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? ;)

At least the correct "you're" is used on the second cake.

Accidentally posted this on yesterday's wrecks:

In an ideal alternate universe, the second cake was presented to the baker of the first cake.

at least the cake is "happy"

You should have seen the other choice......

Strange, but when I look at that cake for a while I start to feel HAPPY.....

Jen, perfect post, perfect duo. Just think, after a couple more Martini's, to the drunk naked eye, both wrecks will look like they belong on Sunday's Sweets! Wait, not even a few Martini's have those magical powers.

Poot choices?

September 6, 2016 | Unregistered Commenterevota

I don't know what is worse. The color scheme on the first cake or that it looks like someone scratched 'HAPPY' into that color scheme, decided it looked terrible and shoved it out to be sold.

AND...? That WAS the wreckorator's choice, apparently. Are there rules for just HOW wrecked they can be? Dropping the whole thing face down was a mere they may not notice that it tastes as good as it looks.

My drunk DragonCon self didn't make any dumb decisions this year! I consider it a success!!

I'm trying, really trying, to imagine how and/or why that 1st cake made it out to the aisle to be sold. That is perhaps the most disgusting mush-up of colors and textures ever produced on a cake by a "professional".* Wasn't there a second line bakery employee to say "No. Just NO!"? Oh. The. Horror.

*to be fair, there have been some truly awful cakes but most of them were "theme" cakes, like camo or "Frozen". This one is, sadly, an original creation from the <God only knows what damage that head injury did> mind of the... I was going to say decorator but maybe "icing and airbrush wielding visually impaired scary person" is more accurate.

Even though that cake makes me want to wretch, I still somehow feel 'Happy'.

Must be a subliminal thing . . .

The piping on the first cake makes it look like a pool surrounded by people bent over vomiting into it. I cannot unsee that.

September 6, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterElizabeth

Ah, so it was the decorators choice to cover the cake with mold and bacteria spores, interesting. *Hurk*

This is soooo funny! Love it!

I see a different story here,

caption: "On her first day on the job, Charlotte didn't understand that 'some cake' wasn't a complement."
