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? ;)

Oprah's 8 Crazy Nights

Oprah just released her annual list of Favorite Things for the holidays, and at least one of them is getting a rise out of folks:

If your Hanukkah celebration lasts more than 8 nights, see your doctor.

 

If this perky pastry looks familiar, it's because I posted it last December:

Except my bread menorah came [snerk] with its own flour-y prose.

Yep, you could almost say my bread puns were... SECOND TO NAAN.

Ahem.

There can be only one conclusion from all of this, of course: Oprah is trolling Cake Wrecks for ideas.

So first off, Oprah, let me say:

And I mean that.

 

Second, since you're clearly looking for the kind of creative, out-of-the-box bakery options that make people laugh and then write incredulous online articles, I have a few more suggestions for your list!

 

1. Bread Snakes

Perfect for snake-lovers, ex-boyfriends, and 1/4 of Hogwarts students.

 

2. Invisible Football Pudding Cake Trays

A holiday touch down if ever I didn't see one.

 

3. A Giant Wad Of Frosting with Little Brownies Stuck To It

Or as I like to call it, a GWOFLBSTI.

 

4. These Things:

I think they're supposed to be some kind of bird.

Let's just agree they're turkeys.

 

And finally, the ultimate gift for those high-fashion ladies who get a little snacky while clubbing:

5. Cheesy Club Sandwich Shoes!

Be a PYT in your BLTs.

 

Thanks to everyone who sent in Oprah's list, plus Julie, Erin R., Carol B., Amanda, Lelac A., & Dorothy B., who's a shoe-in for Weirdest CW Sub Yet. (Get it? SUB? Heyooooo!)

And you should have seen the look on the GUY.

 

"School For Strippers Shut Down After Neighbors Complain"

I guess they never heard Amber's heartwarming backstory.

 

"Dog Driving Tractor Causes Ruff Traffic Jam"

"MY BAD."

 

"Man Sneezes Out Small Plastic Toy Lodged In His Nose For 44 Years"

Think he was a decorator?

 

"Baby Starts Crying In University Lecture, So Professor Responds In Best Way Possible"

Just kidding. He actually did this.

 

"McDonald's unveils new Hamburglar after 'sexy' makeover - but not everyone thinks he's tasty."
