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? ;)

Poor Darth Vader. He used to be the baddest of the bad guys, the deadliest dad, and the grumpiest force-choker around. Over the years, however, he's been reduced to a cuddly bear, a Hello Kitty parody, and a really excellent dancer.

Adding to the indignity, George Lucas added even more "tweaks" to the original Return of the Jedi which had the Internet on FIRE with all of geekdom up in arms. Most lampooned was the addition of a rather entertaining Vader yell, which has been described as "ridiculous," "undignified," and "Dude, it's a yell. What's the big deal?"

Well, never fear, fellow fans! I'm here to help.

In fact, I promise you'll never think that yell is undignified again.

Compared to these.




Oh. Actually, this one's not so bad - since it's plastic and all. I just find it funny to imagine Vader using contractions. Go on, say it in your head. "LUKE I'M YOUR FATHER." No? Just me?


Right, moving on.





 A grateful force-choke to Timbrely, Clare, Julie Anne D., Annie L., Arielle C., and Brenda J. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm off to watch the Vader TomTom commercial again. That thing cracks. me. up.

The first one resembles Yoda wearing a Darth Vader mask, and the last one seems to be a Jawa in a snit.

Cake #3: Luke, I am the walrus (koo koo ka choo.)

Why does everyone get that line wrong?" It would be "NO I'm your father"

This is where the idea for the melted helmet in The Force Awakes came from.

Everyone would be getting it right, if only they would adopt a "Cat in the Hat" attitude.
Like this: "I am father. Father I am. I do not like the Sam I am (not). I do not like your helmet like -a -pot. I would like it ----"
Okay! I'm leaving...yes, I am.

"LUKE I'M YOUR FATHER." No? Just me?

Just you; I'm more like "LUKE I'M YOU'RE FATHER."

Ha ha! The last one looks like Baby Vader. He's seems to be wearing a black, frilly baby bonnet. Maybe it's Luke and Leia's half-sibling?
(Cooing), "Who's a little Vader? Who is?"

The quote is: “No, I am your father.”

The last one looks like a Doctor Who Cyberman wearing a medieval wimple.

Happy Falker Satherhood, Pops Skywalker!

Well, they all got the color right ...

Lol I am dying of laughter at all these poor Vader attempts. Even the plastic one couldn't get the quote right so still a wreck lol.

I thought that last one was channeling Mary Queen of Scots!

The second one is definitely Stewie Griffin's Darth Vader.

Oh wow, we still say "roundabound" to each other when driving and we encounter a traffic circle.

Don't forget the Darth Vader accessories for Mr. Potato Head, to turn him into "Darth Tater."
