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? ;)

Hey, All These Lyrics I Forgot...

Should all baking skills be forgot?
And never brought to mind?


Could all that schooling be for naught?

For all


For allll da-aang tiiime, my dear
For old brain wine!

La DAAAA da daaaaa da
something, something...


For bald hang(over) time!


Hey. You. Yes, you.


And you, too, lady.

Have fun tonight, guys, but please remember to always decorate responsibly.


Thanks to Anthony B., Lori D., Dimitra S., Cynthia P., & Jenny C. for helping us sing in the new yar.


The Irish Bakery Rovers

December 26th is traditionally the slowest day of the year for Cake Wrecks. Apparently, people are "spending time with family" or whatever. Now normally, we would put up the Sandra Lee Kwanzaa post which is glorious in its wreckitude, but this year, I thought I'd do something different.

Because Jen's asleep and I can do what I want because she's not the boss of me!*

(*Okay, technically, she is my boss. Love you, sweetie!)

...So, um, enjoy!


There were green alligators...


...and long-necked geese,


some pimply-backed horses...


...and some chimpanzees.


Some cats,


and rats,


and elephants...


...but sure as you're born,



the creepiest of all was the unicorn!



Thanks to Leslie J., Terri C., Luci, Samantha P., Sara A., Rysha M., Kathie N., Jenn M., and Chris B., who have probably all heard this song even though Jen hadn't because apparently, she didn't listen to 70's Irish folk music as a child. Weirdo.
