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? ;)

Training Day

"Oy! Sherry! Get over here and teach this new-hire how to make roses."

"But, boss, you told us yesterday we could only make Halloween cakes this month."

"So?"

[sigh] "Ok. We'll figure something out."


"Oh, and when you're done, have Newbie make a batch with all those skull photo transfers. We need to use those up."

"What skull photo transfers?"

"These ones. They'll go great with the skull glitter rings we just got in."

"But those aren't...[sigh]...Ok, boss. Whatever you say."




Look out, Nikki A. & Meredith, it's a TiRCk!!!

All Hallow's Wrecks

Henchpersons, it's the final week before Halloween. And you know what that means, right? [rubbing hands together gleefully] Ooooh, yes. It means: this week is gonna be GOOD.

Sorry, did I say "good?" 'Cuz I meant "spooy."


You're gonna love it, though. I mean, c'mon, when else will your cupcakes literally give you the finger?


Or will Oompa Loompa glitter skeletons tap-dance across your sheet cake?


Or - OR - will you find an obscure Addams' Family reference scrawled on a huge pile of airbrushed icing?

Nice save. Really.

And sometimes, if you're lucky, you'll even see stuff like this:

"Don't scream 'til you see the egg-whites of their eyes, boys."

And so, my dear Wreckies, enjoy this week. Embrace it. Savor it.

Oh, and:

Hey Samantha R., Stephanie M., Cindy S., Melaina V., Emily D., & Whitney N., true story: my folks used to call me Cousin Itt behind my back.

I'm guessing 'cuz that's where the resemblance was strongest.

UPDATE: The "Cousin Itt" Epcot threat level is currently at: ORANGE. Do not panic; this is only a drill. (Plus I fixed my typo.) Carry on.
