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? ;)

Come For The Hippo, Stay For The Barbarian Cream


Guys, if you ever want a 3D sculpted cake like this:


...and your baker claims she can make a cupcake cake (patooie!) look just like it, DO NOT BELIEVE HER.

On the plus side, I hear hippo skin rugs are all the rage now in child therapy sessions.



They asked for a book cake of The Great Gatsby:




You know, when *I* was a kid they didn't have all these new-fangled flavored fillings:




"Ok, ma'am, your cake has room for three lines of text."

"Great! I'd like 'Mazel Tov' on the first line, and 'Sara Rose' on the second."

"And for the third line?"

"Oh, just leave that blank."



Apparently Jennifer K's husband never gets her anything for their anniversary, so for the big 10 she got him a cake. That said this:

I really shouldn't be finding this so funny, should I?



"Hey, guys, is 'give up' all one word?

Is there a dash?

How do you spell it, again?

Is this right?

How about now?


Mmmm, sweet irony.

One Line Horror Stories

I haven't kept up: Do people still do that thing on Twitter where they write horror stories in only 144 characters? Or did the politics get so scary that no one could tell the difference? (HEYOO.)

Anyway, I always liked the idea of fitting as much story into as few words as possible, so let's see if BAKERS can scare us in, say, 10 words or less. Eh?



"You know, most of that is technically edible."

(It's the ones that are true that are the most terrifying.)


"What misspellings?"


"Everyone can relax, I fixed it!"


"That'll be $65.99."


And perhaps the most frightening thing of all to hear from a baker:

"Hey, can I borrow your shoe?"

(Yes it's a real shoe. Because of course it is.)
