We've officially come full circle, folks: people are now making Wrecks on purpose, either in honor of the site or just to recreate their favorite specimens. Check it out:
This wrecktastic design was the brainchild of readers Alissa, Elisa, Phillip, Gail & Tara. Hey guys, shouldn't the baby be riding one of those carrots?
Msyendor was more musically inspired: here's a song to the tune of "Working on the Railroad":
"I've been looking at some Cake Wrecks,
And laugh until I cry.
I've been looking at some Cake Wrecks,
So glad one isn't mine!
Visions of sweet disasters
See 'Toe Jams' 8/11/08.
Missed spellings gaily plastered
Ferule to, uh, pree, she aaaate!
Baby butts upturned,
'Wachungas' -what a word,
Effigies invite you: Slash away!
Done in tasty butter cream,
I'm putting in an order today!"
Readers Aimee C., Amy G., Jessica S., & Amanda K. threw a Cake Wreck Decorating Party:A "patchwork quilt" of "wreckish elements". (If you say so, guys...)
Here's an official Wreck, since it was professionally made for an Army guy. Submitter Lena had the decorator replace the original inscription with the most famous of Wreck mistakes, and then swapped Eve out for a toy tank. (Which is especially funny when you realize the blue is supposed to be the night sky - it's a Hover Tank!) Believe it or not, though, the space poos are part of the original design - proving that it wasn't that far off from wreckiness to begin with.
And lastly, the quintessential Cake Wrecks homage:
Teresa B. and gang, you rock. Totally.
