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? ;)

Drunken DeBOTCHery

The great thing about wedding cakes these days is how they incorporate the couples' personalities. You know, the things they love and value, the things they enjoy doing together...

IN CASE OF BEER EMERGENCY, TOPPLE CAKE

 

"'Til sobriety do us part."

 

And who could forget this classic groom's cake?

Classy with a capital K.

 

And hey, not only is Bud Light good for hosing off patios and cleaning spark plugs, it's also grrrrr-REAT for smashing into the cakes of people you don't like much:

Take THAT, Wally.

Pro Tip: Writing "IGLOO" on the side only tells us just how far you missed the mark, bakers. Next time, try "last-minute replacement." You'll look like a STAR.

 

Parents, if you name your kid "Beer," I'm pretty sure no amount of Welch's sparkling grape juice is going to reverse the damage:

Although I'd be lying if I said I didn't want to shake the hand of the person who put this display together.

 

Of course, I imagine any parent of a child named Beer would find a cake like this sort of inevitable:

Still, not sure I'd believe 'em, Dad:

 

Big sloppy thank you kisses to Jennifer J., Laurie, Serena M., Jen, Erin M., Lauren K., & Kati B. And hey. Hey. HEY. Guys. I like, TOTALLY love youallsomuch. Seriously. Now someone gimmie a bucket.

Old Glory Daze

Yesterday we here in America remembered our fallen heroes.

Today, we remember...the American Flag.

 

O-oh, say can you SEEEE? BYYY the bakery light?
How so soundly they failed... to give our flag any meaning:

Those brown stripes and blob "stars" ARE a scurr-i-lous sight!

And the RED parts they botched... are so def'nitely leaning:

And what's that O-VER THEEEERE?!

[cymbal crash!!]

 

Did the BAKER NOT CARE?

[slide whistle!]

 

A goof, what a sight - it's more THAN I can bear.

(Yes. Really.)

 

No WAY does thi-is new-fangled airbru-ush yet blaa-aaaave!

[You know, "to blave?" It means "to bluff."]

[Now, someone fetch me an MLT!]

[Ahem]

 

For the BAND of the THREEEEEE (red stripes)...

And the hoooome...of theeeee....WAAAAAAAVE!

(Before you ask: all of today's wrecks were sold right here in the good ol' US of A, on or around American holidays. I also have LOTS more where these came from. [proffering tissue] Tissue, teachers?)

 

Thanks to ToniAnn B., Trace L., Stephanie P., Sarah C., Kelly S., Sharon E., Lori A., Lin Q., & Daniel K. for their flagging enthusiasm.
