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? ;)

There once was a wedding confection

That failed the bride's final inspection

So we grabbed an airbrush

Painted it in a rush

And told Yanks it was for their election!



I'm finding it rather outrageous

That I have to spend some of my wages

On a cake for my Dad

Of a girl, partly clad

Is it me, or does she look contagious?



I hope you don't find me neurotic

But I'm sure my new heart is necrotic

It rattles and shakes

And I think that it's cake...

Did I mention my surgeon's psychotic?



Clap your hands for poor Tinkerbell

A bee sting has caused her to swell

Grab a fresh EpiPen

And inject her again

For she's really just not looking well.



 If you just can't spell "congratulations"

And your piping skills won't win ovations

You should find a career

Where you won't end up here




Or at least take extended vacations.



I once saw a cake in Nantucket

That had frosting applied by the bucket

Though it's called a nice gift

It's too heavy to lift

So I guess that I'll just have to chuck it.

Sarcasm "Awareness" Month

Over the years, I've noticed some of you don't "get" sarcasm. Which I totally understand! I mean, sarcasm is super hard. Really.

So. Let me help. Because I care. I really, really care.

Okay, let's say your company didn't meet a deadline, and they're going out of business.
You might buy your team a cake like this:

See? This says, "Way to drive the company into the ground with your total incompetence, you bunch of boobs I can't be bothered to list by name" without actually saying it!

Yay sarcasm!


Or maybe your sister is engaged, but they haven't set a date:

This says, "Common law still counts, right?"


Maybe your husband hasn't changed a diaper in 6 weeks because he's off playing Call of Duty. Again.

Passive aggression is soooo much better than attacking the Xbox with a weed wacker. Am I right?


Or maybe you just really, really don't like Kate.

"Huppy" Birhduy *Kate!

The black icing IS your gift, btw; you'll just get it delivered later, if you know what I mean. [eyebrow waggle]

Also "Good luck" figuring out what the asterisk is for.


Of course, when all else fails, there's still the direct approach:



They'll think you're kidding, but you'll know.

You'll know.


Thanks to Sara R., Erin C., Anony M., Laura E., Daniel A., Louise P., & Chris M. for these great cakes. No really. I mean it. You're all my heroes.
