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? ;)

Happy Flash Drive Day!

Here at Cake Wrecks we've learned over the years that ordering a photo cake - and then bringing in your own photo on a portable flash drive - can be tricky.


First a baker just drew a copy of the drive itself on the cake - rather nicely, I might add.


Then a baker photocopied the drive and put that on the cake. (Yes, really.)


Well today, I'm happy to report that one baker has finally - FINALLY - figured it out:



Thanks to Johanna O. for sharing her birthday revelation.

Where's the cake with the flash drive ITSELF sticking up out of it?

I knew there was a good reason for today's problem at work: Mac user had to transfer photos from her Mac laptop to a PC desktop. Once the photos were on the flash drive, she tried to stick the drive into a card reader. No, I said, put it into a USB port. Where's that? she asked. There are four in the front of your computer, I replied, pointing. Then she wanted to know if it mattered which port to use. Some days...
