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? ;)

These are wonderful! I keep scrolling through them to look at each one again! Yay for Sunday Sweets!

As I looked at each cake I was mentally singing the song - thanks for the cake pictures and the memory of a wonderful movie.

Taste the rainbow.

Nothing makes me weepier than Rainbow Connection. One of the first songs my little ballerina danced to 30 something years ago. Sung by one of my favorite characters/people ever, with some of the sweetest lyrics ever written. And the cakes are pretty awesome, as well. <3 Happy Sunday, all.

I love Kermit!

May 20, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterLady Anne

So that made me cry. The good kind of crying.

May 20, 2018 | Unregistered Commentercarisa

This took me longer to read through than normal because it's a slow tempo song.

May 20, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterDiane

Yes, I heard that in Kermit's voice and it gave me a little quiver, a little chill, at the end. Beautiful.

It's hard to fathom that the unicorn in actually a cake! I think my favorite one is the one that is tiers of bunt (sp?) cake filled with flowers.

May 21, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterIma

Beautiful! And, who didn't sing this to themselves while reading? I know I did

Cake Wrecks just made me cry. Is that a record? Do I win something?

May 21, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterTrudy
