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? ;)

Simply Smashing

This is a cake I posted back in 2009: 

"Because crime doesn't pay, kids."


And this one I posted in 2011:

"It's kind of a mix between 'shushing' and 'churning.'"


Well, today Deirdre M. sent me this cake:

Three wrecks of the exact same design, misspelled three different ways.



And to celebrate, I will now rehash a slightly dated meme for my own base amusements.

You're welcome.

 (Psst. Hey. You know you want to read this out loud.

Go on.  I won't judge. Much.)


Thanks to Jenn B., Mickie D., and Deirdre M.  for chursh... cursh...ah chrush...smashing crime.

And from my other blog, Epbot:


Happy Falker Satherhood!

Ashley J. had two male coworkers each expecting a child, so the office decided to get them a cake. They wanted it to say, "Happy Fatherhood Shawn and Glenn".

Instead, they got this:

Like you, I'm sure, Ashley & the gang were just dying to know what the decorator thought he or she was writing, exactly. So, they decided to go find out. Yep, that's right: They grabbed a video camera (did I mention they work at the Fox television animation studio?) and strolled down the street to pay a little visit to the bakery in question.

Here's what happened next (the best bits are in the first 2 minutes):

"It's like a word journey" - hilarious. Oh, and Ashley writes "Please forgive the Tickle-Me-Elmo laughter coming from behind the camera...that's me."

Ashley, I think it's safe to say we all forgive you. It's just too bad the manager didn't have as much of a sense of humor as you guys did; after all, I think you and Rebner were extremely pleasant about it, all things considered. :)
