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? ;)

More Confessions of a Master Baker

Welcome to another installment of...

Confessions of a Master Baker!

"Ordinary bakers. Extraordinary feats of bad judgment."

 

[baker's silhouette speaking in disguised voice]

"So then," [blowing nose] "Then I told my husband to just bring me more plastic flowers, but we were OUT OF PLASTIC FLOWERS." 

"I still have nightmares about brown sugar and chocolate shavings."


[whispering] Confessions...

 

"They said they wanted 'Starry Night.' Everyone knows Starry Night, right? So I drew it from memory.

"Turns out I don't know Starry Night."

 

[whispering] Telling Secrets...

 

"What can I say? I panicked. I grabbed the can of silver spray..."

"... and told the bride it was Art Deco!"

 

[whispering] Declarations...

 

"I thought a fondant ribbon down the side would distract from the lopsidedness.

"... Which it did. So I guess, you know, that worked."

 

[whispering] Professions, but not in a job-like way...

 

"How hard is it to throw a few rose petals on a cake?"

"Easier than dodging a whole wedding cake, that's for sure."

You Won't BELIEVE How Desperate These Click Bait Headlines Are

No matter how I rail against our Facebook overlords, the truth is we really depend on the traffic we get from my daily updates over there - even with FB only showing my posts to about 6% of you. :/

So to make the most of it, John keeps pushing me to make my Facebook posts more "enticing."

Success!

(Anna M. made her own princess castle homage. Day = MADE.)
(Though I must admit, Anna, those candles are making even ME uncomfortable.)

I only have so many headstrong castles cakes I can post, though, so I did some research on what kinds of headlines get the most attention. Here, you guys tell me if I'm doing this right:

Thanks to Anna M., Jodie G., David D., Harri, Tim R., Ashley, Laura R., & Josh R. for the excuse to post yet another of those bizarre scarf cakes.
