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? ;)

What's the Big Deal?


OMG, it's Black Friday! And you know what that means, right?!?



Well, yes. But more importantly - leftovers that are ON SALE!!!!!!

That's right, today everything is on sale! EVERYTHING MUST GO!! So let no dilly-dallying grandma with a slow sprint and a bum hip get between you and the DEAL OF A LIFETIME.


Of course, *I* finished my shopping weeks ago by shopping online. I got some great deals, too! Like this Nintendo Wii:


I'm sure that dent will buff right out.


Yep, the refurbished AS-IS models are always on clearance:


They even threw in the deluxe 3-inch controller cables for free!


I also saved a ton of money by shopping directly from vendors on the street:


Who knew "Louise Vitton" could be so affordable?


I even found a cozy little warehouse down by the docks just brimming with name brand electronics:


I scored this limited edition "2009" iPod for a song. So portable!



And I got something just for me: a brand new smart phone!


Once I erase all the demo information on this guy "Jeff," I'll be good to go!



Of course, if you're not as prepared as I am, you could brave the crowds and head out for some full-contact shopping today. But remember: stay respectful and relaxed! After all, there are enough deals to go 'round for everyo...

Move it, lady! I saw that Dora doll first!!



I'm serious, woman. Hand over "Birthday BBQ Dora" or soy es punches en la grande gorditas!




Or, you could visit any book retailer's website and order a bunch of Cake Wrecks hardcover, 75%-new-content gift books and 2011 calendars - available in two convenient sizes - and finish all your shopping in one fell swoop. Voila! Shopping done.

Let's Hear It For The Bird

Woohoo! It's Thanksgiving! And in honor of the occasion, our trusty turkey cakes have prepared a little message for us:

Well. That's...depressing.

(Oh, and btw, parents, making little screaming sounds when you cut the head off may seem hilarious now, but those therapy bills later are a total buzzkill.)

Let's see if we can't find some more chipper birds, shall we?


Let's see if we can't find some more chipper birds, shall we?

The sign says, "Eat beef."

Beyond that, I have no answers.

Take away the giant piece of plastic, and this next one is just a big hand... us the bird.

[Ba-dum bump!]

But seriously, are there no cheerful turkey cakes in here?

"I am far too consternated by my Groucho eyebrows and gaping body cavern to be cheerful."

"Yeah, I'm feeling pretty down in the dumps, too."

"I am terrified beyond the capacity for rational thought."

"And I have no head."

[sing-song] "But I do-ooo!"

You doo-doo indeed, mon.
