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? ;)

Monday Sweets(?) Celebrates Parks And WRECK

Yesterday Alison told us in the comments that she'd be disappointed if we didn't have a follow-up post entitled, "Celebrating Parks and Wreck."

So Alison, your wish?

OUR COMMAND.

Play it again, Jen.

 

July is Parks and Recreation Month!

If you think I'm going to use this as an excuse to post a bunch of fun cakes and reminisce about Parks & Rec the series, then you are absolutely correct.

But first:

"Marta, I'm gonna need two hours' worth of waffles."

THIS'LL DO.

 

Besides, when else could I feature an awesome shoe cake?

I bet Andy would love that name for his shoe-shine stand, too.

 

You may see a cute pony, but *I* see Li'l Sebastian:

::sniff:: SO CUTE.

 

Then there's the man, the myth, the legend:

 

And perhaps his greatest legacy:

ALL the breakfast foods!

 

Believe it or not, someone actually made a Cones of Dunshire cake - and it's awesome!

It's all about the cones.

 

This reminds me of Leslie's favorite wildflower mural:

So gorgeous - and all buttercream! I can't get over those razor sharp edges, wow.

 

Oooh, here's a beauty worthy of Duke Silver himself:

Best saxophone cake I've ever seen - and yes, the sax is edible!

 

I suppose we should bring it back to this nation's parks, though, since that IS what we're celebrating this month:

I had to double-check that the animals are hand-sculpted; I thought they were store-bought figurines!
Incredible.

 

Well, however you celebrate this month, minions, don't forget to TREAT YO'SELF:

Sure, some folks like bubble baths... I'll take the cake.

Happy Parks & Recreation Month, and happy Sunday Monday, everyone!

To Be Fair, The Fish Are Naked, Too

Hey, did you know it's Nude Recreation Week?

No?

The weird thing is, neither did this baker:

o.0

 

Believe it or not, this was for Canada day last week. CANADA day.

Maybe the baker was trying to get a rise out of us?
(BWAHAHAA... ew.)

 

Presenting my new favorite graduation cake of all time:

"Feel the 'congratulations,' Kronk."
"Oh, I can feel it."

 

There are about a bazillion of us Jennifers out there, but thanks to this one's birthday cake, we ALL get a special gift:

That's right: from now on you can call me...

THE JIFFENER.

(Because choosey Jens choose "Jiff!")

 

Here comes the sun
[doo dee doo doo doo]
Here comes the sun...

QUICK IRON MAN PUNCH IT IN THE FACE

 

I've been watching the new Ninja Turtles series lately (because suck it, Game of Thrones), and guess what this reminds me of. Go on:

You see it, right? If the light reflections were eyes? Right?

 

BOOYA. (...kasha.)

Good luck eating a pink ice cream cone now without thinking, "THIS IS THE KRANG ICE CREAM OF THE PLACE WITH THE CAKES THAT POSTS THE CAKES THAT SOMETIMES LOOK LIKE KRANG ICE CREAM."

You're welcome.

 

And finally, the best part isn't the botched inscription:

The best part is this is an anniversary cake.

LOVE.
(Or... not?)

 

Thanks to Ashley T., Rebecca R., Sarah M., Jennifer D., Kate P., Anony M., & Heather B. for helping keep love alive.
