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 $1,000 Gets You In Texas

Groom's cake: $400


Wedding cake: $600

Having the two biggest wrecks in a state where everything's bigger?

Priceless.


(Okay, not really; it's a thousand dollars.)


Thanks for putting those Longhorn cakes in perspective, Shelley G.

It's getting about that time again. You know the one, don't you?

Thaaat's right! The one where Wreckerators wrestle with the seemingly simple "Congratulations."

For some reason, various unholy alliances of the words "graduation" and "congratulations" keep popping up:

"Gratulation"

"Gradulation"

"Congraduations"

(Your soul dies a little more with each one of these, doesn't it?)

"Whatever this says."

"Happy Graduations"?!?

Oh. Wait. Actually, that's almost correct. I wonder if someone forgot the "L."

There's a theory floating around that some of these word mash-ups are intentional; a "cute" misspelling to save the decorator from writing out the overly long and excessively complicated "congratulations graduate."

To this I say: [rude noise].

Good grief, people, you're celebrating an educational achievement! This is not the time for "cutesy" misspellings! So just write out "Congrats" and be done with it! That's not so hard, is it?!?

Excuse me. [sound of head hitting desk repeatedly] This may be a while.

In the meantime, enjoy your cake with the bottle of urine/beer on it.
(Either way,
someone's getting pissed.) (Because in Britain "pissed" = "drunk." See? I'm even funny in different languages.*)
