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? ;)

Fee Fi Fo Fana!

Yesterday we learned that writing names on cake can result in some pretty unfortunate nicknames.

But what if you already have an adorable nickname? Like "Briana Banana?" How do you wreck that up?

Well, in that case, I supppose the baker could always misspell it.

But that's kind of boring, right? So, let's see... what if - hypothetically - the baker mispelled "banana", but then also, instead of drawing a banana on the cake, she tossed a real, unpeeled banana on top?

No, wait - first she should shrink-wrap the banana and draw a smiley face on it with a Sharpie. Eh? And then tie a bunch of curly ribbon around the banana stem. Totally.

And then - THEN - just because all of that makes way too much sense, the baker could sprinkle something really ridiculous all around the shrinkwrapped smiley-face banana with curly ribbon tied on its stem. Something like...I dunno...little tiny dog bones.

Yeah. That would be one AWESOME wreck. Hypothetically speaking, of course.


Right, April A.?

That's actually kind of adorable.

I'm sitting here looking at a browning banana on my table and thinking at least this shrink wrapped one was yellow and not brown spotty!
