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? ;)

AND DON'T CALL HIM "PATTY"

Today we come together as a nation to celebrate St. Patrick's Day in the most thoughtful, respectful manner possible...

...while insinuating Irish people are a bunch of drunk leprechauns.

 

As a person of Irish heritage myself, I'm actually more disturbed by whatever's happening here:

Whatever it is, it is WAY too happy to see you.

 

Or here:

[Monty Python voice]: PLAGUE.

 

Or the fact that green plastic hats somehow make any cake St. Patrick's Day appropriate:

Sláinte.

 

So whether you get your rocks off with that whole kissing thing:

Never to be taken for granite.

 

Or by asking bakers if they happen to have 6 fingers on their right hand:

INCONCEIVABLE.

 

Here's hoping you have a delightful St. Patrick's Day, minions.

Now, go enjoy one of these traditional Irish treats:

...while Internet commenters everywhere give their yearly speech on how "St. Patrick wasn't even Irish."

Ahhh, holidays.

 

Thanks to Annie & Matt, Abbey R., Tracie F., Anne B., Andrew M., Bekka N., Molly S., & Interweb mansplainers everywhere for the inspiration to drink more.

On The Plus Side, It's Never Too Soon To Introduce Your Five-Year-Old To Power Point

If you've been hanging around this blog for a while, then you probably remember the infamous Flash Drive wreck.

That's the one where someone brought in a photo on a flash drive, but instead of using the photo, the bakery recreated the flash drive itself on the cake. It's one of the most epic Cake Wrecks of all time, and taught us all a valuable lesson about the boundless nature of human derpitude.

I'm guessing Matthew here missed the flash drive post, though, because not only did he bring one in for his daughter's fifth birthday cake, he also had more than one photo on the drive.

In Matthew's defense, there were only two images on the drive to choose from: one, his daughter's favorite cartoon character, and the other, a Power Point flow chart from his company.

I'll give you two guesses which one the bakery used.

Aw, you guessed it, didn't you? See, I just can't surprise you guys anymore.

 

Thanks to Matt M. & little Gia for proving a Communication Network Decision Tree can be just as magical as Disney princesses, only the exact opposite of that.
