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? ;)

Horse (Non)Sense

Momma gave us this birthday tip
Her face stern, her hand on her hip
"When serving horse cake
"With this kind of face

"Well, sonny, don't give me no lip."

***

 

Gumdrop was gloomy and tense
Her flight was one filled with suspense

With wings on one side
No physics applied
But whoever said magic makes sense?

***

 

This pony gives no end of grief
Its texture defies all belief

Missing legs, is it now?
Should we call it a cow?
Because wow does it look like ground beef.

***

 

Ted is a unicorn with sass
His friends like to say he's a gas

The life of the party
Whenever he's farty
And rainbows shoot out of his a$$

 

Thanks to Amanda L., another Amanda, Brio G., & Sarah L. for finding everyone's next birthday cake request. Take note, bakers: Rainbow-Farting Unicorns for EVERYBODY!

Was One Of The 10 Things "Cake Wrecks"?

Madeline writes:

Well sure, but in the bakery's defense, we don't know what was on Madeline's list.

I mean, maybe it looked like this:

Things Sunshine Likes:

1) Sadness
2) Plastic
3) Clashing Colors
4) Writing With Her Feet
5) Staring Into The Abyss
6) Disproportionate Sizes
7) Rough Plaster Walls
8) Ransom Notes
9) Being Forgotten Until The Last Possible Second
10) Balloons

See, if THAT was the list then you've gotta admit: BANG ON.

 

Thanks to Madeline & Sunshine, who I hope finally gets a giggle out of her sweet sixteen tragedy.
