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? ;)

For example, some people might think these "pumpkins" represent huge...tracts of land:

 

Others might think it's a little chilly in here.

 I'd say the bat was a nice touch, but I think the ghost might disagree.

 

And when it comes to pumpkin cookies, this bakery offers up some stiff competition:

 

I'm surprised that they'd erect such a dinky display.

 

And while that might seem like a hard act to follow, it turns out there's more than one bakery trying to get ahead:

 

Psst. Bakers. Here's a tip.

Also, I think your problem stems from a cockeyed decorator with a testy disposition getting a good-natured ribbing from the bakery staff.

 

Ben, Kristen Z., Bevin C., Petra R., Zack J., and Sara W., these cakes salute you.

Sorry about that.

Ow.

Presenting the world's most painful landing:

Or perhaps the world's most unfortunately shaped, colored, and placed mat logo.

Either way, I'm sure it made a real splash on the audience.

 

Beth C., would you care to join me in a casual crossing-of-the-legs?
