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? ;)

Sesame Street Sweets!

Last Monday was Sesame Street Day, so how about a little belated 'Street partying? Besides, the gang's all here!

(By Leah's Cake Creations)

I've often been told I have angry eyebrows, so I think Oscar and I would get along. And if not, I bet the trash talk would be EPIC.

Big Bird! Such a classic. I'm 39 years old, and I still want to give him a big hug.

Elmo gets the BEST colors; check out that fade on the bottom tier!

 

And for something to make you go, "Awwww":

(By Bella Cupcakes)

Awwwww.

 

Here's a fabulous Ernie:

Wait. Is that a blue Big Bird on the right side of the cake?!

Huh. Apparently that's Pino, the Dutch version of Big Bird.
Now you know.
(And knowing is half the battle!)

Jen claims that Cookie Monster eats cookies the way I eat popcorn.
I'm not saying she's right, I'm just saying you should always learn from the master, kids.

 

Now... the cutest thing ever:

(By Particular Cakes)

Look at those feet!

 

And now, the muppet with the best laugh:

(By Cakes Decor member Nori)

Ah! Ah! Ahhh!
Come to think of it, my eyebrows may also be a bit Count-like.

 

And speaking of fuzzy things:

(By Cupcakes Nouveau, now closed.)

These are beyond fabulous. And mini marshmallows for packing peanuts? YES.

 

And last but not least, group shot!

(By The Royal Bakery)

So fun! I especially love the layered "feathers" on Big Bird.

The Far Side of Cake, Vol 11 

If Dr. Seuss wrote naughty adult books:

I do not like them
Sam-I-Am
I do not like
Green eggs and wang

*****

 

Of course, those who knew what to look for could see the early signs of favoritism:

*****

 

...then after he lost the Gieco gig, he did a series of humiliating spots for a local Hot Dog stand.

*****

 

Days turned to weeks, and weeks to months. Then, one chilly Fall morning, they found them:

10 pristine John Deere hats, carefully arranged around the meadow edges - but not a single tractor in sight.

*****

 

"Loves: nature, hunting his kids, volunteering."

Just another reminder of the importance of proper comma use, my friends.

 

Thanks to Erin H., Amber M., Erin B., Julia K., & Sober (ha!) for setting our sights on the far side.
