What's a Wreck?

A Cake Wreck is any cake that is unintentionally sad, silly, creepy, inappropriate - you name it.

But the #1 way you know Halloween is coming?

The Times of Wreckerators' Lives

There are moments we cherish, and then there are moments like these:


When the customer asks for music notes and you're all, "I'VE GOT THIS."

Yes, music notes. Honest.


When your own packaging shows just how badly your "unicorn cake" misses the mark:

I mean, really. It looks more like the cloud.


And my favorite:

When someone helpfully suggests you Google "baby girl cake" for decorating ideas:


Thanks to Anabell M., Alexandra S., & Charles F., who isn't too worried his baker will see this, I think for obvious reasons.
