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? ;)

Three Wrecks Guaranteed To Make Your Eye Twitch

This cookie cake is the visual equivalent of cruising down a smooth, freshly paved highway... and having your front tire fall off:

Oooh. So close.

 

This one's more like tripping and falling in front of a bunch of people, then getting up like nothing happened and limping off with a whistle just to show you meant to do that:

Bad news, Moms-To-Be: you're about to experience painful contractions.

 

Ahh, but nothing, NOTHING compares to reading this last cake aloud:

And that's how you sound like a Southern Belle wishing her hoo-haw a happy birthday, y'all.

 

Thanks to Melissa B., Desiree P., & Deedra G. for inflicting that fabulous new nickname on Virginias everywhere.
