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? ;)

Wedding Missed Marks, Vol. 458

Ever seen Cornelli lace? It's this pretty icing technique Jennifer wanted on her wedding cake:

 

But instead, her baker got a little really drunk and had a silly string party:

Bottom Tier: "Hey, I think I'm actually better after a few drinks!"

Middle Tier: "MOAR BEER MOAR STRINGY THINGS WHEEEE"

Top Tier: [face down on the counter, blindly spraying icing all over the room]

 

Meanwhile...

Kimberly decided on something a little more rustic for her wedding:

 

...but this really goes against the grain:

 

And Brittany T. ordered this loveliness for her wedding cake:

 

You must admit, her baker did a crackin' job:

o.0

Also, if you watch those embedded BBs long enough, I'm pretty sure they'll slowly sink into the cake and disappear, ala the La Brea Tar Pits.

Who's hungry?

 

Thanks to Jennifer H., Kimberly W., & Brittany T. for fueling bride-to-be nightmares everywhere.

Something Wrecky This Way Comes

(Warning: Naughty puns ahead. Hide your kids.)

 

Renee C. ordered this sandcastle cake for her beach-themed wedding:

 

So you know what's coming, right?

Heh. Aheh.

 

That's right: DIRTY PUNS ARE COMING.

The bride really got the shaft here, and it doesn't take a firm grip on reality to be testy over such a cock-up. Should she just suck it up and beat it? Is she nuts to take this blow so hard? Will nothing stop the erection of headstrong turrets?

No, that's a fallacy!*

Besides, I'm sure bakers will get the point in the end.
Aaand I'm done.

 

Thanks to Renee C. for the heads up!

Okay, okay. Now I'm done.

 

*'Cuz it's a phallus - see?
(OH COME ON THAT WAS GENIUS.)
