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? ;)

And For That Crowning Touch...

So Shawn sent in this "specialty" cake:

Which might lead one to question what their "specialty" is. Hmm. Things from Down Under, perhaps? [smirk]

Now, I know what you're thinking. You're thinking, "Gee, Jen, I wish I could see that from another angle and with more color saturation," aren't you? Aha! I knew it. Well, luckily for you, Formica D. also sent in a photo of the exact same cake:


Wow. I don't know about you guys, but seeing that top "pile" in all its glistening glory is greatly grossing me out. Ick.

By the way, given that the displayed goods next to the cake went from ghostly strawberries to turkey cupcakes, just how long do you suppose it's been sitting there? Long enough to attract flies, perhaps?

The Sprinkles Decorator Strikes Again


What do you think, Steve B.? Are we dealing with a serial Wrecker here?
