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? ;)

Batter UP!

Frankly, Carianne, I don't think I can top the genius of the pun that is 'batter up', so I'll just quit while I'm ahead.

PS: Take that, Failblog.

All Your Base Are Be Wrong To Us

I've had a few requests for more sports-related cakes, since I think there was a World Series or something going on at some point in the recent past. (My perception is uncanny, I know. Let's just say my "sporty sense" was tingling.)

So let's see...that's baseball, right? Okey doke. [virtually rifling through photos] Uhhh. Ah! Here we go:

Mmm, this reminds me of that most fragrant of bakery delicacies: the moldy kitchen sponge. And that Christmas tinsel? Flossing WIN.

What's wrong with this baseball diamond? Ah, the answer is in the question, grasshoppah. [nodding sagely] The in the question.

In fact, most of the "diamonds" on these Wrecks are anything but:

Although frankly, singling out the diamond issue here is a little like complaining there are no in-flight peanuts while the plane is going down.

Now, I never thought I would say this, but...Thank goodness for plastic flotsam!

How else would we know this is an Elmo/baseball kite?

And lastly, this Wreckerator gives us a "rosy outlook" on the sport:

Wow. This may be the first time I've ever hoped someone was colorblind. You know, for his/her own sake.

Natalee S., Mary G., Dawn B., Hannah, & Ashley P., those "baseballs" are terrifying. Hold me?

NOTE: No, you're not losing your mind; two of these Wrecks have been posted before. Oopsie. I was, uh, testing your memory. Yeah. That's it.
(On the other hand, perhaps you are losing your mind, and only think you're reading this right now.
Have you considered that? Hmmm?)
