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? ;)

A Picture Is Worth...Well, This Many Words

Say, just what kind of Mickey Mouse operation do you think they're running here?



Hey, laugh all you want; I'm just impressed they spelled it right.

It's like music to my eyes. Really.

Ok, not really.

And if you think e-mailing a picture to the bakery helps...think again.


Hey, a print-out of the entire Wikipedia source file still counts as a picture, right? Right?

Michael B., Jennifer C. & Jim H., Amber C., & Jessica C., I think I'd steal two icing roses in protest of that cake, too.

Sam's Club

Frequently, a bakery will receive a kit of plastic flotsam to construct a cakey character. This past week, the character of choice has been dear old Uncle Sam. Or at least, I think it has.

 

As a reminder, here's Uncle Sam:

 

Cake, you say? Your wish is my command, Sammy!

 

 

 

Pinstripes have never been more slimming.
Why, you can practically see right through him!

 


I was unaware that Uncle Sam had access to my grandfather's closet:

 

Remember: The higher you hike your pants, the more you love America!


Here Uncle Sam stars (and stripes) in "Red, White, and You!: A Musical"


Aaand...Jazz hands! Kick, ball, change... kick, ball, change...

 

 


Sweet Betsy Ross' ghost, are those cannonballs in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me?

 

Ug, I can't look at these wretched CCC's any longer. I need to see a real cake that actually looks somewhat like the famous personification of our Federal Government, Uncle Sam. C'mon, bakers!

 

 

A Shih Tzu wearing a popcorn bucket. Wow.
God Bless America.

 

 

You know, Asia P, Shelley B., Kayla T., Jordan J., and Beckie, that last cake could also be rock guitarist Buckethead, famous for shredding out tunes while sporting a Kentucky Fried Chicken bucket on his head. Hey, I smell a conspiracy! Or maybe just too much icing...
