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? ;)

Maybe He Likes Feet?

When you run a restaurant in Asia, and you want to put some fancy English script on one of your display cakes, maybe you shouldn't ask the waiter you just fired to help translate.

Just a thought.

Don't worry, Rebecca M.; I'm sure he was only kidding.

Note: Yes, this photo really was taken in a restaurant in Asia. Beyond that, I don't have any details - so let's just hope a vengeful waiter really was the culprit.


What's This?

Earlier today John had the song "What's This?" from Nightmare Before Christmas stuck in his head.

After looking at these Wrecks, now *I* do.


What's this? What's this?
There's color everywhere

What's this?
There's white things in the air


What's this?

It's orange and so hairy - what's the deal with those two berries? I don't care!
What's this?


What's this? What's this?
I can't believe my eyes,

What's this?
A donkey tank surprise?

What's this? A swirly mass so curly, could the purple be too girly? Should this song be ending early? No we're going 'til we hurl-y!!


What's this?


Could it be, oh could it be? Did I get my wish?

Here's something that makes sense: a meteorite bird fiiiish!

What's this?



What's this? What's this? There's something very wrong!

What's this? That blue thing's really long.

What's this?

It's positively crappy, and yet I feel so happy, have I possibly gone sappy? I think I need a nappy 'cuz this song is kind of rappy so I guess I'll get a frappey and go shopping at the Gappy...




S.K., Patrick T., Chris E., Reagan B., Rebekah W., Austin L., Alex S., Kaylyn M., & Mikaela, your guess is as good as mine.


Oh, and for your continued "enjoyment" I have a special treat today: while we were writing this post, John & #1 (aka "the other Jen") kept singing it to get the cadence right. really entertaining.

So, I decided to tape them.


There were a few interruptions, but overall I think you'll find their don't have the volume up too loud, k?




(If you're wondering what my contribution is here, I'm the one doing the scrolling. And giggling.)


Update from john: Please note that no animals were harmed during the making of this video. :)
