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? ;)

Here Comes The Snide

In honor of all the summer weddings this month, I decided to sing a little song.

(With apologies to Nat King Cole.)

 

Unforgettable...

That's what you are.

 

Unforgettable!

Beyond subpar!

 

Like a song of love that CLINGS to me...

(ew)

 

How the thought of you does THINGS to me...

(seeing...red...)

Never before has something been mooore...

 

UNFORGETTABLE!!

Someone will pay!

 

And forever moooore...

They'll rue the day!

 

That's why darling...

It's incredible...

 

That a wreck...

So unforgettable...

 

Could also be so...

...dang inedible too.

 

Thanks to Christin S., Amanda C., Rachael H., Jessi T., Anony M., Chase C., Amy S., Angela I., & Susan C. for scaring all the brides-to-be out there.

Celebrating the "Yes" with a bunch of "No"s

There are usually a lot of weddings in June, so I know you're getting sick of all those perfectly lovely wedding and engagement cakes by now, aren't you? [patting your hand] Well don't you worry, dear; that's what I'm here for.

First, fellas, take note: This is NOT how you do it.

"So I was picking up some salami, right? And I see this cupcake thing. Anyway, long story short, I figure, hey, it's cheaper than a real one, and I could go for some nosh right now anyway..."

 

Once the engagement is set, some couples like to celebrate by getting something big, shiny, and misspelled:

 

While others like adopting fun new aliases...

 

Some couples like to keep the guests guessing:

"So did they get their degree, or are they getting married?"
(Answer: getting married. Yes, really.)

 

Or freaking out the family with something that looks like it should come with a ransom note:

Aaaeeeeiii!!

"Pay up, Bub, or your fiance loses her other hand."

 

Hey, Paula T., Anony, Veronica, Amanda G., & Anony 2, [pointing with two fingers] engage.

(I've always wanted to do that.)

 

****

BONUS FUN FACT: Not only is that final cake one of my favorite wrecks of all time, it also had a hand in (get it??) two readers getting engaged back in 2015!

 Now that's romance.
