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 Funny, I Guess?" 

You'll never guess what Beth ordered for her daughter's birthday party!

Or, ok, maybe you will.

 

Ah, but can you decipher the exact words used in this phone call?

Nailed it.

Hey, you're good at this!

 

Now, how well can you follow directions?

Nice to know Jackie keeps herself centered.

 

Marissa's boss was leaving on a trip, so she wanted to get a cake that said, "So................" as an inside joke. She specified that there should be 18 dots, so...

Good luck with that, Marissa.

(I like how the baker spontaneously switched to cursive for just the letter R.)

(Also, "Fallowing?" You ever wonder what these bakers THINK they're writing?)

 

And finally, you guys will never guess where the baker is going with this one!

 

Now with bonus color commentary on today's post: the cast of Hogan's Heros, everybody!

Thanks, guys.

 

And thanks to Beth M., Jenny S., Sky C., Marissa, & Robert F. for addressing the problem.

Some of my favorite submissions this week:

 

I'm gonna go out on a limb here and guess the bakery had room:

 

If you love communication breakdowns on cakes as much as I do, then prepare for an eye-full:

Give it a second.

Theeeere it is.

 

Before I show you Sara's cake, here's her explanation over on Twitter:

So just to be clear, this was supposed to say, "Happy Birthday Julie & Wes."

o.0

 

And finally, Alesha asked her baker to draw a high heel on her cake - so, something kind of like this:

 

Instead, she got this:

Of course, we have to take Alesha's word on the high heel thing; I still say that's a feminine travel urinal.

(Seriously, google "feminine travel urinal" and tell me I'm wrong. And stop looking at me like that. LOTS of people know what feminine travel urinals look like, Ok? LOTS OF THEM.)

 

Thanks to Emma Cal, Brianna T., Sara, & Alesha G. for being my #1 fans.
