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? ;)

Tinkerbells, Tinkerbells

Tink wrecks every day!

Oh what puns there are to write

When a fairy looks this way:

Oy vay!

Tinkerbells, hope this sells,

Clap your hands and pray

Baking skill and caring will

Be back again some day!



Thanks to Becky H., Michael C., Michelle S., and Kelly B. for the jingle.


The Wreckorator's "Bored Book"

From the people who would have liked to have brought you the Star Trek Book of Opposites and Be Bold With Bananas (but didn't) comes:

The Official Wreckerator "Bored Book!"

This delightful picture book will teach budding wreckerators all the letters and words they need to know, all using illustrations only a true wreckerator will recognize!

Take a look at some of these exciting excerpts:

A is for "Apple Tree"


B is for "Break time!"


C is for "Catcher's mitt"

See also: "Caca," "Cry," and "Constipated."


T is for "Tasteful"


I is for "I scream and I sing for ice cream and icing!!"

Also: ineptitude


M is for "Martini"

N is for "No, really, that's supposed to be a frickin' martini glass."


P is for "Patriotism"

(And H is for "headdesk.")


F is for "Fixed it!"

Oh, you.


S is for "Stop."



Thanks to Chelsea P., Lynn J., Maureen, Bonita H., Jason A., Stephanie M., Chantene Z., Melinda A., & Deanna C. for the education. And to the rest of you: I look forward to your letters.
