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? ;)

Oh Stuff It

Unfortunately for us all, turkey cakes are a thing.
I guess I can live with this, but why - WHY - do bakers have to add the stuffing?

"Ahh, the ol' 'Fido's head exploded' design. Nice!

 

But can we add a few blood stains?"

"PERFECT."

 

"Now how about some moldy green bits? And can we make the turkey into a dirty paper bag?"

"PERFECTER."

 

"Next, throw in a weird body cavity that makes everyone vaguely uncomfortable..."

"Oooh, and is that dog food in there? I LIKE. Give me more.

MORE!!"

"Yes, yes, yes! AHAHAHAA!!!"

 

"But now I'm tired of stuffing. Let's go back to making those weird round ball things."

 

 

 

 

(Hey. Waaaiit a second.....)

AHHHHH FOOLED YOU!!

 

Thanks to Karen M., Karen L., Meg, Amy B., Terri W., Jessica C., Laura W., Rebekah, & Cortney of Rock City Cake Co. for guaranteeing I'll never look at a turkey cake the same way again. (And for having a wicked sense of humor!)

Obama's New Groove

One of Mike B.'s friends ordered an Obama cake for another, more politically-inclined friend. You know, something like this:

But apparently the baker didn't hear him right over the phone, because instead...

they got this:

Yes, a llama. I swear I'm not making this up.

According to Mike, once she discovered the mistake the baker offered to replace the cake for free, but the guys wouldn't let her. Because, c'mon, that is one awesome llama.

 

Hey Mike B, squeakity squeakers squeak squeak 'um.
