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 One's For Ken

Patricia L. asked for "musical things" like notes and bass clefs on her friends' birthday cake.

She got this:

Sing it with me, now:  

"I knew you weren't treble when you walked in
So shame on you, yeah!"

:D

The baker told Kimberley F. her cake was too small to fit "happy birthday" on it, so Kimberly said,

"Well, since my sister is turning 45 you can just put a big four and five on it, instead."

"four and five" = 11 letters
"happy birthday" = 13 letters

And finally, to this day, Mary and Gus still don't know who Ken is:

What do you know, Ken?
WHAT DO YOU KNOW?!

 

Thanks to Patricia, Kimberley, & Mary and Gus for keeping the mystery alive.

If You Don't Start Singing "Pretty Woman" After This Then Something Is Wrong With You

Jenny B. ordered a congratulations cake for one of her co-workers, who'd just gotten a new job. It was a big sheet cake, so she asked the baker to add some balloons and a “we’ll miss you" in the corner.

Now, as I was reading Jenny's e-mail I thought I knew where this was going - and boy, was I wrong:

 

 

Thanks to Jenny and her co-workers, who requested I clarify they aren't THOSE kind of working girls.
