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? ;)

Literally Helping

Bakers, sometimes it helps to remember the 5 Ws:

Who:

 

What:

 

Er, let's try that again. What?

That's better.

 

When:

 

Where:

 

WHY GAWD WHY:

 

And then you can add an H, for "How?"

See how helpful that was?

Though next time we should probably talk about your coffee orders:

::sigh::

Underwhelmingly Bad Wedding Cakes

You ever see a cake and have one of those reactions like: "Ooooh, that's not good. I mean, it could be worse, I guess, but still, really not good. What was it for? ... A wedding?! OH THAT POOR BRIDE."

That's today's cakes.

 

They're all a bit sad...

 

A bit lumpy-bumpy...

 

A bit, "Oh. OH. Um, how... nice?"

 

When your wedding's "cupcake tower" looks like something you made during the slumber party for your 14th birthday:

 

Or when there's more wire in your wedding cake than the average 14-year-old's braces:

o.0

 

You know how in movies when the bad guy lets loose with a machine gun on a wall somewhere, leaving lines of bullet holes that the light shines through?

Imagine the gun shoots roses:

BAM.

(Yes, I know otherwise it's fine. JUST LET ME HAVE THIS.)

 

And finally, whatever you do, don't think about stretched skin.

Or parsley.

STOP IT.
