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? ;)

Err Force

Did you know that September 18th is the United States Air Force's birthday? For real! And to celebrate the good ole' US Air Force (at 63 years young), I've decided to showcase the following cake in all of its fantastical wrecky goodness.

 


What is the most awesomely wrecky part of this cake, you ask? Lemme a'splain. No... there is too much. Lemme sum up.

 

Well, there's the migraine-inducing spelling of "Fonteyimbleau High's Miletxery Ball." For starters.

 

Say that five times fast... (or one time slow).

 

Then there's the "emblems turned balloons," with each one being held by not one, not two, but THREE balloon strings.

Up, up, and away!

 

And we can't overlook the glittery sand-scape of frosting, hypnotizing you into overlooking the remarkable penmanship.

 

It's like a little zen garden of sugar.

 

 


It's really all SO awesome. But the most awesomely awesome part of all has got to be this:

The fact that probably everyone at the ball was wearing an official Air Force hat makes this my favourite part of all. Awesome.

Thank you to Josh A. and all the ROTC cadets at Fonteyimbleau High for having a good altitude about this cake. We were kinda wingin' it when we wrote this post, so I hope we passed with flying colours!
