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? ;)

Sometimes You Really Have To Go-Go

(Note: In case your Wham's a little rusty, I've embedded the music video at the bottom of today's post.)

(Also, "Rusty Wham" is the name of my Peter Gabriel cover band.)


You caught me off guard right from the start

You got me all fired up with your bean pop tarts

My colon's not been the same

Goes a-Bang-Bang-Bang 'til I start to strain


But something's wrong here

Something ain't right

My roommate told me what you did last night

Left a "present" in my bed


 I was sleepin',  but the smell could've raised the dead!

Wake me up before you go-go

'Cuz poopin' in a girl's bed's a no-no

Wake me up before you go-go

I don't want to be here when you need two-ply

Wake me up before you go-go

I think this date has just reached a new low

Wake me up before you go-go

Better yet, take a hike

 I really do not liiiiike 

(yeah, yeah!)


You left your skid marks on my duvet

 And if they don't wash out then you're gonna pay

What the heck, man, have you no shame? 


The term "crappy date"'ll never be the same.

'Cuz you're so crazy, I'm a fool 

Shoulda known better when you peed the pool

Get out, baby, this ain't right

 'Scuse my British, but you're so full of shite!


Wake me up before you go-go

I think this date has just reached a new low

Wake me up before you go-go

Better yet, take a hike

I really do not liiiiike!



(No, no, no!)

Thanks to Jennifer G., Erin S., Kathy B., R.W., Kylie N., Becki N., Marisa F.,  Jamie G., Colleen C., Leigh B., Chelsea H., & Lisa R., for helping me get that out of my system.




Meanwhile, at the Unintentionally Erotic Bakery...

"Deb, you've outdone yourself!"

"Aww, thanks, Pat!"

"So, what do you call it?"

"Well, with all the candied cherries on there, I'm thinking...'THE CHERRY POPPIN' CANDY CASTLE!' What do you think?"

"I like it."

"AND, we can throw in a half dozen 'Tunnel of Love' cookies with each order!"

"Oooh, good idea! Especially since no one but those college guys will buy any."

"Yeah...I guess the extra icing must be turning people off - too many calories. Remember how that lady said they weren't family-friendly?"

"That was kind of wierd. Must be one of those health nuts."

"Aw, you know how it is. People are so paranoid about what they put in their mouths these days."


Thanks to Anony M. & Christina P. for the great spread.
