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? ;)

Something tells me this bakery's e-mail ordering may need a little fine-tuning:

That, or something just didn't "click."

Note: You're dying to try that link, aren't you? Knew it. Well, it turns out if you include the final forward slash you get a broken link - but without it, voila!

A lovely pink and pointy version of Epcot.

I still don't get it. What is wrong with the link on the cake? How does the 'thak you' cake relate?

Oh man if anyone bought that cake I will fall off my chair laughing at them. I cannot believe anyone in their right mind would actually buy that cake with a link that doesn't even work properly lol. Man, I would fire all the wreckerators for that one. Then again they didn't really decorate it just frosted and linked the poor cake... takes pity and eats it lol.

And to think that 30 or so years ago, we would have thought this was some kind of foreign language with not even a clue of what someone really intended. Robin

betcha anything they found the logo and thought "wow, that's a LOT of work...why don't we just print the link on the cake instead??"

Don't they have doilies in Ukraine? What IS that thing the cake is on, an extra Rubbermaid lid?

OMG! That was freaking HILARIOUS! I love it!

Hilarious. Considering how many people I know who can't even type a long URL like that without screwing up, props to the decorator for piping it so well.

I do wonder why the person who ordered the cake would even bother supplying a link. Why not just print out the logo and hand it to the baker?

Well duh, of course you can't see the logo yet - you haven't clicked on the frosting.
