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? ;)

A Yelp For Help

Most chain bakeries have numbered order books, so you can just write down the code for the design you want.

For example, at this place, if you want a picture of a trophy you write down "SB1."

NAILED IT.

 

Beth S. didn't want any mix-ups, though, so to be EXTRA careful she wrote down the name of the design she wanted, not the number:

 

...which is how Beth ended up with this:

Doggone it.

 

Ok, you're thinking, but surely - SURELY - if you draw an actual diagram of the cake yourself, clearly labeled, this won't happen. Right?

Linsay K. agreed, so she carefully mapped out directions for drawing the Quebec flag on her friend's birthday cake:

She picked the color blue, then used a piece of paper to show the bakers just where to draw the four fleur-de-lis.

 

I think you'll agree, minions, that all of Linsay's hard work really paid off:

Eh?

 

Thanks to Veronica L. Beth S., & Linsay K. for giving me a new fleur-de-lis on life.

The Truth Hurts. Have Some Cake.

Because this is the kind of thing I do to amuse myself.

 

 

 

 

 

 

And this last one doesn't really fit, but it's the ultimate birthday Truth Bomb:

 

Thanks to Candice J., Audra M., Katie W., Katherine K., Deborah F., the L family, & Kimberly B. for reminding us the truth hurts sometimes, but everything's better with cake.
