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? ;)

Valentines Review

Remember last week when I told you guys to make Valentines Day extra confusing?

Well, looks like some bakers out there took my advice...TO HEART.

And that's no bull.

(OX OX!)

 

What day is it, again?

Oh, right.
Um.
So HOW old is this cake?

 

I'm detecting a pattern here:

Maybe bacon?

 

And the award for "Weirdest Made-Up Punctuation" goes to...

The symbol formerly known as ?!?.

("I.... am confused. >>)

 

Of course, as bizarre as these Valentines cakes are, it could always be worse:

Must be an ice cream cake... CUZ THAT'S COLD.

The Bananas Are Totally Helping: Women Weirdly Wearing Cake

Since I started this blog I've seen my share of cakes crammed onto real live ladies. Here's a croquembouche dress:

(Ballsy.)

 

Here's a cupcake skirt:

(I'd eat that.)

 

And here's an edible wedding dress guaranteed to make you never want an edible wedding dress:

But all of that pales in comparison to whatever the heck is happening in this photo:

Now, I know there's a lot of crazy to take in up there, but keep your eyes on the bananas.

See them?

Good.

Now you can scroll down:

Ta-daaaa!

Ok, so, a few things:

1) There are now bananas artfully draped on the womens' shoulders. I bet you never thought someone could artfully drape a banana. Or that someone would consider a conjoined torso cake with real live ladies sticking out of either end an appetizing idea. BUT THERE THEY BOTH ARE.

2) The candles. Why? Is this a birthday party?

3) WAIT. Is it Beetlejuice's birthday? THAT WOULD EXPLAIN... well, at least the stripey parts.

4) Now I want shrimp cocktail.

5) You Beetlejuice fans got that one. You're welcome.

 

Thanks to Amy, Evelyn D., Jessica S., & Jemma S. for sending in those pics with absolutely no explanation. I mean, it's just more fun to imagine all the many, MANY reasons why this is a thing that happened.

[thinking]

I'll, uh, come up with one eventually, I'm sure.
