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? ;)

Beachy Keen

Ah, the heady, celebratory days of summer:

 

Say this with your teeth gritted, and you'll sound like Sean Connery. 

Ohh, and while you're at it, repeat after me:

 

Ha! Although really it should sound more like, "Schuck it, Trebek."

(Don't get it? This should help.)

 

Where was I?

Oh, right.

 

So, school's out, and it's time for that quintessential summer activity:

Fun and sun at the beach!

 Gee. Way to sell it, bakers.

 

Mmmm. Radioactive wasteland has never looked so...mildewy.

 

Uh, guys? Is this what I think it is?

Black "water," two plastic ships, found on the shelf in August of 2010... 

 OH NO YOU DID NOT, BAKERS.

 (Yep, I really waited two whole years to post this wreck. The first person to cry "too soon!" has to eat it. :D)

 

Well, if an edible oil spill isn't your thing, then how about an edible hurricane?

 DOLPHIN!

(If you get that reference you win two gold stars and a 'nother cow.)

 You know, on second thought, I think I'll just stay inside this summer. Seem safer that way. Y'all have fun out there, y'hear?

 

Thanks to today's wreckporters Hillary I., Audrey P., Kristen S., Jessica N., Hope R., & Thia S. for reminding me why I don't leave the house.

Reading Comprehension -101

"Yes, I'd like it to read, 'Congrats, Michelle! You're graduated!" with green leaves all over, to match the invitations."

  (Now make like a tree, and GET OUT OF HERE.)

 

"And write '2011' somewhere on the cake, too."

(Sometimes I choose to believe the baker was just being a smart ass. It makes it less sad, and more like something I would do. :D)

 

"Hi, I'd like this graduation cake design here, but could you move the plastic grad cap more to the middle? And then write '2011' where the hat would be?"

(I'm not sure what that thing below Connor's name is - maybe a stethoscope?)

 

And now, your final exam: what happens when you order a cake with silver and gold accents for a school's graduation luncheon?

 

Ding ding ding!

You get an A PLUS IN RED PEN!
