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? ;)

This baker, that's who:



Not the cake we deserve:


... but the cake we need:

I needed that.


And now, your moment of Jen:

Whoever writes the best caption in the comments wins a signed copy of Cake Wrecks. (And hey, maybe I'll even be the one who signs it. [eyebrow waggle])

Annnnd... GO.
