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? ;)

They're Gonna Need 'Em

Ask where the second "e" went all you want; *I* want to know what's in that icing. [shudder]

Sorry, Ash, you only get one.

Aw, this is my fav "favewell" cake ever. It's the bes!

I'm a little unclear on the message here. Is it:

"Best wishes! Here's a pile of crap! With plastic! And curly ribbon!"

Yes? No? Am I close?

Ok, so in the Ghostbusters video game (oh, c'mon, you knew I was a nerd) there's this cursed clock that claims to show the exact time of death for anyone who looks at it. Creepy, right?

Well, guess what came to mind when I saw this cake?

You think this Wreckerator knows something about Beck Y's future - say, around 10 PM - that we don't? I mean, she filled in everything else from "play with gran kids" to "gardaning," so that lone blank spot is looking pretty dang ominous, if you ask me.

In fact, maybe the baker should just get right to the point:




Thanks to W.C., Ashley B., April C., Ginny B., Heather J., Betsy U., & Jennifer H. for all the fell wishes.

Man I miss the ninja donut.. these cakes are just scary. Especially that first one. Are there nuts in that frosting or dead ants? Either way scary stuff lol. I liked the writing on the cake with the strawberries on it too bad they can't spell too well..can't have everything I guess.

I really like the Favewell cake handwriting, and how it's sort of embedded in the surrounding icing. (How'd she do dat?) My happy eyes keep going back to it.

I see poor Beck Y is scheduled to 'nop' - sounds unpleasant, hope it's not painful

I kinda like how "whimsically" the final favewell is written on #7...

Was that...a quote from Hocus Pocus? Aside from Suzie Q THE BEST made for TV Disney movie ever. (oh, Under Wraps is way up there too.) Jen, I love you more every. day.
Buh bye.

I happened to see part of an episode of a certain NJ cake show about a guy & his famiglia, and he was putting bugs in the icing for some crazy entomology thing, and it looked exactly like the first cake!

More importantly, on the first cake, is that an apostrophe in "Wish's" ??? Sure looks like a bit of icing there, but maybe it's a bug. I mean, pecan.

It's probably lavender flowers in that first cake.

I'm pretty sure that first cake is a prune cake, with prunes in the frosting. And they taste as nasty as they look...

I thought it was pretty clear that something was going on at 10pm that BeckY may not want on her cake.
Eh, married folks? Eh?

I'm not sure that the "favewell" cake isn't from the same bakery as the "it a gril" cake.
