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? ;)

Like You Need Any: More Weird Reasons To Buy Cake

Need more excuses to eat cake, minions? Then I'VE GOT YA COVERED.

Why not celebrate:

The Birth of Man

A little esoteric perhaps, but if anyone asks, just say you're being sarcastic.


A Really Nice Meadow:

For those out standing in their fields.


Calling Dibs On The Front Passenger's Seat:


A Good Steak?

At least, I assume that's what this diagram is.
(Why celebrate steak with cake? Because cake is better than steak, duh.)


How Many Cakes You've Had:

So meta. I love it.

Anyone else wondering what your number would be? 'Cuz if we're counting slices from separate cakes, then the CW Book Tours alone mean I've got most of you beat. [Wistfully remembers the days when I got a slice of cake every night after each show.] Ahhh. Good times.


Hang on, I'm not sure this is something to be celebrated, but cake DOES help:

It better be chocolate.


In fact, this next one is a MUCH better occasion for cake, am I right, ladies?

The Winter Blues... And Reds?

I know most of you are tired of winter, bakers, but did you HAVE to decapitate poor Frosty?

That's just cold.

And the blood trail is a bit much.


Here, you know what you need? A warm hug.

Or a terror-sparked run for your life.
...which can also warm you up.


Tell you what, let's brainstorm all the GREAT things about winter! Like, uh... huh. Let's see.

Oh! Well, there's the, you know, thing there.

[long pause]

On second thought, let's just brainstorm all the BAD things about summer.

Like crappy butterflies:



And streaking watermelons:

(You're disappointed this isn't a naked watermelon, I know. BUT ISN'T IT?)


And, of course, Mariachi Band Mickey Mouse:

Say what you will about his music, but this guy will really stick his neck out for you.

Granted, Mariachi Band Mickey doesn't really have anything to do with summer OR winter, but in my defense, it's 65 degrees in here and I am REALLY COLD.

I bet a hot whoopie pie would taste good right now. We should find out. Who's with me?

Thanks to Kathleen F., Jessica A., Stacie B., Jennifer T., & Lydia H., who I'm sure will understand when I say this is all I could think of with that Mickey cake:
