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! You! In the red shirt! Wanna join the team?

Look, up above! It's a Cthulpoo Pony!

Watch out for their aerial bowel assault!


Now, step lively! The Guide warns of AFGs. You could fall and break your neck.

"Areas of Fluctuating Gravity? I don't think they exi-- aiieeeggghhhh!"


Listen! Do you smell something?

As I suspected: it's the herbivorous blast-ended skrewt!
("They call me... Tim.")

Mind the pincers; they've got nasty, big, pointy teeth!


Well, that's three. There's just one more danger --

The Excitable Squirrels of Amorosity!

Look out, men! They'll go straight for your nuts!
(Whose idea was it to bring all these peanuts, anyway?)

You know it's really not my habit to intrude

But colon cupcake cakes are really kind of rude


It's pretty obvious this teapot is a dude:

Heh. Aheh.

You glaze a poo stack, Jack.


Skip the cake pan, Stan.


Put on some bear toys, Roy.

Just listen to me.


Such a big fuss, Russ.

Can't you see it's just too muuuuch?


There's no gift card for me, Lee.

Still a cheapskate, I see.


Thanks to Mariel C., Casey, Susan S., Aaron R., Stephanie, Becky M., Meredith M., Ailis M., & Kathryn H., who know Mom will love anything you get her, but a better cake wouldn't hurt.
