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? ;)

Recipes for Wreckage

You know you're asking for a Wreck when...

...your college has the initials "CNU" and the family member who orders has a strong southern accent:

...you use any kind of shorthand on the order form:

...the color of icing you ask for could also be a proper name:

(For a double birthday party. At least both ladies were equally snubbed!)

...you use the words "camo" AND "army" while describing what you want:

"So Funny" In Bold, with Exclamation Mark

I haven't had much time to write lately, but fortunately these bakers have provided all the commentary we need:

So many questions...

...so little interest in the answers.


(Not pictured was the third cookie cake, which read "Nothing. Two should be enough, thanks!"*)

Poor "ChRis"; not a speck of orange to be found!

Bueno!


*Yes, I'm joking; there wasn't a third cake. (So far as I know.)

Stephanie J., Kathryn S., Wendy M., & Jenny, you guys rock in all caps!

NOTE: D'oh! Ok, you doubters were correct: the "in Spanish" cake IS an intentional order. Sorry, Tasteful Cakes, and thanks for having such a great sense of humor about it!

UPDATE ON JOHN: John is out of ICU and feeling gooood! So good, in fact, that he's been pestering the publisher to let us go straight back on tour the second he's discharged from the hospital. (Hm. Maybe I should recommend another head examination...)

It will be a few weeks before his lungs are completely clear, and he will continue to be on massive amounts of antibiotics in the meantime, but as of this moment you'd never know he was deathly ill a few days ago. That's the power of prayer, warm wishes, good juju, and modern medicine for you! Thank you all SO MUCH; your e-mails, comments, jokes, tweets, pics of get-well cakes, and offers of help have been overwhelming, and helped us more than I can say.
