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? ;)

We Are SO Gonna Get In Trouble For This One...

You know when your waiter at a restaurant tells you that you look like somebody really famous, and you're always secretly terrified they're going to say it's Gary Busey or a "heftier" version of Macauley Culkin?

Or is that just me?

Well, we got this awesome Batman cake in a while ago, and I couldn't for the life of me figure out who it reminded me of. Here, see if it rings any bells for you...

Let's see, strong chin, luscious full lips, surgically enhanced cheek bones...Who could it be?

Oh, wait, now I remember.

This lady:

Remember to use your inside voices when you screech in terror, mmkay, class? Inside voices. That's better. Now. See the resemblance? No?

[clickety-click, mouse, mouse, click] (that's the sound of mad-Photoshop-skills at work)

Ok, how 'bout now?

See? Just like the cake.
Only, you know, with a side of eye-clawing terror.


Enjoy it while you can, Cewest; I figure we have approximately 4 minutes before someone tries to sue us.

Note: The woman pictured is the infamous "Cat Woman." She has had extensive plastic surgery, and enjoys being seen and photographed in public like any other celebrity. Since she chooses to look this way, we thought including her photo would be more appropriate than, say, Jay Leno's. Since some of you have still found this offensive, however, rest assured that we've nixed all the jokes about Owen Wilson's nose in future posts.

Patriot Day

Today you're going to see a lot of beautiful and touching 9/11 tributes. That's good. If you're like me, you're going to get a little teary-eyed, and maybe it will be a bit harder to remember all the little things you usually laugh about. Maybe that's why you're here. And you know what? That's good, too. We should celebrate our heroes. We should remember our loved ones. But we should also - and with great pride, I might add - eat patriotic donut holes.

Wait.

What?

Oh. Well, as long as it's printed on the label, then I guess it's Ok. Remember, if you don't eat your Patriotic Donut Holes, the terrorists win!

Although now that I'm looking at these things, I do see a problem: There are only red and white donut holes. No blue! Don't think I don't see what's going on here, either. That's right, Canada: I'm watching you.

Those are rather generic for Patriot Day, though, don't you think? Can we get something a little more...I dunno, holiday-specific?


Oh yes, they did. The twin towers...on a cupcake cake. (Patooie!) Wow. And...fireworks? Um. Ohhh kaaay. (Let the debate begin, again!)

Right, maybe we should head back into the generic territory:

Uncle Sam wants YOU...
to work out with teensy little dumbbells. Or turn that frown upside down - twice. Or maybe just enroll in an art class. (Uncle Sam can be a little hard to understand sometimes.)

Hm. Look, there has to be a middle ground between donut holes and icing depictions of the towers, right? How about just a nice, uplifting, appropriately-worded sentiment?

"Never Foget"?

Well, that IS pretty memorable.

Thanks to Cari, Megan, & Jolly D., who are all "unfogetable."
