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? ;)

The Hunt Is Over



And you're to blame!


Wreckers, you give love



How did this start?


They look all the same!



You give love
a bad name
(bad name!)


You give love...



Thanks to Anony M., Elizabeth, K.J., Jodee, Christy R., Anony M., Shari A., & Amy O., who really needs to explain those last wedding toppers to me. Are the two bucks supposed to be Robert & Stevie? And if so, why are they next to a hunter with a shotgun? ("Aw, look, your wedding avatars are about to be killed! SO SWEET.")

Or maybe the hunter and the tree are getting married, after he shoots a couple of deer? (The hunter, I mean, not the tree.) But why would a tree hugger even WANT to shoot deer? Did they just run out of bride-dragging-the-groom toppers? PLEASE HELP I AM SO CONFUSED.

Parent Appreciation Day

Think you have a shot at "most embarrassing parents?"

Not anymore.

The fact that "period" is spelled wrong pales in comparison with, you know, everything else.


Still, it could've been worse. Lucy's parents could have put her picture on the cake:

And then served it with a side of drippy cherry cheesecake.



Then again, is that really any worse than a commemorative toilet training cake?

Guys, there is such a thing as a generic celebration cake, you know. Just sayin'.


Oh, and Mom? Dad? I love you.


Thanks for the perspective, Anony M., Victoria C., & Britany S. And also for the vocabulary lesson.
