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? ;)

Militarized Pool Noodles

Some folks ordered a cake shaped like the Pentagon, and to be safe, even brought in a picture:

 

They got this:

(The misspelling is what I call "adding insult to a headdesk-induced injury.")

 

Next Jas ordered this bright and beautiful design:

 

But instead, she got liquefied pool noodles:

Mmm. Now there's a texture to get your mouth watering!

(Srsly, what do you have to do to icing to make it look like that? Do I even want to know? Because if it involves someone's toothbrush, I'm pretty sure I don't want to.)

 

And finally, I'm going to end with something that's not cake, but trust me, it's worth it.

See, the group "Sisters By Grace" sent flowers to one of their members a while back, and the card turned up looking like this:

The Sister's Bike Race. Ha!

Ah, but wait, it get better.

Naturally, the Sisters reacted to the goof by doing what any sensible group would do:

They turned it into the group's official t-shirts.

They even included the "love & prayer's" line. :D

See? Told ya it was worth it.

 

Thanks to Sheri, Jas C., & Julie P. for giving non-baking wreckerators a little race.

Enough Shopping, Let's Have Some Sweets!

"Get your gift shopping done on Black Friday," they said.

"It'll be fun!" they said.

So you set ALL the alarms...

(By Sweet Sugarbelle)

...because early is HARD. I get it.

 

You grabbed a nutritious breakfast,

...then headed out the door.

 

And you were a shopping machine, snapping up deals, crossing names off your list!

But now it's two days later, and you've officially - what's that phrase?

Oh, yeah.

HIT A WALL.

(By Jessica Harris Cake Design)

Hey, that's OK!

You got a LOT done this weekend, so now it's YOU time.

 

First, why not take some aspirin for that headache?

I hear sprinkles help them go down easier.

 

Maybe you should soothe those muscles in a warm tub.

Come on, you know you love rubber ducks.

 

Then how about a quick nap?

Didn't that help?

 

Ooh, now grab yourself a glass of wine.

(Created by Connor Jackson, for Craftsy)

Or, sure, two glasses of wine - plus some snacks.

 

Wait, is there pie? Grab that, too.

(By Laura Loukaides Cakes)

I meant just a slice, but hey, whatever works.

 

Now, get settled in for a quiet evening on the couch.

(By Catherine's Cakery - no longer in business, links to her Pinterest page)

Ooh, skittles. Good idea.

 

There, now. Don't you feel better?

Go on, shoot us a selfie, so we can see that restored twinkle in your eyes!

(By Crazy sweets)

[gasp]

Uh, WOW. I mean, uh, it's just... you take my breath away.

Really.
[pause]

Maybe next year you should consider online shopping.

 

Happy Sunday, everyone! I hope you had a nice, restful weekend!
