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? ;)

Chick Chicky Boom

I don't know about you guys, but I just love scoping out all the chicks in bakeries these days.

At least, I think that's what this is. That, or a couple of apostrophes on a teeter totter.

Here's a perfectly smashing example:

Or maybe just "smashed." Heh. As you can see, the blue highlights give it "character."

Then there's the Cheater's Special:

Even using 80% plastic decor, the Wreckerator still managed to make Chickadee look like she's sitting on a gloomy gift-wrapped raincloud. Aw, Eeyore would be proud.

Say what you will about this next one; I think it's hilarious:

You do have to wonder if those chicken feet are made of solid icing, though. [head tilt] I mean, how do you get that much icing to stand up like that? And more importantly, do you think people who eat real chicken feet would find this gross? (Amy, m'dear? Care to weigh in?)

This last one is yellow and orange and was displayed next to some sketchy looking "bunnies", so you know what that means...

It's Dr. Bok Bok Bokaw, the mutant chicken head sent from the future to enslave us all!!

Fortunately, despite the fact that her bio-dome keeps her almost perfectly preserved, Dr. Bokaw's minions are nothing to crow about. Some of them can't read her chicken scratch, others felt so hen-pecked that they flew the coop, and the rest are all..well...[leaning in to whisper in your ear] chickens.

Gail D., Mandy P., Anne B., Erika N., & Lysa, egg-cellent work.


Have a Ball!

It's your birthday! Have a ball!

No, seriously. Have a ball:

"Look at all the extra care the baker took in crafting this lovely...round...spherical...ball-like thing for your birthday! That random capitalization and uncrossed 't' really add to the post-modernistic feel, too, don't you think?

"Plus, the pink dots add [jazz hands] pizazz!"

Angie C, you spin me right 'round.
