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? ;)

Geek Life, Cake Style

A few times a year John and I go to commune with Our People at local sci-fi and comic conventions. This weekend is one of the big ones here in Orlando, so we've been feverishly finishing up a new costume to wear - because yes, we're THOSE kinds of geeks.

Of course you're just here for cake pictures, though... so here's a cakey hint at what our costume's going to be:

It reminds me of the babe. And Christmas tinsel.

 

And since I've got geekdom on the brain, here's a Missed Mark for you Doctor Who fans:

OoooOOoooo

 

AAAAIIEEEEEEEEE!

 

And one for Batman:

 

This must be after Superman beat him up.

 

Sorry to break it to you, Avengers fans, but it turns out Thor is a real heel:

You are not worthy to lift his... HAMMERTOE.

But hey, at least he's got sole.

(I think the baker did it just for kicks. It's a shoe-in for "weirdest cupcake," don't you think?)

 

For you classic comic fans, here's Batman giving Robin the wedgie of the century:

"Sweet spandex-strangling sausages, Batman, that stings!"

 

And let us never forget:

I have been, and shall always be, mortally offended by this cake. [glare]

 

But to end on a happy note, allow me to present wrecky minion Melissa P.'s daughter, along with the birthday cake she specifically requested:

Princess Hulk.

Now THAT is a Hulk "smash" cake, y'all. AND I APPROVE.

 

Thanks to Tiffani W., Joe H., De C., Sarah B., Leah S., Wendy D., & Melissa P. for raising The Next Generation just right. And hey, see some of you at MegaCon this weekend!

A Reptile Dysfunction

In honor of World Turtle Day, let's take a moment to meet some of the lesser known turtle cake varieties.

Because nature is beautiful, people.

 

The Slimy Nope Tail:

Also collects spores, molds, and fungus!

 

Snootless Flipper Swaddles:

They do a mean sloppy swish.

 

The Hardboiled Nubby-Teeter:

The candy coating makes it go down easier.

 

The Majestic Elephant-Pawed Flirpity Floo:

So named for its magnificent flirpity-floos.

 

The Squeaky Noodle Squelcher:

Watch out; they squeak!

 

Hypno Danger Piddle:

Try not to stare.

 

And finally, and most majestic:

The Dong-Headed Stumpy Trunks:

Truly the pokiest of them all.

 

Thanks to Kathryn S., Shannon K., Megan B., Liz K., Kyna H., Jamie L., & Sara M. for really coming out of their shells.
