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? ;)

Two Bee Red Allowed

Ah, those pesky homophones. How I love them.

Let this be a lesson to you, kids; a silent candle is a safe candle.

Sweeeet.

Oh, and whatever animal left those paw prints needs some serious help. Or possibly surgery.


At hour 5, he turns back into a quivering mass of jelly.
