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? ;)

Return Of The Poo-Wangs!

When you think about it, turkey cakes have a lot going against them. I mean, most of the time they either look like poo:


So...a little stiff.


However, sometimes, if you're reeeally lucky, they look like both:

And the turkey poo-wang is born!


Now sit back, relax, and cue the immature, mind-in-the-gutter giggling!



*giggle giggle*


Heads up; this drumstick's a real handful:

*giggle snort*


And finally, these "cake slices" are looking a bit testy, if you ask me:

But maybe they're just a little cold.

How can wreckorators, or at least others in the bakery, not SEE that???

This is why we have pie for Thanksgiving. (Well, not really, we just like pie, but it makes a funny. We like those, too. We’re a bit of a geeky family. Heck, we have both Serenity and TARDIS Christmas tree ornaments!)

Looks like some 'stand up' work to me. Not 'hard' to see how a 'firm' turkey neck could excite most of us.

Seems to me these bakers need a lesson in anatomy. If God kept all this separate, why can't they?

On behalf of those of us with Turkey Birthdays (mine comes up next year!), I would call the person who gave me the "Happy Birthday You Turkey" cake the turkey. Boy, that thing is ugly. Also, why does it look like the turkey has an arm scratching, erm, its giblets?

Mere words cannot convey the joy, the excitement, the profound sense of wonder that I experience every year at the glorious depiction by this site of the annual migration of the Poo Wang Turkeys. I am thrilled to witness these magnificent creatures travelling to bakeries all over the YouSay, to dazzle, bewilder and discombobulate with their colourful plumage and hilariously faeco-phallic forms. Pity us Down Under, where we have nothing like it; I look forward to the year sometime in the future when POTUS presidentially pardons a particularly pendulous Poo Wang Turkey. VIVA LA WANG DE POO!

The second last one, the roast turkey. Yeah the drumsticks look like wangs, but what about the wings!? The one on this side looks like two fern leaves! Artistic skill aside, why TWO?!

Are you sure #7 isn't the scarecrow from the wizard of oz?
