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? ;)

No Butts, No Cuts, NO BUTTS

(Warning: Mildly traumatizing cake ahead. Not safe for overly inquisitive children.)

 

For Labor Day I thought I'd continue one of my personal labors of love:

Convincing bakers to stop butting in on baby shower cakes.

 

 

Now, see, this next cake was fine. Why dump half a toddler on it?

 

'Cuz here's the thing, bakers: even when a butt cake is well executed, it still looks, well...

...executed.

 

But(t) no matter what I say, you guys just keep making them!

And if anything, the butts are getting MORE disturbing.

o.0

 

WHOOPS.

Not a butt. My bad.

[evil grin]

 

That said, some of these are getting SO ridiculous it's actually kind of awesome:

Heck, I want to see this turned into a sit-com. We'll call it Two And A Half Babies. Short Stack here will wear a cute little hat on her waist stump and be perpetually waddling into walls. The other two babies will take turns stealing her boyfriends. Eh?

Oh, you know you'd watch it.

HAPPY LABOR DAY!

 

Thanks to Andrea B., Renee W., Anony 1 & Anony 2, Kiri S., & Susanna F. for the rear view wreckage.
