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? ;)

Old Glory Daze

Yesterday we here in America remembered our fallen heroes.

Today, we remember...the American Flag.

 

O-oh, say can you SEEEE? BYYY the bakery light?
How so soundly they failed... to give our flag any meaning:

Those brown stripes and blob "stars" ARE a scurr-i-lous sight!

And the RED parts they botched... are so def'nitely leaning:

And what's that O-VER THEEEERE?!

[cymbal crash!!]

 

Did the BAKER NOT CARE?

[slide whistle!]

 

A goof, what a sight - it's more THAN I can bear.

(Yes. Really.)

 

No WAY does thi-is new-fangled airbru-ush yet blaa-aaaave!

[You know, "to blave?" It means "to bluff."]

[Now, someone fetch me an MLT!]

[Ahem]

 

For the BAND of the THREEEEEE (red stripes)...

And the hoooome...of theeeee....WAAAAAAAVE!

(Before you ask: all of today's wrecks were sold right here in the good ol' US of A, on or around American holidays. I also have LOTS more where these came from. [proffering tissue] Tissue, teachers?)

 

Thanks to ToniAnn B., Trace L., Stephanie P., Sarah C., Kelly S., Sharon E., Lori A., Lin Q., & Daniel K. for their flagging enthusiasm.

Tinkerbells, Tinkerbells


Tink wrecks every day!


Oh what puns there are to write


When a fairy looks this way:

Oy vay!


Tinkerbells, hope this sells,


Clap your hands and pray


Baking skill and caring will


Be back again some day!

 

 

Thanks to Becky H., Michael C., Michelle S., and Kelly B. for the jingle.
