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? ;)

In Which We Try To Come Up With New Ways To Say "Nailed It"

The baker swore she could recreate this Mad Hatter cake:

 

And yet...

To quote Aimee, "Oh, and the cake was burnt."
Well, somebody got burned, am I right?! HEYO! High five!

Anyone?

Don't leave me hanging...

Fine.

 

Amber wanted this Mickey Mouse cake for a second birthday party:

Trouble is, she asked the baker to make it out of buttercream instead of fondant, which we all know would require a magic wardrobe, 3 fairies, and a photo of the Loch Ness Monster doing the Macarena.

 

Hey, wouldn't it be hilarious if I showed you guys a really amazing cake right now?

Yeah, that would've been funny.

And now, for the first time ever, Cake Wrecks proudly presents:
An In-Depth Analysis of the Wreck®

An In-Depth Analysis of the Wreck®

 

To keep things simple, Cheryl ordered the stock Hello Kitty design off the bakery's website, which looks like this:

 

You know how they say, "a picture is worth a thousand words?"

Well, in this case, a picture of a picture of a cake on a cake is worth about thirty bucks.

GOOD TO KNOW.

 

And finally, Angela writes, "This is what I wanted for the groom's cake..."

"...but in the color scheme of his drums, which is a green fade to lighter green with sparkles, like this:"

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA... coughcoughcough... cough...

 

Oh. You were being serious? No, yeah, sure. That's tooootally gonna happen.

:gigglesnort:

Well, look on the bright side, Angela; at least the baker didn't jam glow sticks into it like on your wedding cake. (Last one.) (Ahhh, good times.)

 

Thanks to Aimee R., Amber W., Cheryl S., & Angela for drumming up some new lolz.

Note from john (the hubby of Jen): A couple of years ago, Jen and I decided to take Wednesdays off. We write four new posts every week and a new Sunday Sweets and, to be honest, that's surprisingly hard to do. Add to that Epbot and emails and projects and there just aren't enough hours in the day. So, we decided that we had two options: we could either leave Wednesdays empty or we could put up a really old funny post.

We figured that since many of our readers are new and may not have read a thousand posts back, we would choose our very favorites from four or more years ago and put them up as a Wreck Replay. And that's what we do. Every Wednesday. For about two years now. I know this is dissappointing to some of you but believe it or not, we're just trying to make you smile. If it bothers you, maybe take Wednesday off. Go check out The Blogess or Awkward Family Photos. And when you come back on Thursday, we'll have a brand new post waiting for you. As always, thanks for reading and Wreck On! -john
