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? ;)

Why You Don't Raid Other People's Refrigerators

[opening fridge] "Hey Sarah, you got any bee...AAAAUUGGHHH!!!!"

 

For those of you who would otherwise insist on knowing the whys and wherefores of this photo, here's what submitter Sarah M. had to say for herself (yes, she's the baker):

Subject: I swear I do get paid for making cakes

"The attached however was for a friend's surprise birthday party at a Chinese restaurant and since the birthday girl was born in the year of the rat, well I thought a giant rat cake would be appropriate."

Good thinking. Rats as a whole get far too little face time in the world of cakes.

"However my air conditioning failed halfway through the process and the butter cream icing began to destabilize and well all I could save was the head with the light up eyes."

Yep, see that tin foil "tail"? It's electric!

"The recipient of the cake claimed to my face it was the best d**n thing she had ever received.

- Sarah (I have more talent than this) M."

Sarah, I think I speak for everyone here when I say: you really need to buy better beer. Is that Miller Lite I spy in the door? Tsk, tsk. Oh, and also: we should all be so lucky to have friends make us electrified rodent heads for our birthday celebrations. Right, guys?

And Now A Word From Princess Godzilla

HOW TO BE A PRINCESS
Cake Wrecks style

 

1) First things first: you'll need a wardrobe fit for royalty.

Because even a strait jacket can be princessy when paired with the right skirt/circus tent.

 

2) Have your hair and makeup done professionally every day.

Don't be like Elsa that one time:

(Girl needs to let her liquid eyeliner GO, am I right?)

 

3) Find an animal side kick

Friendly forest creatures are SO overdone, though. I recommend something a little more original:

...like a boa constrictor.

 

4) Eyebrows UP! It helps instill a sense of wonder.

Not to mention a sense of surprise and/or fear.

Which is why:

5) You can never, EVER, stop smiling:

Cindy's foot is currently being gnawed on by angry peasant mice, but do you see her complaining?
NUH-UH.

 

But really, my dear minions, there is only one requirement to be a princess:

Be true to yourself, and feel pretty doing it.

Princess Godzilla demands it.

 

Thanks to Anony M., KM, Noelle T., Kathy C., Sydney C., & Andrea L. for making her daughter the best princess cake OF ALL TIME. Somebody give Princess Godzilla her own movie, product line, and action figures, STAT!
