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? ;)

Creepy Poetry Counts, Too

Hey, it's National Haiku Writing Month! John! Quick! GET ME THE CREEPIEST CAKES YOU CAN FIND!

[shuffling virtual photographs]

Right.

LET'S DO THIS.

 

still life of swift death
or delicious iced dessert
cooler heads prevail

 

 

buttercream bunions
metaphoric masterpiece
wedding with cold feet

 

 

expressive beach tree
dawning realization
calls for a face palm

 

 

The hottest new trend:
flaming baby shower cakes
Welcome to hell, B.

 

 

Down where it's wetter
Clearly not all that better
Ariel impaled

 

 

drowning our sorrows
won't call for giant tampons
and please hold the jam

 

 

From 'death do us part'
to avant-garde home decor
Rough divorce, Carol?

Literally Just That

Jill ordered a birthday cake for her daughter Hope, then told the bakery she'd be in around 1pm to pick it up.

Now, I've seen it all, minions, but even I was not prepared for these icing choices:

Why. WHY.

 

Ryan L. writes, "A theatrical show I had been on tour with was celebrating its millionth audience member. The company manager gave specific instructions on what the baker should write."

Huh. I tried to understand why the baker wrote "musical symbols" while also drawing musical symbols but then my brain started to hurt and I had to stop.

 

And finally, Kyle B. wanted "Happy Birthday" on a rainbow cake.

Just that.

He watched the baker carefully write it all down on the order sheet, then later.... he got this:

Now, if you're curious what, exactly, the baker wrote on Kyle's order sheet, then GUESS WHAT.

I have that, too.

YAAAAAASSS

::head tilt::

Yup, that definitely clears things up.

 

Thanks to Jill B., Ryan L., & Kyle B. for today's serving of Just iced.

(Ok, that pun didn't really work, but I tried, dangit. I TRIED.)
