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? ;)

Hello and thank you for visiting Cake Wrecks, where all of your hopes for humanity are dashed on a daily basis. Sadly, we are unable to meet your humor requirements today due to:

__ Travel
__ Plague
__ A pack of wild rodents gnawing off our extremities
__ All of the above
 X  Nap time

Instead, please take this opportunity to entertain yourself by:


- Correcting this cake:


- Guessing what this is supposed to be:


- Brainstorming at least three (3) suitable puns for this:

Always Butterflies: Now with wings!


- Writing a short story to explain this scene:

Suggested title: Revenge of the lobsters


- Leaving a colorful message after the beep.



Thanks to Gin M., Lori R., Elaine K., and Anne M. for continuing to hold.


Ahhhhh....GOOF OFF!!

I'm up! I'm up. Sort of.

So, as you know, today is International Goof-Off Day. Yep, international law clearly prohibits you from doing anything productive today, so you should tell your boss you'll be napping under your desk and/or playing Angry Birds all afternoon. (Maybe do that via e-mail...sometime tomorrow.)

Other than more naps and possibly making waffles later, *I* plan to celebrate by expending even LESS effort than usual on today's post. I know, I know; you didn't think that was possible.

Well, BEHOLD!!


This is a dinosaur:


This is a basketball:


This is The World's Best Resignation Letter:


This is a divorce cake:



And this is the most ridiculous flamingo/poo-dropping/Peeps/Jack Daniels wedding cake I have ever seen:

(Yes, they even cut holes through the cake tiers for the pillars. We can only hope it was done ironically.)

Nice to see we're not the only ones goofing off around here, eh?

Thanks to Reihonna F., Erin M., Sebastian S., Linda N., & Melanie R. for helping us get in the holiday spirit. May your naps be plentiful, and all your birds extra angry


[John! Where'd you put the Nutella? It's WAFFLE TIME.]
