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? ;)

Our World Cup Runneth Over

Bakers, let's talk about soccer.

Because of all your balls...

...the soccer ball seems to be the most difficult for you guys to grasp.


And believe me, when it comes to ball grasping...

...we want you to have a firm grip on the situation.

(John: "Uh, I think that's supposed to be a basketball cou..."
Me: "SHHHH.")


For example, some of your balls are too fuzzy:


While others are lumpy and uneven:


Some of your balls are too small:


And others... well... are they supposed to be that color?


Look, bakers, we know that Soccer balls come in all shapes and sizes, and each is uniquely beautiful in its own way.

Unless it's this way:

Seriously, man, put that away. You're just embarrassing yourself.


And to all you World Cup fans out there:

Hang loose, you crazy nuts, you!


Thanks go Andrea C., Jennipher D., Charesse, Becky N., Diane L., Amy N., Abi H., & Ilana W. for the balls-to-the-wall excitement.

Missed Marks To Make You Go NOOOOOOOO

Anna D. ordered a cake to look like this top tier:

So... pink and blingy. Gotcha.


Now, before I show you what she got, have you ever seen those stress toys with the eyes that pop out when you squeeze them?

You have?

Ok, cool.

Just curious.



You can scroll down now.

Deep breaths, Jen, deep breaths. It's NOT a living thing, and those bubble things are NOT growing and/or pulsating. They're NOT.

You know what, let's just keep scrolling.



Speaking of cakes that look unfortunately skin-like, Cassie P. ordered this adorable giraffe cake:


...but instead, she got this:

There's a sound for this cake, and it goes something like:



And finally, how about a wedding cake? Wedding cakes are always fun.

OK, so Jessica ordered this cheery sunflower number:



...and I'm happy to report that the baker was extremely thorough, and managed to get everything - with only one tiny exception - entirely and completely wrong.

I think your baker grabbed someone else's cake and jammed in those sunflower headlights last second, Jessica.

But on the plus side, if you back up and squint a little - or a lot - it's totally smiling at us.


Thanks to Anna D., Cassie P., & Jessica C. for all having rhyming last initials; that makes it more fun for me, see? TEEHEE.
