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? ;)

Let's Play Telephone!

Ladies and gentlemen, the stories you're about to see are true. The phone calls, however, are just how I imagined they went.

 

"Yes, I'd like it to say 'Happy 6th Birthday Robert.' Oh, and could you put Spider-Man on the cake, too? That's his favorite character."

You're welcome, lady!

 

"Just have it say 'Happy Birthday Keith & Arianna,' please."

[writing down order] "Nooo problem, sir. And what kind of decorations would you like?"

"Oh, whatever. I trust you guys."

Foolish man.

 

"Could you write, 'Happy birthday cake, Chloe'?"

[confused look]

"Yes, seriously. She's three years old."

"Ohhh kay. You really want me to write that?"

"Yeah. See, she never says just 'happy birthday,' she always says 'happy birthday cake.'"

"Oh, I get it! Ok, sure, no problem."

*facepalm*

 

"And what message would you like on your cookie cake?"

"Oh, this isn't for any special occasion. Although if you could put sprinkles on it, that'd be cool."

Cool.

 

"Have it say, 'Happy birthday, Mike.'"

Is there an echo in here?

 

"Just put 'Happy birthday, Stephanie.' Thanks!"

Kinda makes you want to yell, "I'm an idiot!!" doesn't it?

 

Thanks to Joanna B., Sheri, Jodee W., Genevieve, Melissa M., Stephanie R. for literally being my most recent wreckporters.

A V-Day Snippet

So tell me, Wreckies: was yesterday an exercise in eye-rolling and teeth-gritting and ignoring all those saps on Facebook posting pictures of their chocolates and roses and oh-so-romantic dinners?

Don't worry, you're not alone.

In fact, in the spirit of sweet schadenfreude, here's proof that your day was at least better than this guy's:

Ouch.

No matter how you slice it, that's one cutting take on "V-day."

It's also the only cake that comes with a side of frozen peas.

:D

[Note: If you're not having a hearty chortle right now, you've either a) never known anyone who had a vasectomy, or b) had a vasectomy.]

[Note Note: John's not laughing.]

 

Thanks for the shear genius, Kim D.
