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? ;)

Sunday Sweets: Fall Fling

It's that time of year when trees put on their most colorful finery,

...and then dramatically drop it all off again.

Our lawns become a technicolor playground,

(By Sweet Art Lab)

 

While inside everyone's decorating with rich golds and reds and orange to match:

Even though the days aren't TOO cold,

(By Gateau Delice)

...it's still nice to break out the sweaters and thick knit socks.

 

Especially during trips to the pumpkin patch!

Dingdingding! We have a winner!

 

It's a good idea to buy an extra pumpkin (or six) for carving.

And don't you love how much easier it is to find caramel apples now?

(By Andrea's Sweet Cakes)

That's always a good thing.

 

Scarecrows can finally rest their arms,

While the rest of us stock up on bear necessities and fight the urge to hibernate.

So, before I stock up on chocolate and plan a Fall nap, let me just wish you all:

Happy Fall!

This Cake's Got Balls. (No, Like Literally.)

Hey, do you know what Truck Nuts are?

If you do, congrats, you're from the South like me. YEEHAW AND HOWDY.

For the rest of you, Truck Nuts are dangling testicles for your truck. I wish I was making this up.

Anyway, the reason I mention Truck Nuts (besides seeing how many times I can type "Truck Nuts" in this post) is because NOW THEY MAKE THEM FOR CAKES, and the world will never be same.
(Hamilton high five heyooooo)
(Truck Nuts Truck Nuts Truck Nuts Truck Nuts)
(Ahem.)

Y'all ready for this?

 

Keep scrolling; this needs a proper build up.

 

And while I've got you here, I'm open to suggestions on how to post this to Facebook without getting banned.

 

Again.

 

(Lousy naked turkey cake.)

 

Almost there, now.

 

Still ready?

 

Here we go:

 

But not like that.

 

Ew.

 

OK, for real now:

Great Blushing Beefy Bow-Balls, Batman!

I'll give you a moment.

Honestly, there's something almost poetic about a sparkly pink cake with balls. It says, "Hey, I like sparkly pink cake and bows, AND I HAVE BALLS." Y'know? [nodding] Yeah. I like that.

 

Thanks to Rebecca H. for really busting our preconceived ideas about masculinity.
