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? ;)

Wedding Wrecks, Fangirl Edition

Imani wanted this cake for her wedding, only with bright lime green flowers instead of pink:


She got this:




And Meredith asked for this design with little pumpkins instead of apples:


... but she got this:




And finally, as a baker herself, Zoey decided to keep her wedding cake design SUPER simple to avoid potential wreckage:

No piping required! Just plain frosted tiers and colored sugar crystals!


Say it with me, now:

What could possibly go wrong?


Oooh, Sherlock, you so bad.


Thanks to Imani R., Meredith R., & Zoey K., who want to know if I seriously just turned this post into a SuperWhoLock love fest. And the answer is yes, YES I DID.

Meredith's cake- are the layers cracking around the edges? I think those "pumpkins" are about to melt. I hope she gets her money back.

While not the greatest, the first "after" cake was not so horrible. And that last GIF has me giggling at work XD

Evil Sherlock! Shame on you!

On the first cake, that is technically lime green, if you're looking at the outside of the fruit.

The last two...are just terrible.

Why does every wreck look like it was made by the baker's six-year-old child?

Dean can exorcise the cakes. Or at least salt and burn them.

The Doctor can use his sonic screwdriver to explode the cakes.

And Sherlock can deduce HOW those cakes went from 'I want this' to 'I got that'. Because if he can't figure it out, nobody ever will.

The first cake is pretty good ut if the bottom tier was frosted green the gaps wouldn't have been as noticeable. Otherwise thise is not really a wreck imho
The other 2, however, are just a no.
