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? ;)

These Wrecks Have Got Your Number

So there's this hilarious wrecky outbreak happening across our nation's bakeries, but it requires a little explanation before you can truly appreciate how funny it is.

Here's the deal:

See that? That's an edible image sheet. These sheets are supposed to work like individual stickers: you cut them up and only use the numbers & phrases you need.

 

Instead, bakers just keep plastering the entire sheet on a cake.

At first I figured it HAD to be intentional. Maybe they give you an edible marker with the cake, so you circle the right numbers?

 

Then I saw this:

You've gotta wonder: what does the baker THINK is happening here?

 

Or how about this one:

That's right; the baker cut up the sheet so it would all (kind of) fit.

Love the random "th" sticking out of the bottom.

 

I think most people are too confused to understand what's wrong with these cakes, but enough of you are still sending them in. So, I've just been collecting them:

 

Biding my time...

 

Waiting for the right moment to finally ask:

Seriously, bakers?

SERIOUSLY??

 

Thanks to Heather W., Angela F., Heather C., Ashley M., Emily F., Melissa L., & Heather D. for the big pile of sheet... cakes.

Settle A Bet For Me

CW reader Tati snapped a photo of something... interesting... on display in a local bakery's window.

Now, John and I have studied this thing at length (FOR SCIENCE!!), and unfortunately we can't seem to agree on what, exactly, it's supposed to be.

Here's where you guys come in. (But not literally, I hope. Because ew.)

Ok, first impression: Is this a bleeding butt, or bleeding boobs?

 

How 'bout from this angle?

 

Now, the real question:

 

Thanks, Tati. I think.
