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? ;)

Thanks to Anne H., Deon M., Meg M., Jessica A., Kaitlin K., Mariah E., Hillary, M.M., Savannah G., & Tara W. for the wrecky treats. Oh, and I've never actually had my house TP'd; my generous candy distribution is both fear-based and extremely effective. :D

Or there's this version.

1) "We forgot to buy Halloween candy and the trick or treaters are already showing up."
2) "Don't blame me for not remembering the candy. This is your fault!"
3) "Sorry, kids. Heh, heh, heh. We didn't remember to buy candy. Ha, ha! We'll try to make it up next year."
4) "It looks like they're getting ready to organize a mob. Are those pitchforks and torches?"
5) "OK, that's it! Lock and bolt the door and board up all the windows."
6) "I think I need another drink. This has been too much for me."
7) "I keep hearing funky noises outside and haven't come close to sleeping yet."
8) "It's six in the morning and I guess I have to unbolt the door and see what happened."
9) "Eggs, shaving cream and TP. That's it! I will have my revenge on these little monsters."
10) "All this has made me sick. Take my temperature. I think I'm feverish. I know I'm burning mad. Just wait until next year when we give them laxatives that look like chocolate. Then they'll wish they still had that TP."

We live in a little 'burb near Atlanta. You don't know how accurate this is. We get ONE THOUSAND kids in a 3 hour span. They are bused in from all over the city. We have a sneaky way of saving candy - we covertly throw a ketchup packet into the sacks of not-at-all-dressed, or old-enough-to-smoke (ahem) "kids." We've become experts at throwing "something" into bags. The ketchup is only for the very worst offenders. Yes, I'm going to Hell.
