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? ;)

Mr. Howard? Your thoughts?




Summer Lovin'

So tell me, Wreckies, how are you enjoying your summer?

Sorry, I mean, "Sumer?"

Or is it "Sumeer?"

You know what, just to be safe, let's sell both versions.

And then make this one the store display, so everyone can see it:

I like to be happy, summetime.


Well, however you spell it, I hope you're taking this time to enjoy a little sun.

Or a large, red-eyed spider crawling out of your cake.


And that you're working on your tan:

Or dismembering Edward Cullen. (Hey bakers, where's the glitter?)


Of course, the only acceptable foot wear right now are flip-flops:

Emphasis on the "flops."


And every meal should end with a hefty slice of watermelon:

Preferably the seedless kind. Unless you're be expecting.

(See what I did there?)


And since these are the lazy days of summer we're talking about, you should be taking lots of breaks:

Stickin' it to the man. Or in this case, the customer.


Maybe visit the pit of despair community swimming pool?

"Watch out, kids, I'm about to throw another one down."


Or just spend a few quiet evenings walking the beach, looking for seashells and/or body parts:

Who wants ribs?
