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? ;)

Olga O.'s son is "obsessed" with gas stations, so for his birthday she ordered a cake "featuring a gas pump with diesel and regular handles."

"This is what arrived tonight," she writes. 

"We'll be making nozzle jokes for a long, long time..."

Jumpin' Jack flash!

 It's a gas gas gas!


Thanks to Olga and her baker for making a grown (wo)man cry...with laughter. I'd say I can't get no satisfaction, but to be honest, wild horses couldn't drag me away.

Why is there a snake coming out of it? And did the person ordering the cake include a picture? I didn't know diesel and gas hoses had different nozzles and I used to drive a diesel. Not that there's any excuse for something that looks that bad but I can understand the cake decorator not understanding the directions.

Leigh Ann: where we live, regular and diesel have different colored handles, with diesel usually being green. true, we did not include a picture! we were expecting the whole rectangular gas pump thing, with handles and a hose made out of, say, licorice.
word has it that baker is a very sweet but very sheltered young lady -- which made the cake even funnier.
and we removed the nozzle prior to serving. cake itself was delish :-)
