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? ;)

Redefining "Poo Poo Head"

We all knew this was coming, minions.

With the simple-but-lovely unicorn cake still all the rage:

[By Vero Cakes]

...it was only a matter of time until a baker tried to make one on a cookie cake.

 

And to be fair, it almost - almost - worked.

Well, kinda.

Yep.

It's a Cookie Cake Poo-nicorn.

 

Thanks to Carey G. and everyone else who did NOT buy this cake... for not giving a crap. [Ba dum BUM!]

Expectation VS Wreck-ality

What They Wanted:

 

What They Got:

Oh dear. As we say in the South, "GOBRESS their heart."

 

Christina ordered a really gorgeous Frozen design:

 

...but unfortunately her own cake fell flat:

Maybe it's just cold?

(Bah dum CHA.)

 

And finally, you've really got to respect a baker who looks at this cake:

 

...and then says to their customer, "Not only can I make that exact wine bottle cake, I can even hand pipe the label."

Wowza.

 

Thanks to A., Christina R., & Christine for keeping that bottled up for us.
