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? ;)

Comb The Dessert!

Like so many brides, Robyn M. found the perfect cake for her wedding on Pinterest:

Now, let's be real, Robyn. That cake? THAT cake? There are like 4 bakers on the planet who can make that cake, with all its tiny, perfectly-pleated ruffles and its flawless ombré fade. Ok? Ok.

Anyway, I'm guessing Robyin already figured that out, because...

SHAPLOWM!!!!

Whoop.
DARE 'TIS.

(It's like a cheap lingerie shop exploded on it. Can't you almost feel the scratchy nylon? Mmmm.)

 

Ug, you know what? I can't even with this today. So...

 

Ugly:

 

Ugly:

 

REALLY ugly:

 

We've gone from suck to blow!

 Which means it's ugly.

 

Aaaaand... ugly:

DONE!

You may now eat the cake.

Or... not.

 

Thanks to Robyn M., Mallory M., Angela B., Anna W., Anony M., & Richard B. for combing the dessert. (Eh? EH?!) Now... check, please.
