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? ;)

A few of my favorite submissions this week:

 

Yeah! Go SPORTS!

 

Of course it's easy to focus on the mistakes, so let's take a second to appreciate that somewhere there's a professional baker who actually did this... on purpose.

("I call it, 'Barbie's Dream Petri Dish.'")

 

Could be worse, though. This one makes me want to launch a CSI investigation:

("Looks like Merle... [SUNGLASSES].... got smoked.")

And yes, I do realize "CSI investigation" is redundant.

 

SPEAKING of which...

Ow. My brain.

 

Because nothing delights a girl on her birthday quite like chopping off the head of a terrified Minnie Mouse:

"Don't worry, Minnie, this'll only hurt for seconds."

 

Just think: last week two of you loyal wrecky minions spotted this display, took a photo, and sent it in to me:

I love it when that happens! It's like Missed Connections, Cake Wrecks style!

So Sara? Brittany? YOUR DESTINY TOGETHER AWAITS.
(Dibs on the wedding cake photos.)

Oh, and I think that bamboo plant is trying to lick us.

 

A few weeks ago a couple of readers had a discussion on Twitter about Cake Wrecks, and since they kept tagging me in it, I was privy to their thoughts on how our posting misspelled cakes smacks of "intellectual snobbery," and really isn't that funny anyway.

I didn't reply at the time because the two weren't talking TO me, just ABOUT me. However, now, at long last, I believe I have an appropriate response.

Ahem hem hem.

This was supposed to say "Celebrate."

Olaf Heats Things Up

[Olaf:] "Oh, I don't know why but I've always loved the idea of summer, and sun, and all things hot...

[Kristoff:] "Really. I'm guessing you don't have much experience with heat."

[Olaf:] "Nope! But sometimes I like to close my eyes, and imagine what it'd be like when summer does come."

[cue music!]

♪ Bees'll buzz ♫

 

...kids'll blow dandelion fuzz,

(hurk)

 

♪ And I'll be doing whatever snow does...

In summer!

 

♪ A drink in my hand,

 

my snow up against the burning sand

 

♪ Prob'ly getting gorgeously tanned...

...IN SUMMER!!
