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? ;)

This Is Gonna Be GOOD: Happy Cake "Decorating" Day!

It's National Cake Decorating Day, bakers, so let's go over those basics again!

 

Remember, it all starts with a good foundation:

 

...and a smooth, even application of icing.

 

When it comes time to decorate, no need to get fancy!
Just stick with something simple, like a butterfly.

 

Or, uh, maybe something easier, like flowers.

>.<

 

Or... I dunno... balloons? Yeah. You can't screw up balloons.

Never mind.

 

And lastly, let's talk penmanship.

Just skip that for now. And always.

 

Tell you what, bakers, just cover the whole thing with an edible image, ok? PROBLEM SOLVED.

-.-

Step 1: Forcefully connect head to desk Step
2: Repeat

Possibly the Most Depressing Cake I Have Ever Seen

Ah, birthdays: A time of celebration, friends, cake, and, of course...

...dying animals.

Notice how, even if the elephant were able to escape the tar pit/Swamps of Sadness, there's a lion coming over to finish him off. See, that kind of thing sends a message. A message that says,

A) this baker has clearly never seen The Neverending Story, and

B) "Don't forget the tissues, Mom & Dad, 'cuz this'll make little Suzie cry for sure."

 

Josh W., I may or may not be having Artax flashbacks, and I may or may not need some of those tissues. Also, John won't stop singing The Circle of Life. That's definitely not helping.
