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? ;)

What, no exclamation mark?

I totally read this as Longuadulations

I love me some stoopid people!

When my brother graduated high school as the valedictorian of his class the baker misspelled his cake in the same way. When we took it back and demanded that they correct the mistake they insisted that was the correct spelling because "congradulations" was spelled like "graduate." Fortunately the bakery was at the mall. We went to the bookstore and bought a dictionary to prove them wrong!

Your question made me laugh so hard

This reminds me of a time at work when I was really tired and spelled "inspirational" as "inspiratationrational".

Fortunately I caught it before it was printed in any kind of permanent way.

I am guilty of actually putting a misspelling of congratulations on the marquee at the elementary school where I volunteered. Standing outside after school, the fifth grade teacher asked me, who did the marquee? I had to admit it was my doing, and it would be for the spelling bee champ.

Obviously this person needs to go back to school for cursive lessons.

The ironic thing here is, my mom actually TRIED to get me a cake with "Congraduations" on it for my high school graduation, and they spelled it "correctly" instead.

You guys! Be nice! It's plainly clear that the cake decorator has a speech impediment and is just spelling it the way it sounds when he says it aloud... conguatulations. Like the priest who says mawwaige on the Princess Bride...

Seriously, I am going to get fired because I can't stop laughing. My laughs have become slightly hysterical and I am growing progressively weaker for the continuous effort that I am exerting with every subsequent post. Jen, you are my new hero…

i do have to point out that when writing in script, an "n" actually has two "bumps" whereas an "m" has three...not that i think the decorator actually intended that, mind you!!

September 6, 2008 | Unregistered Commenterjacq.

To be fair, my mother, who is a retired English teacher, horribly misspelled "congratulations" on my graduation card.

Of course, we also ragged her mercilessly when we saw it.

September 10, 2008 | Unregistered Commenterkatfairy

hehehehe...Sarah W...thanks..your post is what tied this whole thing together and made me pee my pants laughing...perfect..hahaha
