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? ;)

The REST of the Story

"Welcome to the K. Krex Evaluation Center! Please have a seat, and we'll begin the exam.

[consulting clipboard] "Ok, let's start by having you cover your left eye and spell out the top line here."

"Uhhh.... M. d. W. 2. K. 1. O?"

"Perfect. Now go ahead and read me the bottom word here."

"Oh man, that's tough. Um...matheridby?"

"Good, good. Now, please cover your right eye and spell out the letters on the bottom line here."

"N... O... T.. T.. P.. P.. L.. B.. S.. S.. S.. S.. L?"

[writing on clipboard] "Mmmhmm. Now, kindly read this for me:"

{squinting} "Uhhh.... Is that even English?"

"Excellent. Moving on, now I'm going to change the lenses over your eye. Tell me which is more in focus:

"Number one...

"...or number two?"

"Gosh, I don't know. They look about the same."

"I see. Ok, for our final test, let's have you put on these glasses and try reading these:"

" I have no idea what that says."

"And I'd rather not say that one out loud."

"Oh! That's the artist formerly known as Prince, right?"

"Well done. And congratulations - you're hired! Here are your apron and piping bags, and you can pick up your spools of ribbon and plastic flotsam in the morning. Now, go make us proud!

"And a bunch of cupcake cakes."

It's a shame that we finally get real balloons and it's still a wreck.
"Showers of Nipplboob"??
OOOOHHHH!!!!!! The "straight stitches" (which I also didn't understand) on the last cake are actually letter candles spelling "birthday" (to go with "happy" which you CAN see), but from the angle, all you see are the tops! I feel so much better now! Except for the moldy roses. And the gray stick-thingies that don't appear to be candles.

Oui, Mme Wiggins is learning French.

The last one is written on a 1, to remind everyone that cake writting is a form of expression and is therefore protected by the first ammendment.

I think that the first one is a password to a Swiss bank account.

I think EPCOT might be French for, "Hey, the word verifications made a come-back!"

I know MdW was already explained, but I read it as Midway 2010.

As for the French one, they were celebrating Ender's birthday...

How did I miss this? As an Optometrist ! And on behalf of all Optometrists, I say "Tnhak Yuo".

I used to work at Baskin Robbins. Whenever the decorator wasn't there and someone wanted something written on a cake that was pre-made, a random worker would write on it. A pretty good excuse for most of the crappy writing.

I know the French one is supposed to say "Joyeux Anniversaire", but it clearly says "Joyeux Anniverzix". Which is obviously one of Asterix's lesser-known compatriots. Probably a baker.

Oh my, I'm crying. This is the funniest thing I've ever seen. What makes it so funny is that it's real. Keep them coming x

Showers of happiness! I believe... And I'm showered with happiness for figuring it out...
