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? ;)

Hey Look! A Penguin!

My friends, it's 3:17 AM.


Well it is.

And now you are AWARE.


Sunday was Penguin Awareness Day, so here are a few more facts you should know:

FACT: Penguins have hinged necks, and can swivel their chins up 160 degrees.

Or maybe this one was hit by a truck.

Either way, best not to step over it while wearing a skirt.


FACT: Penguins are part ninja. One could be sneaking up behind you at this very moment, and you would never know.

A dark aura of foreboding washed over Rudolph... along with the faint scent of kippers.


FACT: Penguins have an affinity for lifting classic cars with their beaks.
It really impresses the hot chicks.

"Vroom vroom, mutha*&!@r!"


FACT: Penguins don't die.
Well, ok, they DO die, but then they turn into ghost penguins, which are, like, WAY cooler.

FACT: That "cooler" line was totally intentional.


FACT: Penguins can actually melt in water tainted with 2000 Flushes.

So no splashing.

Today's post had me giggling all the way through. I may have even snorted. ;^ } The wordplay was awesome!

I've gotta say, that Ninja penguin behind Rudolph has a seriously dislocated beak..out of his chest! Or maybe that a glowing weapon on a Ninja snowman?

1) A penguin in a fur coat? Was his tux at the dry cleaners? Or has he gone high society and snobbish?
2) Or maybe his head wasn't screwed on just right...
3) And it's time to end this Nature special, for the kid's sake.
4) Not to mention it helps him get away from Batman.
5) If this baker doesn't remember that igloos are in the north hemisphere and penguins are in the southern hemisphere, it means that neither of the hemispheres of his brain are working properly.
6) Q: "What is a penguin doing in my toilet tank?" A: "I think it's the backstroke".

Anybody else need a good dose of "8 Ball Bunny"?

1. Michael Meyers got tired of terrorizing Crystal Lake and decided to go to Sea World. I know that doesn't explain the purple flowers. Does everything require an explanation?

2. Worst impression I have seen of Daffy Duck after an encounter with Elmer Fudd. And it's a CCC.

3. A still from the 'Uncle Remus Christmas Special', which was canceled just before it was to be shown.

4. "Here's your problem, lady!" Shout out to fans of the South Main Auto Channel.

5. 'Spy vs. Spy' visits Juneau, Alaska, home of the chic pillbox igloo. "Juneau if she remembered to put a cake under all that frosting?" "Alaska."

6. "I thought we were out of gel icing." "We are. I had to improvise, so I grabbed a couple tubes of toothpaste from aisle 6." "Mmminty."

I was waiting for a Burgess Meredith cake (the Penguin from the 60's Batman series, youngsters.)

Well that first one looks like a steam roller ran it over and then the penguin got so terrified it turned into a decrepit snowman lmao.

My brain can’t quite figure out how that very large Rudolph fit inside that little cupcake. He looks like he’s stuck inside quicksand, or worse, mud. “The Creature from the Mud Lagoon.” Yep, that totally works.

Loved the Spy vs. Spy reference. And the puns were the icing on the cake.

#2 - Cthulhu penguin!

#5 - Hey, the albino penguins from "At the Mountains of Madness"! Looks like today is Lovecraft Appreciation Day too.

Picture Three: He's not sneaking up on Rudolph. Just sayin'.

Cool post :)

Or, y'know, a "peng-win", or "peng-wing" - at least, according to Benedict Cumberbatch.
