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? ;)

Oooh, Hard One

YOU GUYS. I found it: the ultimate litmus test for a pure mind.

Here's how it works:

If you can look at the following cake without immediately side-eying the person next to you and/or laughing like a scandalized hyena, you pass.

Ready?

GO:

Oh, and if you see the name "Emma," you pass, too.

If, however, you see a Simpson Schlong with the word WEED written on it, welcome. You're one of us.

Get Used To (More) Disappointment

What's that? You want more "Missed Marks" wrecks?

AS YOU WISH.

 

First up, Randee C. ordered this simple zebra-stripe cake from her local bakery:

 

... and ended up with something only a finger-painting preschooler could love:

Zebras of unusual stripes?
I don't think they exist.


Next, Tahneea made two notable discoveries: first, this gorgeous cake:

There's a shortage of perfect ruffles in the world. 'Twould be a pity to damage yours.

 

And second, a use for leftover coffee filters!

 

"I do not mean to pry, but you don't by any chance happen to have six hundred coffee filters on hand?"

"Do you always begin conversations this way?"

"YUP." 

 

And finally, Mel D. ordered this beauty for her wedding:

She tells me her baker showed her an impressive portfolio of gorgeous cakes, which made the final reveal on her big day that much more, well, you know ...

INCONCEIVABLE.

 

And ... EMBIGGIFY!

On the plus side, that silver glitter really clumps together nicely.

 

Bye bye, brides! Have fun ordering your cakes!

("Think they'll be wrecks?"

"If not, it'll be a miracle.") 

 

BYEEE!
