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? ;)

See? Not Just An American Thing

And now, for a little international flair, here's a Cake Wreck all the way from Norway. We begin with a guy ordering a cake for his coworker, Arnold:

(The original article is written in Norwegian, so I've put this conversation through Google Translate.)
"Can I please order a marzipan cake?"
"That's fine. What is the name on it?"
"Yes it will be Arnold 60 years. Happy Birthday."
"Arne 60..."
"No. Arnold!"
"Arna?"
"No! Arnold like in 'Arnold Schwarzenegger.'"
"Oh... huh. Arnold like in 'Arnold Schwarzenegger?'"
"Yes."
"Are you sure."
"Yes in heaven's name. You shall write it as said!!! Yeah, print it! In a hurry!"

 

I want to believe Google Translate is completely accurate and this is exactly how Norwegians talk.
Because that would be hilarious. (Shhh, let me have this, Europe.)

Okay. Here's the cake in all its Norwegian glory:

 

Thanks, Karl E. - and hey, come with me... if you want to eat.

The Best Literal LOLs Of 2016

Everyone's calling 2016 the great Dumpster Fire of history, but lets be rational, minions: that's hardly fair to dumpsters OR fires.

Besides, even though lots of bad things happened this year, and even though we've lost way too many of our favorite celebrities, let's not forget that 2016 ALSO gave these cake fans exactly what they asked for:

 

 

 

 

"Because we want to really emphasize the 40 part. Women love that."

 

 

And finally, as it turns out, they actually CAN make a cake look exactly like your picture:

Cake-ception!
