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 Far Side Of Cake, Vol 11

If Dr. Seuss wrote naughty adult books:

I do not like them
I do not like
Green eggs and wang



Of course, those who knew what to look for could see the early signs of favoritism:



...then after he lost the Geico gig, he did a series of humiliating spots for a local Hot Dog stand.



Days turned to weeks, and weeks to months. Then, one chilly Fall morning, they found them:

10 pristine John Deere hats, carefully arranged around the meadow edges - but not a single tractor in sight.



"Loves: nature, hunting his kids, volunteering."

Just another reminder of the importance of proper comma use, my friends.


Thanks to Erin H., Amber M., Erin B., Julia K., & Sober (ha!) for setting our sights on the far side.

#2… For whom the bell tolls???

1) And here I thought this was a school science microbe experiment that mutated and got out of control.
2) So heaven has a Gong Show?
3) The result of Hamburglar and Kermit cloning experiment.
4) I bet you were up from sunrise to sunset un-till you came up with this one. Were you going to combine it with any other ideas? This cake is too big, maybe it should have been cropped. But I don't want to complain too much, lest anyone think I'm a belly acre. There's also not a big farm building on the cake - you know, barn none. And I keep looking for this guy in my laptop, but I can never find a farmer in the Dell.
5) Dora's come over all dead, so we're giving her the afternoon off.

Jen, I'm afraid that last cake was meant to be funny to terrible people and not a hilarious/inexplicable mistake at all (I don't think it's a coincidence they used Dora the Explorer as the kid).

Nice to see a racist cake on a Monday morning. Sheesh. Some people...Poor Dora.

I think the last one was a deliberate, well, potshot at Dora.

Third from the end- is that a hot dog, or a frowning hamburger? I don’t get what it has to do with the label on the lid that says Holidays.

Bless you guys for not seeing it, but someone shooting at brown folks across a river is REALLY problematic. Especially with what is going on in San Ysidro right now.

Y'all saying, "Poor Dora", but what about Diego?
