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? ;)

Ok, fine - I guess you could also do this:



Putting aside the fact that I'm oddly reminded of a Holiday Inn bedspread, I have to say I'm most curious about that oh-so-unique texture. What do you think the baker used? Bath sponge? Plastic bag? Hair brush?


Thanks to Ashley W., a "friend" of the happy couple who assures me the answer was still "yes." Dude. THAT GIRL IS A KEEPER.



Everybody sing!

Note from Jen: So far you guys have let me joke about self-help groups, glaucoma, and baby bags with no air holes, but I'm betting THIS - the ages-old cat vs dog debate - is the uncrossable line. LET'S ALL TUNE IN TO THE COMMENTS TO FIND OUT. :D
