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? ;)

Twins!

I think Mandy said this was a sports logo of some sort:

Which the bakery in question did a fantastic job recreating in CCC form:

NOT!!

[derisively] Ahahahahahah!
Hahahah!

[snorting hiccup-turned-choke]
Hooheehaha-hack!

[coughing fit]
Ack ack ack!

[sound of water glugging]

[setting glass down] Ahem. Wow, who knew sarcastic sounds of [cough, cough] contempt could be so dangerous? Whew! Gonna have to dial back the maniacal laughter in the future.

What's that? The Wreck? Oh, well, Mandy, I gotta tell ya: Transporter malfunctions like these are why I prefer to travel by shuttlecraft.

Do These Taste Chewy to You?

I think I've let the Star Wars fervor sparked by the awesomeness that was the Vader Baby Shower cake and Yoda's Stint in Cake Decorating die down long enough. Now it's time to visit the other side of the spectrum, where we will delve into the true mysteries of the galaxy, and ask the one question every brave soul must answer before continuing on his or her quest to become a true Jedi:

"Chewbacca? Is that you?"

Of course this question is often made more difficult by Chewy's striking resemblance to Big Foot:


His mixed lineage of both Ewok and Muppet ancestry:

Dirty Muppets, I might add.

And his constant, never-ending battle with constipation:


"Dude, what did I say about having 12 cheese burritos for dinner? Huh?"


Tanita S., Sarah S., & Kaye B., I know this is old news, but have you seen the Wookiee model nightstand? All the scruffy-looking Nerf herders have them.


UPDATE: You guys continue to amaze me with your awesomeness. Madalina, creator of the Constipated Chewy, wrote in to tell me she's NOT a professional baker - so that's a definite my bad - but that she's fine with it remaining here. "I still get a laugh looking at it," she wrote, "and hope that it makes other people laugh too!" Thanks, Madalina, and may I say it's my hope that someday ALL bakers have your grace and good humor?

And as for the rest of you: Be sure to check out Madalina's blog Duh-Licious and show her some love, k?
