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? ;)

A Failure To Communicate, Vol. 243

I like how the only thing legible is the one word NOT supposed to be there:

 

Erin K. wanted her daughter's cake to be oriented vertically, or portrait-style, but the baker wasn't getting it.

"You know, the long way?"

*headdesk*

 

When you want a big 75, NOT a "big 75."

Can I quote you on that?

 

In fact, a lot of butchered instructions end up as new nick names:

Give up?

They wanted "thank you" written in pink.

 

And this one didn't want any gel icing:

 

Here's a blast from the past: a Historical Society hosted a "President's Tea."

Thank goodness they weren't screening old 80s TV shows there, too!

Can you imagine if it'd been the "President's Tea & A-Team Party?"

 

Now imagine, if you will, the ordering process that resulted in this cake:

I'm picturing a Monty Python sketch, myself.

"No, I want you to STAY HERE, and write the names underneath!"

"So I'm to write these names twice and capitalize 'Underneath.' Got it."

"No, no, it's quite simple. Write 'Happy Birthday' once, and the names underneath."

"If, if, uh... If, if, uh... Oh! Can I write the names three times... IF I use extra sprinkles?"

"AAAAAAUUGH!"

PLAY OF THE (BAKERY) GAME

John and I play a lot of video games because we make excellent life choices, and last night was a particularly Jen kind of game. I was completely lost, fumbling around and stuck on a wall, muttering "Where am I? What room is this? WHAT IS HAPPENING?" - all in a game I've been playing for 2 years now - and John joked, "You watch, you'll get Play of the Game for this."

AND I DID.

Meaning 11 real live strangers on the internet watched an instant replay of my character walking into a wall and spinning in circles to the sound of a triumphant victory fanfare, all with my user name emblazoned onscreen in giant glowing letters.

John actually got light-headed, he laughed so hard. I had to remind him to breathe.

My point here, of course, is that brainless moments of personal embarrassment should always be witnessed - nay, celebrated - by strangers on the internet.

OH HEY LOOK:

 

 

 

 

And my personal favorite:

[plays Triumphant Victory Fanfare]

 

Thanks to Katherine V., Carolyn H., Mindy V., Stacy M., & Alicia F. for making me feel much better about my video game skills. And yes, to my fellow gamers looking for confirmation: it *was* Overwatch. TOR MAIN FOREVAHHHHH.
