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? ;)

You Say Potato, I Say Potato, Your Baker Draws a Llama

This was supposed to read, "You'll Never Walk Alone"

So now it's less a promise and more... a threat?


The team is named The Bees, so they asked for a bee near first base:

Which is worse: the fact that they wrote out the instructions, or that "bee" near first base?
'Cuz I'm leaning towards the bee.


Jessica tells me she "has a thing for beards," so she asked the baker to put beards on her cookie cake.

I'm kinda with the baker on this one.


It goes great with Lauren's "Beast of Luck:"


But here's the best one: you know how it's a trend to write "You're dead to us" on goodbye cakes?

I have no idea why it's a trend, but it is.





Anyhoo, here's the very best "You're Dead To Us" cake I've ever seen:

"You're Dad To Us."

That is one stubbornly optimistic baker, you guys, and I love it.

Name That Wrong

I'm old.

I know this because my shoulder hurts right now and I want to tell absolutely everyone about it. Also, I don't like the rap music.

So when I hear of some unbearably trying-too-hard celebrity naming their kid Pirate* or Audio Science* or Banjo*, I get offended in a way that only we Americans are bored enough to get.

[*Actual celebrity kid names.]

For instance:


Are these names? Are they mistakes? The world may never know.
But by golly, we can assume the worst and get ticked off anyway.


The only thing more confusing than the words are the decorations. Are those... targets?


It must be heck figuring out which basket is hers.


Funny, he doesn't look like a "Pin." More like a "Nougat" or "Flip Phone," am I right?


Thanks to Linda O., Evy C., Kaycee G., Mary G., & Rusti B., who will all now be known as "Betty." And you can call me Al.
