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? ;)

Guess Who!

ATTENTION CELEBRITY SINGERS: never hire a cake decorator to paint your portrait.

And for the rest of you: can you guess who's who on these cakes? I already gave you a hint. (Answers at bottom.)


Say, do you suppose this Wreckerator realized that "B'day" sounds exactly like "bidet"? That just seems like a bad play, eh? (Hey, these rhymes are unintentional, Ok?)

Did you guess them all? No cheating, now!

Ok, here are your answers:

First:

Tori looks through the looking glass.
Or, you know, the make-you-ugly fun-house glass.


Second:
Ohhh - the album is named "B'day". My bad. Or, M'bad.

And last but not least:

Yikes. I guess she does kind of have crazy eyes - I never noticed before. Huh.

Right, now go grab all your co-workers and see how they do. Chop chop!

Wreck-Slingers

Continuing in our superhero series, let's take a gander at the many and varied ways the arachnid-loving aerialist Spider-Man is maligned in icing:

Ok, so he's looking pretty good on the free mini-poster they included (the better to explain the cake, perhaps?), but what's going on with the figurines?

[tsking] "Spidey, have you been battling the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man again? You have, haven't you? [shaking head] I don't care if MJ IS stuck in that gargoyle: you have to learn to stick to your OWN movie plot lines!"

If we have to ask Batman why he's so serious, we need to ask Spidey why he's so worried. Could it be he's puzzling over what a happy "Birth 2ay" is?

Here he looks less worried and more...er...skinned and stretched:

I bet this is the "cake" Doc Ock would like for his birthday: after all, it's a CCC, so it's already inherently evil. [wicked grin]

And speaking of stretched skin, thank goodness this next one is "for display only":

Tell me the top of that cake doesn't look like an infectious skin disease. Go on.

Sheesh, Spider-Man is popular! Stay tuned for Wreck-Slingers, Part 2.
