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? ;)

Sexy Mommy Knows Best

Bakers, you're going to have to trust me on this, but there's a difference - a BIG difference - between "sexy mama,' and "sexy mommy."

Especially on a "Hoppy 21th" birthday cake.

Just... no. Stop it.


And speaking of uncomfortable sexy things, you know that feeling when you're staring at a pair of thong underwear for way too long wondering why there's SO MUCH HAIR on the bottom and then suddenly you're like, "Oh, it's a hat." ?

That was me today before lunch.


And finally, there are lots of Marks and Marcs out there, but today we're wishing a "Happy Brithday" to Marc-with-the-C:

That's right, live it up, all you Marcs! We could use more C-men in our lives.


Thanks to Kelly M., Lori H., & Shelia W. for C-ing what I did there.

1) Sexy Mommy? If you're only twenty one, your kids would be too young to even order a cake for you. And how would they know what sexy was?
2) A hat? Thong underwear? Looks like a bird's nest hanging from a branch way up in the mountainous rain forest. It's swinging in the clouds that are filled with...pepperoni?
3) Obviously this fellow was a life-long sailor. Maybe he's the guy Hemingway wrote about.

Perhaps the first cake was ordered for Oedipus:

From the Bible to the popular song,
There's one theme that we find right along.
Of all ideals they hail as good,
The most sublime is Motherhood.

There was a man, oh, who it seems,
Once carried this ideal to extremes.
He loved his mother and she loved him,
And yet his story is rather grim.

There once lived a man named Oedipus Rex.
You may have heard about his odd complex.
His name appears in Freud's index
'Cause he loved his mother.
Theme Song for Oedipus Rex - Tom Lehrer

Maybe the first cake was meant to use “mami” instead? In that case, it deserves a double facepalm, because someone was probably “correcting” the spelling.

Still cross eyed from trying to read that first one lol. All of these have me laughing so hard right now.

21th is one-and-twentieth, obviously.

My son thought the “hat” was a Jamaican pizza thong
