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? ;)

Somebody Check Those Brownies...


...'cuz I think these Wreckerators are getting the munchies.

And it's really not pretty.


"Dude. You know what would be AWESOME right now? Fruity Pebbles."

Sure, that makes sense. Really. And go ahead and just put it out there on the shelf with all the other cakes, like it's not weird. Go on. Thaaat's it. Perfect.

"Naw, man, what we NEED are tacos."

How nice of them to write, "It's A TACO."

I guess there wasn't room for "It's A TACO, IDIOT."

"Ooooh, or PIZZA! Man, I am seriously jonesing for some pizza right now."

My friends, there is officially a first time for everything. Including albino pizza.

Oh, and "Albino Pizza" is the cool band name of the day. Tell your friends.

"Dude. Dude. Dude. LISTEN.

"We have GOT to get some fries."

"Aw, YES! From Mickey D's!"


"No way, man, I don't like the way their burgers look at me. So not cool."

(Admit it: a drug-induced hallucination would explain a lot here.)

"K, dude, forget the fries. We need something, like, totally bad for us. Something...AMAZING. Something like...onion ringos.

"Yeah, totally. What are onion ringos?"

"DUUUUDE. C'mon. Onion ringos? Like, with the beer batter and ketchup?

"OOOH. Right. Onion ringos. Yeah. Totally."

Totally.

Hey Sarah, Michelle & Eli, Candy W., Crystal P., Allison P., Barbara, & Jason C., you know Prop 19 in California? The one that sought to legalize marijuana? Well, it didn't pass. And I know of at least one place that's pretty bummed:

John's Birthday Suit

It's my birthdy! And by "my" I mean it's john (the hubby of Jen)'s birthay. Granted, I don't usually speak of myself in the third person (unless I'm in the midst of seduction [which, admittedly, rarely works (but John never knows unless he tries!)])...but...um...where was I?

Oh, yeah: It's my birhday!

I originally wanted to write about those Canadian Nazi carrots you can buy at Epcot, but then I figured I'd just show you a bunch of misspelled cakes, so my own misspellings look international. Because I'm crazy like that. And giving. Yep, John's a giver.

[eyebrow waggle]

Look! A misspelling!

I believe it's spelled "Shirk." And since I did avoid seeing the last movie, this kind of works.

Isn't this called an oxymaroon?

Although if you roll the "r" while reading it out loud, you'll sound just like Sherk! Go on. Try it.

See what I mean? Now, all together: "Grrrreet job, don-kay!"

This one also seems a little contradictionary:

"Stop that right this second! Don't make me pull this event over!"

And since you long-time Wreckies know how fond I am of Earth Day cakes...


Listen! Do you smell Epcot?

And finally, this is not a cake, but I've gotta say...

...I pay way more for Jen's pasties.

Hm? What's this? Jen's telling me "pasties" are also British meat pies.

John thinks she's trying to tell him something. [eyebrow waggle]

John also would like to know why Jen rolls her eyes so much.

And now, because it's my brithday, I want to give you something special. Yes, that's right: John wants to give you something.

[duckface]

[Barry White music]

Awwww yeahhh. Mmmmmmm, baaaby. John knows what you want:

Cake Wrecks stuff!

So, leave me a comment, and I'll pick the sexiest two to win personalized copies of Cake Wrecks. (I'll even let Jen sign 'em.) The next sexiest two will win Cake Wrecks wall calendars.

In fact, because I'm such a giver, we're going to give stuff away every day this week, with even *more* give-aways on Facebook. Who loves me? Who is it? Oh yeah, it's you. Mmmhmmm. Happy briday to ME.

Check tomorrow's post for the winner's names, and also for your next chance to win stuff. Also watch the CW Facebook page this week for more chances to win exclusive CW pin packs and assorted goodies.
