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? ;)

A Real Stretch

A "professionally made" giraffe cake:


I kid you not.

Kelly B. paid a whopping $4 for this, folks, JUST so she could share it with all of you. Now that's loyalty.

I find it fascinating that someone can know how to spell "giraffe" without having any idea what one looks like, don't you?

Year of the Tongue?

Happy New Year, from a pig with the world's longest tongue:

Or I suppose it could be an ant-eater. Or a wild boar. Or an anthropomorphized vacuum cleaner.

Or, if you turn it THIS way, a Billy Goat wearing a balloon hat:

Heh, it's like an ink blot test. What do YOU see?*

Thanks and belated birthday greetings go to Amy C., who suffers from having a birthday between Christmas and New Years. Like many kids growing up with such a birth date, she never had a birthday cake of her very own. So last week, after years of waiting for someone else to buy her a cake, she decided to go out and just get it herself. [standing and applauding] Plus, she ALSO bought this cake - with no intention of eating it - solely to share with us here on Cake Wrecks. Now that's a Wreckporter.

Amy, you just keep wreckin' on with your bad self. And thanks for the reminder that life's too darn short to not buy your own birthday cake. Live it up this year, my friend, and enjoy that cake.

* You know, besides the obvious but not-so-creative pink elephant. ;)
