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? ;)

Do The Floppy Flips

Ahh, flip-flops. The quintessential, mandatory summer footwear of summer-dwelling people who also have feet.

Look closely. You're about to forget what these look like.


Here in Florida, you'd be hard pressed to find a person NOT wearing flip-flops right now. That's because we're actually required to have a minimum of 6 pairs each, along with an annual pass to Disney World, a full keg of OJ, and a sickly pale non-tan that helps us differentiate each other from the tourists.

But, I digress.

Naturally, bakers are RIGHT ON TRACK with the floppy flip sole train:

By offering us spotted pickles.



And lei-wearing bam-hammers.


And... uh... [reaching desperately] Pikachu smears?





[evil, deadpan glare]


Wrecky minions, it is with only the greatest horrified amusement that I announce the flip-flop CCC (patooie!) has officially warped beyond all recognition. I give you...

The Tadpole Ghosts of Flops Past.

Rest in pieces, wrecky flops. Rest in pieces.

That's A Phallus - See?

"Hey, Barb, the customers are complaining your butterfly design looks too childish."

"So if you can try to make it more appealing to adults, and not just to three-year-olds, that'd be great. K? Thaaanks."


[later that day]



"Uh, Barb? WE NEED TO TALK."


Thanks to Ashlee B. for the cock-up.
