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? ;)

Weekly Wreck Up 2/20/14

Some of my favorites that came in this week:

 

I've had some time to think about it, guys, and I've finally decided:

I'm really NOT ready for some football, thanks.

 

I'll also pass on these:

Something something TOOT SWEET. Haha!

(Let's see, so that's 4 fartlets to a toot, two toots to a squelch, and three squelches to a change of undies, am I right?)

 

One of the best patch jobs I've seen in ages:

LIKE A NINJA. 

 

Ah, look! The Great Poo-Nugget Migration!

Really moving, isn't it?

 

We've had a bunch of late Valentine cakes come in, and I have to say, you wreckerators had a red-letter year! In fact, you could say...

Torn between disappointment and relief there's no nekkid Miley on there.

 

This and "Huge Me," man; they just never get old.

 

"Drat, there's only room for one more letter, and I need to spell "YOU!"

"Guess I'll go with the Y, then."

Surprise! IT A WRECK!

Brenna P. writes,

"Since it was my husband’s birthday last week, I thought it would be a fun idea to get a birthday cake that would also reveal the gender of our baby due this summer."

 

[nodding vigorously] Excellent, excellent. WHAT COULD GO WRONG WITH THIS PLAN.

Ok, Brenna, please.

DO GO ON.

"I asked that the bakery put blue frosting in the middle of the cake, with the intention of cutting it open to reveal that it’s a boy."

Good thinking. Solid plan. I like it.

 

And... ?

TA-DAAAA!!

Note the lovely schmear of blue frosting right in the "middle" of the cake, just like Brenna asked.

(The whole "It a ..." misspelling was just the metaphorical cherry on top.)

 

Ah, but I know what you're thinking: what color icing was on the inside?

Silly wreckie; there WAS no icing on the inside, haha!

(C'mon, now, how long have you been reading this blog? I mean, REALLY.)
