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? ;)

"Baby" Showers

Some cakes make you wonder what species of baby is being welcomed into the world:

"Extra, extra! Read all about it! Swamp Thing procreates!
Becomes spokesperson for cloth diapers!"


I think this is a monkey.

[German accent] "Wouldst you like to touch my monkey? Touch him! LOVE HIM!!"

And finally, we have our mutant flippered pig-child of perpetual worry:

Or maybe that's pain; it probably hurts to be skewered through the hand with a rose stem.

Does This Cake Make Me Look Fat?

Attn parents: the last photo in today's post is not appropriate for the little ones.

So you're making a Doritos-run to your local grocery store, and you see this:

And for some reason many of you are convinced by this chipped, yellowing, choking-hazard of a cake that photo cakes are a "grrrr-reat!" idea. So you run home, rifle through the blackmail folder, and order up gems like these:

And when you combine embarrassing candids with the "skill" of a seasoned Wreckerator, you can achieve a level of Wreckage never before imagined by the culinary world.

Your job: find the creepiest photo of the birthday girl possible - swirling light vortex and glowing red eyes a plus.

Wreckerator's job: place photo off-center and try to use up all this extra orange icing.

(the orange is on the bottom border)

Great job, team!

Or here's an idea:

Hand out little tubes of icing and invite guests to black out teeth, draw on mustaches, etc. That'll make the birthday girl feel special.

Here's an option for you creative types:

Photoshop: lending the honky some jammin' style since 1984.

Photo cakes are also a great way to remind friends what happened during their last black out:


Or why their new nickname is "the dragon":

Ah, cameras and alcohol: a match made in Cake Wrecks heaven.
