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? ;)

Willy & Wally, the Cake Wreckers

"Say Wally, what did you do to this cake? The airbrushing looks horrible!"

"Really? Rats. Sorry, Willy. I was going for a 'spacey' look."

"'Spacey'? Two big red asterisks on a blue background?"

"Uh, they're supposed to be stars. You know, for Star Wars? See, the mom brought in this Darth Vader plate for reference."

[looking from plate to cake] "Well, we can't give them this - it looks more like a Spider Man or Superman cake."

"Yeah, I guess you're right. So what should I do? The airbrushing seeped into most of the icing, so I can't scrape it off."

"Hmmmm. Lemme see that plate again...and fetch me the scissors, will ya?"


"Oooh, that's MUCH better. Thanks, Willy."

"No problem, Wally. You see, with a little ingenuity, you really can save almost anything."

"You think they'll be Ok with the candles?"

"Of course! They add up to 13, right?"

"Well, yeeesss..."

"Then quit whining! Unless YOU want to go buy more '3's."

Monique R., clearly you already know the powers of the Wrecky side. Good work.

When Common Sense Isn't

You're right, Benoit; I'm guessing they didn't get that tip, either.

Nice to see that they understood that there was something important about the 12 bit, though. Do you suppose the wreckerator was putting that extra layer of icing on and wondering what the big deal was about the number 12, anyway?


Thank goodness that all fit, Diane V.; I don't know WHAT the decorator could have done to shorten the inscription. Do you?

(And fyi: Freymoto is a clever smash-up of the happy couple's last names. Nifty idea, no?)
