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? ;)

Keen for Quinoa

Bakers, I think you need to see this.

This, my friends, is a turkey.

 

Now, I know this comes as a shock. After all, you've been lied to all these years! But then, how could you possibly have known that turkeys actually DON'T all come in cans?

Now that's what we call a "can-doo" attitude!

 

In fact, when you think about it, it's really only natural to assume a turkey with a head injury bleeds rainbows:

 

Or that baby turkeys are cute enough to turn even hardened carnivores into raw vegans:

"Please, sir, might you consider the tofurkey this year? I hear it's lovely with a bit of quinoa."

 

Of course, some of you chose to model your turkeys on other things.

Like flamingos...

 

Or your least favorite cousin...

 

Or, from the looks of things, your last colonoscopy:

"Personally, I've taken a shine to the 'frizzy fecal' style."

 

Still, the good news is you bakers have always known exactly what a turkey sounds like:

Honestly, it's uncanny.

 

Thanks to Scott A., Kathryn S., Beth P., D.W., Dion H., Karen, & Mike B. for inspiring me to shout "gooble gooble!" at every lawn flamingo I see. That's right, neighbors, who's the "antisocial recluse" now? Huh? HUH?!

Howdy, Pilgrim?

Thanksgiving is coming, my friends, so here's a handy guide for identifying the goods in your local bakery:

 

1) Anything in a black hat is a pilgrim.

"Top o' the morning to ye!"

 

 "Hola."

 

"Buh-KAWK!"

 

2) Anything in a blue headband is a Native American.

"Could I...BE any creepier?"

 

"Yep, I guess I could."

 

"Now let's get sweatin' to those oldies, ladies!"

 

3) Everything else is a turkey.

Probably.

 

Thanks to Brittany W., Louise C., Angela B., Angelica W., Jenn, Dave B., & Samantha E., who figure that last wreck is worth at least two bucks.

 

Hey Austin!  We'll see you tonight at 7pm.  WOOHOO!!!
