What's a Wreck?

A Cake Wreck is any cake that is unintentionally sad, silly, creepy, inappropriate - you name it.

Someday We'll Find It... And Press Charges

First there was the Rainbow Erection:


Then there was the Rainbow Ejection:


And now, presumably a good 30 minutes later, our nation's bakeries give us this:

The Marshmallow-Topped Drippy Rainbow Wang... Confection



Thanks to Myra D., Aimie T., & Diana W. for making us wonder just how long bakers can keep this up.
