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? ;)

Random Weekly Roundup

Every week or so I sort through all the new submissions you guys have sent in. It's pretty fun, flipping through a random assortment of horror and hilarity all at once like that, so today I thought I'd share some of the ones from our latest batch that especially gave me the giggles:

 

Captain America Flees the Evil Laptop of Doom:

"Look out! IT'S ABOUT TO REBOOT!!"

 (Yeah, yeah, I know it's not a laptop. It's a...um...briefcase? Of doom?)

 

Call me old fashioned, but I usually like my weddings and baby showers to at least get their own cakes:

Ooh, hey, do you think after they finished playing "dirty diaper," the bride threw it over her shoulder to a waiting crowd of toddlers? (Whoever catches it will be the next one potty-traaaained!)

 

And speaking of parties, it looks like the Greens did the Time Warp at this year's "runion":

Hey, maybe they know the Browns! (You know, Doc Brown? Back to the Future? Oh, never mind.)

 

This next one isn't so much a wreck as it is my new favorite baker: Wreckporter Jen ordered a cake, and when asked what she wanted on it, she just said, "Surprise me."

This is what she got:  

SURPRISE!

 

And finally, if you've ever wondered at what point your baker needs an intervention, this is that point:

That, my friends, is a donut.

A donut with an ice-cream cone filled with solid icing crammed on top of it.

It's basically a sticky, loneliness-laced call for help. 

Better eat it quick, before it gets too depressing.

 

Thanks to Michelle B., Kayla N., Carlton H., Jen J., and Rivit for the 'screams.

I've Got Some Good News, and I've Got Some BAD News...

The good news is it's your birthday, and you get cake!

 .............

The plan was considered a success, until Dylan's parents remembered the four-year-old still hadn't learned to read.

 

Thanks to Anony M. for putting every horrible birthday ever into perspective.
