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? ;)

Coming Up Roses

Like love and marriage - or a horse and carriage - icing roses and cakes just go together.

Perhaps I should rephrase that.

What I mean is the two are a really natural combination.

Am I having a seizure? I feel like I'm having a seizure.

A combination of grace, beauty...


...and, of course, cat poop:

And, since roses are one of the first things a baker learns to make - not to mention what they make the most often - you can always trust an icing rose to be the finest example of what a baker can do.

We're doomed.

No, no, I'm sorry; that came out wrong. What I mean is: uh, let's see how they do on rosebuds!

Ok. Yeah. Doomed.

Thanks to Angela G., Elizabeth W., Freidel I., Tiffanie, Christina C., & Ali S., who were hoping to see some icing sleds on that last cake, because they're intellectual like that.

Say What?

If the kids ask, April just got a new bottle of shampoo.


*flap flap flap*


Take note, everyone: "Yoth!" is the new 40.

Be sure to adjust your birthday cards accordingly.

Whoah. Not only did they screw up the "screwed up" inscription, it's a cupcake cake. [patooey!] Now, CCC defenders, I want you to look at all that icing smeared under and around the individual cupcakes, and then I want you to find a real cake, and I want you to apologize to it. Do it! Do it now!!

Ahem.

Hey, you know how some people's "i"s look like "7"s, and their "g"s look like "6"s?

No?

Well, now you do.


A big thanks to Wreckporters J7ll W., Paulette M., Dan7elle S., Barbara M., & Ashle76h.
