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? ;)

Penguins? I thought it was vultures.

The last cake looks more like vultures than penguins - just the thing to scare little kids

Hah! I actually looked at the last picture and thought "Blues Brothers" before I even read the following caption!

And now that will be stuck in my head all day, lol. The penguins are epic :)

Is that half-moon thing supposed to be a snowman? What's on his head - salsa? Blick!

The one with the corner out of it looks like a display cake from Costco - they are not for sale, it’s to give you an idea of what the inside looks like.

Legit question- what's wrong w/ the Merry Christmas Ornament cake from Costco? Yes, the corner is cut off, but they do that to the store display cake to show the inside. Maybe taken out of context it seems strange, but it works in the store.

1) I've "spotted" the rare, hybrid cow-pig. Looks like it belongs on the Island of Misfit Cakes.
2) I've heard about flat-head catfish and flat-head screwdrivers, but a flat-head snowman? What, did he get in the way of the snow plow?
3) Who is this Mary Christmas? Is she Santa's youngest daughter? (And this cake - I've heard of cutting corners, but why take it literally?)
4) A card would have been even cheaper, and easier to give.
5) Why is Santa blushing? Did he witness some hanky-panky at the reindeer games?
6) They're here to make you an offer you can't refuse.

Talk about cutting corners!

The penguins look like Blues Brothers. Cute. (-ish.)

December 6, 2017 | Unregistered Commentersendingtheclowns

HAHAHA! I busted out laughing at the "It comes this way" and "blazing cheeks". My co-workers already think I'm a little off, what's a bit of random bursts of laughter from my office gonna hurt?

btw, I shall enjoy singing this carol during my church's Christmas Eve service. ;-)

Í thought it was Zz Top with backup.

For a second I thought the penguins were The Ramones.

December 6, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterHilary

@Hilary: THANK YOU! Scrolling down, I was like, "Seriously? NO ONE else here is getting a Ramones First Album Cover vibe??"

Fourth Cake: at first (and frankly, second and third) glance, I thought the blue dots on the li'l icing "package" was a swastika. Once again, I plead years of unapologetic hedonism.

Your Pal,

Nothing like a bunch of singing vultures to make my Christmas scary and not merry at all lol.
