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? ;)

A Picture Is Worth...Well, This Many Words

Say, just what kind of Mickey Mouse operation do you think they're running here?

Hey, laugh all you want; I'm just impressed they spelled it right.

It's like music to my eyes. Really.

Ok, not really.

And if you think e-mailing a picture to the bakery helps...think again.

Hey, a print-out of the entire Wikipedia source file still counts as a picture, right? Right?

Michael B., Jennifer C. & Jim H., Amber C., & Jessica C., I think I'd steal two icing roses in protest of that cake, too.

Isn't messing up a cake for a law office just asking for trouble? I mean, EVERYONE who got one of these cake wrecks deserves and apology and refund, but a law office can sue without incurring lawyer's fees.

I've wondered for a long time, when they go to pick up the cake and they see these disasters, do they PAY for the cake? Or do they just point out the idiocy of the cake decorators? I mean, are there people who argue back that they were supposed to put "Mickey Mouse then, goodbye"? I just wondered how this goes in real life. Meanwhile, I'll keep laughing my butt off at other people's expesnse. HA HA HA

Oh, oh the lawyer cake... that's absolutely phenomenal. I can imagine...

"Can you put this on the cake?" (referring to the image, obviously)

"Sure thing!" (referring to the entire thing for some reason)

Man... with the licensing notes and all. I think I want that cake. How about a cake with a printout of CakeWrecks on it?!
