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? ;)

Happy Towel Day!

Hey, hoopy froods, it's Towel Day! This is the day when we celebrate hitchhiking the galaxy, Pan-Galactic Gargle Blasters, and, of course, potted petunias.

I wonder if they'll be friends with me?


So, grab your towel...

Hey, even the terrible ones have fringe benefits.


...and sit back and relax while I serve up something that is almost, but not quite, entirely unlike a teapot.


This hypnotized bunny rabbit is mostly harmless.

He may also be a teapot:

But that's pretty improbable.


Besides, it could always be worse.

Like so:

My, mister teapot, what an unfortunately colored spout you have.

Hey, here's a tip:

So, in conclusion:


Oh, and:

"Want to see my spaceship?"

At least the maker of that 2nd 'teapot' can follow whatever template pattern they are all trying to use, even if the template-maker must surely be trolling wreckorators with a pink, er, 'spout' looking like that? But why am I even analysing CCCs (patooie!)? Thanks for the hilarious Hitchhiker's references - I need more of those in my life!

That "hypnotized bunny rabbit" looks like one of Rayman's Raving Rabbids.

All those Hitchhiker's references! Thank you so much! Wonder what Marvin the Paranoid Android would make of those cakes....

I'll make sure I avoid whatever bakery was "organizing" their teapots like that.

FYI the “Terrible Towel” is a Pittsburgh Steelers thing. The Fans wave them. I enjoy CakeWrecks so much!

The Terrible Towel is a Steelers' fan thing.

As others have mentioned, Steelers Terrible Towel, but the towel looks nothing like that mess. Nothing. I suspect the baker was from Baltimore (ravens). (Or maybe Cleveland?)

Those teapots...

But does the last cake come in 6-packs?

I used my travel towel to clean up spilled cake today. How’s that for a Towel Day coincidence, Cake Wrecks? Yes I really carry a small pink towel around for emergencies, oh and occasional hand-to-hand combat.

What a fallacy..... Might even call it a PHALLUS I SEE......

Are we really sure those are teapots? Lol I can't even imagine what they thought they were doing there but if those are teapots I think I am switching to coffee forever.

What is in the centers of the potted petunias?

Unfortunate Spout could be the title of the first album by a band called the Baby Carrot Jockeys...

And for those of us (also) in the Discworld fandom, the Glorious 25th of May is commemorated by the wearing of the lilac. But only if you were there.

Those of us who hail from both camps sometimes carry a lilac-colored towel. Because why limit yourself to one fandom?
