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? ;)

Drem Big, Gjrads!

I think the reason I love graduation wreckage so much is all that rich, fortified irony.

C'mon. It doesn't get a whole lot better than this.

As we all know, it's usually the "congratulations" that gets wrecked. Still, there are plenty of other options if a Wreckerator wants to mix it up a little:

In a class all its own.

Uh-oh. Looks like someone forgot to bring their "A" game.

Here's one for a competition between rival labeling companies:

[dramatic announcer voice] "Live! From Hollywood! It's Class off, two thousand ten!'"


One thing you've really got to hand to home-schooling:

The grad ceremonies are quick. I bet they're always first in line at Olive Garden.

And to really go the extra mile, some Wreckerators will throw in a fuzzy green image of someone else's graduation photo:

Yep, this was sitting out for sale with all the other "generic" graduation cakes. Putting aside the "Gjraduates" issue, it really sends a nice message, don't you think?

"Here's your cake. We thought this guy kind of looked like you."

"But...I'm Asian."

"Yes, well..."

"And a girl."

"He has your smile."

Something Here Doesn't Add Up

We all know Wreckerators have trouble with the English and the spelling and whatnot.

(I don't know why they have trouble with the English, but they do.)

Well, turns out they aren't so great with numbers, either.

See? I tried to tell you cupcake cakes (patooie!) are all backwards.

"You're celebrating your 75th birthday? Meh, here's a quarter. Call someone who cares fractionally more than me."

(Oooh, math puns are FUN!!)

There's an unwritten rule in Wreckerating: every number ends in "th." Yes, every number.




The irony here is that's the "fixed" version.

Oh, and speaking of irony...

The kid on the right totally knows. He's just being polite.

Sarah J., Annette H., Dao, Janie, Jessica B., & Mike V., you're all number 1th to me.
