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 submissions this week.


Look out, "Mom."

They're on to you.


They asked for "Happy Birthday Levi" in red icing, written in the top center of the cake:



"John without the H?"



Ever wonder what would happen if a cake and a beehive had a transporter accident?



I dunno about you guys, but the bee butts sticking out of the right side are freaking me right the heck out.


And finally, Jennifer's Summer School director wanted to celebrate their mid-way point with an "over the hump day!" cake. However, "she knew she was in trouble," Jennifer writes, "When the worker taking her order didn't know how to spell 'the.'"

I'm sure some of you have been there, making a phone order and wondering what, exactly, the baker was writing down on the other end. Well, in Jennifer's case, we know!

With an order form like this, WHAT COULD GO WRONG.

("Writhing" is oddly appropriate.)


Oh, right. This:

I think we can all agree this is definitely "gren" and "diferent."

Oh, and:

Getting To Know You...

It's Getting To Know Your Customers Day!

So, bakers, I thought I'd introduce you to a few from the CW audience:







That little boy's face = me when I see a Whoopie Pie.


(That's the bride in green.)


Oh, and the next time you decide to cover a cake with black icing, bakers, please:



It's not all bad, though. In fact, Becky's 6-year-old daughter just found the cake she wants for her next birthday, and it's totally do-able.


From the Cake Wrecks book, no less!

Becky, you're clearly raising this kid right. Kudos.

And bakers, don't screw this one up. Or if you do, please remind Becky to send me a picture. :D


Thanks to Dawn S., Larissa S., Susan D., Jan M., Carol Ann, Brianna A., Christiana M., Amanda H., Kim C., & Becky S. for seeing "Dead People."


And now,

Cannot. Handle. Teh cute.
