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? ;)

By Show of Hands, Who Thinks We Should Call Child Protective Services?


It's bad enough that this cake seems to be using "full belly" as some kind of euphemism. Add in the picture of the scruffy-looking guy with his arms around a couple of kids, and surrounded by other children in various states of frolicking - all while in a secluded forest, I might add - and you've got some seriously disturbing cake imagery going on.

Considering the degree of wrongness already reached by those two issues, I almost feel petty in pointing out that there's no "a" before "dream".

Just call me petty, I guess.

Dana S., maybe we should look up that number...

You Too Can Prevent Random Quotation Marking

Don’t let this happen to someone you love. Think of poor "Anber", who will always wonder whether or not she’ll be missed. Get educated about the proper use of quotation marks, so that, together, we can make cakes like these a thing of the past.

And for more fantastic quotation mark snafoos, check out the "Blog" of "Unnecessary" Quotation Marks. Good stuff.

Thanks to Carrie Z. for sending this in!
