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? ;)

Aw, look at the sweet cake for Sarah-Maude's second birthday:



Although, those balloons look a little odd, don't they? Let's take a closer look...

[eyes bulging] Great Scott! Hide the children!!

And I KNOW you see what I see, people, so don't even try to accuse me of having my mind in the gutter. It's the Fireman cake all over again.

Eric N., thank goodness this was for a safely oblivious 2-year-old. Still, given how obvious those balloons are, I'm pretty sure I'd steer clear of this bakery in the future. Unless it was for a bachelorette party, of course.

Sometimes I wonder if the bakeries do this on purpose. You know, make it a game to see what they can get away with...

WELLLLL......SORT of like the fireman cake.
(THAT one had that huge, epic.....uhhhhh....HOSE.)

Speaking as someone in the fire biz, the size of the hose does matter ZZZZZZZZZ[]>-----------

Oh, that red one. OUCH!!! Then again, the yellow one next to it appears to have an abrasion so OUCH again.

I bet if you went to that same bakery and asked specifically for a cake with "penis-shaped balloons" on it, said balloons would not be anywhere near that accurately depicted.

those are not even balloons-balloons get thinner at bottom DUH

Ah, that's meant to be "2 years" in French then. I don't think it quite is, but it's not like I know French.

(I thought it said "2 ano" at first, which is an entirely different misspelling.)

Oh those wangs pretending to be balloons lol. I cannot stop laughing at them and wondering what is wrong with the wreckerators.

Sorry, I don't see it. They're just not the right shape. Unless someone is willing to be more specific (and probably more graphic), I'll remain happily in the dark. ;(

Well, the warped 'balloons' are worse than the double-wanged fireman of the referenced fireman cake!

@R3test: "2 ans" is indeed correct French for "2 years".

July 21, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterKai Lowell

"2 ans" is correct, but "fĂȘte" is misspelled.

So, I'll be the first to admit I'm not the best decorator. However, I've made balloons a hundred times and they don't involve two extra bumps at the bottom, very tightly coiled strings, and TEXTURE. This was 100% on purpose. Either the decorator is a pervert OR (more likely) the customer was rude in some way (acted like a... well you know) so the decorator wanted to make a point.
