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? ;)

This Post is Brought to you by the Number 809

Why 809? Because that's the number of votes Cake Wrecks received over at the Blogger's Choice Awards. That's right, Wrecks fans, WE WON!!


Not only that, but your voting made CW win by a landslide: 300 votes more than second place! Of the 37 or so categories on BCA, I think I only saw 3 other winning blogs with more votes than Wrecks: most winners had between 200 and 500 votes. Wow. So thank you - all 809 of you - for your completely spontaneous support: I am just floored by your response, and very grateful.

Now, about your evil henchmen duties...

Beware! It's the Shark-Attack-Cupcake-Mountain!

Er.

Hey, Guys, "cupcake-mountain?" Really? I mean, it's supposed to be the ocean, so wouldn't "waterfall" or something be better? Not that sharks could very well dismember people in a waterfall, of course.

What's that? No, I am NOT missing the point. I'm just saying that a certain level of realism might have aided the overall design...

Right, shutting up now.

Me: "Knock-knock."
Rose F.: "Who's there?"
Me: "Candy-gram."

UPDATE: It's true: this was not a pro-made cake. I made the exception because so many of you sent it in, and I thought it was funny. Not poorly-made, mind you; just funny!
