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? ;)

It was Victoria(#3) or Lacey(#2) who did the frosting jobs, no?

Is a Victorian lace cake supposed to look like a pile of pasta? (White cake with a raspberry filling, though... that does sound delicious!)

I don't even care that it's not lace, I would shove my face in that top cake. White cake, buttercream and raspberry? Yes, please!

We have Lacey, what happened to Cagney?

They mean "lazy."

I like it when they come out with more and more obscure definitions for what MUST have been a "tough assignment"...
"White cake? Check! Cream cheese icing? Check! Raspberry!.....RASPBERRY!!"
(..uh......oops? Huh?)

You all just don't know your science. All of these are various species of the bakery lace worm, which is grown in dark and secret places by wreckorators for the purpose of decorating cakes.

Obviously it's "Lacy" as in "Shoelaces". Victorian Shoelace Cakes... :P

"White lace and promises... We've only just begun..."

To be fair, they were going for cornelli lace which I don't care for even when executed well...

Now I know wreckerators think lace looks like some kind of weird spaghetti lol. I would just take that off and eat the darn cake lol.

I don't think it's because I remembered, I just think you did a perfect setup: I *knew* what that last image was going to say. ;)

Al the K: well done!

It's SHOE LACES. Obviously. Long long shoe laces.

On what planet does “clumsily piped piles of frosting” = “lace”? [raises scepter] We are not amused!

Reminds me of when the valve on the Silly String can got stuck open.
