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? ;)

Twice Makes Nice

Remember, bakers, if at first you don't succeed, try, try again.

Perhaps I should rephrase that.

 

Um...

Oh! How about this:

If at first you don't succeed, do something different the second time.

Going in circles, we are.

 

See, generally you're going to want to erase your first attempt, and then try to improve things the second time.

Hey, way to put the "DUN DUN DUNNN" in redundant!

 

Don't worry, though; with a little practice and repetition, you too can tell people to go pee themselves.

Er...yeah!

Go, go, go!

It's Baaaa-aaaack

Yesterday I sensed a great celebration in the Force. As if a billion stay-at-home parents suddenly cried out, and then poured themselves a margarita.


Oh, is school back in session?

 Thaaaat explains it.

 

Plus, now I know why I've been seeing cakes with random office supplies thrown on them:


 

Oh! And what "TOSCHOL" is!

That black square with the red squiggle, however, remains a mystery.

 

Now, kids, I know it may not seem like it now, but going to school really is a good thing.

For your parents, I mean. Sucks to be you!! Haha!

Ahem.

I'm sorry.

What I meant was, education is an important, vital aspect of your development, and the places we go to receive our education should be treated with the proper respect.


Now, is it easy? Of course not! After all, these places will make you [shudder] "Back ---- To The Books (Study)":

You have no idea how much I'd like to scratch out "books" and write in "Future." Then I'd replace "study" with "McFly."

Oooh, cake graffiti! Why hasn't this been done before??

[NOTE: I here at Cake Wrecks do not endorse, condone, or solicit illegal cake defacing.]

[Unless you're paid to do it.]

[Glad we cleared that up.]

['Nother Note: I'd give you $5. Just sayin'.]

 

Anyway, if it helps, kids, know that adults go to school, too.

So, you know, you've got that to look forward to.

 

Look, bottom line:

Totally.

So run along and have fun, dears! I think today I'll sit around and play Mini Ninjas while eating Marshmallow fluff straight out of the jar. Degree-holding adult, right here! Stay in shool!
