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? ;)

This Nicolas Cage Cookie Is A National Treasure

So a bakery made an... interesting... choice for their latest online ad.

[head tilt]

Huh.

That's Nic Cage?

Right.

John?

You know what to do.

 

 

 

 

And my personal favorite:

John: "You know Ghost Rider doesn't have his face, right? So this makes no sense?"

Me:

 

Thanks to Barbara B., who bets that cookie was gone in 60 seconds.

Trace Amounts Of Wreckage

Remember those old drawing contests they used to advertise in the backs of magazines? The ones with a picture of a turtle or a pirate you were supposed to copy?

Well, Melissa decided to try that route with her bakery. She gave them this picture of a frog and asked them to copy it:

 

Aaaand...

Ouch.

Don't worry though, bakers; I still see artistic potential here. In fact, if you send me money every month I'll continue critiquing your work FOR FREE. Eh?

 

And if you believe that one, here's another:

Samira ordered this giant cupcake (made of smaller cupcakes and apparently photographed with a potato), and here's the crazy thing: she was told she would actually GET that cake.

Bahahahaha!

I'm sorry. I shouldn't laugh. It's just, I've seen the next picture.

 

Ready?

Sha-POW.

Seriously, minions, don't order cupcake cakes (patooie!) - and never EVER order a cupcake cupcake cake. I think it breaks the space time continuum.

 

And lastly, Kristy gave her bakery this napkin to match for a baby shower cake:

The bakery then did something I've never seen before.

That's right, you guys, this is a first!

The bakery started with an edible image - which looked fine - but then traced over the image with icing, resulting in the kind of nightmare fuel you don't generally see outside of Five Nights At Freddy's:

The longer you look, the scarier it gets.

Plus I like how the baker just stopped about 80% of the way through. Like, "WHELP THAT'S RUINED, guess I'll just leave the palm leaves and border and donkey face off now." o.0

 

Thanks to Melissa G., Sarah H.,& Kristy H. for reminding there is ALWAYS a new way to wreck it. Always.
