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 Jeers Of A Clown

Now if there's a smile on my face,

 

It's only there trying to fool the public!

 

But when it comes down to scaring you

 

Now, missy, that's quite a different subject

 

So don't let my glad expression

Give you the wrong impression

 

Really I'm bad!

Oh, badder than bad!

 

You've gone and you've made me so mad!

Once you're alone I'm gonna be glad!
'Cuz there's some bad things known to man

But ain't too much badder than...

The jeers of a clown

When there's no one around!

"And I bet those jeans are relaxed fit, too."

 

Thanks to Tylar K., Amy H., Stephen M., Meggan B., Drew M., Karyn B., Jennifer, Kasandra G., & Emma P. for finding that last one on the cover of a vintage Wilton decorating book. o.0

All Dolled Up & Nowhere To Run

Believe it or not, doll cakes can be tricky! Observe:

Stick the doll in too low, and she looks like she's being swallowed:

 

Too high, and she's being abducted by aliens:

 

Not to mention there's all that pesky "understanding how a doll cake works" thing:

"Wait... the cake is supposed to be her skirt? OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!"

 

Happily bakers are putting their own spin on the classic doll cake, though, and now there are so many more styles to choose from! Like:

The "Just Woke Up From A Weekend In Vegas":

Best served with warm Tequila and a cold shower.

 

The "Smart Women Stand In Blue Meringue Pies":

 

The "Fish Story":

She's little in the middle but she's got much... tail?

 

The "Frozen Princess... Defrosted":

 

Oh, and that reminds me:

YOU'RE NOT FOOLING ANYONE, RITA.

 

And finally, my very favorite:

The "Creepy Doll Bridal Party":

This one has a fun feature: when the time comes to cut the cake, they all turn their little heads in your direction and just. STARE.

 

Thanks to Tina L. Sandra, Anne S., Kylie M., Kimberly C., Lia A., Katy M., Meghan W., & Kelly K. for getting all dolled up on us.

(If you're wondering why that last one's my favorite - and you have a high tolerance for creepy dolls - you might like this. :D)
