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? ;)

6 Cakes That Fail Hilariously At Looking Like The Things They're Supposed To Look Like, Vol 101

Let's hope these bakers are never on your Pictionary team.

 

A Barbie Princess Tiara:

All I see is a giant cat's paw. Does Barbie have a cat? Is this somehow related? Am I over-thinking this? Where are you all going?

 

A Bucket of Popcorn:

The "Movie Night" really sells it.

 

A Wine Glass:

If only we could all age like wine older, am I right?

 

A Mustache:

Looks like "Dad" has a hairy situation on his hands.

Kinda love the belligerent octopus cupcakes, though. They're all, "Put 'em up, put 'em uuup!"

 

A Fighter Jet:

I swear I'm not making this up.

 

And finally, a pair of lips:

NOT THOSE LIPS YOU SICKO.

Yeesh. You show a person a penis cake or fifty, and suddenly their mind is, like, ALWAYS in the gutter.

It's The "I Of The Tiger"

 

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.
