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? ;)

Forget Your "P"s and "Q"s...

...some of us need to start minding our "L"s and "F"s.

[Warning: Parents, clear the room of innocents!]

One cake, two drastically different meanings:


Yes, yes, I know it's an "L." Well, kind of an L/F hybrid, really. In fact, you might say if L and F got together, had a few drinks...

No?

No.

Ok, then.

Good juck?

Eh. I got nuthin'.

This, on the other hand, is giving me a little too much:



Go ahead, Wreckerator. Tell us how that's an "L."

Or better yet, why don't we all go over the importance of keeping certain letters separated?

I bet that's one office send-off Janet will never forget.

And btw, I love that the Wreckerator threw in the towel at the "J."

Like, s/he was all, "Let's see, I nailed that capital L, but man, I dunno if I can pull off the J! Huh.

Ah, screw it."

Thanks to Caitlin B., Christopher P., Chrissy G., Robin S., who agree that all performance reviews should be written in frosting.

Wreck, Reuse, Recycle

Edible photos are becoming increasingly popular with bakeries these days, but we should keep in mind that this is not a cheap technology. In fact, it's quite expensive, what with the special printers, edible ink, and, of course, the moon dust and mithril-coated unicorn hair they use for paper.

Hm?

Wait. You're saying they *don't* use moon dust and mythril-coated unicorn hair for paper?

Well, then, how do you explain...THIS?


They reused the printer's test sheet.

Seriously.

You know, Denis C., if the sheets cost this much, maybe they should consider just going back to Spiderman Head.

BWAHAHAHAAA!!

Just kidding.

But seriously, stop with the edible printing already.
