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? ;)

You Know, The Red Soxes? The Famous Soccer Team?

Ahh, sports cliches. Just like cake wrecks, they may talk a good game:


...but they're rarely a slam dunk:


And if they don't always bat 1000,

...well, that's just par for the course.
(Or rather, "poo for the course.")


Besides, when the gloves come off?


Well, let's just say they are really, REALLY off.


Talk about a curve ball, how many fingers are on that thing?


Here's one way out of left "feild."

Ooooh, swing and a miss.


Well, wreckerators, what can I say? The ball's in your court.

And that's a whole lot of dribblin'. Just saying.


So remember, bakers, keep your eye on the ball, step up to the plate, be a team player, and most importantly, be sure to celebrate Sports Cliché Week with a real knockout cake.


And thanks to Kristi S., Jessica S., Julie Anne, Kara S., L, Elizabeth B., Laura M., & Angela J. for challenging me to keep the ball jokes to a minimum for once. IT WASN'T EASY, lemme tell ya.

That one up there is not a glove. It's a turkey with a baseball stuck on it's head. Poor thing!

Sand traps in number three look like number two. Anyone notice?

There is NO WAY that last one was anything besides intentional. :-O

The second looks like a crumpled piece of orange paper in a tiny dented trash can.

I misread #6 as "Way to Ho!"

I think they’ve just given up altogether in trying to make CCCs (patooie!) look even slightly good.

".....And it's ROOT ROOT ROOT and all that for the OLD BALL whateveritis GAAAAME!!"
🎶(Hey! Where"s my peanuts and Crackerjack?)

The third one down was a foil......
The gift was the pearls ...necklace and bracelet....and...*squinting* a dip in the pond?
(All he had left...HEY whatta ya want? It's the thought that counts!)

I still don't understand how a cake flavour can be 'yellow'. What does that even mean??? At least it's a distraction from wondering what the wrecks are supposed to be. I don't know sports but even I can see a few things wrong there...

1) Where are the foxes in those soxes?
2) This basketball looks more like roadkill. See the tire tread marks on it?
3) Maybe that strange creature popping up on the right side is the Loch Ness Monster's cousin, the Land Ness Monster.
4) They put this in the display the wrong way. It should have been turned sideways with the thumb down and it would be quite appropriate.
5) I noticed those two things popping up out of the ground on either side. They must be gopher balls.
6) Yup, does look like a turkey.
7) Shouldn't that be "feild gaol"?
8) I know what happened here. The ball on the right all by itself farted. That's why all the others have moved away.
