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? ;)

Christmas Creep-Off

It's a Christmas Creep-Off!

Hit us with your best shots, bakers!

Oooh, now that's creepy.


But this is creepier. [shudder]



I mean, er, points for finding a way to make a candy cane look like it's made from someone's collection of skin suits, bakers. That's... that's really something. [backs away slowly]


Hey, ever wonder what Richard Kind would look like with shaved eyebrows?

(This is Richard Kind.)



Yep, nailed it. So why am I terrified? How DO you do it, bakers?


Hey, ever had a reeeeally bad sunburn?

And then wanted to eat it?

Then this Christmas, YOU ARE IN LUCK.


K, I'm calling it: that's definitely the creepiest.


Thanks to Danica G., Patrick M., Robyn B., Sheri P., & Lindsay L. for the Christmas face-off. (Ew.)

I feel like bakers are trying to tell us something, you guys.


I'm just not sure WHAT.

Speak to me, Deadpan Penguin! What is it? What's wrong?


Is a festive volcano about to blow?


Are alien body-snatchers among us?




Maybe I'm reading too much into this next one, but I think it's saying:

(That's our #1 problem!)


Or maybe bakers are just messing with us. Maybe NOTHING's wrong, and they think we're a bunch of nincompoops.


Or maybe

But probably not.


Well, whatever bakers are trying to tell us this season...

May yours be volcano, body-snatchers, and plague free.


Thanks to Jason & Amy, Tovah, Julia S., Aaron R., Lauren W., Anony M., Dezy, Natasha C., Fran V., Jennifer C., & Marsha W. for the goodwill to wise guys.
