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? ;)

WE'RE DOOMED

[NOTE: In an effort to be more efficient/lazy, I may have written this post last week. I'm pretty sure you won't be able to tell, though, so forget I even mentioned it.]

 

My dear wreckies, the end is officially nigh. In fact, I think it's safe to say that the end has never been MORE nigh than it is at this very moment. It is a moment FULL OF END NIGH-NESS.

With President [insert winner's name here] in office, our country will soon be nothing but a moldering pile of Taco Bell wrappers and Snookie CDs. The seas will boil over. The sun will burn. The stars will do crazy loop deloops, but, like, in a really bad way.

Frogs will rise up from ponds everywhere and hippity-hop all over our lawns.

 

And then they'll eat our daisies.

OUR DAISIES!!

 

All birthdays will be cancelled, and replaced with "buttdays."

 

Our new national flag will be a giant flip-flop...STOMPING ON AN AMERICAN HEART.

 

And perhaps most terrifying of all: a legion of lop-sided zombie Barbie cakes will slide menacingly onward, the better to consume our very souls:

Yes, my friends, with the inevitable campaign of doom and destruction heralded by President [insert winner's name here], our only hope can now be in hunkering down with enormous cases of peanut butter while we await the apocalyptic....uh...hang on...

Did someone seriously make a WEDDING CAKE out of WHOOPIE PIES??

Best. Idea. EVER.

 

 Ok, never mind that other stuff. We're good.

 

Thanks to  Susan F., Debbie A., Anony M., Alexandra, & Gregory H. for putting things back in their proper perspective. Peace, love, and whoopie pies, baby. Awww yeeeaah.

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.
