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? ;)

Not-So-Basic Instructions

There's a certain creativity to literal LOLs - a kind of "outside the box" thinking that never fails to impress me. The kind that says, "Oh, you want the words written in purple? THEN THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT I WILL WRITE."

"But not necessarily in that color."

Also, it turns out those are not garbage bags in a windstorm.

 

You might think it would help to spell out the name for a birthday cake, but that's not always the case - as "Alison with one L" discovered:

Wait for it... waaaiit for it...

 

And lest you think it's better to write it down  - and perhaps add a helpful footnote:

 

NOPE.

 

Adding a P.S. is never a good idea, either:

 

The fact is, sometimes wreckerators just have a hard time getting the picture:

Or maybe they just really stink at drawing.

The Letter Of The Flaw

This redditor discovered there's more than one way to interpret "sprinkles on the side."

Ha!

(One of the few times when the wrecked version actually required more effort.)

 

Dae's local bakery offers number-shaped donuts for birthdays, so she ordered "20 number 6 donuts with pink icing and sprinkles."

Oooh. SO CLOSE.

 

Cory S. asked for a cake that was half white, half chocolate, but made the mistake of not specifying WHICH half: 

 Er...

 

I feel ya, Jean-Luc.


And finally, Lindsay A. was very clear when she ordered these two cookies cakes: "Happy Birthday Jessica" on one, and on the other, "Happy Birthday Alan."

(I'll spare you the headache: they both read "Happy Birthday Jessica and the other Alan.")

Annnnd....

 DOUBLE FACEPALM!

 

Thanks to Libby, Dae S., Cory S., & Lindsay A., who I'm sure can't stop staring at the wonky Picard arm, either. Right? Please tell me I'm not the only one.
