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? ;)

Teaming With Wreckage

The only thing I know about sports is that hitting the man in black over the head with a rock is NOT very sportsmanlike. Still, even *I* can see something's off with these sports team cakes.


I mean, c'mon, who takes a lovely sunburned R.O.U.S. like this:




...and turns it into Disney's Mushu, twisted up like a pretzel?


P.S. For you non-Disney folk, this is Mushu:

This next one is much better, though:

Bwahahaha!!

Yes, I lied. Get used to disappointment.

How about a simple star?


Think it'll work?

Correct answer: "It would take a miracle."

At this point it's just morbid curiosity keeping you going, isn't it? [nodding] Yeah. I'm right there with ya.


[blinking] Hoo boy. Anyone else have a bad feeling about this?

Oh. Well, I guess it could be worse..

It's worse, it's worse!

Hey, you know those videos online where you see the freight train headed for the tanker truck full of gasoline, and part of you is cringing and thinking what a horrible tragedy is about to occur, and the other part is all, "Oh man, this is gonna be GOOD!"

Well, allow me to introduce a tanker truck full of gasoline:



Now, heeeere comes the freight traaaaaiiiin!! (Choo choo!)

KERBLOOOIEEE!!!

What's the Big Deal?

 

OMG, it's Black Friday! And you know what that means, right?!?

Leftovers?

 

Well, yes. But more importantly - leftovers that are ON SALE!!!!!!


That's right, today everything is on sale! EVERYTHING MUST GO!! So let no dilly-dallying grandma with a slow sprint and a bum hip get between you and the DEAL OF A LIFETIME.

 

Of course, *I* finished my shopping weeks ago by shopping online. I got some great deals, too! Like this Nintendo Wii:

 

I'm sure that dent will buff right out.

 

Yep, the refurbished AS-IS models are always on clearance:

 

They even threw in the deluxe 3-inch controller cables for free!

 

I also saved a ton of money by shopping directly from vendors on the street:

 

Who knew "Louise Vitton" could be so affordable?

 

I even found a cozy little warehouse down by the docks just brimming with name brand electronics:

 

I scored this limited edition "2009" iPod for a song. So portable!

 

 

And I got something just for me: a brand new smart phone!

 

Once I erase all the demo information on this guy "Jeff," I'll be good to go!

 

 

Of course, if you're not as prepared as I am, you could brave the crowds and head out for some full-contact shopping today. But remember: stay respectful and relaxed! After all, there are enough deals to go 'round for everyo...

Move it, lady! I saw that Dora doll first!!

 

 

I'm serious, woman. Hand over "Birthday BBQ Dora" or soy es punches en la grande gorditas!

 

 

Ahem.

Or, you could visit any book retailer's website and order a bunch of Cake Wrecks hardcover, 75%-new-content gift books and 2011 calendars - available in two convenient sizes - and finish all your shopping in one fell swoop. Voila! Shopping done.

 

 

Hey, I'm just here to help, Derek L., Denise T., Anna, Carin P., Luci B., and Amanda L. (You're welcome.)
