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? ;)

What Makes Jen Happy?

This does:

Yes, seeing Joy and Erin wearing their official Cake Wrecks aprons while holding a tribute CCC Wreck makes my soul positively hum with happiness. Hear it?

Joy writes:
"I guess we missed the tribute party post by having our (somewhat) Cake Wrecks-themed event actually ON the day of said post, but here are some photos of my friend Erin and I and our attempt at a CCC wreck (aka Frostyng the "Snowman"). Sadly, we are not professionals, and therefore good ol' Frostyng came out a little too well to be a real wreck, but enjoy anyway!
(Note also the Cake Wrecks aprons we are wearing, which are awesomeness itself.)"

You're right, Joy; that snowman CCC is entirely too well-made to be a Wreck. I mean, look at it:

You made the proportions right! And gave him a cute lil' carrot nose! What were you thinking?


I must admit, though, that "Frostyng" is a great name. Good work.


The Easiest Cake Theme EVER

"You know, I wondered why the baker seemed so relieved when I said I just wanted a "Star Wars: The Clone Wars" cake."

It IS nicely centered, though, Jacqueline W. Maybe that's why the 's' on "wars" was left off?
