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? ;)

Why are there
so many
songs...

By Wild Orchid Baking Co

 

...about rainbows?

By The Greedy Baker

 

And what's on the other side?

By Molly's Creative Cakes

 

Rainbows are visions,
but only illusions,

By Art2eatCakes

and rainbows have nothing
to hide.

 

So we've been told and some choose to believe it.

I know they're wrong, wait and see.

Submitted by Dagbjört, made by Reddit user MaGNeTIX's father. Details here.

 

Someday we'll find it, the rainbow connection.

Friday Favs 6/26/15

Some of my favorite submissions this week:

 

They asked for mountains:

And never has "Good Luck" looked quite so sarcastic.

 

Tessa tells me this wedding cake was supposed to look like bark:

Bark, huh?

Well, it DOES look pretty "ruff."

Eh? EH?

Oh, who asked you.

 

Guess where they wanted the 10:

"What am I, a mind reader?"

 

Not since the fictional peanut butter truck collided with the fictional chocolate truck has such a brilliant combination been accidentally discovered!!!

Just kidding.

But let's be honest: Duck Dynasty Hunger Games? You'd watch it.

 

And finally, Kelley asked for this wedding cake design:

Except with red pearls and no flowers.

 

Unfortunately, her baker confused "pearls" with "Atomic Fireballs.*"

...and then apparently smoothed out the icing with a hairbrush.

Bummer.


*Anyone else remember Atomic Fireballs? Those spicy cinnamon jawbreakers?

I'm... I'm showing my age again, aren't I.

Drat.

 

Thanks to Jessica G., Tessa R., Lauren R., Lisa W., Andrea L., & Kelley T. for the giggles.
