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? ;)

Beauty Is Only Skin Deep

If you think animated characters today set an unrealistic standard of beauty for your kids, then you're in luck! Today's cakes will show you some great ways to lower that standard, all while teaching important life-lessons!

First, remember, girls: strong jawlines = strong women.

 

Also, some things are better gotten off your chest.

 

While others - such as missing limbs, sagging chests, and worryingly large necks - are best left unmentioned:

On the plus side, questions like "Where's the rest of her choker? Or her arm? Or her ear?" can help distract viewers from misspellings. Case in point: did you notice "bithday"?

 

Brenda S., Aaryn C., & Beth, these cakes are beautiful, no matter what they say.

Where There's A Will

It's Talk Like Shakespeare Day!

So, instead of making Much Ado About Wrecking, we're just going to let the Bard himself insult the cakes.

 

"They lie deadly that tell you you have good faces."
- Coriolanus

 

"Thou art a boil, a plague sore, an embossed carbuncle in my corrupted blood."
- King Lear

 

"I shall laugh myself to death at this puppy-headed monster!"
- The Tempest

 

"Thy food is such
As hath been belch'd on by infected lungs."
- Pericles

 

"Thou lump of foul deformity!
Out of my sight! Thou dost infect my eyes."
- Richard III

 

"I wonder that you will still be talking. Nobody marks you."
- Much Ado About Nothing

 

"A knave; a rascal; an eater of broken meats; base, proud, shallow...

 

 

"...beggarly, three-suited, hundred-pound, filthy, worsted-stocking knave; a lily-livered, action-taking knave, a whoreson...

 

"... glass-gazing, super-serviceable finical rogue; one-trunk-inheriting slave, one that wouldst be a bawd, in way of good service, and art nothing but the composition of a knave, beggar, coward, pandar, and the son and heir of a mongrel bitch...

"... one whom I will beat into clamorous whining, if thou deniest the least syllable of thy addition."

- King Lear


Wow. Uh, thanks, Will. I couldn't have said it better myself.

 

I can no other answer make but thanks, and thanks, and ever thanks to Elisabeth T., Kimberly L., Alexandra D., Mallie R., Amy P., Rebecca C., Jennifer S., Libby W., Alison, and Talley. Fair befall you!
