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? ;)

This Is Your Holiday Break... In Santa Cakes

Santa's Six Stages of Holiday Gatherings:


1. Stress

"So much to do!"


2. Fear

"I'll never get it all done!"


3. Determination



4. Panic



5. Acute Social Awkwardness

"Dang it, Aunt Linda, I need my space."


6. Food Coma

"hnnnnnnnnnngggggg worth it."


Thanks to Stacy H., Ramona R., Sarah P., Heidi S., Julia A., & Randy K. for that eerily accurate recap.

#1 needs to go in the dictionary next to the word "stress"... it effectively demonstrates both the emotional & scientific definitions.

#3 looks like Grampy from the Betty Boop cartoons.

#5 *reads top caption & sees bug-eyed cake* *starts laughing*
*scrolls down & sees second cake* *laughs harder*
*scrolls down & reads bottom caption* *stage-three cackle achieved*
