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-ha! I Fixed It!

No one will ever know.


Boy, that was close. Can you imagine if the dad had gotten suspicious?

The good news: we got all the squirrel footprints off.

The bad news: we're gonna have to charge you extra. (Mr. Nutters is a real pain to bathe.)

See? I told you it wasn't "Baby Phower."

So appetizing, next time you'll be asking us to mess up on purpose.

Discount? Why would there be a discount? Why, this cake could work for ANY occasion that involves graduating in 2010.

Because nothing says "Baby Shower" quite like "BABY Baby Shower."

Many thanks to Erica H., Inigo M., Carol S., Amy Lee, Peter V., Milly I, Catherine A., Frosty, Allie J., Stephanie G., Albus D., and BABY period.

Not sure exactly how prestigious that is, but I was asked to name 6 blogs that I enjoy and yours definitely made that list! I just posted about it and the post includes all the significant things you need to do to live up to "stylish blogger" status (if you so choose). In any case, thanks for being entertaining.

Maybe the Baby Baby Shower is for a very young mother, you know, babies having babies. That's a cheery thought.

At least cake #6 has appropriate flotsam. It looks toxic, so you can't say they didn't warn you!

Is the first cake the moistest cake you'll ever taste because its a cake of a lake? Birdseye style? Would that cake-o-lake? lake-cake? clake?


Also, the lonesome exclamation point is for the profound silence.

"It's called crumb coating, and no, we don't believe in it." ooooookay

I can't figure out to save my life what the thing is floating in the clouds on the baby cakes. Can anyone see that? What IS that?

Kinda makes me wonder what was on those cakes originally to make them try and erase it lol. Also if that cake is the moistest one they have..I think I would pass.

So I know the graduation cake. Back in April or May, the Springville High School had their graduation. I remember that cake. The customer didn't want it (surprise!) so the name got scraped off and the cake tossed in the case in the hopes that some desperate mother would buy it last minute. I almost died laughing when I saw the picture on this site, I told the decorator who made the cake that she was famous, or rather, that her cake was famous. She wasn't as amused as the rest of us were.

The last cake, on it's lower right, has some weird object, and I noticed it on another baby cake. What the hell is that supposed to be??? I have had a baby and I don't recognize that as anything my kid had. Ever.
