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? ;)

You Pig!

Attention minions raising smaller minions:

Have you ever noticed something... off... about Peppa Pig's nose?

I only ask because I keep getting Peppa Pig cakes over here, and they're surprisingly, er, adult for a kids' cake, if you know what I mean.

Admit it: if you'd never seen Peppa Pig before this would make you spit out your Diet Coke. I mean, what is that lizard doing?

 

Granted, if you do know what Peppa looks like, that's not too bad.

[sing-song] BUT THISSSS IS!

Flashing Flops Of Fleshy Flaccid Frosting, Batman!

My theory is these bakers see exactly what we see - c'mon, let's call a dong a dong here - but they're so determined to NOT see it that their subconscious takes over, gleefully piping out penises left and right because "WE'RE ALLOWED TO NOW, IT'S A PIG NOSE! WHEEEEEE!"

C'mon, that's basically every 9-year-old boy's dream job.

But still, bakers, at some point you've gone too far.
And that point is riiiiiight around.... here:

Oink oink, motherfluffers.

Name That Wreck!

I think we can all agree that if your name is pronounced "Elizabeth" but spelled with three "I"s and a silent "Q", then you void your right to complain when a baker gets it wrong.

However, there are times when you think the baker might have stopped to question somewhere along the line:

"Jackign?" Is that supposed to be Jacking? And if so, who names their child Jacking??


Never mind.

 

I've seen "Bart" turned to "Brat," "Brian" turned to "Brain," and "Tink" turned to "Fink" - but nothing beats the nickname Chris just picked up:


Words cannot express how much I hope they served this with water.

[That's right, Chris: you just got SUNDAY SCHOOLED.]

 

Of course, Doug's new moniker is slightly less complimentary:

But I'm sure he rose to the occasion anyway.

 

I like to think this is a cake for the Riddler's quintuplets:

But that's a questionable theory.

(In reality, they asked for the name to be written in Cyrillic.)

 

Look, bakers, I know there are lots of unusual spellings and strange name choices out there these days, but just remember:

If at first you don't succeed, 

try it again in cursive directly underneath.

See? Bob's your uncles!

 

Thanks to Rae Lynn, Lizz H., Tom H., Jill C., Joel H., & Stacey T. for leaving out all the silent Qs.
