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? ;)

Ya Think?

One faces many questions in today's bakeries. But one in particular most of all:

"What's this?"


"They're puppy dogs, of course!"


"Someone order a Star Trek cake?"


"That? That's a cheerleader, hon. See the pom-poms?"




And last, but never least:

"Believe it or not, it's supposed to be bacon."

Yep. Our thoughts exactly.
