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? ;)

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.



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.)



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. ;)

A Matter Of Degrees

Graduates, this one's for you:

And hey, I MEAN THAT. [wink wink][finger guns][honking red clown nose]

What, you can't read it? Have you tried brushing it with lemon juice and holding it over a candle?
'Cuz I think that's how it works.


Of course, every baker knows plastic is the easiest way to send a message. Just ask for the "Grad Plaque."

Then stand back, and watch the magic happen.


Now, Jacquie ordered a cake for the graduates of 2014, which means this next photo is either 2 years old, or they're really into delayed "gradification." (Sha-WING!)

Don't be distracted by my master punmanship, though; the important thing to remember here is this cake is SUPPOSED to have 2014 on it:

It, uh, may help if you say 2014 out loud.

Theeeere it is.


And finally, for one last Sha-WING! and a miss, scroll down:

Beth ordered the one up top, and got the one that hangs low.

I think I speak for us all when I say: that's one way to get to the head of the class.


Thanks to Casey R., April M., Jacquie W., and Beth L., who I'm guessing graduated summa cum laude.
