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? ;)

Hey Nurse, Slip Me Some Tongue!

No, I'm not making a move on a medical professional; I'm just ordering some cake, Latvian style.

Check it:

According to the UK Telegraph:

"At the Hospitalis Restaurant in Riga, Latvia, staff dressed in nurse uniforms serve up a macabre cake topped with realistic-looking body parts such as fingers, noses and tongues..."

Yummy. I particularly like the tongues draping over the edge. And is that... ear hair?

Plus, with all those noses you know it has to smell funny.
(bah-dum-bump!)

Uh, Joyce? Check, please.

Great Wrecks in History

Back when the atomic bomb first "hit" the international scene, it became fashionable to not only wear nuclear-explosion-styled hats, but also to serve cakes in the shape of that oh-so-appetizing mushroom cloud:


Here we have Admiral Blandy and his wife hosting one of the "raddest" parties this side of Hiroshima. After being served this devastatingly delicious treat, guests sipped Molotov cocktails and danced the night away to Ella Fitzgerald's "It's Too Darn Hot".

Shaun, you da bomb.
