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? ;)

The Farce is Strong With This One

We interrupt your Friday wreckage to bring you this special report:


Yes, a Belgian burger joint has recently debuted the questionably spelled "Dark Vador Burger," simultaneously offending grammar nazis, fanboys, and taste buds everywhere.

Since it appears this Fan Tum Menace uses a large charcoal briquette for a bun, we decided to hit the local Jabba Jamba Hut for a few "Han-on-the-street" reactions:


"That's no moon. Luke, use the forks!" - Ben Kenobi, Krayt Caller

"I have a very bad feeling about this." - Luke Skywalker, Incessant Whiner

"These are NOT the buns you're looking for." - Princess Leia, Princess

"Look's kind of Chewie to me. One thing's for sure, we're all gonna be a lot thinner!" - Han Solo, Shot First


The Jedi Council could not be reached for comment, but we did receive this automated voicemail:

"It's a TRAP!" - Admiral Ackbar, One Hit Wonder


The Imperial Empire also weighed in with this e-mail from Darth Vader, Sith Lord:

"Come to the dark side. We have charcoal. HAHAH!! But seriously, I find your lack of taste....disturbing. And did you see they misspelled my name? I mean, SERIOUSLY."




Update: I'm relieved to see so many people have grasped my true objective in this post, which was to start a debate over whether the burger chain in question is actually Belgian or French. Bravo! You've passed the test, and may now commence commenting on Youtube videos.

At any rate, the Yahoo article I referenced claims it's Belgian, so my sincere apologies if it is, in fact, French.

Also, according to the latest Epcot Threat Level Report the French translation of Darth Vader is actually "Dark Vader," although you have to say it with a French accent. There are also a lot of footnotes about "Vader" meaning "father" and copyright stuff and whether or not black bread tastes good, but by that point I was distracted by something shiny and lost interest. You can read it all for yourselves in the comments here and on Facebook, though, on the off chance you've misplaced your cattle prods and need to punish yourself for something.

Well, I think that's everything! Have a fantabulous weekend, everyone, and may the Farce be with you...ALWAYS.

Flying the Hungry Skies

"Excuse me, Ma'am, is this your cake?"


"Well, I'm going to have to confiscate it."

"What? Why?"

"This so-called 'frosting' is clearly a 'gel' and therefore threatens national security. Move along.

"But, but..."


"Whoah, whoah, whoah. Sir, I'm going to have to take that mean, that dangerous looking Santa cake.

"It looks suspicious."

"But food is allowed through security!"

"Yes, but this obviously isn't 'food.' It's some kind of weapon. And I'm hungry.

"Oh, did I say that last bit out loud? Haha, silly me. NEXT.

[munching] "So, what have we here?"

"Just a little gift for the family back home."

"I'm sorry, but there's no way for me to know that's really a cake and not some kind of zombie snowman capable of terrorizing your fellow passengers. I'll have to take it off your hands."

"No, look! I can take a bite! See? Yummy cake!"

"Nice try, terrorist. Now we'll have to extract that. Sergeant? Take him away. (But leave the cake.) NEXT.


"No, no, I'm sorry, animals aren't allowed."

"It's a reindeer CAKE."

"We can't be too careful.


"Hold up there, Miss. Do you have a permit R2D2C3PO for that item?"

"There's no such thing!"

"Of course there is, Miss, and I'm the official gingerbread cake confiscator." [flashing badge]

"Did you...did you just flash a Subway rewards card at me?"


"Yes, you did!"

"No, I didn't. Gimmie the cake."


"So I guess you'll be taking my cake, too, then?"

"Nope, that one looks perfectly harmless. Have a nice flight!"


Thanks to Mark & CJ, Naureen, Kelly D., Brooke F., Kittie L., Sandy K., and the TSA, who really have started confiscating cupcakes because the frosting is a "gel." Enjoy those flights, everyone.
