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? ;)

You Say Potato, I Say Potato, Your Baker Draws a Llama

This was supposed to read, "You'll Never Walk Alone"

So now it's less a promise and more... a threat?


The team is named The Bees, so they asked for a bee near first base:

Which is worse: the fact that they wrote out the instructions, or that "bee" near first base?
'Cuz I'm leaning towards the bee.


Jessica tells me she "has a thing for beards," so she asked the baker to put beards on her cookie cake.

I'm kinda with the baker on this one.


It goes great with Lauren's "Beast of Luck:"


But here's the best one: you know how it's a trend to write "You're dead to us" on goodbye cakes?

I have no idea why it's a trend, but it is.





Anyhoo, here's the very best "You're Dead To Us" cake I've ever seen:

"You're Dad To Us."

That is one stubbornly optimistic baker, you guys, and I love it.

This Wedding Cake Is So Bad It's Freaking Adorable

[running in] YOU GUYS.

I just found my new favorite wedding wreck.


It's... LOOKING... at me.

And once you see the face, that's all you'll see. The little puffball bowtie! The grumpy frown! The parade of heart butts on the bottom! It's... [wiping eyes]... It's just so beautiful.

Now I want Mr. Frumpy Puffball Butts to star in his own superhero comic. I want him to host a reality show where he crashes wedding receptions and critiques the hors d'oeuvres in a snooty British accent. I want a tag-team podcast with the Sorting Hat where they discuss current affairs. I want action figures, fuzzy pillows, coffee mugs!!

No no, wait, I've got it:



[pause followed by hushed whispers]

Er, OK, John says I need to go have a little lie-down now, but I'm telling you guys, I think I'm on to something here. Go ahead and share your best candidate slogan for Frumpy Puffball Butts in the comments, while I brainstorm lawn signs.


And thanks to Shannon C. for finding a campaign we can really sink our teeth into.
