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 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.


The Yuletide is Coming In

Now that it's almost Christmas, bakeries are working hard to make all their designs more "season-appropriate."

Which is why you can now find, for example, the army toys attacking giant poinsettias:

"Call in backup! We need more silly string!"


And flotsam-bedecked "Christmas guitars":

"Oh Oh Oh" is right.


And of course, that perennial holiday favorite:

The Puppy-Pecking Parasite of Pastries Past!

It's a deer tick.


Oh, c'mon, quit groaning: that was freaking brilliant on my part.


Heather M., Melissa G., & Jessica L., do you suppose they used "sugar doe" to make it?
