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? ;)

New Tees!

Inspired by my Dino-Mite post, Tara Cox of Flying Penguin Artworks made me a fantastic "Cake Rex" illustration. I liked it so much that I asked her if I could share it with all of you on a t-shirt, and she graciously agreed. Check it out:

This next one is the work of Maree Adams of Work at Home Designs. Maree is a hugely talented and extremely patient individual, as she's been working with me on this illustration since well before we even began offering shirts here on Wrecks:
At one time I was thinking of making this guy the site's logo. That's still up in the air for now, but in the mean time I really wanted to share Maree's work with all of you. So, naturally, I stuck it on a shirt:

Like all shirts on Zazzle, you can get these in men's or kids' styles as well as the women's ones shown. You can also customize colors and even the graphic's size. Check out the other styles available in the Cake Wrecks Zazzle store here.

And as always, send me your shirt graphics! If I use them I'll link to your store or site here on the blog.


Buy Buy Buy

I've had some fun new shirt designs submitted from you oh-so-talented readers, and what better day to share the new arrivals than Black Friday? So c'mon, folks, before that bargain-crazed, triple-espresso high wears off: buy, buy, buy! (And if you catch yourself singing the song later today, my work here will be done.)

First up, a hilariously cute design by Jen Privitera of Kitty Gogo:

If you don't get it, then shame on you, and check out this post. Be sure to visit Jen's site above for more crazy yet cute designs, too.

Phil DeJarnett of came up with two great designs:

I think I'm going to offer the "underneat that" one on an apron as well as a shirt, if for no other reason than so I can order one. :)

Rebecca Bridge of Glitter Bubbles jewelry immortalized our most dangerous Wreck to date:

The thought of all the confused looks one would receive when wearing this shirt makes me ridiculously happy. Is that wrong?

And here's what I came up with in my "free" time:

It a Gril - Ladies shirt
Simple, classic, and also available as a baby's onesie. What more could you ask for? (Don't answer that. It was rhetorical.)

Click on any of the designs above to go to the Zazzle store. Also, FYI: all the shirts are available in both men's and women's styles: just click "select a different shirt style" on the product description page. Most of them are also available as magnets.
