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? ;)

Bakers Make Passes At Dinos With Glasses

Ever wonder what's going on back there in the murky recesses behind the bakery counter?


How 'bout now?


I mean, do you suppose bakers sit around taking bets on who can write the weirdest thing on the stock cakes?

(For the neighbor who won't pick up her dog's poop in your yard? But then, why would you reward that?)


I'm pretty sure bakers are also having competitions to see how much they can get away with before a customer notices and/or complains:

Baker: "And I did it all... with THE SAME PIPING TIP."

Groupie bakers: "OoooOOOOoooooh!"


Then again, maybe some bakers just don't like us.

"Look, you asked for a space cake, I made you a space cake. See the stars? And the planet?

"What, that thing there? That's, uh, a space log. Or an asteroid. Yeah. An assteroid. BAHAHAHAHAAAA! That'll be $36.99 please. Then get out."


And finally, for this one they asked for a dinosaur with glasses.

So the baker drew a dinosaur... with glasses:

Just not together.

Which is a whole NEW level of wrecking that, frankly, makes me thrilled to be alive right now.

Baby Bears All

Yesterday I offered to buy John some nipple pasties, but before you judge, it wasn't for anything "weird." It was just to cover his nipples. 

You know, when he goes running. Because they hurt. His nipples, I mean. When he runs. I like talking. In short, choppy sentences. Like this.

Which just goes to show, well, everything except the nipples. But also that you should never make snap judgements on anything.

Take this cake, for example:


 At first glance, it's just a pink bear with a little black nose being shunned by three invisible, barefoot ghosts.

BUT, look closer, and you soon realize ...


Which explains why the ghosts are shunning him, if you think about it. After all, eating babies is never something you want to encourage - is it, bakers?

Of course, after a fifth or sixth glance you might start to think that isn't a bear at all, but rather a knitted pink snow suit with an unfortunate child stuck inside...being shunned by three invisible ghosts. Which makes SO much more sense for a baby shower. o.0

Right, I take it back: in this case, a snap judgement really IS the best option. It's a bear. And I like men who wear pasties. Because I'm a weirdo. A fun, fun weirdo.



Thanks to Joy O. for being weird with me. But not in a weird way.
