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? ;)

This decorator missed the "Independent Thinking" class in school.

Ross didn't catch the best part in time though. The part on the order form that said "ONE UNRIPE STRAWBERRY THAT WE CAN DIP TO COVER IT UP" CHECK!

What the heck is going on at the top left of the cake? Can a cake get a hernia?

If it weren't for that dumb error it would be a pretty good cake.

So, being blond, I read the first two words as "Okay donkey," and wondered wny you were using a line from Shrek with a Princess Bride headline. It's been one of those days. . . . And it's only 1 pm!

Was the cake replaced? Or just censored? As in, "Leave, %$@#%$!"

Perhaps they should have added an age marker for the strawberry.

Heck I would take the hint and leave the cake with the wreckerator lol.
