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? ;)

Wrecks Reel News

[Old-timey news reel music]

Coming to you from Harry's Five and Dime in beautiful downtown Pleasantville, this IS Wrecks Reel News!

The big shopping weekend of '53 saw a slew of seething shoppers descending on local mercantiles, all in hopes of grabbing the deal of the decade!

Just look at them all lining up in a polite and orderly manner:

That's a Jim Dandy sight if I ever saw one!


The doors open, and they're off! Tearing through aisles, leaping over downed seniors; these fearless consumers will stop at nothing to get that last Timmy the Train:

And who can blame them? This new and improved model now comes fortified with heart-healthy asbestos! Isn't that swell?


What's that? Little Johnny wants a new baseball mitt? Ha ha, that's on aisle 5, ladies!

Boy, oh boy! That mitt's spiffy neat-o swell!


Ah, and here comes a satisfied customer now. Let's see how she's enjoying her shopping experi...



Whoah there, calm down, sweetheart! There's still plenty of time to buy your husband those new golf clubs before you have to make him dinner!


And speaking of husbands, this weekend even saw a few men venturing out of their easy chairs to find a little somethin' for their darling dames!

Like high heels:

Great for the gams! Perfect with aprons!


And makeup:

Keen for the kisser!


And don't forget the Kirby Upright, now weighing in at just 47 pounds!

So much easier to push around in those heels!

And that's all from Pleasantville!

We now return you to Walt Disney's The Story of Menstruation.

This has been Wrecks Reel News, reminding you that every day is a Marlboro day!

 Marlboro: Fresh, clean, and recommended by 4 out of 5 doctors AND your own baby!



Thanks to Jess, Natalie B., Larissa G., Dani S., Alison, Brittni J., and Mark B. for reminding us that not everything was better in the good ol' days, and also that edible cigarettes are really, really nasty.


The Turkey Aftermath

I'm sure most of you have had enough turkey by now to last another 364 days (or at least until lunch), but darned if your Thanksgiving submissions aren't still pouring in and cracking me up. So let's do a final send off with the best of what came in on the big day itself:


If there were a Vegas review starring hot dogs and/or Twinkies...uh...dangit, now I kind of wish that actually existed. Somebody get on that, will you?


 The irony, it runs deep.

(For extra lolz, just imagine the little feet wiggling.)


I'm sure you've seen ads for those turkey ice cream cakes. You know, these ones?



Well, expectation, meet reality:

(Once you start seeing this as a greased pig stuck in a rabbit hole, it's pretty much all you CAN see.)


And finally, I've seen my share of disturbing turkey cakes, believe me. (BELIEVE ME.) And yet, I think this really could be the MOST disturbing turkey cake I have ever seen.


Turkey cake is people!  



Thanks to wreckporters Beth J., Nicki B., Rebecca W., & Courtney for "working" on a holiday. Extra leftovers for you, guys!


NOTE: For those of you avoiding the madness by staying home for Black Friday, might I point out that Wreck the Halls makes an excellent holiday gift, and is still only $6 on Amazon? [eyebrow waggle]
