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? ;)

It's the beginner's basic: one round(ish) glob o' icing, and one string.

And yet...


Er, sorry, but I'm afraid writing it doesn't make it true.

Well, I AM seeing something that starts with a "B"...

[looking around] Er...

[waving] Hi, kids!

Dude. Are those teeth?

You know what to do when you see packs of wild balloons running in opposite directions, right?

Thaaat's right: Check the expiration on all your prescription meds.

Look at this next Wreck long enough, and you'll begin to ask yourself some interesting questions:

Questions like, "Which way is up? Which way is down? Is that green circle supposed to be the string? And if so, why aren't the balloons attached to it? Hey, am I being Punk'd here? Is that show even ON anymore? And where did my friends go? Do I seem strange, standing here alone in this bakery, questioning a cookie? Answer me, random old woman walking by! ANSWER ME!!

"Oh. Sorry. Well, I didn't know you were called Dennis, now did I?"

Look out, Kerri. They've organized, and they're coming.

Which reminds me:

I bet it's a girl.

Early C., Tracy C., Heather P., Tiffany H., Vikki, Kim M., Kerri K., & Stacey, I'd say something about the sprinkles, but that just seems rude, you know?

Thanks for posting a selection of balloon cakes the same day my mom almost died from contact with a latex balloon! And yes, that thanks is sincere - It cheered her up to know that there are still balloons out there that are so inept that they couldn't possibly be murderers!

THIS is exactly why I hated working at a retail bakery in a grocery store. The "wreck"maker I worked with was horrible and was the "head designer" who was supposed to be "teaching" me... after I'd been decorating for over 5 years.
She made things to put in the display case that customers would literally look at and ask, "Ummm... WHAT IS THAT?" Sadly, most of the time, I had NO idea!

Oooh, don't think I didn't catch the Monty Python reference there!

Do boob balloons exist yet? Somebody should get on that.

Psst, Word Verification: "reasusn" isn't a word. Even if you have seen it written on a cake...

So many stages of mitosis/meiosis represented on cakes. It makes 9th grade science teachers proud.

Eesh, makes me afraid to talk to my friends when they talk about wanting balloons at thier b-day party. BTW, is it possible to have HALF a balloon? My friends are dying to have one!!!
Friend: "I want a half balloon! Is that possible?"
Me: "You just gotta cut a normal one in half and add a flat side to the open side."
Friend: "I WANT one!!!!"
