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? ;)

You Might Be A Wreckerator If...

Bakers, do you worry that you, too, might be a wreckerator?

Well, have no fear, pastry pros! There are plenty of warning signs to look for:


You Might Be A Wreckerator If....

- consider "happy" a four-letter word.


- ...your cakes have more plastic on them than frosting.


- ...when you say, "I could just eat you up!" to a baby, you really mean it.

"It's...looking at me."
"Ugly little spud, isn't it?"
"I think it can hear you, Ray."


- ...cupcake cakes are your "specialty."


- ...your family crest says, "Spell check is for loosers."



 - not only know what this is, you think it's well done:


-'re frequently asked what time the earthquake hit.


- pride yourself on following customer requests to the letter:


And finally, you might be a wreckerator if... have to ban photography in your bakery to stop your cakes from showing up on Cake Wrecks.


Thanks to Kimber, Amy S., Lori M., Carrie M., Whitney, Mary Rose, Liz, Stephanie B., Lisa R., & JR, who think it'd make more sense to just hire better bakers, but that's why they're not "good" management material.

9 Times Strategic Thinking Really Paid Off

As you know, September is International Strategic Thinking Month, so while we hang our Strategic Stockings and hum the Strategery anthem, let's take a quick break for cake... strategically.


1: Is your handwriting too big?


2: Too small?


C: Did you start too high?


D: Or too drunk?


5: Do you need to break up a word with a dash?


F: Did you put the emPHAsis on the right syLAble?


VII: Do you know how balloons work?


XVII: Are you feeling dizzy?


And if all else fails, remember: with a little strategic thinking you can print your cake design, thereby eliminating the chance of any... uh... oh.
