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? ;)

That's One Small Leap For Jen...

John: "What are you working on?"

Jen: "Finding cakes for National Moon Day."

John: "Ok... so what's that, and what does it have to do with Moon Day?"

Jen: [clicking] "Hang on, you'll see."

John: "This still doesn't..."

Jen: "Waaaait for it..."

John: "OH. Moon day, heh. But see, I think you may have mis..."

Jen: "Dude, you totally just said, 'Butt see'.

Both together: "Bwahahaa!"

John: "But seriously, you've got the wrong Moon Day. It's supposed to be the Moon Moon day. The one in the sky.

Jen: [still clicking]

John: "Jen."



John: "You win. Go back to butts."

Well, it looks like Jen is getting a little behind in her work. I'm surprised not to see any more cracks about these than there were. With all these pictures, it does appear you were bringing up the rear. And you're obviously making the bakers the butt of all your jokes. But it's good to see you're getting to the bottom of this debacle. Maybe we could get a bunch of comedians together and give these bakers a rump roast. I bet Fanny Mae could be the emcee.

Does anyone else hear the Dragnet theme? You know - bum, bum, bum, bum...bum, bum, bum, bum, bum..

An interesting peach cake surrounded by strawberries. Wish I could read the Chinese writing on it.

M-O-O-N, that spells wreckage.

This is not the first time this has happened to me, but usually I have to be pregnant or drunk to have real deja vu. I could swear I saw this Moon Day post Wednesday, when I last checked your blog. I particularly recall the giant peach with the Chinese script on it.

Damn. Maybe I should sign out and come back in a few minutes, when the world and the wrecks will have had a chance to go back to normal. Whatever that is.

Oh all those.. moons that aren't so lovely to see lol. That new moon cake really had me laughing.

What?!? It's "Moon Day" and there are no "Hot Cross BUNS"??

The pimple on the second to last makes me long for a blackhead extraction cake. Maybe one with a little recorder tucked inside and outfitted with a sensor to play ASMR sounds when the cake senses someone is cutting a slice.

Is it just me or does that one spotty butt cake look like the guy has one bum cheek and one rear breast? *shudder*
