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? ;)

How, Mary L.?

Smilies make everything better. Here, I'll show you:
I despise you all, you bunch of idiots. ;)

See? The little ;) shows I'm joking! ;)

Also, last I checked California was still attached. Just sayin'.

UPDATE: Yes, my loyal and attentive Wreckies, I DID see the apostrophe is in the wrong place on this cake. Rest assured I am not advocating some new radical apostrophe-placement coup. It's bad. Baaa-aad.

Q: Hey, what's better than a mean goodbye cake?

A: One that's misspelled! Duh.

"That's nice of you to say, but it does seem like you're a little biased, being the seller and all..."

To some comments:
That's the Danish flag. How do I know? Because the Norwegian flag has a blue band inside the white band. This is the Dannebrog. :)

It's a cute cake, despite the misplaced apostrophe. I want a cake that insults me if I ever leave Denmark (if I even go..)

So good to see my cake here! I moved to Denmark for a few months as part of my uni course, so my friends thought up the "Thank God You're Leaving" cake. The bakery clearly had no understanding of the basics of English grammar, but at least they knew there should be an apostrophe somewhere! Incidentally, the bakery was in South London.

I've just read through all the comments, just wanted to say that the 'Thank God You're Leaving' cake was given to me just before I moved to Denmark (NOT Norway!) by two very good friends, it wasn't meant with malice!

I see the California cake as either someone who had a going-away party, moving to CA; or someone who finally escaped its eeeevil clutches.

Am I the only person who interpreted the Amy cake as "Amy is dying of lung cancer, here are some cigarette butts to show our enthusiasm at our loss"? Yes? Okay. Never mind, then.

For my high school graduation, my mom had them make my cake say "Get the hell out" in red cursive surrounded by pretty icing flowers.

There's a gaping hole where my mother's love should be.

This is distinctly a Coldstone Creamery Cake. They are notorious for cake wrecks.

PDN has not responded to the accusations of passive racism, so it is hard to say whether it is an oversight on their part, or something more sinister. It appears more to be a symptom of the culture.

The cake that says "Good Riddance" with California, I think is Green Day because they are from California and they have a song called Good Riddance(Time of your Life)
