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? ;)

This was in the display window of a bakery in Austria.
Which is interesting, since I had no idea Austrians were INSANE.

Still, my knee-jerk reaction? This hip fondant feat kicks butt! Yep, those limber "pedals" should "garter" serious props from the ankle-biters.

Now, who wants to see Footlight Parade?

(Count the puns, my friends. COUNT 'EM.)

Trish B., I bet this cake costs an arm and a... aw, you know.

Better Late Than Never: Happy New Year!

I guess technically I *did* wish y'all a Wreckalicious new year back on the 1st, but so many late, great New Year's Wrecks have come in that I figured an encore was called for.

Let's kick things off with some of the most creative letter cramming I've seen:

To err is human, and to arr is pirate - but to kill the "r" by stomping on it with a "yea" is allll Wreckerator.

Speaking of creative, I didn't know we could write 2010 as a fraction!

May your 2010 be at least 2% better than 2009.
And may all your zeros have squishy yellow handles.

Something tells me this martini was shaken, not stirred:

And aren't you glad you have me here to tell you that was supposed to be a martini?

This year, let's remember to celebrate all of the punctuation marks:

Yep, here's to you, "!"! Next week we'll raise our glasses to the semicolon.

And, of course, I saved my favorite for last:

It's hard to appreciate a Wreckerator who's this far ahead of his/her time.

Jami R., Berry D., Hannah, Jamie P., Pam S., & Katie C., since the new year has already started, I'm just going to wish you a happy new "yea." So. yeah.
