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? ;)

Some Days You Finish The Banana...

I know it's a little late to be celebrating Fall foliage, but I'm just loving these tree branches:

Ahhh, the majesty of nature.


In other news, this bed looks like Cookie Monster:



And this is a great way to start a fight:

("What's THAT supposed to mean?!")


Some days you finish the banana, and some days, the banana finishes you.

Guess the baker had to split.


I actually have an aunt Mary (HI AUNT MARY), so from now on when I think of her, I'll think of this:

Only one word right out of four? Uncle!


And finally, when you just can't help hoping it's a birthday cake for someone born in 1976:

[wicked grin]

I guess "No-Grass" is something people in deserts have great success planting. (Also known as *Astro-turf)

1) I'm just going to go out on a limb here and say this baker was too bushed to do this right. Maybe he should just leaf decorating to someone else. I know this has me stumped.
2) Jen, I want to know what's wrong with you. Any other day, you would have made some comment about this looking like a part of the female anatomy. Are you ill? Does John need to take you to the doctor?
3) This one is so simple. It means they don't want her to have to mow a lawn, so they're all going to chip in and put in a rock garden for her.
4) I am plantain my feet here and saying this has no a peel. Is this baker some kind of fruit cake? I'm glad he didn't try to make something else, for it wouldn't have been peachy and probably would have been plum awful.
5) I'm trying to decide - is Aunt Mary really industrious or does she just bug everyone?
6) Okay, Jen, maybe you're not sick after all. Maybe that second one was an aberration.

Wait, that's not supposed to be Cookie Monster? I've got to believe that was intentional. I have no other explanation for those throw pillows.

#2 looks like someone / something is having a wardrobe malfunction.

Are they hiring kindergarten kids to draw trees now?

A-a-n-n-d then there's the stray apostrophe, and the friendly wandering quotation mark, out for a day in that park. Let us No Grass, huh? What's THAT supposed to mean? And "her"? Yeah, that'll get the ball rolling.

If you just remember that "Ants crawl on floors, and aunts marry uncles" you would have only made TWO mistakes in a four word inscription.

Why is there a poo thing on Cookie Monster bed thing?

Alternative to cookie monster - when it's cold and you don't pull the covers up to cover your boobs! Yikes!

I'm guessing the lets no grass grow under her feet means she keeps active and busy - and doesn't refer to real grass.

So, I guess I'm the spirt of '76. Oh, but I was born in August...technically that was the spirt of '75...

No. 1 looks like nuclear cooling towers with plants growing on top.

Where did the idea come from that quote marks add emphasis? It just looks as though they are questionning Sue's gender.

When I lived in SoCal we had a weird tree in the courtyard that they would prune back to a tall stump every few years. Come spring it would spout skinny branches just like the first cake.

Maybe the last cake is referring to 76 Trombones? I'm not sure if that makes it better or worse.

I think that banana finished off the wreckerator that dared try and draw upon it's beauty. Yep I have had way too much caffeine tonight lol.
