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? ;)

- Jen

See, Alanis, THIS Is Ironic

It's like "celabrate"
On your literacy day:


It's a "great job"

On a depressing cake.


It's the good advice

That you just didn't take couldn't spell!


And who would have thought?


It figures!

Unlike the original, Jen's song contains actual examples of irony. Brava!

I am going to really try to assend to greatness today. I hope I don't get things backassward.

What are those things in the corners of the Great Job cake? They look like dried-up leaves.

How you know you have a dirty mind: you read the fourth cake as Good things came from resexch.
Of course they did.

I've heard the song was in fact verbal irony; it was intended to knowingly mock those who overuse the word "ironic." I cannot speak for the veracity of this claim, but it is something I have heard.

Definition of irony: an outcome of events contrary to what was, or might have been, expected. So, irony is very subjective. The original song had ideas that were the song writer. One person's irony may not be another's. Just trying to clarify to all those who believe their choice of irony is the only way, which is actually very ironic from my perspective.

Happy Gratideon to me! I really love saying that.

As I once heard a stand-up comic say, "Irony is not a black fly in your Chardonnay. Irony is a Scotsman cloning a sheep."

Why did they put Wheat Thins in the corners on the 'Good Job' cake?

I've found myself at the "Ass End of Greatness" for years!

You never know... maybe the last person was really celebrating Gratidion... could be some science fiction thingy!

Assend to greatness. I know some people who got promoted that way. Had to be as it had nothing to do with their qualifications.

I love that the ad that comes up on the right when I looked at this is for Victoria's Secret. And features a nicely placed Ass-End.

Its posts like this that make me wish CW was always (always!) safe for kids and work so I could share it with my students. On the other hand, those NSFW /NSFK posts are always appreciated too. Ass end indeed!

Lol wow. How on earth did these wreckerators even become cake decorators to begin with? I guess they assended into the position. I cannot stop laughing.

The family literacy cake was close, oh, so close. Nicely decorated, attractive writing. But then it became nothing to celabrate.

I hope that last one was a gratideon from Kindergarten.
