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? ;)

Because you can never be too safe, that's why.

Famous for their Dance Dance Revolution play-offs...offs.

You tech guys know a PEBKAC when you see one, right?

That's "Problem Exists Between Keyboard And Cake."

By the way, here's a tip from a former tech support phone operator*: if you're ever told you have an I.D. ten T. error, get a second opinion. Unless, of course, you're using your CD-ROM tray as a cup holder or mouse as a foot pedal**. Then it's an accurate assessment.

* That would be me.

**Yes, it's happened.

Moving on...

If only this had said "Patti Love heart <3 you"...

then it still wouldn't have made any sense.

"Let's see...I could write 'Amanda' in the Happy Birthday bubble, OR..."

Poor Adamwithblueflowers. Grade school musta been murder.

Wreck Spotting

Here at Cake Wrecks we tend to cycle through cakes pretty fast. In fact, if Jen's aunt hadn't been visiting and putting a cramp in her style, I wouldn't have had to wait to post today's Wreck for...uh, nearly a month.

So first, I want you to note that today's Wreck is, and I quote, a "Custom Decoration."

See? Told you.

I would also like you to note that Tres Leches is a milk cake. No fruit, no filling, just milk, cake, and icing.

And that's why this Wreck is a Wreck for women of all ages...


Alyce C., don't pad the truth, now: Does this bakery's Tres Leches give you wings?
