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? ;)

Jingle Bell Shocks

Stockings around the Christmas tree

Look so bad that your jaw drops.


Once he got a good look at them

Santa Claus went into shock.


Who comes up with these Christmas cakes?

Have the bakers lost their minds?


Did they drink too much spiced eggnog?

Or are they legally blind?


You will see a glut of flotsam pieces as you neeear

Cakes that just won't make you jolly


Hey, d'you think that might be holly?

Shocking amounts of frosting, these

Might send you right 'round the bend


Will you hold out for better cakes

Or just buy these in the end?



[sing it with me, now!]

Diiiing doooong,



A choir of thanks to Maryann M., Janet G., Kadmi, Megan K., Katherine D., Jackson L., Ann M., Jenna C., Ashley S., & Grainne, who all want to go Christmas caroling with Sharyn. Me, too, guys. ME, TOO.



I'm particularly proud of today's lyrics, so for the full effect, hit play and start scrolling:



I found the species of this land

Often aren't all there

This one took some time for me to understand

They gave me words I just can't say

Somehow this sells

Proving Cake Wrecks is still here to stay

'Cuz even though they don't like me sooo snide

That's the thing that makes me feel alive!


The Mayans show

You just can't know    

Why some people are so slow

But weeee're stiiiiill heeeeere

If they were right we'd all be gone

But big surprise: THEY WERE WRONG



And weeee can cheer:



Thanks to Stacey L., Nancy H., Kimm W., Julie G., Ben M., Kama K., & Lisa N. for the staying power.
