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? ;)

Send Up the Jolly Roger!

Today is Talk Like a Pirate Day, but rather than plunder the script of the Disney Pirates ride like I usually do, I've decided to instead look at that most iconic of piratey things: the Jolly Roger. 

Now, the Jolly Roger is usually a skull and crossbones on a black flag:


But when recreated on a cookie: becomes a petrified Scottish Terrier.

Or maybe a French Poodle. Or German Shepherd. Irish Wolfhound? Oh! Norwegian Ridgeback! English Bulldog!!



For those less canine-inclined, there's also this option:

Those look like some real fun guys. Dude. 


Here's one that'll strike fear in the hearts of witches and wizards everywhere:

No bones about it: There is now a Dark Mark on this bakery's record. Tsk, tsk.


And if you think that'd be better without all the airbrushing...

You'd be right.

But it also kind of looks like a moose.


And finally, my personal favorite:

The Jolly Roger from American Dad.




Relax; I'm sure he means you no harrrrrrm.


Thanks to Alana F., Cheryl L., Melissa F., Roxanne B., & Robin H. for all the pirated material. Now, chocolate moose, anyone?


Fire Two!

Think that last wreck was bad?

Well, it was.

Really, REALLY bad.

But now it's time to turn up the heat and fire off a few more fire wrecks. Oh yeah. FEEL THE BURN!

Burn, amoeba, burn.


Finger-licking flames? NOW we're cooking!



But seriously, that's awful.


And speaking of "finger-licking," I think this campfire took the term a little too literally:

The Cheez Whiz isn't helping.



Or possibly Bob.


Harley Davidson has always been known for its "tough guy" image.

That and leather halter tops. (For the last time, John: NOT a good look for you.)

Oh, and also french fries.

Lots of french fries.

Born to be deep fried and salted.


Now, close your eyes. Give me your hand. Darling. Am I...only dreaming? Or is...this...burning...AN ETERNAL FLAME??

No? Oh.

Well alright then.


A toast to Brandi V., Quinn S., Tracey, Holly F., April Z., and Jackie M. for the flame wars.

And also to Basic Instructions for a little inspiration.
