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 Cake Wrecks Phenomenon

Think the wreckage only extends to sugary baked goods?

Think again.

My friends, meet "The Sprinkle Roll":


It's a California Roll...with sprinkles on it.

Yes, real, sugar sprinkles. Brian S., who found these at his local Sushi bar, tells me they taste about how you'd expect. (Which is to say, not good.)

Apparently this company went looking for a logo in our inappropriate balloons posts:


"Stop imagining"? What do you think I've been TRYING to do?

Also, wouldn't that logo be more appropriate on a pair of swim trunks?

(HEYO!)

And finally, you know you've been reading this blog too long when a simple road sign makes you giggle/guffaw/startle the cats with screeches of amusement:



What, you mean, like this?

[giggle]

Marshmallow icing always was my favorite.

Hey Brian S., Micheline F., & Jacob & Jennifer H., if you ever see this:

...you can blame me.

Cheat Sheet Cakes

"Excuse me, but what is this cake supposed to be?"

"That? That's a princess tiara, of course."

"Seriously? Wow. I never would've got that. Uh. Thanks."

....

"Sorry to bother you again, but could you tell me what this icing blobby bit here is?"

"It's a telephone."

"And this one over here?"


"That's a poodle."

"And that?"

"Tank covered in butterflies."

"I...see. Thanks."

.........


"Hi again. I was just wondering...."

*sigh* "Look, lady, do I have to label everything in this bakery for you?"

[brightening] "Oooh, if you wouldn't mind..."

"FINE."







(If you're thinking this is getting a little ridiculous, just wait.)

Theeeere it is.

Thanks to MWD, Sandi G., Joshua L., Betsy N., Ed P., and Nicole P., who know better than to believe everything they read. (That's obviously Oscar. [head tilt] Or maybe Rizzo.)
