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? ;)

6 Cakes That Fail Hilariously At Looking Like The Things They're Supposed To Look Like, Vol 101

Let's hope these bakers are never on your Pictionary team.

 

A Barbie Princess Tiara:

All I see is a giant cat's paw. Does Barbie have a cat? Is this somehow related? Am I over-thinking this? Where are you all going?

 

A Bucket of Popcorn:

The "Movie Night" really sells it.

 

A Wine Glass:

If only we could all age like wine older, am I right?

 

A Mustache:

Looks like "Dad" has a hairy situation on his hands.

Kinda love the belligerent octopus cupcakes, though. They're all, "Put 'em up, put 'em uuup!"

 

A Fighter Jet:

I swear I'm not making this up.

 

And finally, a pair of lips:

NOT THOSE LIPS YOU SICKO.

Yeesh. You show a person a penis cake or fifty, and suddenly their mind is, like, ALWAYS in the gutter.

What We Have Here Is A Failure To Communicate

I'm always fascinated by the breakdown in communication that can occur when you order a cake. I love figuring out what went wrong just by looking at the cake; it beats any crossword puzzle or word jumble.

 

Sometimes the explanation is pretty straight forward:

 

As you can see, there is in fact a "Coca Cola can/bottle" on this cake.

 

Other times there's a severe misunderstanding from the get-go:

I like to think that if they'd spelled "capital" correctly they might have figured it out.

Sometimes you specifically ask for little plastic "Happy Birthday sticks" stuck in your order of cupcakes:

Other times you're just not specific enough:

And sometimes, on wonderful, rare occasions, you get an amazingly talented baker. A baker with mad piping skills, a steady hand, and perfect spelling. A baker who, incidentally, is also a little hard of hearing. So, when you get this baker, and you want to order a giant Gerber daisy on your cake, just be sure you enunciate really, really well.

Because otherwise...

 

You might get the Gerber Baby.

 

(Yes, really. Scout's honor.)

 

A big "thanks" in all caps to Heather F., Brianne H., Jessie B., Kristina R., & Kelly Y., who had some 'splaining to do on her last birthday.
