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? ;)

Chevron Strikes Again!

Remember when someone ordered a cake with a chevron print, and got a chevron gas symbol instead?

Ah, good times.


Well, since then, we've seen a baker do this:


And then, just last week, something amazing happened.

CW reader Ashlee ordered a baby shower cake with a chevron print, and - drum roll, please....



Chevron, Chevrolet... oooh, so close.


Thanks to Fyre & Ashlee J. for the car wreck.

As I look at these, I find myself thinking that the first cake was to denote that Jamie's birthday was going to be a gas, (hopefully, not the kind with beans). The second cake could have been for a French person. I mean, Cheveron sounds French, doesn't it? On the last cake, I only have one question. Where is the baseball, hot dogs and apple pie? (If that doesn't date me, nothing will).

The Chevron Gas one is at least understandable. The rest? Not so much...

Clearly, the next evolution of this cake will include a picture of Chevy Chase...

Cake #3: Dean Winchester approves, and if it was a pie he would eat it.

How on earth? Well the wreckerators obviously know the gas station lol. What I am wondering is how the heck they confuse a chevron symbol for the chevy one lol. Oh man..

OK, Mike, I'll see your apple pie and raise you this: If you lift the icing, will you see the USA?
