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? ;)

The Far Side of Cake, Vol. 12

As the bees closed in, Pooh and Tigger realized they'd made a horrible mistake.



"'Put a few leaves on it,' she said. 'It looks too plain,' she said. 'You've got to learn to fill the space,' she said! Well FINE."



Maurice was famous for being the only butterfly who could successfully do "the worm."

Which was handy, since he couldn't fly for sh*t.



There was a long, uncomfortable silence.

The Hello Kitties had, at last, run out of hellos.



When Ghosts Wish Each Other Happy Birthday:



Elmo looked around. Had anyone seen?
But no, the road was deserted.
Plus he was late for Abby's party, and had no time for paperwork or prying questions.

Whistling cheerfully, Elmo turned the wheel and drove on into the night.

The Far Side of the Bakery

During the traditional "Ongo Longo" dance, the natives express thanks for the year's crops, the tribe's health, and for the glandular defect running rampant in the island's pigs.


The scientists found that results were mixed. Some mice seemed to enjoy the whistling spleen, while others were petrified beyond all bowel control.


As the minutes ticked by, Elmo realized with dawning horror that this was one staring contest he might not win.


Batman would later have cause to regret his rather insensitive "manual control" quip.


Wall-E considered. On the one hand, he adored Eve and wanted to make her happy. But on the other, he was surrounded by mounds of crap.


Thanks to Susan S., Beth M., Kimmi D., Bianca S., & Karen P. for the wrecks, and to Gary Larson for allowing me to be raised on The Far Side.
