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? ;)

The Many Faces of Constipation

Well, ok, maybe just two of them:

I guess now we know why they're always angry.


Thanks to Kevin C. for his special report on "The Fecal Failures of Furious Fowl."

Trust me. You DON'T want to see what happens when you hit the yellow bird's power boost.

I must be Daylight Saving's Time addled, because I think it would be really hilarious if the cake behind them was a little "Activia" replica.

Heh-this could go in the knockoff category-the not very happy birds :)

Wow.... it's all about perspective I guess LOL. I did NOT see angry birds at first glance... I saw two (very terribly done) Loraxes.... half-buried? Then I saw the commentary, and went "Huh? ...Ohhh, I see it now"

It's Beavis and Butthead, reincarnated as angry birds!

Did you mean: "The Many Feces of Constipation"?

Now to complete the theme, a tiny blue bird CCC (pa-tooie!) that breaks apart when you hurl it against the wall

Fuming feathered fowl
Fattened; fecklessly fetid
Find fiber for flock!

When just the title makes you laugh before you even see the cakes, you KNOW it's going to be a good post! Thanks Jen!

Sorry, I went right past those Less Than Happy Birds and right to the blue cube in the background. I think it's supposed to be a kite flying amidst the clouds in the sky. Or, perhaps a zit on Cookie Monster's face that has just been popped?

Huh...that never occurred to me. Maybe the pigs should send them a prune basket?

After I had just sent off my last comment, my daughter came over. I asked her what she thought these cakes were supposed to be. She said, "Ummm...misshapen heads?" I chortled, saying, "Actually, they're Angry Birds." She replied, "I can't really tell." That pretty much sums it up, I think. Thank you, Maddy.

Yup, that would explain it.

Plume - My thought exactly! (Well, almost exactly. My thought was, "Frankly, they look more constipated than angry, really...").

I guess great minds really DO derail off the same tracks!

Is it just me, or does it look like the one on the left has a white mustache and beard? He looks like an attempt at making an Angry Bird-ified caricature of Mr. Miyagi or something.

I guess the simplest designs are the hardest to get right. I don't understand what's happened to their mouths/beaks. They look like they've been plastered over.
Did the birds rat on the mafia?
Or, are they living in the Matrix and Hugo Weaving got a hold of them?

Looks just like the famous violinist's grimaces. I'd long ago agreed with myself only to listen, not to watch him; as I had drawn the same conclusion.

March 12, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterNorine

Scat! You waste my time with manure and fowl offerings.

Yeah, bright side not happening for me today. ;)

March 12, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterBarbara Anne

That's true lisadh, the simplest designs _are_ the hardest to get right. Youu wouldn't think so but its true.

It's a good thing my younger brother doesn't know the wreckreator's address. If he did he would be RAGING!!!
KarateLady's son: "How dare you call these monstrositys Angry Birds!!!! Sacrilidge!!!

Why are you worrying about You Know Who? You should be worrying about U-No-Poo! It's the Constipation Sensation that's sweeping the nation!

Man, those guys are gonna leave some angry turds on somebody's windshield.

I'm just thrilled someone agrees with me that The Giving Tree is the saddest book of all time.

March 12, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterC

All I can say to this is that if I received one of those cakes and not knowing what Angry Birds was I would think they were just angry looking muppets. But yep I know what they are..constipated hence they really should take a laxative and then they can be all happy once more..whatever the heck these things are suppose to really be lol.

Cat, I am slow clapping with John (thoJ) on that one.

March 13, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterLindarella

Aha! Am about to start an Angry Birds cake for a friend. Thanks so much for showing me what NOT to do today. Brrrrrr!
