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? ;)

Cinco de Mayo Madness

Happy Cinco de Mayo! Or, as it's known in the original Spanish, [rolling Rs dramatically] Cinco de Mayo.

As you may know, Cinco is about celebrating Mexican heritage, culture, and those big yellow hats drunk people wear:

 

What you may not know is that Cinco is also a celebration of drippy cheese volcanoes:

"But it's MY drippy cheese volcano. Nachos."

 

Plus... submarines?

Yeesh, it's like trying to read hieroglyphics. What do you suppose "sperm" "3" "Mayo" means?

Which reminds me: what does happen when a baker can't fit the word "Cinco," and decides to use the number instead?

Well, as Reginald here found out, that depends on if the baker knows how many "Cinco" is:

SO CLOSE.

 

And finally, for your Cinco de Mayo pleasure:

What appears to be angry organ meat...

...on the beach...

...playing maracas.

I am terrified beyond the capability for rational thought.

Olé!

Painfully Honest Cakes

Remember, kids, if you can't say anything nice...

...say it with cake.

 

Today is National Honesty Day, but before you go dropping those truth bombs, let's take a look at some ways you can be completely honest but still somewhat polite:

And my personal favorite:

Only works with Angelas, though.

I just realized if you read those three together, you get a short poem:

"You are tolerable.
You are slightly above average.
You are Angela."

I like it.

 

If you can be a little more effusive, there's also this option for a completely honest compliment:

"And hey, I mean that."

 

But let's be honest: 99% of the people you know are total jerkfaces, and the only reason we say nice things on their cakes is because it's their birthday and we want cake.

So here's a compromise: start with "happy birthday," and then throw in a little truth:

Boom.

 

See, the exclamation mark makes it chipper!

 

The misspelling will confuse everyone long enough for us to make a run for it.

 

If you'd rather avoid all that conflict, though, then how about a general statement that everyone can agree on?

TRUTH.

 

Thanks to Nichelle O., Gina G., Kristin S., Kitzy C., Joan A., Sarah C., Liz M., Doug K., & Michele D. for spouting off.
