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? ;)

One Really IS the Loneliest Number

Or at least the most pathetic-looking:

My guess is the decorator ran out of cupcakes towards the bottom (oh yes, this is another cupcake-cake monstrosity), which resulted in this wonky number 7 with tiny feet attached.

Apparently the decorator also ran out of 'y's; check out the inscription. "Happ 1st Birthday"? Y not?

Marissa H., I hear two can be as bad as one, but I'd have to see that 2 to believe it.

I really liked your Three Dog Night reference. It made me feel so old and giggly.

Eek! That is SO a 7 - if the person making this had done the top of the 1 properly, the bottom would have had enough room/cupcakes to be pulled off properly....

Maybe he was trying to make an Italian number one with the dash across. Yes? Uh, no.
Well I like cupcakes just not with blue frosting. Ugg!
But hey, it's for a baby that just turn one. Happy Birthday boo, boo!

Little Jace had a wonderful first birthday despite his fugly cake! I have always made my older sons cakes (I do a much better job I might add haha) and did not have time to make my youngest sons cake like I had planned and ordered this last minute... never again!! Thank goodness all Jace cared about was making a mess with this "mess" of a cake! =)
