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? ;)

Market "Shares"

When it comes to advertising their goods, this bakery knows just how to squeak by:

IT'S A TRAP!!


Of course, not every label can be so appetizing:

Because "Ball Sack" was just a little too formal.

 

And speaking of Balzac...

Let's be realistic: It's French. No one will notice.

 

Now here's a place that knows just how to garner the most business with their promotional mailers:

Yep, blurring out their contact information was definitely the right move.

 

And finally, this bakery gets the gold star for truth in advertising:

Hey, you can't say they didn't warn you.

Against The Grain

Y'know...

...maybe the bride shouldn't have ordered a whole wheat wedding cake.

 

Thanks to Sasha M., for helping us remember the first year is always the harvest hardest.

Update From Jen: 

 

I see your stalks of wheat, Sharyn, and raise you...

THIS.

 

Thanks to Robert V. for making like a tree, and swaying in high winds.

(I'd ask you readers who won, but considering these were both wedding cakes, I guess we already know who lost. Heh.)

Update from john (the hubby of Jen) 

 

Ooh, ooh! My turn!

Sha-POW! Take THAT! Haha!

 

Thanks to Adrienne H.  for helping me needle my fellow writers. I'm pretty sure I sapped their strength. Also, my house is a bit messy so I should probably spruce up the place!

Three! THREE PUNS!!! AH. AH. AH!
