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? ;)

Ermergerd Tirgers!!

It's International Cat Day, so let's celebrate John's favorite animal EVER:

TIEGERS!!

 

Wait, no, I mean:

TIRGERS!!

(ERMERGHERD!)

 

You know, the things that can sit(?) on their own heads?

("This feels grrrrrREAT!")

 

And have three jaws, tentacles, and 'uge, pointy teeth?

IT'S A TIGER!

(Helpful label is helpful.)

 

So happy Cat Day, everyone, and remember:

o.0

 

Thanks to Brandi H., Kate S., Heather A., Taylor G., & Tiffany T. for keeping it catty.

MASS HYSTERIA

Based on the wrecks I see each day, I'm starting to think most decorators are completely incapable of making a cake that looks like an animal. Any animal. In fact, I'm not entirely sure any of them have ever actually seen an animal. So as a public service, let's do a little review:

 

This... is a duck.

 

This... is not a duck.

[tilting head]

Nope.  Not a duck.

 

This is a baby porcupine:

 I'm terrified, yet I would very much like to nuzzle him.

 

This is a baby Darth Maul:

I'm terrified, yet I would very much like to eat his face.


This is a dog:

 You can tell because it looks a lot like a dog.

 

This... is a lemon... poodle...

OF DOOM!!!

(It's a new breed.)

 

These are swans:

They're totally necking.

(Hey, Jen! I made a pun!)

 

These are the fabled Golden Anteaters of Madagascar:

I like to think they just finished slurping a spaghetti noodle.

 

 And finally, this is an elephant:

"Talk about your trunk space, check this action out!"

 

And this is the crumple-horned snorkack:

"Fabulous, Harry, I love the crumples."

 

Thanks to Sarah A., Vanessa D., Carissa, Terri C., and Jared S., who know it's not easy making an Aladdin/Harry Potter mashup joke, but that's just the kind of dedication we have here at CW.
