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? ;)

Geek Life, Cake Style

A few times a year John and I go to commune with Our People at local sci-fi and comic conventions. This weekend is one of the big ones here in Orlando, so we've been feverishly finishing up a new costume to wear - because yes, we're THOSE kinds of geeks.

Of course you're just here for cake pictures, though... so here's a cakey hint at what our costume's going to be:

It reminds me of the babe. And Christmas tinsel.

 

And since I've got geekdom on the brain, here's a Missed Mark for you Doctor Who fans:

OoooOOoooo

 

AAAAIIEEEEEEEEE!

 

And one for Batman:

 

This must be after Superman beat him up.

 

Sorry to break it to you, Avengers fans, but it turns out Thor is a real heel:

You are not worthy to lift his... HAMMERTOE.

But hey, at least he's got sole.

(I think the baker did it just for kicks. It's a shoe-in for "weirdest cupcake," don't you think?)

 

For you classic comic fans, here's Batman giving Robin the wedgie of the century:

"Sweet spandex-strangling sausages, Batman, that stings!"

 

And let us never forget:

I have been, and shall always be, mortally offended by this cake. [glare]

 

But to end on a happy note, allow me to present wrecky minion Melissa P.'s daughter, along with the birthday cake she specifically requested:

Princess Hulk.

Now THAT is a Hulk "smash" cake, y'all. AND I APPROVE.

 

Thanks to Tiffani W., Joe H., De C., Sarah B., Leah S., Wendy D., & Melissa P. for raising The Next Generation just right. And hey, see some of you at MegaCon this weekend!

All Hands On Wreck: Pirate Ship Wedding Cake A Sight For Sore "Ayes"

Today's bride had an interesting request for her wedding: she wanted a pirate ship for the cake.

The baker was totally onboard, though, [snerk] and even sent over this inspiration picture so the bride would know what to expect on her Big Day.

You're seeing it now, right? All white, roses... I'll be darned if this isn't pretty elegant!

 

Ahh, but trim the sails and lash the rigging, ye scurvy dawgs, 'cuz here comes the actual wedding cake our anonymous bride got instead:

OH SHIP

Now that's a cake for private tears.

(Privateers? Eh? EH?)

You know, I could almost forgive the general fold-out-sofa-bed-on-blue-shag-carpet vibe going on here, but I cannot - CANNOT - get past those hysterical little "sails." Seriously. The longer you look at them, the funnier it gets. Like a hippo using a moist towelette square to preserve her modesty.

And that mental image you're having right now? Still not as funny as those sails.

 

Thanks to my anonymous bride minion, who I'm pretty sure is why the rum is gone. But hey, who could blame her?
