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? ;)

In all fairness, who doesn't want to look like a hot Victoria's Secret babe on her bridal shower cake?

Although with those silver eyes, white lips, and hair streaks, Lubna is looking more like a bridal banshee. Assuming that "bridal" = "bikini" of course. (Hey, it's happened before...)

At least Lubna gets a rockin' bod on her cake, though. As opposed to... well, a rockin' bod:

Behold, the bridal shower weeble wobble!!

Yep, this cheeky little lady salutes all Wreckerators who would pipe icing over a lace-wrapped cake board.

Still, which is worse, ladies? Bad bridal thongs, or raiding your toddler's toy chest?

Wowza. There's so much unidentifiable pellet flotsam on this thing, I'd be looking for rogue bunnies nearby.

Well, never mind which is worse - because this one beats them all, hands down:

Just take a card, and back away slowly.

Jonora A., Megan S., Anony M., & Travis D., isn't it nice to get these things off your chest?

Okay, so I clicked on the link, and oh jeez...that family was crazy. "Whoa there, mama. Whoa...whoa there..." I was thinking this the whole time. I feel so bad for the girl's father (and the groom's mom, I guess...surrounded by half-naked, "lovingly welcomed" new family members and all). Wow. Just wow.

You think Flotsam Cake lady spent many meals "tricking" children into eating fruits and vegetables - and failing?
