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? ;)

Ow.

I'm pretty sure I just burst a blood vessel in my right eye, looking at this.

[squinting] From what I can see, this appears to be a pimp-mobile on a suicide run through a radioactive river of blood - only it's a radioactive river of blood with jaunty blue outlining.

I love the extra cupcake stuck on the side, too: what's that supposed to be? A pit stop?

If you want to give yourself a migraine, try reading what it says in front of the car. Don't see any writing? Look closer. No, closer. Let's see...I think it says...

Dang it!

There went the other eye.

Jen E., I think you owe me a bottle of Visine.

Freud Would Have a Field Day

Let's take a moment to really absorb the full impact of this wedding "cake". Drink it all in: the stacked strawberries, the bananas, the unfortunately positioned apricots ON the bananas, the rockin' plaid suit in the background...

Don't ask me for details; I have none. I will say, however, that if wedding cakes are meant to be symbolic, this couple is really looking forward to the wedding night. C'mon: banana towers? With apricot rings on the tips? At the epicenter of some kind of icing/oat/fruit explosion? (Ahh, but were they wild oats? Oh!)

"Sure, no, of course we believe you guys when you say you just wanted a 'healthy alternative' to traditional cake. And that 10 minutes you spent feeding each other bananas in front of everyone? Sure, that was kind of awkward, and the kids are asking a lot of questions now, but we know it was just 'cuz you both really like bananas. A lot."

Say, do you suppose this was the bride's going-away cake?
