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? ;)

Don't forget the ice!

Granted, I'm a little biased. Mmmm, steampunk.

 

- A Clock

So you won't be late!

 

Or how about this one, which has removable side ornaments for each month of the year:

The guests got to choose their favorite section and take it home as a keepsake. So cool!

Bubbly bubbly. Isn't that a funny word? BUBBLY.
