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? ;)

Friday Favs 3/24

Today's post is dedicated to the American Hero who added a bottle of Jack Daniel's to this display:

Bless you, sir/madam. Bless you.



Please tell me I'm not the only one who immediately saw this:

Just me?


Bakers, I imagine parenthood is tough enough. You really shouldn't go adding to the stress level with Prom goofs like this:

Please tell me this was delivered to her house.


Also, bakers, 'fess up: which one of you decided chocolate icing was a good call here?


Which brings me to the headline of the week:

A cake decorator with "no construction experience" building a sewage plant? CLEARLY this reporter has never read Cake Wrecks:



Cake decorators get all KINDS of experience constructing sewage plants.


Though I'm guessing/hoping these ones smell better.


"Howdy, doody."

A few of my favorite submissions this week:


I feel like this could apply to a few of you:

It's for your own safety, really. A cake a day keeps the road rage away!



Bakers are forever amazing me with their new decorating techniques.
For instance, did you know it's possible to pipe with semi-congealed Velveeta?

I mean, not well, but there it is!



Now let's all give a wave (heyooo) to the world's oldest Canadian Flag:

Or to the baker who literally thought this was what Barbara wanted.



I'll be honest, minions: this cake Mary J. ordered was a bit of a mess:

Great perplexing piles of pastel piping, Batman!

Yes, that's the one she wanted.


Still, what Mary ended up with was definitely worse:

Ew, Batman! Just... ew.


And finally, let's talk about these "tiger stripes" on a one-year-old's birthday cake, and how they might give "Sydni Is A Wild One" a whoooole new meaning:

Just me? And Danielle? Are we the only ones seeing this?

S'ok, Danielle; my lips are sealed.


Thanks to Jamie H., Alex A., Barbara T., Mary J., & Danielle D. for the walk on the vagina side.
