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? ;)

Not That Long Ago, In A Bakery Far From Okay... 

In case you missed it, Jen and John just built something insane, which they ROCKED at Star Wars Celebration last weekend.

I feel like a Star Wars theme is appropriate.


Quick, Luke, use the 4rth!

(It was then Obi Wan realized getting braces was a bad idea.)


"It's as if millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror, and were suddenly silenced."

"...with cookies."

(Granted, there are worse ways to be silenced.)


If Han and Leia were really into puns:


"I nose."


"Luke, *I* am your Farther."

"It's kind of a long-distance thing? Like, did you get my postcards?"


"Do. Or do not. There is no try."


"Did not, oh no you did. DID NOT."


"They see me rollin'...



OK, Vader, big finale time! Show us those pearly whites!

Theeeere it is.


Thanks Rachel V., Kimberly, Cassondra R., Evelyn D., Amy E., Emily M., Heidi L., and Micaline P., you were our only hope.

Sometimes bakers like to stretch themselves by making unusual object cakes. You know, stuff you don't usually see made into cake. Everyday things. Mundane things.

Stupid things.

Like this tiny broom.


And bikini bottoms:

JUST the bikini bottoms.

(Part of me wants to believe this is a Spongebob cake gone wrong.)


And this... tree?

Because when I think "festive party food," my first thought is, "I dunno, maybe a tree?"


Some conjoined pencils:

It's like those snap-and-share Popsicles, only ugly and harder to eat.


When I turn 44 I hope someone gets me a confusing baby shower cake:

Complete with lil' poo pile.

(It's a key. How do I know? YEARS OF EXPERIENCE.)
(Also Julie told me.)


And finally, there's this tall drink of water:

Which would be really boring if it weren't for the... captured tadpole.
(Yes, we're calling it a tadpole.)


Sooo, yeah. Way to stretch yourselves, bakers!



Thanks to Megan J., Heather F., K.B., Kathy B., Julie, & Leslie, who claims that "tadpole" rings a bell. [head tilt] Nope, I don't see it.
