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? ;)

Piratey Skullduggery

It's Talk Like A Pirate Day, minions, but I really don't know much about bandwidth or encoding or seeding bitcoin frame rates, so I'm afraid I can't hook you up with free GoT downloads.


But I CAN show you how not to draw a skull and crossbones:

See, as a rule, you don't want knitting needles stuck in a bicycle seat.

But I'll admit the rules here are more like "guidelines."


What's that? You want the redhead?

Drink up, me hearty; he'll look better that way.


And speaking of really bad eggs:

X marks the spot where the evil egghead hovers.


Remember, if there's ONE thing Pirates like, it's bad puns, numbering things, and the letter...


Pirates also like to growl. And snowflakes. And... running in circles? Look, pirates like a lot of things, OK? Pirates have layers. Like an onion. Or chip dip. Or a big floofy skirt. Or... dang, can't think of anything else.


Thanks to Bailey G., Alison W., Robin H., & Christi for not giving me a SINGLE opportunity to make a good "seamen" joke. What kind of minions are you, anyway?

Subjective Reasoning

Sometimes the best part of checking the Cake Wrecks email is reading the subject lines you readers come up with.  After all, it's not every inbox that can boast lines like "Loose Stool or Sea Slug?" and "Two Words: Flaming Caterpillar."

Here are some more fantastic, actual examples of reader email titles from the archives. (No, seriously, I am not making these up.)


"Dogs with grad caps nailed to their skulls" - from Amy T.

(Admit it: you would open that one first, too.)

And she really nailed that description on the head, huh?


"Asphyxiation Barbie: SVU" - Sarah M.

"Looks like somebody..." 

[removing sunglasses]

"...took this doll's breath away."


 "I was looking for Monistat at the Walmart..." - Scott F.

"Yeast ring?" I donut think that means what you think it means...


"Princess Leia's Frhog" - Colleen K.

 "Help me, Oinkie One Kenobi; you're my only hop."


"Madagascar Nipples Cake" - Amy E.

[Insert "Tracts of land" joke here.]


"Peanut Mouth Cookie Ninja" - Amanda B.

(Does the head wound mean the ninja's already been here?)


And my personal favorite:  

"I don't know what it is, but it's angry and it has a guitar." - Petra R.

To be fair, it also has a pilgrim hat.
