If you want me to get a huge goofy grin on my face, just send me a picture like this:
Amy P. made this hilarious - and yet absolutely adorable - Wreckplica (see the original here) for a friend's baby shower. I think she greatly improved upon the design, don't you?
I love how they just moved the limbs in towards the center as they served it, too:
I also got an e-mail from Rose this week. Rose tells me that she and her hubby Paul are CW's #1 fans, and so for their wedding reception they teamed up with another CW fan, Stacie - who happens to be a professional baker - and designed THIS beauty:
Don't miss the little carrots on the sides- those are Rose's favorite part. The "Rise n Pail" is a thoroughly butchered version of their names, by the way, and "Happy Weeding" is an homage to this classic Wreck. And, of course, there's the bizarre photo montage - that's a work of art in itself.
And while I'm at it, I can't believe I never got around to posting what Wreck's reader Mary Beth made:
How's that for loyalty - she even listed the site address!! Mary Beth, you are a Wreck star, no doubt about it. (For the Wreck, go here.)
I have lots more fan-made goodies stashed away, but here are just a few more favorites:
And finally, with a CW homage cake to end all CW homage cakes, we have Katy N.'s submission:
A little context: there are apparently a lot of Wreckies at Katy's workplace, so when the time came to throw a party for four ladies who were getting married, they decided to incorporate as many of their favorite Wrecks into one cake as possible (plus a 4-headed bride). They printed out all the relevant blog entries and found a willing (and surprisingly skilled) decorator at a local bakery.
So, how many Wrecks do YOU recognize?
Remember the infamous Fireman cake?
And - could it be? Yes, yes it could! - the Cake Head Diet Aid!!
And don't forget Darth Vader, the "At least you're pretty" line, and all the "lovely" airbrushing. Wow. You guys really outdid yourselves, Katy - and kudos to the decorator for playing along so well!
