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? ;)

Demons of "Stupity"

I'm sure this will be shocking to absolutely none of you, but I've always been a big Dilbert fan. Probably because he reminds me so much of my Dad, who I think is an engineer, but to this day I couldn't tell you exactly what he does for a living. (Words like "quality" and "resource" and "Brillouin-Scattering Centro-Symmetrical Birefringence" factor in there somehow, I believe.)

Anyway, for those of you not familiar with the strip, Dilbert's dog Dogbert likes to go around exorcising people of their stupidity, like so:


Which is pretty hilarious, and also what Leni's coworkers wanted on their department manager's birthday cake.

Instead, they got this:

And that's "unintentional irony" for the win!

Score!!

Ponder If You Will...

Sometimes, looking at all the photos you guys send in, I'm presented with one of life's little mysteries.

For example, how is it that we live in a world where these are supposed to be guitars...

(Love the random tree. Because when you think "electric guitar",
naturally you think "nature.")


(Thank goodness Wreckerators are starting to put miniature plastic versions of what
the CCC* is supposed to be
on the CCC*. It's quite sporting of them to give us
a hint.)

(Here, there, and everywhere: hip, hip, it's hip to be square!)

...but this is not?


Hey, kudos to the decorator for trying to get some more mileage out of his or her guitar-shaped cake pan, but really...Really? A beer bottle? Really?

Freya F., Jill B., & Joe C., really.

* Patooey! (Just a friendly reminder to always cleanse your palate after uttering the foul name of the dreaded cupcake-cake.)
