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? ;)

Putting the "Ha!" in Halloween

You guys, it's Halloween! And you know what that means, right?

Yep: Time to get our hands on some cake.

Finger-licking bad.

 

Or I suppose we could sink our teeth into some...er...

[blinking]

...never mind.

 

Just keep your eyes off this pumpkin cake, if you please:

Thank you.

 

I'm having a hard time wrapping my brain around this design:

Ow.

Oh, I know! Maybe it's a window pane!

*gigglesnort*

Ahem.

 

I did wonder why Frank there had no nose, but then I realized:

That's why.

Yep, you could say it's as plain as the dong on his face.

 

Come to think of it, this bakery really should reevaluate their staff:

'Cuz that's one broomstick that should be swept under the rug.
You know, for being too hard to handle.
Not to mention stick-y.

 

And so, my friends, in conclusion:

Haa!

 

And...

EEN!!

 

Thanks to A.F., C.C., Linda L., Donna S., Patrick M., Dana, Jeremy C., & Kelsey N. for the tricky treats.

Sunday Sweets: Haunted Tour

Knock... Knock... Knock...

By Giggy's Cakes and Sweets

Oh, hello there. Do come in. You're just in time for some Halloween "entertainment." Just brush those cobwebs aside and make your way into this unnecessarily cold and dimly-lit foyer.

Tonight, you will join me on a tour through some of the creepiest, spookiest, and most haunting Sweets we've ever featured. Are you FRIGHTENED? {Evil snicker...} Excellent.


Follow me into the next room where I have a little treat waiting for you.

This was our last visitor:

By Becky S.

We thought he'd beheaded home by now.

 

Ahh, and please allow me to introduce my blushing bride:

By Debbie Does Cakes

If I can be frank, our marriage is a real scream.

 

Follow me into the laboratory where our scientists are tinkering with a few experiments...

We'll leave him be. It looks like he's got a lot on his mind.

 

Do be careful walking into this next room. You never know what might cross your path.

 

By Sandra (socake)

Oh, don't worry; she doesn't bite... hard.

 

Keep your eyes peeled while you're walking through the toy room. Someone might be in there clowning around...

By Mamma Jamma Cakes

Yes, his eyes and hair have a ghoulish glow, but that's only because he's so happy to have someone new to play with.

 

Did you notice our Jack O' Lantern?

By Dena's Sweetly Unique Cakes

I think there's candy inside. Why don't you reach your hand in to get some?

 

Or grab yourself an apple! I promise they're not poisoned.

By Mamma Jamma Cakes

Although they do have a bit of a bite.

 

Is that a shiver I detect? Then perhaps we should avoid the basement:

It tends to give people goosebumps*.

I'm sorry, is my little tour making your skin crawl?

By DeadBright

I could lighten things up with a few jokes. They'll have you in stitches, I promise.

 

Oh, and stay on your toes as we enter the old Victorian ballroom. You never know what spirits might still be dancing around in here.

Did you feel that?

I could have sworn I saw something in the corner there.

I must be imagining things.

Well, I'm afraid you must be leaving now. The missus and I are expecting more guests this evening. But don't forget our creepies and the crawlies, our spooks and scares, our evil demons and ghostly ghouls!!

After all, we want you to sleep well tonight.

LIKE THE DEAD, in fact.

Mwuaaah haaaa haaaa!

Ahahahahaaaa!!

BWAHAHAHAHAAA!!!

Oh, and don't miss the gift shop on your way out; we have rock candy and postcards for 50% off!

 

And one last thing:

By Rosebud Cakes

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
