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? ;)

The Times of Wreckerators' Lives

There are moments we cherish, and then there are moments like these:

 

When the customer asks for music notes and you're all, "I'VE GOT THIS."

Yes, music notes. Honest.

 

When your own packaging shows just how badly your "unicorn cake" misses the mark:

I mean, really. It looks more like the cloud.

 

And my favorite:

When someone helpfully suggests you Google "baby girl cake" for decorating ideas:

 

Thanks to Anabell M., Alexandra S., & Charles F., who isn't too worried his baker will see this, I think for obvious reasons.

Fall's Fails

Fall is officially upon us here in Florida, as evidenced by the fact that it's a blustery 78 degrees outside tonight. (Don't worry; I've already broken out the scarves, sweaters, furry boots, and electric blanket, just to be safe.)

The other way you can tell it's Fall, though - besides all the Floridians in snowsuits - is the fall-tastical offerings in our nation's bakeries:

 

It's a...um...leaf. 

I think.

 

Theoretically I KNOW this isn't a Can-Can dancer lifting her skirts, but darned if I can see anything else.

 

Because nothing says, "MMAAAUUUURGGHHH!!!" like a Hay Beast with peek-a-boo breasticles.

 (HAY-O!)

 

 Well, except maybe the Bell-Bottomed Scare Bear of Perpetual Perplexity:

 

He's Huh? Huh? Huh? Huh? Stayin' Alive.

 

Oooh, and if your birthday happens to fall during Fall, then you also have these fun options:

 

Thanks to this cake and John's alarmingly comprehensive knowledge of slang words, I now know that "nut" is also a verb.

I don't recommend looking it up.

 

Here's one for our pyromaniac fans:

My deer, you are on FIRE tonight!

Also, I think I'd have that lump checked out. Just sayin'.

 

And finally, this bakery helpfully reminds us that Fall is "Harevet Time"

  So get those bunnies in for their yearly check-ups ASAP, hear?

 

Thanks to Kiki, Nancy M., Addie H., Sarah T., Bevin, Tanya S., & Shelley for the nice trips.
