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. 3  

  Of course, the irony of Phil's phobia was never completely lost on him.

"The inspector listened to the woman's tale with suspicion. Sure, the dame SEEMED to be telling the truth about her husband's death, but he still suspected fowl play."

 

Thanks to Erin W., Lisa H., & Kimberly P. for allowing my inner Gary Larson to come out and play. 

P.S. It's been a few years since I've done these, but here's what I consider Volume 1 and Volume 2.

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 - once again - for allowing me to be raised on The Far Side.
