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? ;)

Something Punny About Literals

Just when you think the age of hilarious literal cakes is over, that bakers have all caught wind of this blog and therefore wised up to writing the order instructions ON the cake... you get a glorious triple-header in one week.

Life... IS GOOD.

I like how the baker put the crown over the "Inside the Heart" part.

It's like, somehow, on some level, she knew.

 

Then there's the classic "covering all the bases" approach:

Baker: "I DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU WAAAANT."

 

I kind of desperately want this last one to be intentional on the baker's part, because I can actually respect the sort of passive-aggressive snark it would take to do this on purpose:

See, when Susan ordered, she made a point of asking for decent handwriting.
Guess how she phrased it.

 

Thanks Teri B., Kristie, and Susan L. for renewing my faith in wreckerators. The age of Under Neat Thats lives on! Extra sprinkles for everybody!

THE GREAT HUMAN MYSTERY... plus cake!

There is no greater human mystery than our ability to communicate.
To take a picture or concept and implant it perfectly into the mind of another - what wonder!

 

What marvel!

 

Nay, what miracle, even!

 

So the next time you're ordering a cake, minions, just think:

Hey, at least they spelled it right.

Except they didn't.

(But, c'mon, so close.)

That's not what you should think, though.

What you should think is how amazing it is that we can come together as a species through our words and language. That we have this means of showing others how we're feeling, what we're thinking!

And just think: without language...

...this wouldn't be nearly as funny.

 

Thanks to Kim C., Pia F., Taryn, Edie S., & Tony B. for striking out.
