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? ;)

The Far Side of Cake, Vol. 12

As the bees closed in, Pooh and Tigger realized they'd made a horrible mistake.



"'Put a few leaves on it,' she said. 'It looks too plain,' she said. 'You've got to learn to fill the space,' she said! Well FINE."



Maurice was famous for being the only butterfly who could successfully do "the worm."

Which was handy, since he couldn't fly for sh*t.



There was a long, uncomfortable silence.

The Hello Kitties had, at last, run out of hellos.



When Ghosts Wish Each Other Happy Birthday:



Elmo looked around. Had anyone seen?
But no, the road was deserted.
Plus he was late for Abby's party, and had no time for paperwork or prying questions.

Whistling cheerfully, Elmo turned the wheel and drove on into the night.


Thanks to Cheryl N., Jodee R., Katie M., Lana R., Mary Jane, & Mary K. for keeping it far out.

The Kitties had also run out of ears and complete sets of eyeballs.

LOVE the captions today Jen! What -- is -- that second one supposed to be, anyway?

To be fair, it must be pointed out that Hello Kitty has no mouth - but neither does she have pupils.

That last cake is a classic. Elmo always was a bit of a sketchy character, don't you think?

The 2nd cake is actually an artist's rendition of a dress worn by Eccentrica Gallumbits, the triple-breasted whore of Eroticon 6.

Way to go, Elmo...with friends like you, who needs insurance? Just blame the accident on the icing conditions.

I've lurked here for years and never commented...but honestly you'd think that after all this time I'd have learned to never read this blog while a) eating something or b) taking a drink. Thanks for a great post again, Jen. Now to go find where I left those handy wipes...

I LOVE the ELMO comment!

Maurice looks more like a poor, hapless wang that became disjointed and now has gangrene. Even worse, it looks like the poor fellow has swollen turkey feet growing out of his back.

On the upside, he does look happy even in the midst of his debility.

What IS wrong with me that I see things like this in innocent cup cakes!?

October 24, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterEselle

Thank you, KimS!!!! I also thought of the triple-breasted whore, but that was as far as I got - your comment was very froodish ;-)

<<slow clap>>

Bravo, @sendingtheclowns, bravo.

That wasn't a ghost "Happy Birthday". That was CLEARLY a NINJA "Happy Birthday".

There are no Ninjas here.

The bees on the Pooh cake look more like barrettes:-p

October 24, 2016 | Unregistered Commenterccrow

I LOLed at your Elmo explanation. I'll never look at him the same way again.

October 24, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterAviatrix

Perfect!!! You captured that "Far Side" tone exactly! I had a minor facial explosion at the plight of Tigger and Pooh. and Elmo's sociopathy is the first I've laughed literally out loud at. (LLOL?)

October 24, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterJMixx

From now on, every butterfly I meet is going to be called Maurice.

October 24, 2016 | Unregistered Commenterkismet

I just realized I don't know a single person named Maurice....

New toy hitting the shelves this Christmas: "Hit-and-Run Elmo!"

October 24, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterZippy

Laughing at the when ghosts say happy birthday lol. That is a good one. Love today's post.

October 25, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterArlene Marie

Absolutely hilarious, as always!

October 25, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterMaryO1230

Plus, you should always be suspicious of a guy who refers to himself in the third person. Just saying.

October 25, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterLindarella

@ Jen -- your comment on "Maurice" really got me started, and I was in full-guffaw by the time I got to Elmo. Wonderful captions indeed. You just crack me up! Thanks!
