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? ;)

This Tuesday Isn't Fat, It's Fluffy

Egads, you guys, I almost forgot today was Mardi Gras!!

Thank goodness the wreckerators out there have given us so many helpful reminders. You know, like all the beads:

("The better to hide our wrecks with, my dear!")


...and the toxic mold rings:

(Listen closely, and you can actually hear the dough screaming.)


Not to mention the plethora of choking hazards:


...the terrifying non-sequiturs:

(Give it up, Lady Cassandra - we know it's you!)


...and, of course, the dessert Mardi Gras is most famous for:

The colossal caramel apple pie.

Topped with a tiny plastic Baby Jesus.

Giving you the finger.


And, hey, if that doesn't say "Happy Marti Gras !", then this cake does:

So there.


Many Mardi Gras thanks to Naomi S., Janet, Mike R., Laurie E., Debbi P., & Andrew G., who get ALL the beads - once they flash me their... pearly whites.

And by "pearly whites"I mean "boobs." You, too, fellas!

I Can Call You Boobie...

It's Celebrate Your Name Week, my friends, so I have an extra special gift for a bunch of you with common American names: the gift... of new nicknames.


Bobbie knows what I'm talking 'bout, don't ya, hon'?

Yes, yes she does.


So let's get to it - and fingers crossed you find your name in here!

This one works for Bob *or* Deb. A twofer!


Tiffany, your new nickname just entails everyone using finger quotes when addressing you:

You're "welcome."


This one was almost my favorite - but then I found this:

And while you're at it, bring me some Twix bars. Chop chop!


And you thought three letter names would be safe.


I think this one must be intentional, but it still made me bust a gut:

"I have been, and shall always be, your... wait, who are you?"


Thanks to Ashleigh P., Catherine S., Chelsea P., Chelsea N., Allegra S., Anna, Katie, Dawn L., Hannah W., & Jennifer H. for the great name maim game.

Didn't see your name butchered here? Well, never fear, dear Wreckies; I have so many name wrecks to share I had to split them into two posts - so watch for the second batch later this week!
