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? ;)

And just like that, all of Josh's long years in therapy were undone.



Thanks, Dani E. That's one more memory I'll have to repress.

Joshua seems to have had all his fingers broken. Tickled the wrong guy/gal eh?

<u>Cake Wrecks: A Poem</u>

What defines a “cake wreck”? Well, first, it is a cake.
Most commonly, the decorator made a big mistake.
The message may have typos or be simply hard to read.
The overall design may not be fully as agreed.
The customer’s instructions may get written in the icing.
The form may be too warped for many folks to find enticing.
At times, there’s clearly talent, but it’s kinda gone to waste,
As someone placed an order that’s in questionable taste.
I figure the majority of “wrecks” are fine to eat,
As long as you ignore such shapes as fungus-laden feet,
But some use weird ingredients or toppers that they shouldn’t,
And some look awfully aged. Who’d bite into them? I wouldn’t.
In short, a lot of cakes appear created by a nut.
The good news is, their photos might just make you bust a gut.

I guess it tickles when you break all your fingers. Must have something to do with nerve damage.

Does the baker have any idea of which way finger joints are supposed to bend? Because either that's a handful of broken fingers or the baker thinks fingernails are on the palm side of the hand. (I'm not sure which would be worse.)

What happened to Joshua's fingers? This man doesn't need a tickle; he needs a hand surgeon!

As if "Tickle Tickle" isn't disturbing enough...
Is that hand made of Silly Putty??!?

September 13, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterAyYiYi

I see the 😌! It's disturbing. I can't decide what that hand material is so I'm going with frosting-stuffed latex glove. 😳
