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? ;)

Draw Your OWN Conclusions

Ever get the feeling bakers are doing this on purpose?


Like, they know exactly what we're asking for; they just don't feel like drawing today.


It's a tempting theory, I know...


...except for all the times when it's actually MORE work to get it wrong:

Well, presumably “full artistic liberty” includes the liberty of not being artistic at all. Lesson: don’t EVER give the bakers that much authority.

Yeah, I think that last one may actually *be* on purpose!

All I got from this is a craving for tic tac candies. Wintergreen.
Or maybe rainbow.
And, at least the last one isn't talking "ballistic" liberty.

I am convinced that sometimes, it HAS to be on purpose. How else could so many people screw it up??

That first cake just means the wife was wishing her husband happy birthday and later on there'd know.
