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? ;)

A Fertile Imagination

Finally, a birthday cake that celebrates the real meaning of birthdays:

(Don't even try to tell me you don't see it.)

And that, boys and girls, is HOW A STAR IS BORN.




Thanks to Lindsay C. for the egg-cellent pregnant pause.

(Hey Lindsay, you think this cake would be hard to reproduce?)


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?!




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

John: [pause] " 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.
