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? ;)

A Spirited Similarity

Ever wonder what it'd look like if famous characters came back as wrecky ghost cakes?

Yeah, me neither.

But I guess these bakers did!

 

A ghost called Jayne:

"All this booing is damaging my calm."

 

Spy VS Spy:

[mimes dropping a giant bomb on both]

 

Aquaman:

Sounds fishy.

 

Pac-Man:

 

 

A Pac-Man ghost.

So meta.

 

A garden slug:
(Just go with it.)

C'mon, bakers. Slugs? Really?

 

A door mat:

Ok, now we're just getting ridiculous.

 

A roll of toilet paper:

Srsly??

(Let's not ponder too long what the little ghost on top is.)

 

And finally,

The Ghosts of Toilet Water Passed:

You could say they've been circling the drain for some time now.

[Ba dum BUM!]

5 Bakers Who Bit Off More Than They Could Chew

My friends, cake decorating can be hard. Why do you think we have so much material? But bakers can make their jobs a lot easier by just knowing their limitations.

For instance, bakers, say someone asks you to make a groom's cake that looks like their BMW:

...but you're just figuring out what "edible markers" are.

 

In that case, maybe say no.

See how much better that would have been?

 

Ok, now let's practice together! I'll play the customer.

Hi! Can you make me a cake that looks like this shoe?

 

Now you say, "No. No, I can't."

 

I'd really love Maleficent on a cake! Can you do that?

 

"No. No, I can't."

 

Aw, then how about Tinkerbell?

 

"Sure! No probl... I mean, no. No, I can't."

 

 

See how easy that is? And hey, being able to say no to orders you can't do will give you more time for the ones you can!

Or you could just fill the donuts.

 

Thanks to Lesley H., Molly H., Sheyla S., John A., & Michelle R., who advises steering clear of the Stay Puft donuts, since we all know where THAT leads.
