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? ;)

Dental Training

Hi, I'm here to pick up a cake? It's the "Happy Birthday Brittany" one.

Ah, no, see, that second "Birthday" should be "Brittany."


 No no, this has Brittany twice. I need "Happy Birthday" on it.

Ok, now you've just combined them into one word. There should be three.


 You don't mind if I bang my head on this counter here, do you?


 Look, forget the name. Could you just give me a cake that says "Happy Birthday," with sprinkles on it? Yes? Great. Thanks.





Thanks to Anony M., Bethany C., Angela A., Margo R., Brian R., & Kasha D.  for the dental training. (Because it's like pulling teeth? Eh?)

Not-So-Basic Instructions

There's a certain creativity to literal LOLs - a kind of "outside the box" thinking that never fails to impress me. The kind that says, "Oh, you want the words written in purple? THEN THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT I WILL WRITE."

"But not necessarily in that color."

Also, it turns out those are not garbage bags in a windstorm.


You might think it would help to spell out the name for a birthday cake, but that's not always the case - as "Alison with one L" discovered:

Wait for it... waaaiit for it...


And lest you think it's better to write it down  - and perhaps add a helpful footnote:




Adding a P.S. is never a good idea, either:


The fact is, sometimes wreckerators just have a hard time getting the picture:

Or maybe they just really stink at drawing.
