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? ;)

Not That Long Ago, In A Bakery Far From Okay... 

In case you missed it, Jen and John just built something insane, which they ROCKED at Star Wars Celebration last weekend.

I feel like a Star Wars theme is appropriate.

 

Quick, Luke, use the 4rth!

(It was then Obi Wan realized getting braces was a bad idea.)

 

"It's as if millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror, and were suddenly silenced."

"...with cookies."

(Granted, there are worse ways to be silenced.)

 

If Han and Leia were really into puns:

 

"I nose."

 

"Luke, *I* am your Farther."

"It's kind of a long-distance thing? Like, did you get my postcards?"

 

"Do. Or do not. There is no try."

"...."

"Did not, oh no you did. DID NOT."

 

"They see me rollin'...

"THEY BB-HATIN'."

 

OK, Vader, big finale time! Show us those pearly whites!

Theeeere it is.

 

Thanks Rachel V., Kimberly, Cassondra R., Evelyn D., Amy E., Emily M., Heidi L., and Micaline P., you were our only hope.

The Basket Case

Ahh, those pesky unsold Easter cakes. I feel your pain, bakers. Or rather, I *see* it:

And that IS quite the pickle.

But never fear.

I AM HERE TO HELP.

Listen, like everything in life, this problem can be easily solved by a little thing called re-branding.

So.

What do you see here? An evil lamb cake?

Or is it an evil CLOWN cake? Hmmm?

Right? That's an instant tie-in to Stephen King's IT!

 

And now you can stop trying to convince your customers this is a bunny:

And instead start insisting it's Hello Kitty!

 

A tisket, a tasket, *I* see a UFO blowing a gasket:

 

And speaking of the truth being "out there," clearly your fruit department is ready to fill a much-needed gap in the horror sub-genre of grocery shopping:

Goodbye "spring chicks," hellooooo alien chest-bursters!

 

And speaking of bursting [HEYOOO], how are your bachelorette designs coming?

Because I'd say you've definitely got a handle on 'em now.

 

Thanks to Brittanie H., Angi O., Rebecca B., Shirley W., Julieanne B., & Adrienne G. for helping us come to grips with a whole new kind of Easter egg. o.0
