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? ;)

Err Supply

I know just how to ice it


And I know just how to sell


I know just how to read instructions


And I know just how too spell!


I know how to make a moose head

 

And I know how to make a bear


 I know just how to write "Amurersary"


And I know what to do with hair!


And I know just how to stack cake...


And I know when I've gone too far!

AND I'M PROBABLY GONNA CHARGE YOU EVEN THOUGH IT TOPPLED OVER 'CAUSE I REALLY HAVE TO PAY FOR MY CAR!

 

 But I don't think you should judge me

 
Just because it's hard to read my scra-ah-awl...

 

'Cuz you know I'll always be here

Making caa-aake

Look like nothing at all

{Making cake!}

 

Look like nothing at all

{Making ca-ay-ake!}

 

Look like nothing at all

Ahhh-awwww-AH!

 Ahhhh-awwww-AH!

 AHHHHHH!!

 AHHHHHH!!!

 
THIS LOOKS LIKE NOTHING AT ALL!

Bakin' Memories

So, you're getting married! Good work.

Now, the first thing you have to ask yourselves is this: "How do we make our cake memorable?"

And not just the "oh-that-was-such-a-pretty-cake" kind of memorable, either; I'm talking the "CALL-EVERYONE-WE-KNOW-AND-ALERT-THE-MEDIA" kind of memorable. 

Allow me to offer a couple suggestions.

 

- You could dance on the head of Cousin Itt: 

Or possibly a large hay stack.

 

- You could plaster a plaster cast of yourselves tongue-kissing on top of a badly-glued-together pair of sheet cakes:

(Hey, baker, that seam in the middle? SmoooOOooooth.)

 

Oh, and just to nip an impending Epcot in the bud, here's the uncropped version of Cousin It:

How much you wanna bet the guests were asking what a haystack had to do with all those pictures of mountains? :D

  

Thanks to Kate V. & Sten W. for the memories.

Note from john: I had to take down one of the cakes.  It was horrible but not professional.  Bummer.
