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? ;)

Happy Falker Satherhood!

Ashley J. had two male coworkers each expecting a child, so the office decided to get them a cake. They wanted it to say, "Happy Fatherhood Shawn and Glenn".

Instead, they got this:

Like you, I'm sure, Ashley & the gang were just dying to know what the decorator thought he or she was writing, exactly. So, they decided to go find out. Yep, that's right: They grabbed a video camera (did I mention they work at the Fox television animation studio?) and strolled down the street to pay a little visit to the bakery in question.

Here's what happened next (the best bits are in the first 2 minutes):

"It's like a word journey" - hilarious. Oh, and Ashley writes "Please forgive the Tickle-Me-Elmo laughter coming from behind the camera...that's me."

Ashley, I think it's safe to say we all forgive you. It's just too bad the manager didn't have as much of a sense of humor as you guys did; after all, I think you and Rebner were extremely pleasant about it, all things considered. :)



Thank you for using our Amazon links to shop! USA, UK, Canada.

Oh! This one is a classic! Gotta love the sense of humor of those guys, you just have to.

The mystery still remains. What the decorator was thinking???

No Tere, the question that still remains is "what was the decorator drinking?"

I thought when the manager was taking money out of the drawer she was going to say something like:
"A mistake like this earns a refund of 32 cents. Here you go. Have a nice day".

How about a new CW Chapter: "CAKEWRECKS WITH SPRINKLES: AFTER THE WRECK!" Customer follow up pieces. 'My Dear Wreck receivers, did you receive the lovely cake you thought you ordered and upon first look was WHAT THE !**#!!! Well, go out and confront those professionals and find out WHAT WERE YOU THINKING?...yes, people, video record it, document it, or plain just write and tell us about it. Cake-Wreck-A-Holics will thank you for it! 'cuz we want to know too! Of course I'm not sure Jen and John (thoj) will like getting even more pictures, cards, emails, videos etc. to add to the zillions they already receive, so sorry that J & J :)

I doubt even the wreckerator knows why they did this lol. Other than creating a really interesting and confusing way to say happy Father's Day lol.
