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? ;)

Ghosts with the Most

The most wreckiness, that is.

The label says "The 'Boo' Cake", but it looks more like a "boo-hoo" cake - that, or "when ghosts scream". I guess this is why ghosts shouldn't wear mascara, huh? (Get it? Ma-SCARE-a?)

Some say 'carpe diem' (seize the day) and others say 'carpe jugular' (seize the throat). I'm guessing these cupcakes are more the latter:

Huh - I've never seen ghosts with claws before.

The ghost on the left looks like a cheerleader with pom-poms. The ghost on the right looks...uh...[noting kids in the room] ....cheerful. Yeah. Like, giving you his full attention kind of cheerful.

These teeny-tiny "cupcake" creations are almost as bad as Cupcake Cakes. Not only do the bakeries leave the paper wrapper on the cupcake, but they also pile on enough icing to make even the most die-hard sugar addict develop a facial tic.

As for this particular Wreck, I have just three words: "albino squid mouth". And "ick". Ok, so maybe four words.

Beware! It's the Shark-Attack-Cupcake-Mountain!

Er.

Hey, Guys, "cupcake-mountain?" Really? I mean, it's supposed to be the ocean, so wouldn't "waterfall" or something be better? Not that sharks could very well dismember people in a waterfall, of course.

What's that? No, I am NOT missing the point. I'm just saying that a certain level of realism might have aided the overall design...

Right, shutting up now.

Me: "Knock-knock."
Rose F.: "Who's there?"
Me: "Candy-gram."

UPDATE: It's true: this was not a pro-made cake. I made the exception because so many of you sent it in, and I thought it was funny. Not poorly-made, mind you; just funny!
