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? ;)

Putting Their Best Feet Forward

Ok, this is going to be toe-tally corny, but I'm doing it solely for the laughs.

Ready?

[pregnant pause]

Ta Da!

I get the impression you'd have to be a real heel to belly up to this baby shower cake. Eh?

Yep, the belly cakes just keep getting better and better, folks. I mean, sure, the headless, limbless preggo torso was undeniably appetizing for a while, but it's nice to see bakers reproducing some with a bit more kick, don't you think?

Er...Either this baby is reeeally flexible, or she's going to need some corrective shoes later in life.

So, today: fetal feet.

Tomorrow: fetal faces?

Ahh, we can only hope.

MK & Rose S., these babies really stomp out the competition, don't they?

"World" Tour, Take #2!

That's right, Wrecks fans, we are in the process of rescheduling all of the missed stops on the Cake Wrecks "World" Tour! First up is Austin, where John and I will be this Saturday. Yep, never let it be said that we are not devoted to you, our dear, devoted readers. Why, wild strains of bacterial infections cannot keep us away! (Well, not for very long, anyway.)

Click here for details and to RSVP for Austin. Or keep an eye on the right hand sidebar; I'll be updating the links and dates for Kansas City, New York, and Bethesda as I have them.
