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? ;)

Graduate! Celebrate! "Decorate!"

If you're still planning a party for the graduate in your life, then these bakeries would like you to know that they are ready and willing to provide a whole host of graduation-appropriate cake designs...

On Styrofoam.

Sure, it tends to stick in the molars a bit, but it's extremely low in fat.

NOTE TO BAKERS: Icing tends to slide off of Styrofoam when displayed at an angle.

NOTE TO CUSTOMERS: Regard all cakes stored flat with extreme suspicion from now on.

 

If for some reason you feel compelled to have a photo of your grad on the cake, then this bakery obliges with either a traditional, "boring," photo, or the hip new "green-out silhouette" option:

Also great for grads in the Witness Protection Program!

 

And for those customers who may become confused, thinking they have to purchase a cake with someone else's photo on it, this bakery provides a helpful clarification:

Congrats! You spelled "your" wrong!

 

But suppose your grad is spiritually inclined? How do you tastefully incorporate his or her religious views into a graduation cake? Well, this bakery shows us how...

...not to do it.

 

And lastly, this bakery wants you to send your graduate a really heartfelt message.

Specifically: "Your face looks like a butt."

Oh, and "your cap is ridiculous, with its teensy little robot arm."

Do the Math

There are 10 kinds of people in the world:

Those who understand binary...

...and those who think this is right:

(How do you pronounce that? Thirty fird? Thirty onerd?)

 

You know, I bet we could all use a little math review.

Don't worry, I'll start with an easy one:

Find X:

FOUND IT.

 

See? That wasn't hard. Let's try another!

 

What do you get when you add 2 and 5 together?

CORRECT!

 

Now, if A = butterfly

and B also = butterfly

then...

someone's getting fired.

 

It's all coming back to you, isn't it?

Here's a harder one:

Q: What's the Commutative Property of Addition?

A: If all you're doing is adding stuff, you can add it in any order.

 

Name a negative number.

Ah, good choice.

 

Word problem time!

If a train leaves Cleveland traveling at 60mph, and it looks like this:

How many hours would you have to run in the opposite direction to avoid certain doom?

 

And finally:

Can you convert the following into decimal?

Because someone really missed the point.

 

We did it!

I don't know about you guys, but I feel smarter already.
