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? ;)

They tell me it's actually cold in places that aren't Florida right now, which I guess explains this?

It's like giant fingers sprinkling dandruff. Ahhh, the magic of winter. (Underlined.)


Now, that design would be strange enough as a one time deal, but guess what.

There's more. And they're hungry.


The best part of this head-scratcher, though - besides the tentacles - is that even the bakers don't know what they're making.

"And if you turn it THIS way, it will show you your dreams."


"... assuming your dreams include a steaming log."


::jazz hands:: WINTER!!

1) Another biological mashup. It's an octo-pussy willow.
2) The rare giant snow squid.
3) But when it fell over, did it make a sound?

I confess, I had no idea it was supposed to be a tree until I read the word "log" for about the 3rd time

It reminds me of the giant aquid in 20000 leagues under the sea!!!

Ah, it's a tree rendered by people who've never seen a tree, but are using a piece of reference art created by someone else who has never seen a tree.

How on earth was the person who did the writing ever allowed near a cake? I hope the cake was for family only. At age 14 you'd die of shame if your friends saw you had a cake like that. What do you want to bet her name was actually Lucia?

It is either a Whomping Willow from Harry Potter or a Tangle Tree from Xanth.....

Was any of these bakers chanting "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" while they made theses because it looks like they succeeded.....
