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? ;)

Come For The Hippo, Stay For The Barbarian Cream

 

Guys, if you ever want a 3D sculpted cake like this:

 

...and your baker claims she can make a cupcake cake (patooie!) look just like it, DO NOT BELIEVE HER.

On the plus side, I hear hippo skin rugs are all the rage now in child therapy sessions.

They asked for a book cake of The Great Gatsby:

NAILED IT.

You know, when *I* was a kid they didn't have all these new-fangled flavored fillings:

"Ok, ma'am, your cake has room for three lines of text."

"Great! I'd like 'Mazel Tov' on the first line, and 'Sara Rose' on the second."

"And for the third line?"

"Oh, just leave that blank."

Apparently Jennifer K's husband never gets her anything for their anniversary, so for the big 10 she got him a cake. That said this:

I really shouldn't be finding this so funny, should I?

 ***

 

"Hey, guys, is 'give up' all one word?

Is there a dash?

How do you spell it, again?

Is this right?

How about now?

OH FORGET IT."

Mmmm, sweet irony.

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!]
