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? ;)

A V-Day Snippet

So tell me, Wreckies: was yesterday an exercise in eye-rolling and teeth-gritting and ignoring all those saps on Facebook posting pictures of their chocolates and roses and oh-so-romantic dinners?

Don't worry, you're not alone.

In fact, in the spirit of sweet schadenfreude, here's proof that your day was at least better than this guy's:


No matter how you slice it, that's one cutting take on "V-day."

It's also the only cake that comes with a side of frozen peas.


[Note: If you're not having a hearty chortle right now, you've either a) never known anyone who had a vasectomy, or b) had a vasectomy.]

[Note Note: John's not laughing.]


Thanks for the shear genius, Kim D.


Wreck A "Bye," Baby

You know, there's nothing quite like a goodbye cake for that really emotional farewell:

Because "this cake isn't going to pay for itself" wouldn't fit.


If you're one to keep your feelings bottled up, you can always rely on a tried and true saying to do the emoting for you:

A missing apostrophe, an unnecessary comma, a snarky sentiment... this is what Cake Wrecks is all about, folks.


Sometimes a playful insult can help soften the blow of a friend leaving town:

Because there's nothing like a good punch to the ol' funny bone to cut through those pesky tears.


For your friends moving down under, there's always the short and sweet route:

 So sweet. Like a lemon. Like a misspelled lemon. Like the face you make when you get lemon juice squirted in your eye. Which is coincidentally like the face I'm making right now.


Of course, the sweet can turn sour when an aspiring artist joins in:

I'd like to flick off those quotation marks used to indicate "waving."

Although, actually, it kind of works. Like even the wreckorator knew that hand was a joke.


Seeing off your oldest friend becomes a whole lot easier when you invite Tom Foolery to the party:

Because confusion is the best distraction from actual emotion. Who is dancing? Are there two princes or just one princess? What's a goad? Does Micheal really spell his name that way? WHAT IS GOING ON HERE?!


Still, regardless of your wording, remember to keep the attitude positive by finding something genuinely nice to say:

Hey, that could have ben a lot crappier.


Buh bye, Lynne R., buh bye, Stephanie F., buh bye, Tisiphone, BUH BYE, Corie, buh bye, Kary N., buh bye, Mollie R., & buuuuh BYE, Casey S.
