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? ;)

Was One Of The 10 Things "Cake Wrecks"?

Well sure, but in the bakery's defense, we don't know what was on Madeline's list.

I mean, maybe it looked like this:

Things Sunshine Likes:

1) Sadness
2) Plastic
3) Clashing Colors
4) Writing With Her Feet
5) Staring Into The Abyss
6) Disproportionate Sizes
7) Rough Plaster Walls
8) Ransom Notes
9) Being Forgotten Until The Last Possible Second
10) Balloons

See, if THAT was the list then you've gotta admit: BANG ON.

 

Thanks to Madeline & Sunshine, who I hope finally gets a giggle out of her sweet sixteen tragedy.

The Anti-Valentine

Not feeling the love today? Then here, try these Valentines on for sighs.

'Cuz nothing says romance like necrotic tissue!

 

Another sure-fire mood-killer? Faded pictures of screaming children on motorcycles:

He's yelling, "EWW WHAT ARE YOU GUYS DOING??"

 

Maybe you don't want to kill the mood so much as make it really, really confusing:

"Weight 4 me?" "Weight 4 me?" How does that even make sense? I mean, look, I love puns. "Bee Mine" with a honey bee? I'm on board. "I love EWE" with a lil sheep? Adorbz. But what the heck is "Weight 4 me" with a heart lifting hearts? Is this just so meta my brain can't handle it? Who even says "wait for me" on Valentine's Day, much less says it so often they need a visual play on words? How is this a thing? Who thought this was a good idea? AAAAUGGH!

[patting hair back into place]

Ahem.

 

And finally, when you just plain want to be a jerk:

 

There's this:

See, it's funny, because nobody loves them! The person who ordered this cake, I mean.
You know, the one covered in pink icing. (We hope.)

 

Thanks to Jenn W., Gabrielle N., Candi, & Jamie G. for giving us a good idea what NOT to do.
