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? ;)

Wrecky Exhibitionists

Sometimes I think of wrecks not as really, really bad cakes, but really, really bad art.

And to make them seem more arty (and to amuse myself, because let's be honest, that's a priority) I'll give them hoity-toity art names, like:

 

"Blanket Of White Silence, Being Loudly Smothered"

 

Or
"Lobster Steroids."

 

"Two Young Black Birds Mustache You A Question"

 

"Ode To An Airbrush Tip That Wasn't Screwed On Tight"

 

"High Five, Velveeta!"

 

"An Early Midsummer's Morn Shattered By A Bird Puking"

 

And lastly:
"Easter Bunny, Deconstructed"

I hope this brings you a whole new appreciation for your local wreckerARTers, minions.

 

Thanks to Jennifer V., Anne L., Stephanie B., De C., Michael R., Samantha S., & Stephanie G. for helping these wrecks look even more sketchy.

Hamilton Gets (Cake) Wrecked

I'm a bit dehydrated after last night's Tony Awards (PS, John, we need more tissues), but it was so worth it. Almost as many laughs as tears, great music, and my newest obsession, Hamilton, swept up 11 awards.

I realize many of you have yet to drink the revolutionary Kool-Aid, though, and are still a little fuzzy on what exactly Hamilton is.

So here to further fuzz it up - and make my fellow Hamiltonians snorfle - are some of the show's top songs... illustrated with wrecky cakes.

Ready?

 

My Shot

I don't think he's throwing this one away, you guys.
(Ignore the nipple.)
(It's not that kind of show.)

 

The Story Of Tonight

Oh, they'll be telling this one, all right.

 

Right Hand Man

Yeah... that's not the choice I would've gone with.
(Not to point fingers or anything.)

 

Helpless

Prediction: they will never be satisfied.

 

You'll Be Back

"Time will tell. You'll remember that I served you well."

 

Wait For It

"...."

 

Stay Alive

Just one slice. That would be enough.

 

Say No To This

"Uh-oh! Time to pay the piper for the pants you unbuckled!"

 

The World Turned Upside Down:

I see you smiling over there, George.

 

One Last Time

"We're gonna teach 'em how to say goodbye!"

"... which may take a while."

 

Best of Wives And Best of Women

She knows who she married: he's out standing in his field.

 

Thanks to Dana S., Camirae, V.W., Nicole V., Aurora C., Shannan P., Anna C., Kathryn R., Andrea W., Katie M., Kathryn T., & Carrie D. for the excuse to make nerdy Broadway jokes today, because after last weekend, I needed this.

And for my fellow Hamiltonians, a helpful PSA:


Though personally, I don't want to be cured. ;)
