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? ;)

Beachy Keen

Ah, the heady, celebratory days of summer:

 

Say this with your teeth gritted, and you'll sound like Sean Connery. 

Ohh, and while you're at it, repeat after me:

 

Ha! Although really it should sound more like, "Schuck it, Trebek."

(Don't get it? This should help.)

 

Where was I?

Oh, right.

 

So, school's out, and it's time for that quintessential summer activity:

Fun and sun at the beach!

 Gee. Way to sell it, bakers.

 

Mmmm. Radioactive wasteland has never looked so...mildewy.

 

Uh, guys? Is this what I think it is?

Black "water," two plastic ships, found on the shelf in August of 2010... 

 OH NO YOU DID NOT, BAKERS.

 (Yep, I really waited two whole years to post this wreck. The first person to cry "too soon!" has to eat it. :D)

 

Well, if an edible oil spill isn't your thing, then how about an edible hurricane?

 DOLPHIN!

(If you get that reference you win two gold stars and a 'nother cow.)

 You know, on second thought, I think I'll just stay inside this summer. Seem safer that way. Y'all have fun out there, y'hear?

 

Thanks to today's wreckporters Hillary I., Audrey P., Kristen S., Jessica N., Hope R., & Thia S. for reminding me why I don't leave the house.

Drunken DeBOTCHery

The great thing about wedding cakes these days is how they incorporate the couples' personalities. You know, the things they love and value, the things they enjoy doing together...

IN CASE OF BEER EMERGENCY, TOPPLE CAKE

 

"'Til sobriety do us part."

 

And who could forget this classic groom's cake?

Classy with a capital K.

 

And hey, not only is Bud Light good for hosing off patios and cleaning spark plugs, it's also grrrrr-REAT for smashing into the cakes of people you don't like much:

Take THAT, Wally.

Pro Tip: Writing "IGLOO" on the side only tells us just how far you missed the mark, bakers. Next time, try "last-minute replacement." You'll look like a STAR.

 

Parents, if you name your kid "Beer," I'm pretty sure no amount of Welch's sparkling grape juice is going to reverse the damage:

Although I'd be lying if I said I didn't want to shake the hand of the person who put this display together.

 

Of course, I imagine any parent of a child named Beer would find a cake like this sort of inevitable:

Still, not sure I'd believe 'em, Dad:

 

Big sloppy thank you kisses to Jennifer J., Laurie, Serena M., Jen, Erin M., Lauren K., & Kati B. And hey. Hey. HEY. Guys. I like, TOTALLY love youallsomuch. Seriously. Now someone gimmie a bucket.
