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? ;)

I think Mandy said this was a sports logo of some sort:

Which the bakery in question did a fantastic job recreating in CCC form:



[derisively] Ahahahahahah!


[snorting hiccup-turned-choke]

[coughing fit]
Ack ack ack!

[sound of water glugging]


[setting glass down] Ahem. Wow, who knew sarcastic sounds of [cough, cough] contempt could be so dangerous? Whew! Gonna have to dial back the maniacal laughter in the future.


What's that? The Wreck? Oh, well, Mandy, I gotta tell ya: Transporter malfunctions like these are why I prefer to travel by shuttlecraft.

What kind of idiot would even ASK somebody to make that logo into a cupcake cake?! Seriously, a lot of these people are just asking for it.
