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? ;)

Absolutely Ribbeting

Y'know, maybe we're being unrealistic to expect acceptable cakes EVERY time we order.

I mean, what's that expression?

"You've got to kiss a lot of frogs to fi-..."

No, sorry, I said "frog."

 

Try again?

Still no.

 

You know, frog. Green. Hops. Lives in swamps.

[long silence]

 

I think we both know you can do better than THAT.

OK.

 

We both were wrong.

Really?!

 

Stop it.

 

LOOK, I just want ONE vaguely frog-like cake so I can do a kissing metaphor here. Is that asking too much?

Ew. Like ANYONE's going to want to kiss that.

Well played, bakers.

Well played.

 

Even though they almost made us croak, we jumped for joy when Deborah B., Kelly P., Wesley T., Loren K., Shae, Amy F., & Nicole F. sent these to our pad.

5 Bakers Who Bit Off More Than They Could Chew

My friends, cake decorating can be hard. Why do you think we have so much material? But bakers can make their jobs a lot easier by just knowing their limitations.

For instance, bakers, say someone asks you to make a groom's cake that looks like their BMW:

...but you're just figuring out what "edible markers" are.

 

In that case, maybe say no.

See how much better that would have been?

 

Ok, now let's practice together! I'll play the customer.

Hi! Can you make me a cake that looks like this shoe?

 

Now you say, "No. No, I can't."

 

I'd really love Maleficent on a cake! Can you do that?

 

"No. No, I can't."

 

Aw, then how about Tinkerbell?

 

"Sure! No probl... I mean, no. No, I can't."

 

 

See how easy that is? And hey, being able to say no to orders you can't do will give you more time for the ones you can!

Or you could just fill the donuts.

 

Thanks to Lesley H., Molly H., Sheyla S., John A., & Michelle R., who advises steering clear of the Stay Puft donuts, since we all know where THAT leads.
