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? ;)

Sweet Dreams

As someone who's battled insomnia for most of my adult life, I know just how valuable a soothing bedtime story can be. So, my fellow sleepless-in-wherevers, this one's for you.

[hem ahem hem]

*whispering*

Once upon a time...

there was a baby who was very sleepy.

The baby's undead friends, however, kept asking:

Yes, throughout the long nights, the baby's best buds howled and screamed and demanded that he stay awake, and play!

One day the baby thought, Maybe if I disguise myself as a ladybug and hide in the forest, my friends won't be able to find me to ask me to play!

 

And so, chopping off his own arms and legs, he did.

But, alas! His buggy disguise soon attracted a sticky swarm of monster ladybugs.

They crawled in his hair and tickled his ears and the baby forgot about sleep for another night.

 

Maybe, the baby thought next, if I cover myself with a big blanket, I won't hear my friends calling me!

And so, plugging his little ears, he did.

But, alas! His friend Mr. Bubbles had a very loud and squeaky nose:

Plus, Mr. Bubbles' chainsaws were terribly noisy.

 

I know! The baby thought at last. I'll hide in this cake! Then I can nap as long as I want.

And so, burrowing into the soft spongy layers, he did.

But, alas! The cake was Mr. Monkey's birthday cake.

 

***The End***

 

Now, who wants seconds?

Do You Wanna Bake a Snowman?

With Frozen all the rage right now, I thought we'd take a look at the new design going like gangbusters at local bakeries. It's supposed to look like this:

Which is a bit... odd. I mean, I guess those are snow-capped mountains - and Anna's floating down a river, hip-deep in a glacier? Ok, sure. But how do the bakers get the mountains to stick up like that?

 

Short answer? They don't.

Oooh, look. A cut-off toe-sock. With some glitter.

[jazz hands]
FROZEN!!

 

Of course, it could be worse.

Like this!

Frozen has left the building, kids. I think it melted.
(Well, except for the plastic snowflakes. THANK GOODNESS FOR THE PLASTIC SNOWFLAKES.)

 

Seriously, cake kit peeps, I AM DISSAPOINT. No Sven? No Elsa?!

Well, FINE, then. I guess I'll just go back to my favorite Little Pony.

>.<

Or I hear pie is nice.

 

Thanks to Mandy S., Ashley, & Michaela for keeping these wrecks on ice.
