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? ;)

Flotsam R Us

It has come to our attention that many bakers struggle with filling orders properly. That's why we here at Flotsam R Us offer a wide variety of attractive, low-cost, non-edible solutions for the professional bakery.

For example, we have a large selection of plastic "Happy Birthday" picks:

OR "Happy Birthday" plaques:

For bakers who prefer an airbrush, we also offer a 'Happy Birthday' stencil!

And just in time for grad season, we've got a brand new "Congrats, Grad" sticker in stock:

For your more artistically challenged bakers, we also offer plastic flotsam in the shape of musical notes...

... and stars!

Of course, training your bakers how to actually USE our products is completely up to you. So, uh...

Good luck with that.


Thanks to Emily H., Molly S., Angie M., Gina R., Amber C., Brittni J., & Uri S. for the flotsam flops.

Cake #3 looks suspiciously like the same icing job as the original Wreck - the one with "Under Neat That We Will Miss You"

I love how so long (in purple) used every color EXCEPT purple.
Head desk - so hard that I'm seeing the words 'stars' circling my head

@Jodee -- Mr. Potato tells me he has been a little sidetracked recently, but will return soon, and said to thank you for thinking of him and the firm. He and I both hope you and yours are doing well.

Last absolutely killed me. Had to stare for a second to make sure those were actually flowers and not piles of icing crap.

My 10 year old son says "Who hired these people?" He's not even old enough to get a job and would probably do a better job. That's saying something since he has a strong rest ethic. ;)
