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? ;)

I'll Drink to That!

HAPPY MEXICAN INDEPENDENCE DAY!!

Woohoo! Way to get all independent and stuff, Mexico!

(Pass the Corona.)

Wait. What? It's *not* Mexican Independence Day? But it makes so much sense: we have 4th of July, they have 5 of Mayo - it's perfect! And we can drink to that!

Well, fine.

HAPPY EDIBLE SOMBRERO DAY!!

Yes, it's a sombrero. Trust me.

So are these:

Lovely little piles of...sombreros.

And this:

We just need to keep drinking until they make sense!

(Pass the Corona.)

Hmm? What's that? I still don't have it right? UG. Fine.

A-HA! Here we go. Sorry about the previous confusion, guys.

HAPPY "EAT A MEXICAN" DAY!!


Whoah. If ever a cake needed beer goggles...

But wait, there's more!

And more...



And more...


And lots, lots more:

Plus another sombrero. Huzzah.

NOW can we head to the bar?

I think I need a drink.


Thanks to Andrea E., Selana, Danielle H., Mary H., Lauren R., Ashley A., Anony M., Melanie, & Sarah D., who think we should always celebrate cultural diversity with cake head effigies and 2-for-1 happy hours.

Notes from john: Just a couple of things to remember-
1. Mexican Independence Day is September 16th.
2. We didn't make the cakes.
3. Thank you.

Class Acts

Hey there, teachers! This week is for you! So, in honor of Teacher Appreciation Week, we'd like to say thanks to all teachers, past and present, the only way we know how:


With embarrassingly ironic school cakes.
It's the least we can do for you, teachers. After all, you've taught us so many invaluable lessons.

 

 

Like punctuation...
Read this out loud. You'll sound like "William," "Shatner."

...basic math...
I'm guessing the flux capacitor costs extra.
...and creative writing!
This is why you don't submit cake orders via Twitter.
Yes, teachers, if you hadn't taught us these basic skills, we might end up looking like total boobs!
And just think what would happen to our stick-figure drawing skills!
You're responsible for molding us from the very beginning...
Sure, just put those letters anywhere.
...all the way into adulthood, preparing us for the outside world!
I gradulate this wreckorator for making me water the keyboard. Through my nose.
So, teachers, we salute you - because even if I broke the safety scissors, slept through class, and skipped most of Senior year...
...I don't think I turned out so bad, after all.

 

 

Thanks to Aimee S., Anonymous 1 & 2, Cassandra B., Cassie P., Holly H., Jennifer C., and Sarah F. for these school house wrecks.

 

Say, have you thanked a teacher today?
