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? ;)

Picture This

So Shawna A. asked her bakery to make a cake just like this one from Pink Cake Box:


To make it easier, she even brought in a print-out of this picture. And, since she wanted her cake to say "Welcome Little Monkey" instead of "Happy Birthday," she was sure to cross that bit out. That way, there could be no confusion whatsoever, right?

Riiiight.


All in favor of banning the edible photo printer for all eternity, say "Oy VEY."

I think the "veys" have it, Shawna.

Fit To Be Tied

Tied, dyed, and uglified:

Ready to be clued in?

It's supposed to be a shirt.

See, you can tell by the...uh...well, by asking the Wreckerator.

Thanks to Mary M., who blames hippies with lava lamps in the 60's.

Personally, I think it was Lucy. In the sky. With diamonds.

Anyone want to check the envelope?

(P.S. If you got that, I love you. And if you didn't, just consider this post script a red herring.)
