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? ;)

ARRRRGH

"So, Kristen, sweetie, how was school?"

"Fine."

"Anything fun happen?"

"No."

"Are you looking forward to your party this weekend?"

"I guess."

"Aw, c'mon, it's your sixteenth birthday! This is a big deal! How about I order you a nice frilly pink cake with lots of ribbons and bows and puppies on it? Huh? Would you like that?"

"MOTHER."

"What?"

"NO."

"Well, what kind of cake do you WANT me to order, then? Just tell me!"

"Something to communicate the utter futility of modern existence."

"...."

"And NO BOWS."

"Er... So you want like a skull and crossbones or something?"

"Just the skull."

"Right. Er...ok! Great! We'll just work in a fun pirate theme!"

"Whatever."

Many thanks to mom Karen G., who was told a "full-size, realistic skull" would be no problem, and got this instead. Though to be fair, I'm sure Kristen appreciated all the pink.
