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? ;)

How We Made Dad Feel Special. Or Just Uncomfortable.

Yesterday we celebrated dads everywhere.

Some of us better than others.

"You're more like number 12."

"And some day I may even take the quotes off."

FUN FACT: Did you know that Wreckerators are legally prohibited from spelling "you're" correctly on Father's Day cakes? It's true:

LESS FUN FACT: I think I just found the poster cake for Awkward Family Cakes.

Or am I the only one who thinks it's weird to tell your dad he's a great catch?



Or that he's a "hole in one?"


Or...well, this?

"Your the Best in US"

[staring wide-eyed]

Um.

[clearing throat] Alrighty, then. Moving on...

Are you keeping tabs on the misspellings? 'Cuz here comes "your" number five!

"Because you're sunny half the time and cold and dark the rest."

See? That analogy TOTALLY works.

Oh, wait! I found the missing "Dad"! See, it obviously swapped places with "Day":

That, or grandpa is a Smurf with a big red nose. Or a Na'vi with a big red nose. Or an Easter Island head. With a big red nose.
Or...well, you get the idea.

Lauren R., Stacy L., Heather G., Nicole J., Ginger P., Chris & Christi E., admit it: "Alkie Smurf" would have been *hilarious.*

TOUR REMINDER: Hey, Arizona, John and I will be at the Tempe Changing Hands bookstore tonight at 7pm! Bring a cupcake version of your favorite Wreck for a chance at fabulous prizes, fame, glory, etc. (Be sure to label the plate with your name.) We'll have a fun slide show, free cake, prizes, and lots of laughs - so BE THERE. Wrecky World Domination awaits!

Let's Just Stick with "Happy Falker Satherhood"

We here at Cake Wrecks would like to wish all of you dads out there the happiest of Father's Days this weekend.

Just as soon as we figure out how.

Hm. Not quite right...


No...

"Phathes"? Seriously?

Definitely no...

Aaaand we give up.

Of course, getting the inscription right is only half the battle:

This design works best if dad has never heard of "sarcasm."

(Also, you've got to love the not-so-subtle "Making of Me" "rug" there. Way to acknowledge the paternal contribution, Wreckerators!)



Riiiiight.

Now, don't get me wrong: I'm sure there would be buzzing around that load of...hive. It just wouldn't necessarily be by bees.

[brightening] Hey, you think those are vuvuzela horns?

Now, kids, when ordering your Daddy a cake, try to emphasize his positive qualities.


You know, like having a butt the size of Texas.

(Hey, at least they didn't call him "Super Terrific Dad." Heh.)


Carrie G., Erin H., Brady M., Ro W., Vangie B., Elisabeth K., & Katie, you've made your dads proud today. Unless, of course, you've never managed to measure up to his expectations, and he just doesn't understand you. In that case, this probably hasn't made much difference either way.
