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? ;)

Ok, You Win. I'll Post the Divorce Cakes.

I can't dislike viral photo e-mails too much - after all, one of them inspired this blog - but since there are now several divorce-cake e-mails flying through the interwebs, I'm pretty sure the only way I can get you lovely loyal Wreckporters to STOP SENDING THEM is by posting some. So...

"ARE YOU HAPPY NOW?!?"

Whoah. Sorry. The bitter vibes must be getting to me. Let's see if I can find something a little sweeter...

Ah, much better. Look how cute! Who knew blood spatters could be that adorable?
(And if you're wondering if the groom ever pushes the bride off, then the answer is yes.)

And by the way, while today's cakes are funny, they're also extremely well-made. I know this. So there's no need to point it out in the comments, Ok? We're laughing with these bakers, not at them.

In fact, Elite Cake Creations even specializes in divorce cakes. They get pretty creative with their designs, too:

Visualized metaphors. Gotta love 'em.

Yes, you really can buy miniature coffins for your wedding ring.

Of course, a good divorce cake doesn't have to be super elaborate:

I think that gets the point across, don't you?

While some divorce cakes can be more biting than funny, this one never fails to make me smile:

I think it's those little feet sticking out, Wicked Witch style. Heh. Plus, I was delighted to learn this was made by a bakery right in central Florida. Kudos, Sprinkles Custom Cakes!

Let's end with what I'm sure was a gag cake, but is still good for a chuckle:

Note to guys: don't get any ideas. We only think it's funny if someone ELSE gets it.

And lastly, I think this is a perfect time to wish my fantabulous hubby, John, a happy 11th wedding anniversary. (Yes, really.) I love you, Sweetie! Here's to growing old and increasingly alarming to our friends together.

Thanks to the many billions of you who sent in the various Divorce Cake e-mails. Over. And over. And over again.

There, I Fixed It

"Aw, rats. I forgot to capitalize the H on this birthday cake."

"Hm."

[scrapescrapescrape]

"There! Perfect."

"Madison did such a great job, earning her brown belt in Karate! Oh, but wait...she's a GIRL, isn't she? Oops. Huh. This graphic has two boys on it."

"Well, no problem. I've got it covered."


"Yep, that was a hairy problem, but I sure got it covered. Heh. Aheh."

Wrong name? Nooo problem.

[whispering] No one will EVER know.
