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? ;)

Marine Wild Life: The Big 2-3-3!

I'm indebted to reader Amy O. for not only informing me that today is the Marine Corps' birthday, but for also providing a little Wreckage to go with! Now, her e-mail was positively loaded with important-sounding acronyms, but from what I could decipher she gets to inspect some of the DFAC's (that's dining facilities) cakey creations over in Iraq - you know, when she's not defending truth, justice, and top-secret acronym-creations.

To be fair, this isn't too bad. Someone just hit the "align right" button before piping in "Devil Dogs":

(That little smudgie next to the "s" is supposed to be an exclamation mark.) There are more spacing issues around the logo, too, and speaking of which... Uh, Amy, I think I need to look up the Marines' logo again, because that bit below the eagle looks like a...well... [shifty eyes]

Never mind. I got enough flak today for the Mario Lopez eye candy remark. ;)

SO...how 'bout that wonky "s" and "f" in "semper fi", eh? I mean, hey, what's THAT all about?

Watch a Cake Being Wrecked

Lots of you are sending this in, so I figured I'd share. A few caveats first, though:

1) No, it's not professionally made.
2) Yes, I'm bending the rules by including it here on Wrecks.

Why?

A) Like the CCC, this "technique" must be stopped for the greater good.
B) It's really funny.
C) Mario Lopez in an apron! Hellooo, eye candy!

$500?!? Really? I think Wreckporter Gemma L. said it best: "If you'll fall for that then I know a Nigerian Prince who wants to talk to you."
