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? ;)

John, I love how all your stick figures look like they're angry and glaring all the time! :)

Pikachu is annoyed .... He's only a picture ON a picture of a CAKE with a picture of Pikachu.
=^-.-^= "CUT!" (Could I have a piece from the white part? Please?)

Whenever I see John's stick figures at the top of the post, I start smiling.

I love the blue frosting balloons on TOP of the edible image. Like that makes it all better somehow...

it could have been worse... the cake could have actually looked like a picture (a la the thumb drive cakes!)

Now print out this image and get it put on a cake - and again, and again, an infinite recursion of cakes with pictures of cakes on them!

The 'aden' naming things has gone too far, or I'm way too old and you should get off my lawn. Either way, give me a corner piece with ALL the frosting!

I just love how much effort some bakers put into their cakes.

I've been laughing a full 5 minutes and I'm not sure there's an end in sight. πŸ˜‚

Oh I love the stick figures lol. I wouldn't be surprised if this actually is really how that wreck was made. I just hope the customer said no thanks when they saw it lol.

I have never laughed more a cake wreck than I have today. Thanks for the entertainment, you made my day!
