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 Failure To Communicate, Vol. 243

I like how the only thing legible is the one word NOT supposed to be there:

 

Erin K. wanted her daughter's cake to be oriented vertically, or portrait-style, but the baker wasn't getting it.

"You know, the long way?"

*headdesk*

 

When you want a big 75, NOT a "big 75."

Can I quote you on that?

 

In fact, a lot of butchered instructions end up as new nick names:

Give up?

They wanted "thank you" written in pink.

 

And this one didn't want any gel icing:

 

Here's a blast from the past: a Historical Society hosted a "President's Tea."

Thank goodness they weren't screening old 80s TV shows there, too!

Can you imagine if it'd been the "President's Tea & A-Team Party?"

 

Now imagine, if you will, the ordering process that resulted in this cake:

I'm picturing a Monty Python sketch, myself.

"No, I want you to STAY HERE, and write the names underneath!"

"So I'm to write these names twice and capitalize 'Underneath.' Got it."

"No, no, it's quite simple. Write 'Happy Birthday' once, and the names underneath."

"If, if, uh... If, if, uh... Oh! Can I write the names three times... IF I use extra sprinkles?"

"AAAAAAUUGH!"

Some of my favorite new submissions this week.

 

Guys, if you ever want a 3D sculpted cake like this:

 

...and your baker claims she can make a cupcake cake (patooie!) look just like it, DO NOT BELIEVE HER.

On the plus side, I hear hippo skin rugs are all the rage now in child therapy sessions.

They asked for a book cake of The Great Gatsby:

NAILED IT.

 ***

 

You know, when *I* was a kid they didn't have all these new-fangled flavored fillings:

 

***

 

"Ok, ma'am, your cake has room for three lines of text."

"Great! I'd like 'Mazel Tov' on the first line, and 'Sara Rose' on the second."

"And for the third line?"

"Oh, just leave that blank."

***

 

Apparently Jennifer K's husband never gets her anything for their anniversary, so for the big 10 she got him a cake. That said this:

I really shouldn't be finding this so funny, should I?

 ***

 

"Hey, guys, is 'give up' all one word?

Is there a dash?

How do you spell it, again?

Is this right?

How about now?

OH FORGET IT."

Mmmm, sweet irony.

 

Thanks to Disireah, Tonianne, Allie P., Deena M., & Anony M. for reminding us to never give up, NEVER SURRENDER.
