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? ;)

I Mustache You A Question

It's the follicle sensation that's sweeping the nation: MUSTACHES!

That's right, bakers: Mustaches make everything friendlier and more approachable and not at all creepy!

"Psst. Hey. You.
"You wanna candy cane?"


Not to mention more appetizing!

(Yes, those are supposed to be 'staches. And the bow is plastic. Because of course it is.)


Mustaches are instantly recognizable:


And always make sense!


And sometimes travel in large packs for protection:

We call this "a flock of Sellecks."


So be proud of your mustaches, my friends - even if your baker's "drawing" is a little more literal than you'd like:

Trust me, Nichole M., you're better off this way.


Thanks to Anita H., Kristien B., Rebecca S., Joy W., & Nichole M. for the flavor saver favors.

Excellent captions as always, Jen. The "flavor saver favors" at the end was the nut sprinkles on top of the cherry and whipped cream.

The "flock of Sellecks" are clearly angry eyebrows that escaped Ma Mushroom's knitting machine.

Are you SURE those upside-down black 'staches aren't meant to be a flock of crows?

Maybe it's a van Gogh thing.

Come on, you can't prove it isn't!

Flock of Sellecks? You can spend your life just wishing, but I've got this photograph of poo to remind me.
