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? ;)

Circumstantial Evidence

 The World's Most Awesomely (In)Appropriate Cake For A Bris:

 

"It's a boy!"

 

 (And yes, this really WAS the cake for a bris. Would I lie to you?)

 

(Don't answer that.)

 

 

Oddly enough, there was also a post-ceremony cake on hand:

Haha! Just kidding. 

 

(The truth? You can't HANDLE the...handle.)

And now, Bonus (In)Appropriateness!

Who wants the first slice?!

 

 

ACTUAL CONVERSATION I HAD WITH JOHN WHILE WRITING THIS POST:

Me: "Hey, do you know what a 'bris' is?" 

John: [pause] "Um...is it a girl thing?"

Me: "Nooo... It's pretty much the exact opposite of a girl thing."

John: "Oh. Is it a slice of meat?"

Me: "Wow. SO CLOSE."
 

Thanks to wreckporters Melissa, Laura O., & Ellie P. Now, hot dogs for everyone!

 

Update:  It looks like this post has recently attracted the attention of some anti-circumcision groups, so we're going to go ahead and turn the comments off. For the record, we don't think circumcision is funny - just like we don't think divorce, death, or breast cancer is funny - but that doesn't stop us from poking fun at a good wreck. As always, we certainly meant no offense to anyone, and if this post has caused any harm or bruised feelings, then we are truly sorry.

Castle Came-A-Lot

Making a castle cake?

Then here's a tip (or seven):

Photo removed at the baker's request.  Please enjoy this lovely picture of Epcot.

Always use protection.

As you can see, King Richard erected a castle here so safe it's absolutely guaranteed that nothing comes in OR out, no matter how hard the wind blows.

 

ACTUAL CONVERSATION I JUST HAD WITH JOHN:

John: "Uh, Jen, it was King Arthur, not King Richard."

Me: [deadpan stare]

John: "Oh! Ahahahaa! Ok, I like where your head's at."

Me: "Tell it to King Richard, dude."

 

A seven turret salute to Sarah for finding a cake where the rubber meets the moat.
