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? ;)

Say My Name, Say My Name

At some point during a bakery phone order, you really have to ask yourself:

"Why's it taking this guy so long to write my name down, anyway?"

And for future reference, I actually prefer it "with just won 'N' in Orange."


Still, the important thing is that I know I'm your one and only.



Also, you should know that of all the variations my name is subjected to, the worst of them all, without a doubt, is "Iffer."

I said, "one F!!"

Is it just me, or are these even worse than usual? (that's saying something)

Wellll, if the Happy and Birthday had been the same colour and tilted toward each other - sort of / \ -ish, that might not have been too bad. Except it leaves me wondering why they used cupcakes in the first place. And "too" N's? now, that's just plain silly. We all know it's "one N only".

Dear Heavens! What do hey teach in schools today?

I cannot tell you how many variations of my name I have seen at Starbucks. I have seen mindi, minday, mindey.

I don't know why that last wreck hits my funny bone just right but it does. SO RIDICULOUS.

Jennifer, Jenifer, with too n's in blue.
Jennifer, Jenifer, what did the baker do?
See the icing? Yes, it's red.
See the baker? He should be dead.
Whatcha doing, Jennifer, with that knife?

Jenifer, Jennifer, with one-n-only.
Jenifer, Jennifer, this baker is a phony.
See the icing? Why's it say that?
See the baker? He should be slapped.
Whatcha doing, Jenifer, with that rolling pin?

Jennifer, Jeniffer, why split up the name?
Jenifer, Jeniffer, this baker is insane.
Are there two f's? I don't think so.
See the baker? He should lay low.
Whatcha doing, Jeniffer, with that frying pan.

(With apologies to Donovan).

My name is Bonnie. I get Donney, Bonney ,Boney, Bobbi , Bonie, Bonny,Bony, It is ridiculous. And 1 time I got Bonita.

On that last cupcake thing, what are those lasso things supposed to be? baby rattles? some kind of symbol? What????

Also, I am convinced that our schools no longer teach English. I am working with a twenty-something and you would not believe how badly she spells....oh, wait. Yes you would.

Who else read "(one-N-only)" and thought they were trying to spell "Connelly"?

I think the funniest thing about the second cake is that they clearly understood the instructions - they spelled the name with one N. But for some reason they felt compelled to include the instructions on the cake too!

As a Jennifer (2 Ns, one F), I've seen it spelled a myriad of ways. The funniest however, was the letter I got addressed to "LaTonya". That's a whole mess of phonetic manipulation there.

Well with my name I get so many variations the most hilarious one was Harleen. Scary and hilarious cause when I saw that I thought of Harley Quinn and laughed even harder.

A Ramon I know gets Raymond, Redmond, Damon, Roman and...Vermont. I guess he should be happy he's not yet been called Reuben, Robin, Rainman or Random. I'm sure it's coming.

The Jenn Iffer actually made me laugh out loud and have tears!!!! What the heck ate those cakes??????!!

November 8, 2017 | Unregistered Commentervalarie

Why is their a capital 'F' in the middle of the "one-n-only" Jenifer? Even with the unique spelling, why would that letter be capitalized?
