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? ;)

Sunday Sweets For "Tell A Joke" Day

Hey, you guys wanna hear a good joke?
Well, sorry.
But here are some terrible ones, illustrated by AWESOME cakes, in honor of Tell A Joke Day.
(And no knock-knock jokes, I promise. Orange you glad?)


Q. What did the duck say when she bought lipstick?

A. "Put it on my bill!"

(By Antonella Di Mario Torte & Design)


A woman gets on a bus with her baby. The driver says, ''Wow, that's the ugliest baby I've ever seen!'' The woman sits down, fuming, and tells the lady beside her, ''The driver just said something terrible to me!'' The lady replies, ''You go up there and tell him off, then. Go on, I'll hold your monkey for you."

(By Pamela Kabzinski)

(P.S. This one made John laugh until he cried. Just in case you were wondering what his sense of humor is like...)


"Excuse me, which aisle has the Nutella?"

"Sir, this is a library!"

"Sorry. [whispering] Which aisle has the Nutella?"

(By Juicy Desserts)


I went to the zoo the other day, but there was only one dog in it.
It was a Shih Tzu.

(By Highland Bakery)

(This may not actually be a Shih Tzu. Sorry. In my defense, I'm more of a cat person. Also, this is John's OTHER favorite joke today.)


"Doctor, I can't stop singing 'What's new, pussycat'!"
"Ah, sounds like Tom Jones syndrome."
"Really? Is that common?"
"Well, it's not unusual."

(By Pink Cake Box)


Two fish are in a tank. One says to the other, ''Hey, how do you drive this thing?''

(Baker Unknown. Anyone recognize it?)


Two cherries are sitting on a pie in the oven.
One says to the other, "Is it just me, or is it hot in here?"
The other says, "AAAUGH! A TALKING CHERRY!"

(By Lynlee's, tutorial at the link)

(I was tempted to change that to "DEMON CHERRY!!" but I'm not sure how many Emperor's New Groove fans are out there.)


Did you hear Ivy started dating zombies?
Apparently she prefers guys who want her for her brains.

(By Sideserf Cake Studio)


Q: Why couldn't the pirates play cards?
A: Because they were standing on the deck!

(By Alessandra Frisoni)


Did you hear about the big food fight? First the peas snapped at the celery, which stalked off. Then the potatoes made eyes at the onions, which made everyone cry. And though the carrots rooted for peace, in the end they all decided to just sit n' stew.

Sunday Sweets For Book Lovers Day

It's Book Lovers Day, my friends, and I know *JUST* how to celebrate!
Assuming you can convince your guests these are actually edible, of course:

(By Cloud 9 Cakes)


Terry Pratchett fans, prepare to have your jaws drop:

(By DeviantArt member Barracude-Bruce's wife)

Or maybe you'll just make stunned sputtering noises, like I did. :) Look at all that detail! Disc World has truly never looked sweeter.


This stunning Les Mis cake has little barricades at the four corners:

(By Cup A Dee Cakes)

Show of hands: who else is humming the soundtrack now?


A fun library design:

(By Biscuiteers of London)


And another you'll never believe is cake, made for a Sylvia Plath fan:

(By Sweet Ruby Cakes)

I'm trying to imagine the time this must have taken - all those little keys! - and my mind is positively boggling.


Here's a classic:

(By Über Angel Cakes)

That Shakespeare portrait is hand-painted, and I'm loving the aged leather finish.


Or how about a more modern favorite?

(By Astonishing Cakes, featured here)

I admit it: I haven't read The Fault In Our Stars, because I'm allergic to sad. I know enough to appreciate the cigarettes and some of the sayings, though, and this is truly Sweet.


Can't have a book lover's post without a little Potter magic, of course:

(By TIER Luxury Cakes, who appear to be permanently closed)

I'm delighted that these titles are actually books within books. Very meta.


Another classic, done to perfection:

(By Celebrate With Cake)

I think I speak for us all when I say: thank goodness they went with a rose instead of a horse head. :D


And finally, of all the incredible Sweets today, this is the one I had the most trouble believing was actually cake:

(By Ron Ben-Israel Cakes)

Because wow. Such a brilliant touch with the butterflies, too; they add so much life and color!


Happy Sunday, everyone! Now, let's all go curl up with a good book.
