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? ;)

What, ANOTHER Obscure Bank Holiday?

Ok, obviously this cake decorator has some mad skilz: great balloon placement, excellent use of color, and I particularly like the confetti sprinkle to icing squiggle ratio. Really, my only criticism can be that he or she thinks "Myjiantbirthday" is one word. (And lest you think this is only a spelling error & spacing issue, look closely: those letters are all connected, my friends. Ergo, one word.) But you know, as mistakes go, that's kind of a doozie.


Proof That Computers Will Never Rule the World

This is legit, folks: never think that I don't do my research! Apparently the store in question had an online ordering form, which then linked directly to the edible-ink printer. Granted, you would think the decorator might catch this glaringly obvious mistake, but in that person's defense, he or she is only paid to slap some icing roses on, ok? So lay off! Oh, and that will be $19.95, please.
