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? ;)

Star Wars: The Cakey Farce Awakens

Say it with me, kids: I've got a baaaaad feeling about this.


Have you been watching all the previews, twittered sneak-peeks, and snazzy promo pics coming out for the new Star Wars movie?


Because I'm going to recap the best stuff for you.


I hear it's more aerodynamic this way.

("She may not look like much... but we also have ice cream.")


You've probably seen the new Storm Trooper helmets. So sleek and modern!

Not to mention happy-looking.


There's a lot of buzz around the new "fun-size" light sabers. Here's one turned on:

It's got a real "Jedi Master" vibe.


Aaand after its cooled off:

Actually, I hear they don't perform too well in the cold.

(Take note, padawans.)


The good news is Disney has spared no expense on special effects:


...and they're bringing in some awesome new lady characters!

Musical numbers to include:

A Whole New World (To Replace Alderaan)

Beauty and the BB-8

Vader Knows Best

Do You Want To Build An Intergalactic Senate


Some Day My Midi-Chlorians Will Come


The trailers haven't told us much about the new movie's story line, but I DID learn a beloved old friend will be making an appearance... as a new enemy.

That's right, my friends.

Get ready...

To face...

Darth Wicket.

Fails To Meet Expectations

They asked for this:


Got this:

("... and this was after he tried to fix the creeper face with frosting all over his finger tips - see the squares where it looks messed up?")


...then went to another bakery, which whipped this up in only 20 minutes:

See, folks? It CAN be done!


From "Wonderful" "Wonder What They Were Drinking"


They asked for this pink camouflage:


And got something that SHOULD be shot:

Pretty sure I've seen popped balloons that looked more appetizing.


And finally, here's a surprisingly clever use of photo paper:

Even so, my first thought? "Uh-oh."


Because I knew - I knew! - this was coming:


Hey, Elsa.
Let it fro.
