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? ;)

Literally? LITERALLY.

Gina's birthday is the 4th of July, so last week her hubby John ordered a patriotic cake for the occasion. The bakery had several jars of plastic decorations sitting around, so John pointed at one and asked the bakers to put "some of those stars in the jar" on the cake.

Which... they kind of did?

Oy, what a crock.

 

Meanwhile, in the more straightforward camp:

NAILED IT.

 

Neither of which can compare to that heartfelt sentiment that thrills each of us to our very core:

I'm sure that's code for, "You're the Apple of my eye," Carrie.

Getting EXACTLY What You Ask For

Ever wonder how a wreck gets ordered?

 

"I'd like a dragon cake, and could you have it breathing flame onto the cake board?"

 

"...And her name is Jayce. Like Joyce, but with an 'a,' not an 'o.'"

 (For the longest time I couldn't figure out what "a-noPanO" meant. Finally I gave up and looked up the original e-mail.)

 

"Oh, you're writing this down? Great. Just write, 'Good luck, Kim.' And in big letters, could you add 'Have fun!' on the form, too? Thanks!"

 

"I'd like it to say, 'Thank you, Lord.' Just put 'Thank you' on one side of the cross, and 'Lord' on the other."

(I don't think the wreckerator understands the true gravity of this situation.)

 

"I'd like it to have 'Happy Birthday, Dad,' and under that a king of hearts playing card."

It turns out that in this bakery, a picture is only worth five words.

 

Thanks to Abigail, Jim K., Nikolaos J., Misty K., & Kelly C., who was secretly hoping for an "Under Neat That" on the last cake. Weren't you, Kelly? It's ok, you can admit it; I was, too.
