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? ;)

They'd warned her it was a crap job, and they were right. Still, Rhonda might have managed, if it weren't for that rotten Yellow Ridgeback smirking at her every morning during cage clean-out.



Thanks to Mikey T., Mary Ellen K., & Emily H., who know that look all too well if they've ever owned a dog. (Right?)
