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? ;)

Oh, sorry. I was trying to... [putting on sunglasses]... PAWS FOR EFFECT.


Granted, this Army 1st Sergeant insignia is little more complicated, but rest assured: if a baker tells you she can do it, SHE CAN DO IT.

Or she's working for the evil eye of Sauron.


This next one is a fancy-schmancy emblem you put on your car, I assume to brag about the fact that you enjoy tomato juice:


And this is the groom's cake a baker made after studying that symbol for a solid 3 seconds before proceeding to recreate it entirely from memory and plumber's putty:

Peanut gallery? Start your engines.


And finally, this wrecker has a cool party trick! Turn a Falcon:

...into a real turkey!

Or maybe a Pac-Man ghost, eating a banana?
