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? ;)

How It Might Have Happened

"Hello? Yes, I'd like to order a cake that looks like my husband's Audi. That's right, an Audi. And could you make it a nice coppery brown? Thanks!"

Alisha E., don't tell me that's not really what happened, because I choose to believe it is. So there.

Literally? LITERALLY.

Gina's birthday is the 4th of July, so last week her hubby John ordered a patriotic cake for the occasion. The bakery had several jars of plastic decorations sitting around, so John pointed at one and asked the bakers to put "some of those stars in the jar" on the cake.

Which... they kind of did?

Oy, what a crock.

 

Meanwhile, in the more straightforward camp:

NAILED IT.

 

Neither of which can compare to that heartfelt sentiment that thrills each of us to our very core:

I'm sure that's code for, "You're the Apple of my eye," Carrie.
