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? ;)

Last week someone in a Facebook group I belong to asked a question that made the rest of us sit up and take notice.

The question was, "Does my arm look like a turkey leg?"

And you guys, it totally did.

It turns out this is intentional; Rachel here is dressing up as Thanksgiving Dinner for an upcoming marathon. So the next time you need a pick-me-up, just think of Rachel, running around in public, dressed as a giant turkey dinner.


And the next time you see a turkey cake, remember this oh-so-seamless segue:


Does this look like a turkey leg?

'Cuz it's their "specialty."



How 'bout this one?


Ahh, but nothing beats this beauty:

'Tis the season... to run screaming from the bakery!


Rest assured Rachel will be way ahead of us... wearing shoes with pies on them:

Have I mentioned Rachel is my hero?


Thanks to Amanda G., Emily J., Amy O., Bucklebee, & Rachel, who I'm sure would never forgive me if I didn't include the most appropriate Joey gif of all:

You're welcome.

The Post-Halloween Blues (And Drippy Oranges)

'Twas the week after Halloween,
(Such a sad tale to tell),
Of all the spooptacular cakes
That somehow failed to sell.


Dried up pumpkin donuts,


Poltergeists calling, "Bo bo"


Plus all manner of K-K-Kupcakes

...a definite "No-No."


Runny candy corn noses,


And all things smeary and old,


Is it really a wonder
That this one never sold?



So farewell, poop-kin river,


Farewell, slime-haired wrecks!

And brace yourselves, minions;
Thanksgiving is next.


Thanks to Elizabeth M., Attia S., Kat L., Andrea M., Janet P., Jodee R., Amy W., Chris V., & Amy J. for the spoopy send-off.
