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? ;)

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.

With Apologies To Julie Andrews


♫ Bulbous-nosed witches who probably eat kittens


Messages piped out that should be rewritten

(Supposed to read "Congratulations Wojtek From Thunder Road")

 

Cakes decorated with smeared silly string

Bakers make some of the wreckiest things!

 

Is that a tongue sticking out of that poodle?


 Were they attempting to make ersatz noodles?


"Congradulations" with Doritos rings

Bakers make some of the wreckiest things!

 

Plumber's jeans that don't quite cover their "assets"


Creepy-faced smiley with too-thick eyelashes


Harry and Gollum and wands holding rings

 Bakers make some of the wreckiest things!

 

Though these dogs might

Be all frosting

 Though these cakes are bad!

I simply remember these wreckiest things

And then I just can't

Feel sad! ♪

 

 BIG thanks to Katie G., Victoria L., J.R., Vanessa M., Lisa H., Pete Z., Andrea G., Darla H., Becca T., Rachel L., and J.C.  You know you're my favorites, right?
