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? ;)

Two Thumbs Up!

Ah, it warms the very cockles of my heart to see Hollywood embracing the Wreckage.

For example, check out what showed up on this week's episode of Glee:

As I'm sure you've guessed, this was for the shop teacher who'd just returned to work after accidentally cutting off his thumbs. Naturally they served him a whole hand, too, which he then had to eat without the benefit of a fork:

It's enough to make me think we need a new spin-off: Awkward Cake Wreck Photos. Eh? Guys?

"Ok," you're thinking, "but that's just a TV show. No one would actually order..."

"Uh..."

"Ack!"

Yeeeah. You were saying?

Oh, and we can't forget this gem:

(Yes, it's a repeat; I just couldn't help myself.)

MV, Angela A., & Anony M., thanks for giving me a hand with this post; I think we nailed it.

Not-So-Passive Aggressive Cakes

You know that feeling you get sometimes, where you think everyone hates you and is secretly plotting your demise? (No? Just me?)

Usually that's called "paranoia." Unless, of course, you're in one of these bakeries:

Then it's called "reading the room."

Betcha never knew someone could give you the finger while wearing a baseball mitt, now, did you?

They're watching. Alllllways waaaatching.

Of course, some decorators can be pretty subtle:

"Why did he have to roam alone? WHY?!?"

While others just let it all hang out:

"Grrrrr..."

At least some places still offer truth in advertising, though:


The lawyers insisted.

Magic Girl, Julie D., Alanna F., Terra B., Rhoni L., & Bonbon, these "cakes" make me think we should be nicer to decorators. They could snap at any moment.
