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? ;)

THE GREAT HUMAN MYSTERY... plus cake!

There is no greater human mystery than our ability to communicate.
To take a picture or concept and implant it perfectly into the mind of another - what wonder!

 

What marvel!

 

Nay, what miracle, even!

 

So the next time you're ordering a cake, minions, just think:

Hey, at least they spelled it right.

Except they didn't.

(But, c'mon, so close.)

That's not what you should think, though.

What you should think is how amazing it is that we can come together as a species through our words and language. That we have this means of showing others how we're feeling, what we're thinking!

And just think: without language...

...this wouldn't be nearly as funny.

And Now A Word From Princess Godzilla

HOW TO BE A PRINCESS
Cake Wrecks style

 

1) First things first: you'll need a wardrobe fit for royalty.

Because even a straight jacket can be princessy when paired with the right skirt/circus tent.

 

2) Have your hair and makeup done professionally every day.

Don't be like Elsa that one time:

(Girl needs to let her liquid eyeliner GO, am I right?)

 

3) Find an animal side kick

Friendly forest creatures are SO overdone, though. I recommend something a little more original:

...like a boa constrictor.

 

4) Eyebrows UP! It helps instill a sense of wonder.

Not to mention a sense of surprise and/or fear.

Which is why:

5) You can never, EVER, stop smiling:

Cindy's foot is currently being gnawed on by angry peasant mice, but do you see her complaining?
NUH-UH.

 

But really, my dear minions, there is only one requirement to be a princess:

Be true to yourself, and feel pretty doing it.

Princess Godzilla demands it.

 

Thanks to Anony M., KM, Noelle T., Kathy C., Sydney C., & Andrea L. for making her daughter the best princess cake OF ALL TIME. Somebody give Princess Godzilla her own movie, product line, and action figures, STAT!
