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? ;)

A Disaster of Biblical Proportions

And I thought dogs and cats living together was bad. Man.

Monika D., I think we're gonna need a bigger umbrella. Oh, and "Tanks."

NOTE: I'm trying something new: multiple postings a day! So if the morning post seems short, like this one, that's your cue that more Wreckage will be published later that day. We'll still have our longer marathon-style posts, of course; I just figured I'd try shaking things up a bit. Hope you like it. (And if you don't like it, hope you don't comment all troll-like.)
