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? ;)

TMI Celebrations

While I agree that no celebration is complete without cake, I also think some celebrations should maybe be a bit more private than others:

Please tell me you invited the in-laws.


Ahhh, that sweet, sweet moment when your wife throws you a surprise Vasectomy Recovery party:

I hear if you buy two they throw in the bag of frozen peas for free.



I looked it up. It really is a thing. So I have two questions: who are you getting this cake for, and how will that not end badly for you?


Of course, nothing will lead to a round of denials as much as this:

C'mon. Does anyone ever admit to watching this show?


But for the ultimate "I-just-learned-something-I-never-wanted-to-know-about-you" dessert, we have this:

So many puns, so few of them safe for work...


Let's all give a hand to Heather M., Alison K., Laura W., Helen J., & Nicole A. for today's wrecks.


Funny story about that last cake: it was commissioned by none other than Mr. Bill Murray during the filming of Moonrise Kingdom as a joke for one of the guys working on set. (Cameron was turning 21.) Nicole worked craft services for the movie, and was responsible for fetching the cake from a local bakery. She tells me Murray also insisted on taking Cameron out for his first drink, and was fantastic to the whole crew, and I am insanely jealous of all of them. :)


Friday Favs

Welp, it's Friday. Time for Jen's Favorite Quick Laughs of the Week!

(See, if I capitalize it that makes it all official-like.)


I call this one, "'Cuz McDonalds is hiring."



I don't want to eat them; I just want to order a couple. Loudly.


"Steamrolled Minnie"

Anyone else having Roger Rabbit flashbacks?

(On the plus side, now she qualifies for flat-rate shipping!)



"When A Farewell Turns Curiously Personal"

Wreck or no? Me, I could go either way.


Have you heard? "Death by Chocolate" is so last week.

The newest trend in desserts is "Death by Giant Ice Cream Cone."

Now we just need a man biscuit topped with a chocolate piano.


"Mischief Managed"

Best. Wedding display. Ever.

Thanks to Jessica P., Sam D., Julie R., Karen B., Letty B., & Jennifer C. for putting the backwards "YA!" in "Friday."
