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? ;)

12 Thanksgiving Cakes To Make You EXTRA Thankful

John and I actually had our Thanksgiving dinner with family on Monday, and we had ham instead of turkey, but it was still totally Thanksgiving dinner because we used cloth napkins and the phrases "What's that supposed to mean?" and "No, YOU'RE wrong!" were used. YAY HOLIDAYS.

If that doesn't already make you feel more thankful, then here are twelve wrecks to remind you just how blessed you are to have a phone with Internet access so you can look at goofy cake pictures while your family argues politics. (Yeah, I know you're out there. Welcome!)

 

"Bad news, sir: the tiny phalluses have us surrounded. 

"Also, you're on fire."

 

It's the original Thanksgiving streaker!

(But what in the name of Stovetop is that "stuffing" made of?)

 

 

This bird is here to PUMP... *clap!* ...YOU UP!

"HURRRG! Watch me flex, ya!"

 

And this:

...is an EX-turkey.

(I can't help it; those stiff little legs crack me up every. single. time. And then I start pining for the fjords...)

 

Aw, don't cry, little fella! I'm sure all turkey cakes have visible bowels.

Or at least the ones around here, anyway.

 

This cake doesn't need commentary; it needs a sound effect.

Something like, "BLTTHHHHPPPPPPPPPP. THPP."

 

 

As a proud geek girl, I usually use the word "shiny" as a compliment.

Not this time. 

Also, that "cake" is butted up against real raw potatoes. You know how I know they're real potatoes? Because they're the only thing on that platter that looks like the thing they're supposed to be.

 

A lot of people have complained about Christmas decorations creeping in alongside all the Thanksgiving ones this year, but I didn't think it was so bad 'til I saw this:

YOU'RE NOT FOOLING ANYONE, GINGERBREAD MAN.

 

Now for a quick etiquette lesson:

This is why you should always chew with your mouth closed.

And also why you should never confuse your TP with TNT. (Ouch.)

 

Which reminds me: anyone else think this turkey is mooning us?

Or is that too much of a stretch?

(HEYO!)

 

So in conclusion, allow me and the Ghost of Turkeys Past here to wish you a very Happy...

..."Itanksgiving."

 

Or, as most of us know it:

"Gooble Gooble Day." 

 

Thanks to Kimberly H.,  Craig, Katrina O., Sam K., David G., Michael H., Sara G., Ardin A., Susan F., Deborah B., Travis S., & Carolyn H. for the Thanksgiving thankfullness.

If Cake Croutons Become A Thing, I WANT CREDIT

It's the day before Thanksgiving here in America, my friends, but ALL of us could stand to be more thankful for the little things in life.

Like turkeys giving birth to pilgrim hats:

 

And old Halloween flotsam:

 

For floating scarecrow heads:

 

Desperate store managers trying to get rid of old stock:

 

And spurting turkey cannons:

 

For turkeys with exploding butts:

("My bad.")

 

And sad pilgrim heads:

 

For goobles:

 

And gobles:

 

And all those many, many Thanks Given:

Not to mention all the bakers who actually think it's spelled that way.

 

For giant salads with cake croutons:

(I dunno. But I like it.)

 

And for knowing that, while you can't polish a turd, you CAN stick a paper tail in it and call it a turd-key:

 

But most of all, lets be thankful for our friends, our family, and for this guy:

Because, c'mon, look at him.

LOOK AT HIM.

Hope you have a great Thanksgiving, minions! Maybe have the pie.

 

Also giving thanks for Shannon R., Marah S., Lucretia J., Chris H., Sabrina K., Lee V., Sarah S., Juanita G., Pamela T., Christopher F., James L., Tanya D., & Diane G. Gooble 'til ya drooble, guys.
