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 Fairy Tale Wrecking

Once upon a crime... 

 Belle went on a killing spree,

while Cinderella stayed home and pondered the meaning of thumbs.





Thanks to Suzanne S. for making me laugh like a fool for far longer than is socially acceptable.

I refuse to believe this is accidental. I like to think that some disgruntled bakery worker somewhere got so sick of requests for Disney princesses that he/she deliberately made them look as irate as he/she was feeling.

I have nothing clever to add. Just wanted to let you I'll be borrowing/stealing the phrase "staying home to ponder the meaning of thumbs" and working it into conversation at every possible turn. Thanks!

Oh lords... This is golden! I laughed for too long at such a simple, lone cake!

At first I was a little upset that a former client had submitted my worst disaster to cw! For real! Then I saw that one princess was missing and realized it wasn't mine...thank goodness! But piping those faces, especially the EYES, is super hard to get right!
