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? ;)

English Done Good!

When I first saw that today is English Language Day, my first thought was, "Huh. Do we really need a day for that?"

Then I saw this cake congratulating a team on a "Tennifer Seasons."

(Is there a translator in the house?)

So yes, past Jen from 10 minutes ago, apparently we DO need an English Language Day.


After all, it's one thing to be able to write in English, but another thing entirely to understand it.

Le sigh.

Happy English Language day, ya filthy logophiles. May your many and varied intercourses be ever enlightening.


And thanks to Christy C., Ken, Alan & Jennifer, Libby S., Kate H., Lina E., & Leigh S. for going over the top.

1) Maybe this was a cake for John (thoJ) and that one word isn't "tennifer", but it was supposed to be "Jennifer", and this was congratulating him on his long and happy marriage to Jen.
2) I'm trying to figure out if this was a lisp and therefore a commentary on Amy's morality, or if she has really large shins.
3) OUCH!
4) This one was about a rather drab flying machine.
5) You're welxome.
6) This one was probably for a symbiant who has been in their host for six years.
7) I'm not touching this one. As Porky Pig would say, "That's all, folks!"

……………with WHAT-the-heck did they "decorate" that 2nd-last cake? Is that a Lion Fish dorsal fin? The spines are deadly!!!

I think "Thanx" is deliberate, much like "Kool" would be.

"The Shinning"--a Groundskeeper Willie quote?

"AIS FOR AIRPLAIN" -- that would be about those autonomous aircraft?

I can't even read the first one. Somebody - please?

Also, I think LIna's cake has an angry lizard inside.

Tennifer Seasons... she was on... what show was that? Don't tell me, I'll get it... Fool Horse? Nonono...

I agree with Classic Steve. "Thanx" is deliberate "slang". The first time I saw it was in a note written to me by an Englishman. So it must be "okay", right?

As for "AIRPLAIN", isn't that a budget airline?

The shinning cake had me laughing so hard thinking about the Simpsons episode. I loved that episode. This cake however I am not quite so fond of lol.

Tennifer is actually Terrifer, Terrific mispelled.

If I ever need a stage name, "Tennifer Seasons" is absolutely going on the shortlist.
