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 Truth Hurts. Have Some Cake.

Because this is the kind of thing I do to amuse myself.







And this last one doesn't really fit, but it's the ultimate birthday Truth Bomb:


Thanks to Candice J., Audra M., Katie W., Katherine K., Deborah F., the L family, & Kimberly B. for reminding us the truth hurts sometimes, but everything's better with cake.

I can't help but look at the mustachioed man with the ocelot and think that would be a perfect cake for Archer.

Alice Shortcake thought of the same thing I did and that comment makes me so happy! Shakespeare geeks FTW!

"Well, that's it, guys... We're up sh**s creek in a barbed-wire canoe without a paddle. What should we do?"

"I know! Let's get a cake to celebrate!"

That second cake looks like a mutated crab claw that grew fins and eyes! The laptop it's holding seems to have the British Petroleum logo on it; is this some sort of commentary on the mutations and damage the oil spill caused on wildlife?

Or am I just reading too much into a poorly made fish cake?

Well, if I die in my sleep tonight it will be with the knowledge that homage to Burt Reynolds' Cosmo centerfold has been paid, albeit with a wild animal baby as a prop (no hidden meaning in the use of the word "prop"; we al need something we can lean on.) (Oh Lord, help me! I've fallen into the Cake(wrecks) Hole.)
On a totally unrelated note, how much fun did we have with yesterday's post? 50+ comments! Thank you, Jen. Thank you!

I actually like the fish - not sure if that was the goal, but I like the fish :)

@MsTeacher3K: As they swim upstream, male salmon of at least one species change, growing a weird, red, misshapen upper jaw and a hunch back. That second cake is actually a bit less grotesque, IMO, than the real fish. (p.s. if anything BP "lost" overboard has made it that far upstream, we really *are* hashtag-screwed.)

@Alice Shortcake and Kay S: Sadly, it is I who first cry, "Hold, Enough!!"

No comments about surprise missing a 'r' in #3? Y'all are slacking. :)

Lol that suprise cake was certainly so shocked the r ran away from the cake. Wow I cannot stop laughing and wondering who orders these things?

Cake #5? That's my kind of apology.
