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? ;)

How Many Blogs Have Tribute Parties?

Not many, I'm thinking. I mean, most people go to parties to drink heavily, perch awkwardly on couch armrests, and play Scrabble. (Or is that just parties I go to?) But not Wrecks readers - nosirree. They get together to drink heavily and make Wreckplicas!

This is the handiwork of Wreckerators Marilyn N. and friends. Look familiar? And oh yes, it is a CCC: these girls didn't overlook any details. I think the coconut icing and pink bow with "it a gril!" inscription really add something, too.

Then there's this one from Mary C.:

It's even a "real" Wreck; she and her friends brought in a photo of the original Tom Selleck cake to the bakery and had a decorator copy it. Sure, the chest hair can't compare, but I think you'll agree that this brooding Neanderthal Tom is a real piece of work.

And Maggie H. provided her boyfriend Cody with a birthday Wreckplica of his favorite Wreck:

Wow, the carrot jockeys have grown, Maggie! ;) Glad to see they haven't lost their mohawks, though.

Good work, everyone!


What Do You Get for an Investment Banker?

Why, this cake, of course:

Sarah P.'s brother got this cake for her husband, an investment banker. It's like the Sci-Fi channel meets WWF: the earth has cracked open, and a demonic blood-sucking leech has attacked one of the wrestlers.

OH, wait - I just got the connection! Blood sucking leech/investment banker! How did I miss that?


And now a word from our new Director of Sensitivity, Pat:

"Jen in no way means to imply, allude to, or otherwise state that all investment bankers are blood sucking leeches or, conversely, that all blood sucking leeches are investment bankers. Any and all similarities between the aforementioned “Investment Bankers” and “Blood Sucking Leeches” may be purely coincidental and should be disregarded unless, of course, the above parties wish to be known as each other, in which case we, as members of the “World Community” should accept and embrace that choice."
