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? ;)

Send Up the Jolly Roger!

Today is Talk Like a Pirate Day, but rather than plunder the script of the Disney Pirates ride like I usually do, I've decided to instead look at that most iconic of piratey things: the Jolly Roger. 

Now, the Jolly Roger is usually a skull and crossbones on a black flag:


But when recreated on a cookie: becomes a petrified Scottish Terrier.

Or maybe a French Poodle. Or German Shepherd. Irish Wolfhound? Oh! Norwegian Ridgeback! English Bulldog!!



For those less canine-inclined, there's also this option:

Those look like some real fun guys. Dude. 


Here's one that'll strike fear in the hearts of witches and wizards everywhere:

No bones about it: There is now a Dark Mark on this bakery's record. Tsk, tsk.


And if you think that'd be better without all the airbrushing...

You'd be right.

But it also kind of looks like a moose.


And finally, my personal favorite:

The Jolly Roger from American Dad.




Relax; I'm sure he means you no harrrrrrm.


Thanks to Alana F., Cheryl L., Melissa F., Roxanne B., & Robin H. for all the pirated material. Now, chocolate moose, anyone?


Caught In The Act

For years, bakers have tried to deny it.

"My balloons look like what? Really?! Well, I never. How could you even suggest such a thing? I'm aghast! I'm stunned! I'm [checking thesaurus] chagrined! Why, I would never...




"Yeah, okay. You got me. Those are totally sperm.

"But how do you like my rose buds?"


Thanks to Rebecca B., who only mentioned that they misspelled "We'll." She's a forgiving sort, that one.
