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? ;)

Getting To Know You...

It's Getting To Know Your Customers Day!

So, bakers, I thought I'd introduce you to a few from the CW audience:







That little boy's face = me when I see a Whoopie Pie.


(That's the bride in green.)


Oh, and the next time you decide to cover a cake with black icing, bakers, please:



It's not all bad, though. In fact, Becky's 6-year-old daughter just found the cake she wants for her next birthday, and it's totally do-able.


From the Cake Wrecks book, no less!

Becky, you're clearly raising this kid right. Kudos.

And bakers, don't screw this one up. Or if you do, please remind Becky to send me a picture. :D


Thanks to Dawn S., Larissa S., Susan D., Jan M., Carol Ann, Brianna A., Christiana M., Amanda H., Kim C., & Becky S. for seeing "Dead People."


And now,

Cannot. Handle. Teh cute.

Cake Takes

I know this will come as a shock, but I see a lot of cake photos. Sometimes these photos also have people in them, reacting to their cake. Hilariously. Like so:

 "Gee, Mom. You shouldn't have."


Personally, I like a cake with enough flotsam to hide a small child:

 "Clarissa? Clarissa! Where are you?"


And my personal favorite:

 Because sometimes a hamburger cake is the BEST DAMN THING YOU'VE EVER SEEN.


Thanks to Celeste R., Camille S., & Juliana B. for expressing themselves. Oh, and if you have a funny cake take to share - regardless if the cake is good, bad, or homemade - send it to me so I can share with the rest of the class, won't you?
