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? ;)

Santa Shockers

What, the angry Santas on Monday didn't scare your kids straight? Ok, new game plan: we'll show them how disappointed the big guy is when they shove Crayons up little Austin's nose.

"They did what?!?"

That's right, children: kids who misbehave turn Santa's smile upside down.

Kind of like Wreckerators.
(Although Wreckerators do it more literally.)

In fact, boys and girls, your naughty antics could cause dear Old Saint Nick's mascara to run:

And do you really want to be responsible for that? Huh? Do you?

Here's another reaction you don't want from Santa come gift-giving time:

And you thought no one knew about the hamster incident.

So to sum up, remember, kids: Santa works on the reward system. Minor offenses = mild dismay:

Whereas major offenses, on the other hand...

[wincing] Oooh, not good.

Yes, Santa's cadaverous pallor betrays an aura of foreboding:

you are SO not getting another flame thrower this year.

Careful now, Perry, Lacey M., Ray D., Heather I., Tara B., & Erica L.; I hear wallpaper is flammable. Not that I would know, of course; that's just what I hear.

Merry Misfits

Unfortunately, these guys tend to get passed over come pageant time.

First there's Ginger, the deranged, dandruff-riddled cookie:

Sure she's a bit flaky, but be careful; Ginger snaps.

Then there's Harry, the five o'clock shadow elf:

As you can see, Harry likes to make a pig of himself.

Poopsie & Flopsie always know how to bring the holiday cheer:

Yep. Once they leave, everyone is MUCH more cheerful.

Humpty here likes to talk with his hands:

I would translate, but there are children present.

Then there's Tiny:

I tried to warn Tiny about cutting in front of that shaman, but would he listen? Noooo.

[singing] But do you recaaall...

The most famous misfit of all?

Yes, it's...

Poo-Dolph, the Bulldozed, Slain Deer!

Jessica S.,
Kim C., Erin F., Mike Y., & Anony M., I totally need Poo-Dolph on a t-shirt.
