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? ;)

Americans Werkin' It

Today we celebrate the American work force that labors so hard to keep this great nation of ours running.

Plus the ones who did this:

/\';;'/\

 

Baker: "Well, the customer said she wanted 'Buy Ryan,' but THAT doesn't make any sense, so...
better add some ellipses."

 

And lest you think we only have bakers who do this:

Nope.

In Literal Color

Ok, Wreckies, time for a pop quiz. I'll tell you what these people ordered on their cakes, and then you see if you can guess how the baker wrecked it.

 

We'll start with something easy: 

"A giant 57"

Yeah, at this point you'd probably be more surprised to see just a 57 on there, huh?

 

"Happy Birthday Noah" in red

Apparently a lot of bakers pronounce the word "and" as "'n", because I see a lot of these. So many kids having to share their cakes with a fictional character. It's sad, really.

 

This version's a bit more convoluted, though:

"Happy Birthday Ronda" in chocolate

I wonder how many times Ronda had to explain who Incho was.

 

"Dave and Amanda" inside a heart

Ok, that was another easy one - but why the giant sunflower?

 

"Happy 85th Birthday Angelo" in "happy" colors

It's a lot more fun to read that as "colon" instead of "color." Just sayin'.

 

 "Happy 1st Birthday New New," plus a boy with light brown skin.

(Yes, New New is the actual name.) 

In the baker's defense, it would have taken a LOT more effort to write out, "boy with light brown skin."


Thanks to Jane R., Russ Z., Ronda M., Stephanie M., Kim S., & Heather K. for proving that sometimes you really can get exactly what you ask for.
