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? ;)

What The Buck


Hi-ho! It's Number 1 again. You know, lately, maybe due to hunting season (wait, when IS hunting season?) we've seen an influx of deer cakes. Now, sure, the customers got a raw deal with these wrecks, but as an animal-lover I think it's also important to see things from the deer's perspective.


Take this guy. Here he was, minding his own business, when someone came along and punched him in the eye!

Poor defenseless little creat.... wait, is that a cupcake cake? Gimme your rifle.



Just think of how difficult it must have been for this cross-eyed deer to see his way out of the forest fire:
"My rack! My rack! My rack is on fi-yurrr!"


(Why am I suddenly craving roasted almonds?)


And do you know how hard it is for poor Stumpy here to navigate the forest underbrush on a Roomba?


Frankly, my deer, it sucks.



Our next friend is just swell:
Somebody get Puffy here a Benadryl.



So, the next time you're faced with a wrecky deer cake, don't be so quick to judge. They've been through a lot, what with hunters and fires and allergic reactions and earthquakes and killer bee swarms... so can we just vow to leave these vulnerable deer alone??



OMG, wait. This one looks delicious.


Fudgy icing, angel hair pasta, and raspberry jam? That's great taste and execution!



Thanks, Marisa W., Terri C., Bonnie, cewest84, and Zephyr! If you ever hoof it over to my side of town, give me a rein! You're all I really caribou, and I promise not to leave you stag! (Not really. Please don't call me.)



Great Expectations

There are plenty of ways to tell your friends, family, and significant others that you're pregnant.

I wouldn't recommend any of these.



U R j/k, right?

Yeah, when breaking news this big you should really spell it out:

(You're doing *what* to a baby?)

Especially for your better half:


Sounds serious.

And on her birthday, too.

This one gets a little saucy:

Say it with me now:

"It's in there."

(Ah, Retro commercial slogans for the win!)

Still, when someone has been trying for so long to achieve what comes naturally to others, it's only right that we celebrate such a monumental accomplishment:

See, they managed to squeeze the "m" in.

Thanks to Wreckporters Margo K., Roberto S., Margaret J., Cheri P., & Kristen B., who are all expecting.


Oh! A large piece of cake, I mean. Yeah, they're expecting cake.

Sorry about that pregnant pause there; I was distracted by my own little bun in the oven.

It's cinnamon. It smells delicious.
