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? ;)

The Airbrush: Saving Cake Decorators from Decorating for Over 10 Years


Someone really needs to pry the airbrush out of the hands of these cake decorators; it’s impeding the art. I can almost see the commercial now…

“Spending too much time designing and decorating your cakes? Want a fast, easy way that requires absolutely no forethought? Buy an airbrush! Yes, folks, that’s right: just load any random color in this little beauty and spray away to your heart’s content – no rhyme, reason, or pattern necessary! Is your cake lop-sided? Icing cracking or runny? Are you artistically challenged, or even color-blind? NO PROBLEM!! Once your customers see that you actually own a food-grade airbrush, they’ll have to think you’re a pro! So call today!"

This unhealthy dependence may call for a nation-wide intervention, folks.

Don’t Laugh; They’re "Special"


I think these guys should team up with the poison bon-bon cake, given the fatality risk of eating real puffer fish. At least, I think those are supposed to be puffer fish; the one on the right (my right, people) looks a bit like a smushed hedgehog – all he needs are some tire treads across the back. Come to think of it, that would explain the bug-eyes...

If this continues, I may have to start a "Poisonous" category - something I never would have imagined needing on a cake blog. What next? Poison Dart Frog cakes? (You know they're out there, don't you? Let's see who can find one first. And...Go!!)

Many thanks to Mary P. for sharing her catch.
