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? ;)

(Warning: Mildly naughty stuff ahead)

Some of my favorite new submissions this week:

 

For Lori's 30th birthday her friends thought it would be cute to get her a "2nd quinceañera" cake - quinceañera being the popular Latin American celebration of a girl's 15th birthday.

Now, Lori's baker may not know how to spell "quinceañera," but darned if she isn't a wiz with Hooked on Phonics:

Go on. Read it aloud.

RIGHT??

See, now I want to call up this bakery and order something in Klingon, just to see what I get.

The trouble with naming your child Clint:

O.0

Never fear, Faith's clown hat is here!

I know it's not even Thanksgiving yet, but some bakeries are already gearing up for the most politically correct time of the year:

Peace on earth. Goodwill toward non-gender-specific beings.

 

Oh! But you know what's NOT genderless?

This soccer team's cake:

Q: What's that shooting out from the tip?

A: I dunno, but I do know this:

"He shoots, he scooooores!!"

 

Thanks to Lori B., Ryan C., Ben W., Lori M., & Amanda M. for a real blast.

Use Less, Wreck More

Today is Use Less Stuff Day - a time to push back against rampant materialism, reflect on life goals, and really ask ourselves the tough questions.

Like:

Do Snow White and the Dwarves really NEED a helicopter?

I mean, maybe they're Ok with just a monster truck, motorcycle, jeep, Lightning McQueen, and an airplane:

Or if not, Hulk could just throw them really hard.

 

And while we're cutting back, how many choking hazards do you REALLY need for a one-year-old?

 

Or for your cupcakes?

 

And why does Hilary Duff need so many Barbie accessories?

(Hey look, it's the pink boot we all lost when we were six! [No? Just me?])

 

My point is, why waste so much plastic flotsam when a single, well-placed element can be just as...
uh....

 

That is, I mean, sometimes it only takes ONE to... er...

Huh.

 

Well, maybe if we just put our heads together...

Perfect.

 

Thanks to Mike & Marja, Joyce W., Anony M., Nelly R., Melanie L., Mary V., & Susan S. for showing us how to get a head without paying an arm and a leg.
