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? ;)

These Bakers REALLY Hate Drawing

Tracee asked her baker to write "Good Luck at Regionals" and then add a volleyball.

Which, technically, is exactly what the baker did:

::facepalm::

(Anyone else wonder what would have happened if they'd had an actual volleyball in the bakery?
Because these are the mental images that bring me joy.)

 

Jordan just wanted the number 100 and a smiley face emoji on her super-simple cake design, but a little something got lost in translation:

:)

 

I like to think this is only because someone didn't know the word "emoji," but let's face it [snerk]:

It wouldn't have helped.

 

And finally, parents, I'm afraid you'll have to be SUPER specific when ordering a Power Rangers cake for your kiddo's birthday:

Unless you want to tell the party it'll morph later, hide it, then run to the bakery for a new one.

 

Thanks to Tracee W., Jordan G., Nicole M., & Jennifer K. for literally being the best wreckporters of all time today.

Not-So-Basic Instructions

There's a certain creativity to literal LOLs - a kind of "outside the box" thinking that never fails to impress me. The kind that says, "Oh, you want the words written in purple? THEN THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT I WILL WRITE."

"But not necessarily in that color."

Also, it turns out those are not garbage bags in a windstorm.

 

You might think it would help to spell out the name for a birthday cake, but that's not always the case - as "Alison with one L" discovered:

Wait for it... waaaiit for it...

 

And lest you think it's better to write it down  - and perhaps add a helpful footnote:

 

NOPE.

 

Adding a P.S. is never a good idea, either:

 

The fact is, sometimes wreckerators just have a hard time getting the picture:

Or maybe they just really stink at drawing.
