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? ;)

Today's Wreck is like two Jeopardy answers.

The questions?

[over the phone] "Sorry, I can't hear you - what was that?"


"When would you like to pick it up?"

I'll give you a moment.

Actually, the real story behind this cake is almost as good: it was supposed to read "I'm breaking up with you, Dave" as a joke.

Well, Blaise C., at least it IS still a joke. (Ooh! Burn!!)


Just Beachy

Summer's here!

Time to celebrate the sandy beaches, pink and orange sunsets, and crystal blue waters of the...uh...


"And the sky didst turn black, and the sea to ash, and lo, the Wreckerator did thusly expendeth her wrath upon the pink paper umbrella. Eth."

(Before you ask, no, this isn't another oil spill cake: it was sent in last year.)

Gee, bakers, all you need for a decent beach cake is some water and a palm tree. How hard is that?

Ok, let me rephrase that.

How about just a palm tree? A nice, simple, cheery...

Great gobs of corpulent crappy coconuts, what is THAT?!?

Right. Um, let's get back to the beach scenes, shall we?

Looks like someone's beach birthday has a heavy chance of sprinkles:

Yeesh. Now that is a crumby way to color a cake.

Still, I guess it's better than this "beach umbrella" here:

Or as I like to call it: "Sprinkled poo dreams, in four movements"

Ally F., Alyska B., Jodee R., Shae, & Colleen M., this is one time when I can honestly say I don't want sprinkles.
