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? ;)

Some of my favorite new submission this week:

 

If that Frozen fiasco on Monday taught us anything, it's to be specific when you order a cake. After all, as Lynn's grandmother discovered, one person's "Ninja Turtle cake" is another's "Meh, just stick an empty pencil box on it."

I like how the green sprinkles really tie the whole thing together.

 

And speaking of Frozen, don't you hate it when you post a whole bunch of Frozen cake kit wrecks, only to have THE BEST ONE EVER come in the very next day?

Admit it, bakers: at this point you're just screwing with me.

 

Now, you might think that if a bakery only had to put a single edible image on a cake - an image that you made and printed out for them - then there'd be no possible way for that to go wrong.

You might think that...

...but you would be so, so wrong.

(Clearly the baker just wanted to protect the identities of those poor musicians.)

 

Indecent Proposal:

 

 

Tricia actually wanted the baker to draw a sad face, but I think this still works:

Awww.

 

And finally,

The Good News: Airbrush stencils are easy, guarantee correct spelling, and save time!

The Bad News: People are still dumb.

Bummer.

 

Thanks to Lynn M., MJ, Robin C., Liz A., Tricia M., & Tia K., who's pretty sure that baker will never invent Skynet, so hey, SILVER LINING.

"Write!" Said Fred

It's handwriting analysis week, minions, so I'm here to demonstrate this fascinating science.
What does your baker's work say about them? Let's find out!

 

- Passive-aggressive

 

- Uses "jazz hands"

 

- Writes erotic Zombie fan-fic

 

- Cries during yogurt commercials

 

- twerks

 

- Collects spores, molds, and fungus

 

- Has to pee

 

- Pushes ALL the elevator floor buttons

 

- Gym grunter

 

- Conspiracy theorist

 

- Magician

 

Hope this helps you see those wrecks in a whole new light, minions! And remember: an upward slanting signature with extra long loopy bits means you have excellent taste in websites, so congrats on that.

 

Thanks to Kate M., Jill S., Johnny E., Sara G., Sarah S., Kelly D., David F., Jasmine K., Lacey C., Jenny H., & Shelly D., who are all too sexy for my party.
