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? ;)

Guess Who!

ATTENTION CELEBRITY SINGERS: never hire a cake decorator to paint your portrait.

And for the rest of you: can you guess who's who on these cakes? I already gave you a hint. (Answers at bottom.)


Say, do you suppose this Wreckerator realized that "B'day" sounds exactly like "bidet"? That just seems like a bad play, eh? (Hey, these rhymes are unintentional, Ok?)

Did you guess them all? No cheating, now!

Ok, here are your answers:

First:

Tori looks through the looking glass.
Or, you know, the make-you-ugly fun-house glass.


Second:
Ohhh - the album is named "B'day". My bad. Or, M'bad.

And last but not least:

Yikes. I guess she does kind of have crazy eyes - I never noticed before. Huh.

Right, now go grab all your co-workers and see how they do. Chop chop!

"Hey everybody, thish cake ish from Holland. Ishn't that veird?"

Brace yourself, my friends, for what you're about to see may haunt your dreams for the rest of your natural lives, and will most certainly turn you off of acrylic nails.

Ready?

Here it comes...

Just when you thought it was safe to go back to the baby shower, they went and added...

The DREADED MANICURED ALIEN HAND OF DOOM!!!

[drawn-out scream]

Ok, what's worse: the bone-white skin pallor, popped-out belly button that looks like the tied-off end of a balloon, or the fact that Thing-ette there seems to be sucking the life-force out of Octo-Mom Wraith-style?

Now, I have pudgy little Hobbit hands, so my basis of reference is off: tell me, is that hand as disproportionally gargantuan as I think it is?

Kevin V., you musht be toight like a toyger*. Schmoke and a pancake?

*Ok, so the pop-culture references got a little out of hand** in this post. Sorry.

**Get it? Out of hand? Booyah!
