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? ;)

10 Absolutely Ridiculous Easter Cakes

"PHENOMENAL COSMIC POWERS!!"

"Iiiittty bitty living space."

 

Ever wonder why cake decorators use so much plastic flotsam?

WONDER NO MORE.

 

Still, where there's a will to wreck, there is a way:

Bravo, wreckerators. BRAVO.

 

Because when I think of the resurrection of Jesus, I think of splattery tie-dye:

And carrots on a cross.

(I looked it up: carrots are NOT cruciferous vegetables. Dang it.)

 

Easter egg or old pepperoni?

Either way, WOW AM I IN THE EASTER SPIRIT.

 

Q: So how hard IS it to make an egg-shaped cake?

A: Oh, about that hard.

 

"Quick! To the Dimensionally Inaccurate Carrot Car, Bun-Man!"

"I'll be right behind you in the Electro Egg!!"

*zodzodzod*

 

"It's pronounced 'Buh-THEAD.'"

"And that's MISTER Butthead to you."

 

Confession: I actually love these and want a dozen of my very own:

Mostly because they remind me of this:

Make Like A Bunny...

Look, I'm not saying I've inadvertently created a legion of gutter-minded wrecky minions - I'm NOT.

However, a lot of you keep sending me one particular design of Easter cake, claiming there's something a bit "off" about it.

At first I didn't see it.

"Aw, what's wrong with this one?"

 

But over time...

"Actually, this DOES seem a little... huh."

 

[head tilt]
"Well, maaaaybe..."

 

"OK NOW I SEE IT."

 

Actual conversation between me and John:

John: See what?
Me: C'mon. You don't see it? Not even with that last one?
John: No.
Me: So you don't feel that bunny is, say, rising to the occasion? Bursting forth with glorious song? Losing his head?

[hopeful pause]

John: You're a sick, sick woman.

 

So for my confused, innocent, mind-like-driven-snow readers (and husband) who still don't see a problem: allow me to tell you the tale of Wee Willy Winkie And His Stripey Easter Sock:

He had one.

THE END.

 

Thanks to Kim A., Bonnie S., Jessica R., Fiona H., Ashley W., & Anna C. for reminding us that the Fatal Attraction bunny is still worse.

No, no that one. THIS ONE:
