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? ;)

As some of you know, I have a special place in my heart for the Swedish Chef. (This is mostly due to John's dead-on impersonation.) So for today's Wreck, I figured I'd let the Cake Wreck Master show us how it's done (and for once I'm not talking about Sandra Lee).

If that "cake" looks familiar, it may be because you're of the five trillion readers who sent me this some weeks ago:

And if you'd like to see "cannibul cake" (aka Cakey the Cake from Outer Space) sing a little Karen Carpenter, you can go here.

What's THAT Supposed to Mean?

To their credit, the folks where Monica's husband purchased this tried to talk him out of it...

...but apparently, "He just wouldn't listen." So here's Monica smiling in a way that says - through gritted teeth - "Take the picture already...and then get that camera and other breakables as far away from your face as possible."

I don't have the story on this next one, but the underline is six kinds of ominous, don't you think?

Well, when you combine it with the whole coffin thing, that is.

And here's my favorite:

"Come back tomorrow, and we'll celebrate our second."

Personally I find this hilarious - but then I also think it's fun to introduce John at parties as "My first husband, John." Keeps him on his toes.*

Photography Tip of the Day: Unless you want people to think you topped your cake with stewed prunes, you might want to rethink photographing those glazed strawberries in black and white. Unless of course they ARE stewed prunes, at which point photography should be the least of your concerns. [shudder]

Today's Wrecks brought to you by: Monica B., Meghan R., & Anony M.. Thanks, guys!


*Love you, Sweetie!
