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? ;)

Here we have Admiral Blandy and his wife hosting one of the "raddest" parties this side of Hiroshima. After being served this devastatingly delicious treat, guests sipped Molotov cocktails and danced the night away to Ella Fitzgerald's "It's Too Darn Hot".

Shaun, you da bomb.

THIS is How You Show Hungry Who's Boss

Both Wreckporter Colee R. and I instantly recognized this "Go Team" Wreck:

It's Hungry from those Weight Watcher's commercials! You know, this guy?


Now, Weight Watcher's wants you to banish Hungry (who I must say is the most adorable junk-food-pusher since my hubby John) by joining some program of theirs. However, the decorator of the above CCC and I have an even better idea: eat cupcakes.

See, eating cupcakes is ALSO an effective way to banish Hungry. Right? Seriously, you can't argue with this kind of logic.

And in case this is the first you've seen of the adorable orange monster, here's one of his commercials airing approximately every 20 minutes 'round these parts:

Colee, is it wrong that this makes me hungry?
