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? ;)

Mary ordered a cupcake cake (patooie!) in the shape of a number 6 for her daughter, but I guess the baker ran out of cupcakes, so...

This birthday is brought to you by 3/4 of the number 0.

Thanks for nothing.

 

How Twitter has ruined us all:

And finally, Catherine told the baker her son's name was "Stephen with a PH."

She got this:

They got sprinkles.

Mm, crunchy.

 

They wanted this:

 

They got... this:

("Hang on, you can still see some icing. BRING MORE FLOWERS!")

 

And finally,

Jessica wanted this:

... but what she got was so bad that her photographer decided it'd be too much to have the whole cake in frame, and so focused on some guy in the background checking his phone instead:

Good job, Jessica's photographer.

 

Thanks to Anony M., Sonya J., & Jessica K., who like to think that guy is reading Cake Wrecks, because, dude, SO META.
