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? ;)

The Pink-Haired Puppet Master

I've had a lot of folks send me this music video. Love it or hate it, you'll probably find yourself oddly mesmerized by the dancing puppets and pink-haired teeny-bopper. Of course, my favorite bit is at 1:30 - check it out:

With a little movie magic, though, the end result is - of course - plastic.

It seems this video has quite the disturbing fan base. For example, Jon J. tells me the story behind this next cake is "rather embarrassing":

And given the inscription, and the fact that it was for someone's 18th birthday, I can only imagine. Or try not to - yikes. Sometimes, ignorance is bliss.

Wreck-Slingers, Part 2

Aaaand here he is: the man of the hour, our hero of the day, the one, the only...Spider-Man!!


Uh, Spider-Man? Hello?

Dang it, I guess we just missed him. Or, judging by the shape that cake is in, maybe we missed him a few weeks ago. Ew.

He's got to be around her somewhere, though; look:

Wow, that "web" is a real piece of...work. Yeah. I particularly like the baby-blue border; very...heroic.

Oh, wait, I think I see him over there - helloo-ooo! Spider-Man!

My, he's looking rather moody today, isn't he? And on all that chipper baby-blue and urine-yellow icing, too. Hey, Spidey, being controlled by an evil symbiote is no excuse to ignore proffered fist bumps, alright? So be nice.

Ah, and there he goes, slinking off again:

Dude, you could probably just walk across the... uh, say, what IS that? An electrical box? Gymnasium floor? What?

Ok, time for the Wreck-Slingers big finish! Ready? Aaand...

Jazz Hands!!
