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? ;)

The Times of Wreckerators' Lives

There are moments we cherish, and then there are moments like these:


When the customer asks for music notes and you're all, "I'VE GOT THIS."

Yes, music notes. Honest.


When your own packaging shows just how badly your "unicorn cake" misses the mark:

I mean, really. It looks more like the cloud.


And my favorite:

When someone helpfully suggests you Google "baby girl cake" for decorating ideas:


Thanks to Anabell M., Alexandra S., & Charles F., who isn't too worried his baker will see this, I think for obvious reasons.
