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? ;)

The Mighty Morphin' Tee Wrecks

Pro Tip: If you ever want a printed image on your cake, be very careful with the kind of reference you bring for the baker to scan in.

Well, shirt.


Yep, it turns out Sean's friends were hoping for more of a... sunglasses.. cropped top. This definitely put a wrinkle in their plans, but that's what you get when you order off the cuff. Besides, I'm sure they can collar the pasty perp, easy-sleevesy.


(Or should it be cake clothes'd? ;))

No, I Won't Show You The Uncensored Version, So Don't Ask

It's National Photography Month, bakers, so let's go over a few ground rules again:


1) Stop doing this:

Just stop it.


Ground Rule The Second:

If the customer asks for a "cute train photo cake" for her 2-year-old, remember to include the word "cute" in your Google image search:



Ground Rule III: This Time It's Personal:

Look, I'm not saying a 13 year-old girl can't love a reality-show bounty hunter *and* frilly pastel flowers. I'm just saying maybe those two themes don't complement each other so well:


And finally, please, bakers, if you forget everything else, remember this:



Talk about your "flash photography." Heyooooo.

Though I'm sure the "lol" made it alllll better for the unsuspecting party-goers.

(The caption said it was for a "surprise baby shower." I'LL SAY.)


Thanks to Rebecca H., Silvia R., Eric M., & Adrienne G. for proving there IS such a thing as too much of a spread at parties.
