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? ;)

Getting Ahead

I've been feeling a bit blah this week. Call it the post-holidays slump (I miss my Christmas tree), call it the winter blues (It's SO FREAKING HOT), call it Al - whatever the reason, I'm more inclined to lie on the couch and cruise Etsy or play Mario Kart than any of my usual, marginally more productive activities.

So, as of right now I've decided to hop on the ol' treadmill desk and write something really positive for once. Something life-affirming. Something cheerful. Something to remind myself I've got nothing to complain about.

Right after I show you this:

(Hint: It's NOT a guy on his hands and knees under a sheet.)

Wait for it...waaaiiit for it...

Ahh, there's the screaming.

And, whaddaya know? I feel better already!

Nope, no complaints here!

Accidentally Insulting Birthday Cakes

I generally don't post name misspellings, because let's face it: there are people out there who spell Jennifer with a Q. Names are hard.

Still, sometimes a baker will botch a name in such a hilariously insulting way that it. is. magic.

 

Don't you agree, Whitney?

Talk about a bellyache.

 

And what "Bart" hasn't known this pain?

 

Believe it or not, this guy's not fat. He's just a little Cubby.

Good luck losing that nickname, though.

 

Is Beth happy they didn't dot that second "I"?

YOU BETCHA.

 

Funnily enough, I think Bobby did request some of these on his cake...

 

And perhaps the most subtle insult of all:

"IF that's your REAL name...."

 

On the one hand, kudos to this bakery for recognizing that a boy can like pink fairies:

On the other hand, little Jess was PISSED.

 

(If it's any consolation, Jess, they messed up Jeff's cake, too:)

 

And finally, while I don't know which name this Asian bakery thought they were writing on their display cake, I'm pretty sure it wasn't this one:

0.0

 

Thanks to Heather B., Susan F., Laura R., Beau S., Brian C., Anna G., Debi, Eric C., and Rebecca M., who will all henceforth be known as Chuckles.
