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? ;)

The Cake Wrecks Guide To Facebook Unfriending

Warning: Adult subject matter. Kinda. Not really.

 

It's Unfriend Day over on Facebook, a day to sit down, reflect, and finally ask ourselves, "Who the heck is that guy, and why am I friends with him?"

Now, I can't tell you EXACTLY who to unfriend, because I don't know the name of the person who decided stretch leggings are not "business appropriate attire." Still, I can offer you a few general guidelines.

 

The Over-Sharer

We also don't need to see that weird growth thing on your elbow, Tom.

 

The Drunk Serial Poster

Nothing says "Mistakes were made last night" quite like a 4AM photo dump of blurry faces, fire hydrants, and the bait-and-tackle aisle at Wal-Mart.

 

The Vague-Booker

It's mysterious and dramatic and they can't tell you ANYTHING until you give them lots and lots of attention.

 

The Racist

Sadly I have even more accurate cakes for this, but I'm not posting them.
You're welcome.

 

That Person Who Thinks Every Onion Headline is Real

[Photo deleted because we finally checked Snopes, and it was fake.]

 

The Humble Brag

(Via Humblebrag, because I actually tried, but still couldn't make this stuff up.)

 

The Always-Irrationally-Angry

Often related to All-Caps-McRanty and Extreme-Politics-R-Us

 

The Creepy Stalker

Granted, we all do a little innocent FB stalking from time to time, but there are sometimes-subtle clues that it may have gone too far.

This is one of them.

 

And to end on a positive note, definitely keep the friends who post Cake Wrecks.

That's the sign of excellent moral character, right there.

You'll Never Guess What These Were Supposed To Be...

WARNING: Gratuitous, often incomprehensible wang innuendo ahead.

 

No, no. GUESS:

It's NOT a uterus. Or a ruptured trouser weasel. Scout's honor.

 

Give up?

It's an exploding thermometer. Like this:

Yep. THAR SHE BLOWS.

 

This is ALSO not a one-eyed zipper splitter (with accompanying cherry pit):

Nope, it's a kite.

 

Remember, my friends, no man is an island.

But sometimes his inflatable leg nose is.

 

We sure see a lot of "balloons" that look more like doggy-paddlin' miracle grow:

(Doggy-paddlin' to freedom.)

 

...but sometimes the balloons get a bit more... nutty.

Great gobs of pendulous plum pillows!

Whoever did this should be sacked.

 

Hey, speaking of balls:

Never make Dad the butt of his own cookie cake.

 

And finally, a self-rising lap baguette the baker was so proud of, she had to put a ribbon on it:

The three "fun-slinger" salute was also a nice touch.

(Although once you see it, the green "slung" bits get pretty dang disturbing.)

 

Thanks to the appropriately named Phyllis B., Alicia W., Christina M., Jessica N., Kristine C., Lauren B., Sheree K., & Charlie for just being happy to see these wrecks, and not having any butterfly cakes in their pockets.
