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? ;)

There, I Fixed It

"Aw, rats. I forgot to capitalize the H on this birthday cake."

"Hm."

[scrapescrapescrape]

"There! Perfect."

"Madison did such a great job, earning her brown belt in Karate! Oh, but wait...she's a GIRL, isn't she? Oops. Huh. This graphic has two boys on it."

"Well, no problem. I've got it covered."


"Yep, that was a hairy problem, but I sure got it covered. Heh. Aheh."

Wrong name? Nooo problem.

[whispering] No one will EVER know.


Nelia, Elizabeth F., & Rachael, good job thanks! Oh, and if you're DIY buffs, you should check out the site where I ripped off got today's title - it's funny stuff.

The Joker's Revenge

Thank goodness for those big photo books at the bakery counter. You know, the ones with all the cake designs in them? Yeah. Without those, how would we ever know what toys come with the cake?

What's that? You thought the books showed the cake designs, too? Ah. Please excuse me for a moment, while I turn my head and laugh heartily at your oh-so-sweet naivete.

HAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAH! Ahah.

I do so love shattering expectations.

Here's what Naomi J. ordered:

"Taxi!"

Aaand what she received:

Great slithering slabs of slime-secreting slugs, Sally!
(Sorry Naomi; I needed an S name.)

Note how all that airbrush dye pools together and glistens wetly in the light. Mmm. And the way that blackened, moldy green offsets the fluorescent green border. Yeah, that's tasty. And, of course, there's the eclair-filling slug bombs; can't forget those.

However, you should also note - and in the decorator's defense - that the batman toys look exactly the same. Hooray, photo book!
