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? ;)

Autumn's Equal Knocks

Ahh, fall. The time of year that puts a little nip in the air - not to mention our bakeries!

:D

WHAT.

 

Fall just officially started yesterday, but bakers are already WAY ahead of us:

You can almost smell it, am I right?
The Autumn air, I mean.

 

Oh! And look!

A poopkin!

Ahh, how I've missed those.

 

Plus this business is happening:

 

And this:

 

And can't forget the Unicycling Femme Bots!

Love these.

 

But really, I think this design sums up the season best - which is probably why it's so popular:

 

 

Yep; lazy days and a HUGE pile of... [side eye]

...leaves.

 

Thanks to Mary V., Kate O., Fawn K., Kayte K., Jaimz D., Alicia, Barbara G., Sarah D., & Amy Jo, who can make like a tree, and poop all over innocent cakes. (But PLEASE DON'T.)

Merci!

Have you heard of the Croquembouche [CROCK-you-EAM-butchy]? It's a French thing.

Well, if not, here's what it's supposed to look like:

So kinda like old, cobweb-wrapped monkey bread. But in a yummy way.

 

Well, a certain anonymous person - who shall remain unnamed to protect her anonymity - found this gem at a wedding which she may or may not have anonymously attended:

I believe her exact words were, "it looks like some kind of primitive jungle cake being attacked by a swarm of lactating spider-wasps."

Mmmm, lactating spider-wasps...

Well, uh, Jane D. [wink wink], thanks for putting a new spin on these things.

 

Note: I think it's important to ask yourself a couple of questions before commenting here on Cake Wrecks:
Question: Did Jen and john really intend to give us the pronunciation of a word?
Answer: No.
Question: Are Jen and john complete and total idiots?
Answer: No.
Question: Do they...
Answer: No.
Question: Would they...
Answer: No.
Question: What about...
Answer: No.
That is all.
