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? ;)

After yesterday's doggone post, I figured this was only appropriate.

(And yes, the pics are from two different sources.)

Thanks to Kristin F., & Michelle B.!

In honor of Gov. Sarah Palin, we need MOOSE filled party cakes ! (I had to explain mouse-filled to my dear husband, who did not know what mousse was, either, as my hair is naturally curly.)

That was my 'mouse-filled' photo - thanks for posting it, Jen! (And yes, Albertsons, now SaveMart - you guys are good!) It took me TEN MINUTES to get someone's attention to tell them about the sign (after I snatched the photo). The only person available was stocking the cheese shelves... I thought it was really funny, but the guy didn't even crack a smile when I told him what the problem was. Glad you guys got it though - LOL. Next time I won't bother telling anyone - heh.

I work at an albertsons, the sign computer there has no spell check or grammar check. Some don't have common phrases inserted in the forms like Shaped Cakes. Last year, they printed "Hamburger and Fries w/Ketchup Cake" for one of the Labor Day offerings. I pointed it out - they didn't listen.

I love it when I see those typos... hilarity ensues~

And the fact that I work for that particular company makes it even more hilarious. I want to know which store this was taken at. ^___^ *can't stop laughing*

*looks at photo #2"
Is that supposed to be a CAT?

I saw a cake today that was very similar to the second one. It was a blue dog.

OK so the signs get screwed up all the time I know this cause sadly enough I work at the Albertson's bakery. I no cause the chocolate chip cookies were a dead give away. But I will say we have one decorator that has been doing this for 10 years an she still screws up cakes royally. Like we ordered a Hannah Montana cake with pink and orange airbrush and she just globed hot pink frosting on it it was bad.

it took me about five minutes to realize that the second cake actually had a face o.o
