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? ;)

Sochi Z!

Hallo, and welcome to Sochi Z, official bakery of Sochi Olympics!

As you can see, we have spent years preparing for your visit, and have spared literally no expense to make you feel welcome!

(Did I mention it's our RE-Grand Opening?)

(Now with shower curtains!)

(Please do not mind the construction workers. They are only here for lunch break. And to fix foundation. And roof. Maybe little plumbing. But that's IT.)


And, look!

We "welcome" you like the "family" you are! Haha!


Now, while you are here in our fair city, do watch out for all the open manholes in the street. In fact, just go ahead and drive in the waterways:

Is better that way.


Also, we have many packs of roving stray dogs.


They will, how you say... eat your face.


Perhaps you've heard stories of the athlete who had to break through the door of his bathroom to escape. Well, never you fear, kotyata, because I am here to tell you: this reminds me of very funny story...

Ahh, those were good times.

Also, do not break bathroom doors. We have you on camera, and we will prosecute. [meaningful glare]


Of course you are no doubt here to celebrate the sports and whatnot. We have cakes for those, too!


And no worries that OUR Olympic rings won't open; we made extra!

(See all of our Olympic cake specials here!)


And finally, to address the many questions we are getting regarding our city's facilities, we here at Sochi Z have made a delicious delicacy to illustrate the Sochi Toilet Operation:

You see? No toilet seat necessary! Now you, too, can poo like American Pooh! Haha! That's Sochi Z!


Thanks to Viviano L., Deborah A., Irene J., Tiffany W., Shannon H., Amber, Alison R., Katie H., Beth K., & Stephanie H. for the ringing endorsement.

Weekly Wreck Up 2/7/14

Some of my favorites that came in this week:

Oooh, Let's is!


How I know Valentine's Day is coming:

Stop picturing the swirly things as legs. Stop picturing the swirly things as legs. Stop picturing...


And after that, Mardi Gras!

Which is clearly flipping us all off for not knowing a fleur-de-lis when we see one.

(Btw, why is this on shelves already? Mardi Gras is in March, bakers! MARCH!)


[Update: Everyone else: "It's actually traditional to sell King Cakes from January through Mardi Gras."

Me: "That's a KING CAKE?!"]


And while you're chewing on that mystery, here's another:


(If you can stare at anything besides that blue ball Mr. Baldy McParachute-Pants is squatting on, then you're a better woman than I.)


Still, the crown jewel of this week's collection - the veritable pièce de résistance, if you will - has to be this thing:

the actual.


Thanks to Karyn S., Debi S., Robbie B., Lacey F., & Sarah W. for the magical ant-infested breakfast floating over an instagrammed landscape, because, seriously, I couldn't even make this stuff up.
