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? ;)

A Courageous Display

Bakers, your display cakes can really make or break your business.

So maybe stop putting your old shoes on them?

 

See, you want to fill your windows with friendly faces:

 

And endearing characters:

 

Not to mention keep it all looking delicious!

 

Make sure you have a variety of occasion cakes out, to show your artistic range:

 

And don't be afraid to show off a little technical prowess!

 

Maybe show a little support for a worthy cause:

No matter how misspelled or misplaced.

 

And hey, when all else fails, try throwing a blouse over it:

PERF.

 

Thanks to Andrea A., Nat, Tiffany W., Camilla C., Colleen B., Anne B., Bonnie B., & Lisa for keeping that last one under wraps.

Truth In Advertising

Bakers, in today's lagging economy the race to earn customers' hard-earned dollars is on. So how can you stay ahead of your competition? With tasteful, quality display-cakes, that's how.

 

Yep, you want displays that draw people in. Displays that show off your skills. Displays that say, "Hey, we're a modern, 'with-it' bakery that knows just how to relate to today's generation."

"You see, kids, there once was a time when phones had cords on them."

 

You also want cakes that show you take your job seriously:

 

And that your figure modeling is second-to-none:

"GREETINGS, HUMANS. WE ARE TWO UNIQUE FEMALES WHO ENJOY SITTING IN CASUAL MANNERS. TAKE US HOME OR WE WILL STUN YOU WITH OUR LASER EYES. JUST KIDDING.
HA. HA. HA."

 

But also some that show you aren't lacking in the crazy department:

"Proud to be the only bakery that offers large chocolate grenades in our 'Peeps VS Bobble-Heads Soccer Match in the Desert of Doom' design - now with random Rugrats!"

 

Jasmine D., Erin F., Lisa M., Sarah N., & Maren J., can you spot the grenade?
