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? ;)

Ok, football "fans," get ready to cheer on your favorite team!

All together now!




(Don't forget the air quotes.)

We Here 50 Go Steelers!!

GO PACK...uh...THING!!


Ok, confession time: I don't really care who wins this weekend. Heck, I had to google "Superbowl" just to figure out which teams were playing.

Fortunately, at least one bakery out there knows we don't all care about football, and is trying to pander accordingly:



Fingers crossed these get served at a Superbowl party this weekend. :D

Thanks to wreckporters Kate D., Julia T., Diane T., Jessica W., Amanda C., Sara N., & Amanda S., who I'm sure will agree that what we really need is a Picard vs Kirk cake-off. And Batman vs Superman. Vizzini vs Humperdinck? Oh! And Sauron vs Voldemort! Bakers? You listening?


News Bites, 2/3/11

It's time again for today's top headlines, illustrated with cake!

Just 'cuz.

"Mexican Gangs Use Catapults to Hurl Pot Into U.S."

Wow. Talk about a throwback to the past!

Seriously, who even drinks tea in the U.S. anymore?

Not to mention this sounds awfully refined for gang members:

"Relent, ye cad, or next I shall hurl 'yon chafing dish!"

"Arizona Fugitive Planned Suicide By Bear"

Oh, please. What's he gonna do, snuggle me to death?


Ahaha... ha... ha... oh crap

Fortunately, the man abandoned his plan when he heard voices telling him bears prefer their humans free-range. (Oh, SNAP!)

"China Braces For Rampant Sexytime in Year of the Rabbit"

Step 1: Cut a hole in the egg.

Step 2:

"Hey, baby, you lookin' fiiine! Watchoo skiing so fast for, huh? Slow down, girl!"

"Enraged Customer Assaults Store Employee Over Lack of Sprinkles"

As a precaution for the future, area bakeries have since introduced the following design:

In related news, most area bakers are now completely out of sprinkles.

Thanks to Marissa, Jessica F., Jekka G., David C., Lalita, & Ryan B., who think that second bear has a real potty mouth. (And they're totally right.)
