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? ;)

Some of my favorite new submissions this week.

 

Guys, if you ever want a 3D sculpted cake like this:

 

...and your baker claims she can make a cupcake cake (patooie!) look just like it, DO NOT BELIEVE HER.

On the plus side, I hear hippo skin rugs are all the rage now in child therapy sessions.

They asked for a book cake of The Great Gatsby:

NAILED IT.

You know, when *I* was a kid they didn't have all these new-fangled flavored fillings:

"Ok, ma'am, your cake has room for three lines of text."

"Great! I'd like 'Mazel Tov' on the first line, and 'Sara Rose' on the second."

"And for the third line?"

"Oh, just leave that blank."

Apparently Jennifer K's husband never gets her anything for their anniversary, so for the big 10 she got him a cake. That said this:

I really shouldn't be finding this so funny, should I?

 ***

 

"Hey, guys, is 'give up' all one word?

Is there a dash?

How do you spell it, again?

Is this right?

How about now?

OH FORGET IT."

Mmmm, sweet irony.

This Is Gonna Be GOOD: Happy Cake "Decorating" Day!

It's National Cake Decorating Day, bakers, so let's go over those basics again!

 

Remember, it all starts with a good foundation:

 

...and a smooth, even application of icing.

 

When it comes time to decorate, no need to get fancy!
Just stick with something simple, like a butterfly.

 

Or, uh, maybe something easier, like flowers.

>.<

 

Or... I dunno... balloons? Yeah. You can't screw up balloons.

Never mind.

 

And lastly, let's talk penmanship.

Just skip that for now. And always.

 

Tell you what, bakers, just cover the whole thing with an edible image, ok? PROBLEM SOLVED.

-.-

Step 1: Forcefully connect head to desk Step
2: Repeat
