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 Ghosts of Leeches Past:

"Howth it going, Thtan?"



"Then I turned around, and BAM. There it was! Right here on the wall! I'm telling you, man, I think this crypt is haunted."



"'Quit being silly,' she said.

"'Your face will get stuck that way,' she said. 

"Well, look at me now, Ma!"
