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? ;)

Take A Bow, Then Take Notes, Bakers

♫ Why is there so much stuff
Wrong with this rainbow?

 

And what's with the spiky side?

 

♪ Rainbows have colors
In a certain order

But rainbows have no black to hide

 

♫ Still these are sold
and if you can believe it

 

There's more in this song, wait and see!

 

♪ Someday we'll find one
A rainbow confection

 

The bakers, Vince Vega, and me:

 

Thanks to Anony M., Becca C., Leslie R., Aimee S., Bethany K., Judy C., and all of these bakers for making Kermit cry. You monsters.

Get Used To (More) Disappointment

What's that? You want more "Missed Marks" wrecks?

AS YOU WISH.

 

First up, Randee C. ordered this simple zebra-stripe cake from her local bakery:

 

... and ended up with something only a finger-painting preschooler could love:

Zebras of unusual stripes?
I don't think they exist.


Next, Tahneea made two notable discoveries: first, this gorgeous cake:

There's a shortage of perfect ruffles in the world. 'Twould be a pity to damage yours.

 

And second, a use for leftover coffee filters!

 

"I do not mean to pry, but you don't by any chance happen to have six hundred coffee filters on hand?"

"Do you always begin conversations this way?"

"YUP." 

 

And finally, Mel D. ordered this beauty for her wedding:

She tells me her baker showed her an impressive portfolio of gorgeous cakes, which made the final reveal on her big day that much more, well, you know ...

INCONCEIVABLE.

 

And ... EMBIGGIFY!

On the plus side, that silver glitter really clumps together nicely.

 

Bye bye, brides! Have fun ordering your cakes!

("Think they'll be wrecks?"

"If not, it'll be a miracle.") 

 

BYEEE!
