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? ;)

Literally? LITERALLY.

If Cake Wrecks has taught us anything, it's that you have to be really careful what you say to a baker:

Houston, we have a problem.

 

Insert snarky comment here: ...........

 

This one I'm actually Ok with - but only because the baker included some this time.

 

Ah, the perils of buying a cake and picking it up later:

(Do you think the baker write5 all hi5/her Ss like thi5?)

 

"So, whaddaya want?"

"Hang on, where?"

 

Wow. That is SO...well, you know.

 

I guess we should be glad these mistakes are on cake, though, which is easily disposed of. I hear tanker trucks are way more difficult:

Well, maybe not if you have a match, but still.

 

And what does it say when this pops up in front of your kids' school?

I get the feeling this "shold read" something else.

 

So the next time you see a literal LOL iced on a cake, just remember:

Somewhere there are people with this frame on their mantels. 

(Although I bet they got it for cheap!)

Maps, Minecraft, & Minnie, Oh My!

Grace wanted this map cake of the U.S.:

 

But got something in a terrible state:

I'm not sure which one, but I think we can agree all these states are terrible.

 

Kelly asked for this Minecraft cake for her son's fifth birthday:

 

It... didn't square up:

 

And finally, Rebecca ordered this sweet Minnie Mouse:

 

But instead, got a major mess:

o.0

I can't stop staring at the hair-like black wires. At first I thought those were supposed to be her arms?
I mean, they're not, but now you can't unsee it, either, so... you're welcome. [evil grin]

 

Thanks to Grace E., Kelly E., & Rebecca O. for ratting Minnie out.
