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? ;)

Sure, Why Not: If Clown Cakes Were Super Heroes

It's International Clown Week, gang, which means it's time to again remind you that I used to be a clown. Yep, white face, balloon animals, the works.

Now, I realize my colorful past may disturb you, but keep in mind I did it for the children.
Specifically the ones who ran away screaming at the mere sight of me, since the ones who ran AT me were a lot more likely to go for the groin.

Those were interesting times. Interesting, painful times.

Anyway, since clowns always get a bad rap, today I'm introducing some little-known clown superheroes. That's right: clown superheroes. Aw yeah. Prepare to be WHELMED.

Starting with...

The Incredible Bulk!

His enemies will never get HIM into a slimming A-line.

 

Bozo Constrictor:

 

Sneaky Pickles:

Able to scale tall buildings... in really big shoes.

 

The Clown With No Super Powers But Who Has A Cool Car:

Fun Fact: There are actually 42 clowns in there.

 

The Invisible Clown:

Don't ask to see his levitating donut trick. JUST DON'T.

 

The Amazing Spider-Bozos:

Their signature move is sneaking up on children from above and lobbing balloon animals at them.

 

Bumble Bug:

Because the Transformers kicked him out.

 

The Meringue Magneto:

 

And of course, Mr. Incredible:

He experiences a lot of burning sensations, IF you know whatta mean.

 

Thanks to Kristen M., Brittany, Laura S., Laura W., Michelle B., Robin C., Steve & Carisa, Mary R., & Ed for the SUPER funny business.

Missed Marks: Spots, Jeeps, And Impossible Mountains

Amy asked for cheetah spots on her friend's birthday cake, kind of like this:

 

But instead she just got "spots":

Appropriately Timed Fun Fact: Did you know Brits call zits "spots?"

Kelsee ordered this sculpted Jeep cake:

 

...but after driving her crazy, the baker's results fell flat:

I'd steer clear of this place in the future, Kelsee.

And finally, Kendra wanted this gorgeous ombre number for her wedding:

You know that song, "Ain't No Mountain High Enough?"

 

This one was definitely too high.

Sorry, Kendra.

 

Thanks to Amy A., Kelsee S., & Kendra L. for letting us share their pain... and also laugh at it a little.
