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? ;)

Evolution Of The Anniversary Cake

Today is John's and my wedding anniversary, so I've been thinking: Remember how the first few years you always celebrate at some fancy-schmancy restaurant?

("Lhappy Ammversary" is totally how I'm saying it from now on.)


And you not only remember the day - you even remember how many days it's been.


After a while you dial down the festivities, though, and maybe just bring home some take-out and a cake:

(The urge to scratch in an "I" at the end there is overwhelming.)
(YOU'RE WELCOME, tech guys.)


Past the ten year mark you both might start to get a little fuzzy on when and what exactly you're celebrating:

"Here's a cake. Hope I got one of those days right."

"Who are you?"


But hey, at least it's happy.

"TMI, mom & dad. TMI!!"


John and I are still a long way off, but I hear making it to your 50th anniversary is a real education:

"Presenting the 2014 graduates of the Aniversity... of LUUURVE."


So, John, sweetie, Happy Arricorz.

(Changed my mind; THIS is how I'm saying it from now on.)


And here's to 50 more Arricorzes, as we learn to hold on to what's most important: how this baker managed to misspell "I" before someone told him to fix it - and then still missed the "you."

Fling Your Stinky Underwear Over There


If you're stumped for cake inscriptions, just remind everyone what the bride's name is, and what the heck you're all doing there:

This kind of shorthand is invaluable for heavy drinkers.


You could also remind them when the party is happening:

...which is perfect for time travelers. And also heavy drinkers.


Since you need games at a shower (it's the law. The cruel, cruel law.) try some fun word jumbles!

Warning: This one is less perfect for heavy drinkers.


Aight, ladies, now it's time to spice things up.

So add butts.


Tina Belcher approved.


You could also throw in a weirdly phallic umbrella/jellyfish thingie:


And end with the insinuation that someone will have stinky underwear by morning:

BOOM. Now that's what I call a shower. Or at least a need for one.


And finally, if you never want to be in charge of the cake again, just bring this along:

Awww yeeeeeeah.


Thanks to Anony M., Trey P., Melinda M., Kristy F., Christine, Liz M., & William M. for the best ransom-note shower cake I've ever seen.
