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? ;)

What's Love Got to Do With It?

Valentine's Day is tomorrow, and depending on your relationship status and tolerance of all things stuffed and cutesy, you're either dreading it or looking forward to some sweet gift-swapping with your SO.

Today's post is more for the former group of you, partly because it's Friday the 13th, and partly because there's nothing like depressing and/or angry offerings from jilted malcontents to make you feel better about opting out of the whole chocolate-covered love fest anyway.

Besides, who can resist a sardonic cookie?


Or how's this for an expression of love: a heart cake chopped in two?

It's almost poetic, really. That, or the baker on duty just got dumped.

I think this is supposed to be a heart. A sad, bruised, limping little heart. Po' widdle ting.

Uh, this is a cake celebrating love, right? I only ask because I'm getting a more creeped-out vibe than the warm fuzzies. "Oh, these purple blobbies? Those are for eating your soul."

Be yours? Why, you had me at the lumpy Pepto-pink frosting, Sugalumps. Aw yeeeah.

This cracked me up. I guess those emo kids working at the mall are good for something, after all.

(Yes, I'm kidding. You just have to figure out about which part.)

Collette, Lauren C., Beth F., Jessica S., Paula L., & Julie D., here's hoping someone checks "yes" on your Valentine cookies.

Wreck-Slingers, Part 2

Aaaand here he is: the man of the hour, our hero of the day, the one, the only...Spider-Man!!


Uh, Spider-Man? Hello?

Dang it, I guess we just missed him. Or, judging by the shape that cake is in, maybe we missed him a few weeks ago. Ew.

He's got to be around her somewhere, though; look:

Wow, that "web" is a real piece of...work. Yeah. I particularly like the baby-blue border; very...heroic.

Oh, wait, I think I see him over there - helloo-ooo! Spider-Man!

My, he's looking rather moody today, isn't he? And on all that chipper baby-blue and urine-yellow icing, too. Hey, Spidey, being controlled by an evil symbiote is no excuse to ignore proffered fist bumps, alright? So be nice.

Ah, and there he goes, slinking off again:

Dude, you could probably just walk across the... uh, say, what IS that? An electrical box? Gymnasium floor? What?

Ok, time for the Wreck-Slingers big finish! Ready? Aaand...

Jazz Hands!!
