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? ;)

SKYNET IS COMING!

But probably not anytime soon.

 

Last month the BBC reported on a new chocolate 3D printer, which is being called "a step towards manufacturing a device able to print flawless 3D objects that taste good."

Now, if you're concerned that this might adversely affect the wreckage, don't be. From the looks of their press release photos, I think we're going to be juuuuuust fine:

(You can read more about the chocolate printer here.)

Not to mention there's already talk of "3D faces." Oh yeah. This is gonna be goooood.

Next, according to Tasteologie, this baking robot is "a little heavy-handed with the spatula."

According to the commenters on Youtube, we will soon all be spatula'd to death. (But 'til then, I'll keep snort-giggling at 0:37 and 1:40)

 

Thanks to Ananda S. and @glennztees for the snazzy wreckporting. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm off to learn the binary rap in The Humans are Dead. You know, just in case.

We Have A "Winner"!

"You keep using that word. I dunna think it means what you think it means."

Although this IS pretty inconceivable.

 

Thanks to Richard B., the wedding photographer who turned in his own clients' groom's cake. I like you, Richard.
