE choose to say it with confusing torso anatomy and a kiester on Santa's front end:

So on behalf of myself, john (the hubby of Jen), and our fabulous-smelling guest writers Lindsey and Sharyn, allow me to wish you all:

Oops, sorry; I think that's missing something.

Theeeere we go.

Now, go spend some time with your loved ones, and try not to start any fights with the in-laws, mmkay?


Thanks to Kendra M., Dani, Tylar M., Connie E., Bubba W., & Donna K. for being my wrecky little helpers.


Jingle Bell Shocks

Stockings around the Christmas tree

Look so bad that your jaw drops.


Once he got a good look at them

Santa Claus went into shock.


Who comes up with these Christmas cakes?

Have the bakers lost their minds?


Did they drink too much spiced eggnog?

Or are they legally blind?


You will see a glut of flotsam pieces as you neeear

Cakes that just won't make you jolly


Hey, d'you think that might be holly?

Shocking amounts of frosting, these

Might send you right 'round the bend


Will you hold out for better cakes

Or just buy these in the end?



[sing it with me, now!]

Diiiing doooong,



A choir of thanks to Maryann M., Janet G., Kadmi, Megan K., Katherine D., Jackson L., Ann M., Jenna C., Ashley S., & Grainne, who all want to go Christmas caroling with Sharyn. Me, too, guys. ME, TOO.
