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? ;)

More Monkey Business

 

I don't know where the monkey-themed CCC trend started, but we here at Cake Wrecks think it's just bananas.

 

I'm having a hard time figuring how those cupcake apendages are supposed to be legs. I mean, even the monkey looks confused. Not good.
Good grief! Well, you know those Hollywood monkey CCCs: Their faces just get more plastic every year.
This next little critter looks less like a monkey and more like my high school French teacher*:

 

"Monsieur Maurice! You and your poo belly are under arrest! Drop the mustard bottle and hand over the garden hose, s'il vous plait!"
*My high school French teacher was a woman. The resemblance is uncanny. I'm not kidding.
You know what they say: "If it's shaped like a star in a wheelbarrow, then it's just begging for a face and a tail."
I'm pretty sure that's an Irish proverb, Ashlee M., Malisa I., and Jenn & Tim M. Now, quit monkeying around and get back to work!

Rabbit Food

[singing] "The bunny, the bunny, ohhh I ate the bunny."

Or, uh, whatever these things are.

Holographic rabbit ears? I bet those get a lousy reception.


Do not look directly into the eye of Mara!

Now, picture a cartoon mouse flattened by a piano.

Or, just look at this:

Eek!

You know, I'm starting to think maybe shredded coconut isn't the bunny cake cure-all:


Somewhere in that haystack may be the rest of him.


What the...??
Are these on food court trays?

And yeah, they look like alien gophers wearing plastic rabbit ears. There's that, too.


[rapid blinking]

Uh...

I'm sorry; those "ears" have robbed me of the capacity for coherent thought. And the pink yo-yo thingies jammed into the jawline? I can't...I mean, I don't...That is to say, I have never...er. Huh.

[puffing out cheeks]

[scratching head]

[tapping fingers]

Right. Well, I'm going to wander off aimlessly now, in the hopes of finding something to restore my sanity. The rest of you feel free to talk amongst yourselves.


Ashley M., Sarah F., Anne B., K&J, Gail R., Laura S., & Brooke I., I don't want to tell you a joke that is funny I just want a plate and a fork and a bunny.

Update from John: Apparently, what we took to be food court trays are actually meat trays which I think we all can agree, is sooo much better. And it raises a question: is it even cake or is it some lovely ground chuck slathered in mashed potatoes? The world may never know! (Unless, of course, somebody bought one and ate it. Then we'd probably know. Ya know?)
