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? ;)

E.T. is back...

and he is piiiiissed.


Now, I love pop-culture references from old 80's movies as much as the next girl, ok? Make a crack about R.O.U.S.'s or use the line, "Back off, man; I'm a scientist." and I will love you forever. That said, turning E.T. - whose popularity peaked 25 years ago - into a ticked-off looking mummy and then marketing him to the under-12 set might be a bit too obscure for today's youth. Heck, without the "phone home" reference, I doubt any adult would get it. So props to the decorator for trying to keep the dream alive, but maybe next time he or she should make it a little more obvious.

Josh W., don't you have a phone call to make?
