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? ;)

And for goodness' sake, don't get all fancy and try to use shorthand to save time:

It's like a code. An excessively punctuated code.

Whatever happens, though, you can take comfort in knowing that every order is personally inspected and signed off on by a supervisor:

Thanks, Patricia.

Although I think you missed the giant 3 masquerading as a "W."
Just sayin'.

Elizabeth, Monica, & Steve P., now you know. And according to the shirt I'm wearing today, knowing is half the battle. (The other half is LASERS.)

Who's up for a snowball fight?

(I can't tell if the middle guy is volunteering or flipping me off.)

A pink bowling pin + a pair of bowling balls = everyone's mind in the gutter.

The Force is strong with this one.

Who needs third base?

Gee, these bones look a little dry. Do you suppose the grill chef is a master baster?

Carrie, Meg N., Tracy, Melanie V., Carrie G., & Amy L., I hear it relieves tension.

Grilling. I'm talking about grilling.
