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? ;)

Hey, Bebeh

"Girl, you lookin' fine. Why don't you come over here, and give daddy a lil' sugar?"

"Check it. I've got a spiky polar-bear-skin rug for us to lounge on, and some suh-weet champagne glasses the size of water coolers. I even put on my navy blue tighty-whities, 'cuz I know how much you dig those.

"What's that, kitten? You like the light blue ones better? No problem."

[patting rug] "This cracked concrete floor is hard, baby, but not as hard as...er...my...devotion to you? Yeah. Yeah, that's it. Hey, kids! What are you doing in here? Amscray, will ya?"

"That's better. Now, where were we? Ah, yes, talking about how lucky you are - or at least how lucky you're gonna be. [waggling eyebrows] Aww yeaaah. This sea I'm lying in is the ocean of my love, and it's all for you, girl, it's all for you. [wink wink]

"What's a matter, doll? Still not convinced? How 'bout if I do some leg lifts?"

"My sticker may say 'yellow', pudd'n, but this here treat is pure chocolate, if you know what I'm sayin'."

I don't know about you, Aimee T., Lisa C., J.B., and Becky B., but I am definitely in the mood - for cake.

Cake Wrecks Gets Its Own TV Show!

Ok, so maybe not. But, as alert Wreckporter Margaret S. points out, whoever scripted this vlog promoting the new CBC show Being Erica is obviously a not-so-closeted Wrecks fan. Heck, the video is even titled "Cake Wreck":

Hey, you think this was the inspiration? Either way, I think Cake Wrecks transitions well onto the small screen, don't you? In fact, how's this for an idea: a reality/candid camera show where a bakery deliberately messes up orders in the most ridiculous ways possible. I'm telling you, it'd be a comic GOLDMINE. Just throw in some smiley clueless cashiers, a sadistic ex-military shop manager, a guy who only speaks in pig Latin, and a dirty-minded grandma, and you've got yourself the Next Big Thing. Srsly. I'm accepting offers now, networks...
