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? ;)

Funny

I love labels. See, I titled this post 'Funny', and therefore it is, right? I think that's the theory behind this cake, anyway:


Maybe we should try that with all cakes. See, this next one could be "Lizard Crushed Under Petrified Easter Egg":

Poor guy. Those eyes just about popped out, didn't they?

"What Happens When You Ask For 'Happy Birthday Jaime' Around St. Patrick's Day":


And "Recycling Soggy Corn Pops*":


To quote
"TV star" Alec Baldwin, "Mmm, mushy mush."


Happy Patricks, Sarah S., Steve R., Amy S. & Jeremy E.!

*Speaking of which, Corn Pops has the most insane website for a breakfast cereal I have ever seen. Has Kellogg's gone 'round the bend?

Corporate Sponsored Cakery

With the economy the way it is, companies are having to get pretty creative with their advertising dollars. So, I suppose it was only a matter of time before the corporate-sponsored wedding cake came along.


Now, I was going to make some sarcastic remark about TiVo making all the wedding guests wear fuzzy antennae and providing logo-riddled party favors, but when I checked the photo source I discovered they actually did.

Reality, you win. I just can't compete with your superior level of absurdity.


"Uh, girls? When I suggested a 'diaper cake' for the shower, I meant those cutesy things made of actual diapers. But hey, this is...nice. Really."


I can't be certain, but it looks like there's a beer can embedded in this cake. Which, from the ad exec's perspective, is perfect: the customer gets a cake AND a sample of your product. From the look of that cake, though, I think I'd just take the beer.

Besides, in the battle of the beers you know the one that teams up with Playboy is gonna win every time:

Now that thur cake is Classy with a capital "C", but you can't deny that the can placement is a stroke of genius. Srsly, is there any location on earth that gets more of men's undivided attention than a woman's chest? [waving] Hey, fellas, I'm up here. Hellooo! I said...oh, never mind. I think you just made my point anyway.

(Note: Yes, even the beer can is cake. Amazing, right? [shaking head] It's sad to see great talent wasted - I mean, c'mon: Coors Light?)

Lucinda M., Joy D., Kyla Z., and Summer R., I'm thinking I should get in on this racket. Tell you what: write www.CakeWrecks.com all over the next wedding cake you see, and I'll give you...well, nothing. But I might post the photo here if you send it to me. How's that?
