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.

It's Worse Than That, They're Dead, Jen

So Jen wants you to think our national parks are all fun and games and kayaking and snuggling baby otters and stuff. Well, we live in Florida, man! We have the Everglades where literally everything wants to kill and eat you. Or kill you and leave your body for something ELSE to eat you. But definitely with the killing thing.

What, you think I'm exaggerating?

THIS ALLIGATOR WANTS TO EAT YOUR FACE.

That's right, a smashed cake alligator wants to kill you. It's serious down here, guys.

 

And then there's the snakes:

"Help meeeee!"

Which this baker has so helpfully illustrated mid-murder.

 

We've got poison toads:

"I want you to croak."

 

And snakes:

GAAAAAAkeepscrollingkeepscrollingkeepscrolling

 

And giant angry spiders:

Who team up with killer bees...

 

Did I mention the snakes?

BECAUSE WE HAVE A LOT OF SNAKES.

 

Not to mention the armies of squirrel-sized mosquitoes:

They're very friendly. No sense of personal space.

 

Piranhas:

Seriously.

 

And panthers.

NO LION.

Because of course we have panthers. Why wouldn't we have panthers?! I mean, what would a swamp be without FRIGGIN PANTHERS?!?!?!

So.
To sum up, if you come to one of Florida's many beautiful national parks, you're gonna die. Probably. Best not to chance it. Just go to Disney and marvel at the animatronic deer and bunnies, which are super lifelike this time of year.
