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? ;)

Maps, Minecraft, & Minnie, Oh My!

Grace wanted this map cake of the U.S.:


But got something in a terrible state:

I'm not sure which one, but I think we can agree all these states are terrible.


Kelly asked for this Minecraft cake for her son's fifth birthday:


It... didn't square up:


And finally, Rebecca ordered this sweet Minnie Mouse:


But instead, got a major mess:


I can't stop staring at the hair-like black wires. At first I thought those were supposed to be her arms?
I mean, they're not, but now you can't unsee it, either, so... you're welcome. [evil grin]


Thanks to Grace E., Kelly E., & Rebecca O. for ratting Minnie out.

Prepare for ALL the "Horny" Jokes

Have you seen these new unicorn cakes going around?

They're adorable and fairly simple to make, so of course they're hugely popular. And talk about a gift to bakers! All you need are a plain round cake, a few flowers, some eyes, ears, and a horn. Boom.

How do you mess that up?

I'll answer that question with another question:

Unicorn horns: do they really NEED a point?

Yes, yes they do.

FUN FACT: I looked up "Horny" in my thesaurus, and no lie, one of the synonyms is "hot to trot." I can't even make this stuff up.

Of course, some might argue Mister Sex Ed* there has a horn that looks more like a cigar, but that's a fallacy. ('Cuz that's a phallus, see?)

Ooh, I just realized this cake gives a whole new meaning to the phrase "horsing around." Heyooo.

And to something that rhymes with "thickhead." Heyoooooo.

So the next time you feel like betting on the ponies, minions, just make sure your baker gets a grip, and doesn't blow it.

[*COME ON THAT WAS GENIUS... to everyone over the age of 40.]


Thanks to Diane C. for the excuse to write the Mister Ed pun my soul has always yearned for.
