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? ;)

Wrecking By the Book

When ordering a cake at your local bakery, you may be given a big picture book to choose from. This could cause you some concern: will your cake look as nice as the one in the photo?

Well, never fear, cake consumer! I'm here to help. Now, will your cake look exactly like the one in the book? YES. Absolutely.

Er, with a few caveats, of course.


Caveat #1: Perspective is all relative.
(scroll down)


And to think: you were worried!



Caveat #2: Designs are open to interpretation.

I could be wrong, but I think this translates roughly to, "I hate my job, and you by association."



Caveat #3: The toy is all that matters.

Just look at that icing sky. Perfection!




Caveat #4: No, seriously. THE TOY IS ALL THAT MATTERS.


[sound of head hitting desk repeatedly]

Caveat # 5: On Wild Card Wednesdays, anything goes.


Really? Seriously? This can't be real...[flipping through proof file] Here it is. Hmm. Ahuh. Ahuh. Yeah. Really? No way. Seriously? They told her the Tinkerbell figurine didn't come with the cake?!? Haven't they seen caveats 3 and 4? I mean, C'MON!

Ahem.

Paige, I am so sorry for you.

Thanks to Wreckporters Aimee S., A.E., Cecily C., Kelli R., and, of course, Paige T.

Seussical Sweets

Do you like cake,
And do you like Dr. Seuss?
Can you not bake,
But only gawk like a goose?

Then, I have a surprise!
(One aimed to please)

Just open your eyes,

And take a
gander at these!

Well, we're all out of time,
And that's probably best for you,
Since my ability to rhyme,
Is frankly less than impressive.
