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, Bebeh

"Girl, you lookin' fine. Why don't you come over here, and give daddy a lil' sugar?"

"Check it. I've got a spiky polar-bear-skin rug for us to lounge on, and some suh-weet champagne glasses the size of water coolers. I even put on my navy blue tighty-whities, 'cuz I know how much you dig those.

"What's that, kitten? You like the light blue ones better? No problem."

[patting rug] "This cracked concrete floor is hard, baby, but not as hard as...er...my...devotion to you? Yeah. Yeah, that's it. Hey, kids! What are you doing in here? Amscray, will ya?"

"That's better. Now, where were we? Ah, yes, talking about how lucky you are - or at least how lucky you're gonna be. [waggling eyebrows] Aww yeaaah. This sea I'm lying in is the ocean of my love, and it's all for you, girl, it's all for you. [wink wink]

"What's a matter, doll? Still not convinced? How 'bout if I do some leg lifts?"

"My sticker may say 'yellow', pudd'n, but this here treat is pure chocolate, if you know what I'm sayin'."

I don't know about you, Aimee T., Lisa C., J.B., and Becky B., but I am definitely in the mood - for cake.

Bonus Side Tangent Contest Results

The other day I threw down the challenge gauntlet, asking you all to find me a cake celebrating the flu or food poisoning. Many of you jauntily took up that gauntlet, brushed it off, and are now attempting a brisk-yet-virtual slap-across-my-face with the following:

Mary B was the first to submit it, and I must say being sick never looked so cute. Of course, I would assume this is a "get well soon" cake, not a "Yay! You have the flu/chicken pox!" cake. Still, not bad.

Jan G. took a more causal* approach to the challenge:

As near as we can make out, the cake board says "I love microbes!" leaving us to assume the purple and yellow mass is supposed to be...a microbe. (It's a gift - what can I say?) Since bacteria and viruses are microbes, and this cake is *clearly* quite enamored with those, I'd say we have as close to a winner as we're going to get. Excellent work, Jan!


* Yes, "causal", not "casual" - though I can see how you'd get those mixed up.
