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? ;)

Droning It In

Ever wish that a fully decorated cake would just fall into your lap? Well now, thanks to unmanned drone technology, IT CAN.

That's right, a bakery in Shanghai, China recently began using drones to deliver their cakes. DRONES, you guys. Flying drones.

This may be the most brilliant creation ever invented, my friends. In fact, I'm suddenly feeling a lot less bitter about my lack of hoverboards and self-lacing sneakers. Flying robots delivering cake? Never mind, future: I'M GOOD.

Plus, drone-dropped cakes are great for so many occasions! You know, like:

Mother's Day:


... and baby showers!

Even small orders will get that special "droned in" touch:

Oh, and can't forget The Big Day!


Not to worry; I'm sure that'll spring right back...

 Yes, my friends, the future is finally here, and the future is good. A little smooshed, sure, but good - and I, for one...

What's that, you say? 

China has GROUNDED the cake drones? Because the cakes might fall on someone or whatever?

Ok, I take it back.

The first cake seems like it's conveying a subtle message. We got Mom a cake because we'd feel guilty not acknowledging her, but we want her to understand there's still a rift in the relationship.
The fourth cake with the legless bear - it's pandamonium.
The last cake reminds me of the Wizard of Oz. "I'm melting!!!"

That last cake almost makes me want to cry. Hopefully the bride was inclined more to laughter than tears (though rage might be entirely appropriate as well).

Well. It's cake, of course it would fall on somebody. The first law of slapstick...

Gives new meaning to death by chocolate cake...

That last cake reminds me of when I used to deliver wedding cakes... We had a whipped cream frosting cake.
Picture June.. mid afternoon.. hot.. outdoor wedding.
AC on ARCTIC in car..
Cake delivered... and I played Indy race driver getting out of there. I'm sure it melted but no one ever said anything.. jeez.

That poor panda! His little legs stuck up there, the tiny feet, it makes me giggle. And then feel bad.

I just shucked some corn, and the "greenery" on the last cake gave me deja vu.

And, truth be told, I'd probably still eat a drone-dropped cake!

Oh that poor lil panda bear. Wanted off that cake so fast he left his leg there.. lmao I feel bad for laughing but I can't help it.

Yes, it is always sad to see a wedding disaster... but, GOOD Grief, there must have been 20 lbs of fondant on that last cake and they probably used an unaltered cake mix. First time with fondant i guess. Can you hear the conversation? Baker to Bride: Why yes, I can do fondant! Baker to Husband: Quick go pull up that U Tube video, you know the one, it has the 16 year old making a Barbie fondant cake. She’s fantastic!

What happens if a cake falls on someone? Free cake, duh!! It’s win win!

It seems that delivery by drone is experiencing a drop in quality. That way, sales will plummet until business hits bottom, and then it goes splat!

1) The perfect Mother's Day cake... for Mother Gothel!

2) All I see is some excess frosting taken off from the cake. As far as wrecks go, this one may well have been fixed.

3) That cake is like... I want sprinkles! Replace "sprinkles" with "whole cake" or "smooth delivery", result is the same.

4) The panda cake can be meaningful if seen with the right mindset... or just a hyperactive imagination. Like it could be your innocence, trying to escape its fate... and the torn limb shows it doesn't come without its consequences... um, yeah, as I said... hyperactive imagination. Or too much caffeine.

5, 6 and 7) That looks like a foreshadowing... really ominous foreshadowing.
