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? ;)

A Little Late to the Meme

Hello, Wreckies.

Look at this cake you want:


Now look at the cake you got:


Now look at me:


Now look at this other cake:


Now back to me:


Look down.

Now back up.

This is a horse:


Now I'm pink.


Now look at the Jonas Brothers:


I'm a pirate.



Valerie, Olyvia S., Stacey, Rebecca M., Kayleen W., Tamara H., Shannon S., & Mandy R., I think these jokes may be little stale. Eh, I guess that's what you get with
old spice cakes.

Zing!!

Update: The Jesus Raptor painting was originally done by Monty Propps. The original painting of Jesus with the lamb was done by Del Parson.

Off Color Remarks

For many years now - in fact, for just about as long as I can remember - I've been Polish. Sure, I'm also Irish, German, Iroquois, Russian, and a shameful bit of Swedish that we don't talk about, but mostly I'm Polish. You can tell by my mom's maiden name which has 17 consonants and 2 vowels. But that's not the point.

The point is, my Polish brothers and sisters, that we of the Land of Pole have been the butt of jokes for many a year. And frankly, some cake decorators aren't helping the situation.

Allow me to illustrate.


This is the Polish flag:

Let's take a moment to admire it whilst humming the Polish National Anthem, shall we?

HMMM HMMMMM HM HM HMM HUUUUM
HM HM HMMMM HUMMM!

HMM HM HM HM HM HM

HUMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM!!!

And now, allow me to present the Polish flag cake that brings shame on the land of my second great great uncle on my cousin's sister's husband's side:


What, the Wreckorator thought we wouldn't notice?!? Huh?

I mean, c'mon, our flag is way wider than that.

Thanks, Cristen. Oh, and for the rest of you: keep in mind that the two comment moderators here are me and my sister Anne-Marie, and we share slightly warped Polish/Irish mean streaks. So comment...carefully.

Best comment so far: ugh, I wouldn't touch that with a 6 foot Pole (wait, how tall are you?)-tjbmurph
