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? ;)

Armed To The Tea

Have you ever wandered through a bakery and thought, "Man, I could really go for a cake shaped like an arm holding a cup of hair right now"?

Well if so, then YOU are a very disturbed individual. Seriously. Maybe you should talk to someone.

But also, you're in luck!

Now, I know what you're thinking, and I completely agree. TOTALLY. But where would we even get a robot monkey at this hour? 

You may also be wondering where the hair is.

There it is!

("I see...THE GRIM. And he's shedding like crazy.")

I'd say it looks like someone plucked out their mustache, but only because there are children present and I wouldn't want this to get too...public. (HI, KIDS.) I'd also go out on a limb and say this baker has single-handedly created the most disarming assault on the funny bone yet - but only because puns make me snort-giggle.

But in case that's not enough hair for you, fear not; there's more!


Er, I about a hairy situation that must have taken a lot of elbow grease! Haha!

K, I think that's all I've got. SO, let the Professor Trelawney jokes...begin.


Thanks to Julia for reminding us of our universal right to bare arms. (Ok, that's the last one. Promise.)

Cupcake Day's Race To The Bottom

After you see enough cake wrecks, you can start to get the impression that individual cupcakes are a safe bet.


(I think some of those might be words. WHAT.)



The ghosts of cupcakes past! And a random pile of poo!


And behold!

The song "Run, Run, Rudolph" just got real, y'all.


Keep beholding!

I don't know what these are, but, ew.


And I DO know what these are:

...but, ew.

(Think they're cigarette flavored? [hurk!])

But all of that pales in comparison to the cupcakes that turn every frown completely around - so it's still a frown:

The cupcakes that make accidental nipples seem downright family friendly:


The cupcakes, my friends... that I hear taste like a$$:


This brings to mind a song, dear minions. May I?

All together, now!
