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? ;)

The result was predictable, but their vision statement makes it delightfully ironic:

Now if only we could empower technology to transform wreckerators.

 

One question, oh-so-many answers:

Let's... START... withhow... MUCH... I hear William Shatner... RIGHTNOW.

 

And finally, that awkward moment when you can't tell if the cake is for a baby shower or a bachelorette party:

For the record: I still don't know.
