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 Best Valentine Wreck Of 2016

Your Valentine photos are still trickling in this week, minions, but I'm calling it:

This is the best one.

Forget the chocolates and stuffed animals, John; next year, I'll have whatever this baker is having.

"Endless Love As Time Ticks"

It's almost like poetry, if poetry was a drunk jellyfish rolling around the cake with too many piping bags.

Oh, and we think that's supposed to be a clock, so... weep for the future, my friends. WEEP.


Thanks to Ashley R. for ticking that one off our list.

Reminds me of some of the neurological functioning tests where they make you fill in a clock face and put in the current time, not sure what pathology this uncovers....

In an attempt to give the wrecorator the benefit of the doubt, I tried to convince myself this was a 24-hour clock that for some reason had two 1-12 segments instead of one 1-24 flow. But then I saw the extra 1-6. I got nuthin.

Thus proving that stupidity is timeless, although some people could use 31 hours in a day.

I've heard "As time goes by", but never whatever that thing is trying to say. The decorator has obviously never seen a non-digital clock.

What was the decorator on, I need some O_o

February 18, 2016 | Unregistered Commentermindy1

I suppose this is what happens when decorators grow up with digital clocks. But, dang, the day seems long enough without adding even *more* hours to it!

Today is National Drink Wine Day. Maybe the wreckerator started early?

I agree w/Kathleen! The model for this Wreck was a Neurological Function Test! Auck!

Drunk jellyfish? Is that a Dalek Caan joke?

February 18, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterJMixx

And what are those lines radiating out from the center? I guess if you have a clock that tells the time for two-and-a-half days at a time, maybe you need 14 hands? But which is the big hand? So many questions...

February 18, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterBluebonnet

Well, time is all wibbly-wobbly and relative. I guess the clock is a reflection of that

I Immediately thought of Hunger Games. Then I realized how many sections there were. I think the Game Designer went a bit overboard.

I too agree with @Kathleen -- neurological function test. Head Baker: Please pipe a clock onto this cake. Wreckerator: Okey dokey! Neurologist: I see indications of a stroke in the frontal, occipital,and temporal lobes. Plus drunkenness in the extreme. Oh...and beriberi!

@ Kathleen

Or maybe those experiments where they fed spiders various mind-altering drugs and photographed the resulting webs.

February 18, 2016 | Unregistered Commenterrocketride

I'm with AngelaS; I thought maybe a 24-hour clock, but... NOPE. ::sigh::

February 18, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterErica

It's actually a big ball of wibbly wobbly, timey wimey... stuff. I'm not sure what dimension you're from if you think clocks look like that. Perhaps someone created a paradox and messed up time.

February 18, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterTime Lord

Too bad there aren't clicks available as an example for the wreckerator. Oh wait...there's one on my wrist. And on the wall by the door. And by Googling-wait for it-clock.

Oh yeah, Drunk Jellyfish and the Neurological Function Test, weren't they the band that toured with Spinal Tap?

My apologies to Dave Barry & the Rock Bottom Remainders.

That's either an unfortunately short eternity, or one damn long day.

February 18, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterDonnaB

This wreckerator is crying out for help. They are trapped in a bakery where time just goes on and on and on so they put it on cake hoping someone will come and save them from a life of eternal wrecks.. that or they just plain don't know what a clock looks like lol.

Endless Time and the Love Ticks, tonight only at the Forty Watt.

February 19, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterCaro

I wonder if Time Ticks would ever show up on Doctor Who as some nefarious alien trying to take over the world. They'd probably resemble Plankton from SpongeBob.

February 19, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterJennifer

Reminds me of a DWI arrest video. Officer: "So you are just coming home from work. How long did you work today sir?" Drunk guy: "97 hours" Maybe they have clocks like this where he works.
