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? ;)

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...

A Real Stretch

A "professionally made" giraffe cake:


I kid you not.

Kelly B. paid a whopping $4 for this, folks, JUST so she could share it with all of you. Now that's loyalty.

I find it fascinating that someone can know how to spell "giraffe" without having any idea what one looks like, don't you?
