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? ;)

Disenchantment Under the Sea

I'm telling you, things just haven't been the same here since Ariel opted for a water delivery!

 

♫ A sea birth ain't always keener

Sometimes it's a big mistake.

 

There's stuff you just can't unsee there

It even upset the hake.

 

Just look at the fish around you

She freaked 'em out by the score!

 

The squid even lost an eye now -

"Don't want it anymore."

 

Under the sea!

[Oh my, Dory!]

What did we see?

[Under the sea!]

 

Childbirth ain't better,

just 'cause it's wetter

Take it from me!

Up on the shore it works OK.
Just let the doctors earn their pay!

'Cause if we're voting

 "It was revolting!"


Under the sea! ♫


[plop!]

 

Thanks to Carolann, Elizabeth G., Tiffany G., Nicole & Koren S., Angela G., Amy R., Trish L., Pon T., Chris, and James N., for not watering down their labors of love. (And, yes, the octopus is very well done... which is probably why it's creeping me out so much.)

The Top 12 Cakes To Bring To Your Family Reunion

The Top 12 Cakes to Bring To Your Family Reunion:

(Assuming your family has an excellent sense of humor.)

(Or you just don't like them.)

With this many grammar errors, you can always blame it on your younger cousins.

 

Make sure you insist everyone sing to him, too.

 

Works best if your last name is Trumpet. Or if you have a bunch of sentient squabbling horns around.

(No, I don't know the back story. Feel free to imagine your own.)

 

And this one works best if you there are either a bunch of teenage girls in your family, or none at all.

 

Just like there's no place like the back seat for carrying home an ROUS and a giant ... log?

("Anybody want a peanut?")

I *think* this was supposed to say "Lordy Lordy, look who's forty." I like the vaguely ominous portent-of-death vibe, though. And, hey, conversation starter!


Because a little honesty can go a long way... towards getting everyone to leave early so you can go back to playing LEGO: Harry Potter.

 

Mom always said to be positive. Or possibly "possitive."

 

Serve with copious amounts of alcohol. Then:

... set this one out while no one's looking, sit back, and watch the accusations fly.

 

This is another one I don't have a back story on, but I like to imagine it was ordered by that Debbie Downer relative who's always going on about "kids these days" and how "we'll all belong to China in a few more years - just you watch."

Also, yes, that relative might be me. WHAT.

 

And finally:

SO CLOSE to "family ruin," and yet ... so far. Drat. 

WAY TO GET MY HOPES UP, BAKERS.

 

Hey Shelly G., Krissy M., Amy S., Lisa C., Judi D., Laura B., Lisa V., Nicole S., Susan S., MJ, Vanessa S., & Laura S., I think I speak for us all when I say, "what's that supposed to mean??"
