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? ;)

Ahh, M&Ms. Am I right? Except the green ones really have no effect on me, so that's totally false advertising right there. Well, unless bloating counts. (No? Then, no.)

So anyway, what could be better than M&Ms on cake? And it's so easy! Just sprinkle a few tastefully here and there, and...


Yeah, well. I'd still eat it.

Or, if you're really ambitious, you could just cover the whole cake with 'em:

You missed a few spots.

Or, let's say you want the cake to scream "M&Ms!" only without using any:

"Rawr! We are the dread pirate M&Ms!"

Red: "Really? I thought we were zombie dinosaurs."

Blue: "Ug. Judging by this thing on my head I'd say we're pigeon targets."

And for you master bakers, why not try a beautifully sculpted, full size M&M guy?

Maybe try a recipe with a little less collagen, though.

And finally, your moment of migraine-inducing zen:

Can't read it?

The trick is to half cross your eyes, tilt your head at a precise 42 degree angle to the right, and then have a friend hit you soundly across the face with a stapler.

Or just keep staring. You'll feel the same either way in about five minutes.

Kerum S., Janet, Marcus J., John D., & Jessica S., not that stapler. That's my stapler. Don't touch my stapler.


Directionally Challenged

When it absolutely, positively has to be spelled out in living color:

...these wreckerators know how to deliver.

My guess is ordering a cake with "Deaonerax" on it will always be wreckworthy...

...whatever the case may be.

And something tells me this customer may have been in arrears*:

But I'm sure it all worked out in the end.

(*arrears = "behind in paying money that is owed." *snort* *snicker* *giggle*)

Hey, ever wonder what goes down at the scene of a literal LOL? Well, thanks to Mel. B., reality show "star," now we know:

Thanks to Kendra C., Dea B., and Katie M., who, of all my Wreckporters, are literally the most recent.

**Also, a big "congrateralutaions" to Dana, who we *hope* responded in the affirmative to her main squeeze Greg's oh-so decent proposal this morning. Be sure to send us pics of your wedding cake, guys! :)
