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? ;)

Dolly Wants To Play

There really is nothing more terrifying than a creepy baby doll. I'm serious. They freaked me out as a kid and still manage to scare the pants off me today, what with their static staring eyes and little outstretched zombie arms and all.

Thankfully, there's a new baking trend that makes these dolls waaaaaay less creepy. (I'm lying; these are terrifying. Proceed with caution.)

Don't... make... eye contact...

All tucked in, and ready to kill.

 

"Ooh! I'll take that corner piece..."

"...and an arm. But that's it. I'm dieting."

 

Note: This next cake is not to scale.

Usually the pacifier is much larger.

 

Is it impolite to suck frosting off the baby's legs?

It is? Poor taste, huh?

...

Ok, what about its head?

...

No? Fine. I'll just collect my watermelon and show myself out.

 

Thanks, Valentina, Liz C., Carrie J., and Dana S.! Ya know, these cakes started out as creepy , but now they're looking kinda DELICIOUS. Mmmm.... babies.... grlslgrsagagagle.....

Leggo My Logo

Susan S. ordered a birthday cake with the Ohio State logo on it, which looks like this:

Think something could have gone wrong?

 

Here's your sign:

"STOP!
"In the naaaame of love!"

 

Apparently this is a high school logo, though Missy didn't mention which one:

 

Now the baker reversed the colors, sure, but the W was her real crowning achievement:

JK!!
LOL

 

Ok, Kassandra, tell us what you want. What you really, really want.

Roger that!

 

Thanks to Susan, Missy, and Kassandra for spelling it all out for us.
