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? ;)

Apron Sale & New Wreckwear

It's always fun seeing what you guys come up with for new shirt designs, and since Zazzle is running a huge sale this weekend I figured I better post these new ones pronto.

First, check out the poo-surfin' hot dog Gwen B. of The Brown Brush art studio designed:
As with all the truly bizarre, sure-to-confuse-everyone-but-fellow-Wreckies designs, I love it.

Here it is on a shirt:

And it's also available on an apron.

For those of you who enjoyed the Dilbert-inspired Wreck from last week, Becki of WhimzyGirlz designed this little number:

Which also looks good in brown for the guys.

Through Sunday Zazzle is offering 25% off all aprons, and 10% off all t-shirts. That's the best discount I've ever seen them offer for aprons, so if you've been thinking about getting one, now's the time. Here are all the apron designs I currently have for Wrecks, but if there's a design you'd like me to add just let me know.

And as always, send your CW shirt designs to comments [at] cake wrecks [dot] com! If I post it, I'll give you a shout-out and link to your site both on Zazzle and here on Wrecks.

Hope you're all enjoying your holiday weekend! Wreck on!

You know, I would love the "demons of stupity" design on an apron. :)

perhaps i'm just zazzle-challenged, but I dont see the big sale price... do i need to add to the cart and go to checkout before it shows up?

wv: wrinenst: It was supposed to say "winners" but the wreckarator got confused...

I think the hot dog poo surfer would make a much better cake wreck book cover than the other choices.

I once intervenously saved some poor kid's birthday when I overheard someone at a supermarket bakery ask "How do you spell Napoleon?" and somebody said "It's like the ice cream."

Now when I look at that lil hot dog surfer I hear Hawaii Five O.

Noo-noo noo-noo noo nooo,
Noo-noo noo-noo noooooo....

Those are really cute..

I love the idea of some unknowing person seeing the shirts and thinking "WTF is a hotdog doing riding a poo wave??"

(My word verification is "nadepto". Do you think that is some Spanish word for "not adept-o"?

Yay for hot dogs floating on poo! LOL

Aren't you violating copyright by taking somebody else's work and then reproducing it as a tee shirt for yourself to sell? Just checking- but you do have permission from all the right people, right?

I wonder if Scott Adams has the "demons of stupidity" trademarked. It's just something I would look into, being a paranoid neurotic mess. :-)

LW- Are you picturing someone saying in court "That was MY hotdog riding a poo wave! How DARE you steal it for your own????"
