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? ;)

Friday Favs, 6/27/14

Some of my favorite new submissions this week:

 

When CW reader Jamie ordered a birthday cake for her husband Jim Bob, she encountered one of the funniest dilemmas I've seen yet - and that is really saying something.

The problem?

Her baker had never heard of the letter J:

And apparently thinks Birt and Hday are two separate words.

(Give it a minute.)

(Theeeere it is.)

 

Um....

Any guesses?
Anyone? Anyone?
Bueller?

 

Two of the most misspelled words I see on cakes are "congratulations" and "confirmation." So when someone is foolish enough to order a "Congratulations on your confirmation" cake, HILARITY WILL ENSUE:

Thank goodness the baker made up for it with all those great decorations.

 

Wrecky minion Tabatha was having a bad day, so she decided to swing by the discount rack at the bakery for a little pick-me-up. Then she asked the baker to write "Eye of the Tiger" on it, since we all know that's the best song for a bad day training montage. (I'm picturing slo-mo clips of rampant toe-stubbing, pink slip shredding, and bad haircut reaction shots.)

Anyway, as it turned out, Tabatha got an even bigger pick-me-up than she bargained for:

Greetings, from We of the Turkeys!

 

And finally, when it comes to baseball bats, this baker is ALL THUMB:

NAILED IT.

 

Thanks to Jamie, Ashley R., Sandi M., Tabitha G., & Amanda F. for knowing something was wrong with that last wreck, but not quite putting her finger on it.

9 Bakers Who Have Never Seen A Guitar In Their Entire Lives

For those about to wreck: we "salute" you.

 

Mmmm. Beany.

 

"Back in MY day, sonny-boy, guitars were made of cigar boxes and cat intestines, and gosh darn it, WE LIKED IT."

 

I'm seeing a chainsaw shaped like a corn on the cob.
Just me, or should we all quit drinking now?

 

"Darling, this guitar is like my love for you: NO STRINGS ATTACHED."

"D'awwww!
But seriously why are there no strings."

 

Maybe if we add a little miniature plastic guitar ON the cake as a guide...

NOPE.

 

In fact, when presented with guitar cupcake toppers, one baker panicked:

"AAAUGGH! Which way is up? WHICH WAY IS UP?!"

 

Taxidermied Big Bird as an Upright Bass:

Actually, I kind of like this one.

 

I bet you never wanted to equate a guitar with a flabby guy's pectoral muscles, did you.

WELL TOUGH:

 

And finally, I believe this kid from One Direction has cause to fret:

Get it? "CAUSE TO FRET"?! BAHAHAHAAA!

Because seriously that looks like a dong.

 

Thanks to Stephanie, Keli C., Shelley S., Cherisse B., Andrew W., Kathryn C., Rocke, Katie F., & Jared G. for knowing better than to pick on a guitar with blue balls.
