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? ;)

A Failure To Communicate, Part 48

There's something really beautiful about one person looking into another's eyes and saying, "I understand you."

And then the other person being all, "Then why did you write 'Au Caps' on my cake when I asked for it in all caps??"

As you can see, that was not the case.

[sound of pin dropping]

Ahem.

 

Granted, 99.99% of the time it's "Happy Birthday," but no no, bakers, I'm SURE that's right:

So Hill Birthday, Jill. HILL BIRTHDAY.

 

For an office retirement party Davis asked the baker to write all the retiree names around the cake randomly:

"No, YOU'RE out of order!!"

Fortunately Davis tells me they were still able to "enjou" the cake.

 

And lastly, my new favorite cake puzzle! Let's see if you can decipher what it was supposed to say:

What, haven't had your coffee yet?

Ok, I'll give you a hint: After all these years, this baker's days are numbered.

Check the comments if you're still lost; I'm sure your fellow wreckies will be happy to oblige. ;)

 

Thanks to Leigh B., Jill H., Davis, & Cindy J. for the brain teaser.

A Failure To Communicate, Part 45 

Patricia L. asked for "musical things" like notes and bass clefs on her friends' birthday cake.

She got this:

Sing it with me, now:

"I knew you weren't treble when you walked in
So shame on you, yeah!"

:D

The baker told Kimberley F. her cake was too small to fit "happy birthday" on it, so Kimberly said,

"Well, since my sister is turning 45 you can just put a big four and five on it, instead."

"four and five" = 11 letters
"happy birthday" = 13 letters

[banging head on keyboard]

And finally, to this day, Mary and Gus still don't know who Ken is:

What do you know, Ken?
WHAT DO YOU KNOW?!

 

Thanks to Patricia, Kimberley, & Mary and Gus for keeping the mystery alive.
