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? ;)

When They Go High, You Go Logo

I love a good hand-piped logo wreck. It says, "YAY TEAM!" without all that pretentious "artistry" and/or "talent."

For instance, bakers, you know that maybe three people in the world could recreate this logo in buttercream:

You KNOW it.

 

But that doesn't mean you shouldn't try!

Really captures the majesty.

 

Or how 'bout the Patriots logo? Impossible?

Of COURSE it's impossible!
It's not like you don't know you can't do it!

[pauses to re-read last sentence slowly, finally nods]

Ahem.

Do it anyway!

I always say apostrophes are for sissies.

 

I feel this is an EXCELLENT time to remind you all of one of my personal favorites:

 

COUNT THE TOES.

 

And finally, anyone have a wing and a prayer?

 

No?

Alllllllrighty, then.

 

Thanks to Alan W., Michele L., Mandy, & Sam T. for getting the Greatest American Hero theme song stuck in my head. Again. (Just me?)

COO-KIES!!

It's Cookie Monster Day!!

That's right, bakers. You know what to do.

No...

 

No...

 

OH COME ON. The plastic one is right there!

 

[deep breath] Look. You can do this. Just bring the eyes closer together...

TOO CLOSE.

 

STILL TOO CLOSE.

 

Tell you what, bakers, let's try some niiiice, easy cupcakes.

...never mind.

 

[head on keyboard] ::sigh::

 

[head in lap] ::bigger sigh::

 

[from under desk] I'm good down here, thanks.

 

Thanks to Pamela F., Michelle B., Rachelle H., Jason B., Seanna L., Kyle K., Zoe R., Anony M., Karen B., Anna C., & Uffda, who'd like to remind us all of a happier time:

Ah, those were the days.
