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? ;)

Say What?

Ah, sweet failures in communication.

Pushy, pushy. You WILL be Miss Charles, hear? Now, love PF Changs! Love them!!

At least it sounds right when you read it aloud. Although you do have to wonder: if you don't know, what makes you think the people eating your cake will?

Some folks just can't resist telling everyone when they're finished with a task. "G-r-e-a-t...J-o-b...there! Done!"

Resistance is futile.

I can't decide... is the last cake a misspelling of Confirmation, or is the wreckerator anti-Christian/anti-Catholic or something? *confused*

Or another theory... perhaps the child wants to celebrate how well they are conforming themself to Christ?

Either way it goes, congratulations. *smiles*

Word verification says "kraplate". Isn't that what we sometimes have to do late at night in the bathroom?

Maybe with the Balmer Ravens cake... the colors might come from when we still had the Baltimore Colts... the decorater might have had a moment where they forgot the colors and thought it was still that time period, and brought back those memories (btw, I wasn't even born when the Colts were stolen from us. It's been passed down from my mother, another true Balmer girl, hon.) Maybe...

For a Baptism cake that my aunt ordered once, they misspelled Jesus as Jeusus. When called out on it, the bakery clerk said, "Oh, Lord."

What a wonderfully funny surprise to see my boyfriends going away cake on here! He transfered from 1 PF Changs to another and his crew was missing him before he left. I took a pic of my computer screen to show him! He was a little surprised!

The first cake is supposed to be "You will be MISSED." Sadly I know many people who don't know how to write in the past tense.
