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? ;)

If you're wondering what a life preserver has to do with breastfeeding, then rest assured that so are the rest of us. Personally I like to think that the Wreckerator was in the process of drawing one huge bazooga when s/he was stopped by some killjoy middle manager.

Also note that breastfed babies are "reading for anything." Naturally, I think you'll agree with me when I say this theory simply must be tested. So, the next time you see a mom breastfeeding, try to see if her kid is also reading. (You know, like this.) Then, once you've recovered from the police tasing and posted bail, be sure to report your findings back to us, k?

Anony M., I'll let you explain today's title. ;)

Freud Would Be Proud

If it's the thought that counts, then some of these bakers may need a cold shower.

How are you with word searches, Rose A.?

(Copycat Wreckplicas to hit bridal showers everywhere in 3...2...1...)

For this next one the birthday girl was turning 26, so Esther S. ordered a cake that said "The Big Two-Six". Instead they got...

'Course, the best part is that the decorator felt a clown was the most appropriate decoration.

This next one is more of a stretch if you're looking for something suggestive:

...but the contrast between "Welcome Home" and "Well, come home" is too good to pass up.

And finally, the piece de resistance:

Oh yes, they did.

Mai An, you're right: that is one epic first-year anniversary cake. Wowza.
