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? ;)

Great Expectations

There are plenty of ways to tell your friends, family, and significant others that you're pregnant.

I wouldn't recommend any of these.

OMG - LOL!

Um...

U R j/k, right?

Yeah, when breaking news this big you should really spell it out:

(You're doing *what* to a baby?)


Especially for your better half:

"Pregant?"

Sounds serious.

And on her birthday, too.


This one gets a little saucy:


Say it with me now:

"It's in there."


(Ah, Retro commercial slogans for the win!)

Still, when someone has been trying for so long to achieve what comes naturally to others, it's only right that we celebrate such a monumental accomplishment:

See, they managed to squeeze the "m" in.

Thanks to Wreckporters Margo K., Roberto S., Margaret J., Cheri P., & Kristen B., who are all expecting.

Hm?

Oh! A large piece of cake, I mean. Yeah, they're expecting cake.

Sorry about that pregnant pause there; I was distracted by my own little bun in the oven.

It's cinnamon. It smells delicious.

Name That Wreck!

I grew up with friends named Shannyn, Jesica, Jaison, and Aiyrunn, so I'm used to spelling names all "modern" and "stupid-like." Still, this is getting ridiculous.

 

Maybe it's Russian?

 

Well, at least they spelled "Birlhday" right.

 

 

We really hope Uncle Boon likes his cake; it was a joint effort.

When you're weeding out the bad cakes, shouldn't this one be high on the list?
(And does anyone else have the munchies?)

 

 

Ah, finally, a cake that describes the cake's consistency AND the birthday girl's skin tone:

 

 

Still, it kinda pales in comparison with other cakes, doesn't it?

 

 

Do you think this cake contains nuts?

 

 

Because it certainly has the berries. (HEY-O!)

 

 

Meghan, Michelle R., Matt A., and John C., I'm glad you all have pretty standard names, since now I have to have our intern, Gaffudga Selph (she's French), send out an apology for my insulting all of the Aiyrunns out there.
