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? ;)

Some of my favorite new submissions this week.

 

Guys, if you ever want a 3D sculpted cake like this:

 

...and your baker claims she can make a cupcake cake (patooie!) look just like it, DO NOT BELIEVE HER.

On the plus side, I hear hippo skin rugs are all the rage now in child therapy sessions.

They asked for a book cake of The Great Gatsby:

NAILED IT.

You know, when *I* was a kid they didn't have all these new-fangled flavored fillings:

"Ok, ma'am, your cake has room for three lines of text."

"Great! I'd like 'Mazel Tov' on the first line, and 'Sara Rose' on the second."

"And for the third line?"

"Oh, just leave that blank."

***

 

Apparently Jennifer K's husband never gets her anything for their anniversary, so for the big 10 she got him a cake. That said this:

I really shouldn't be finding this so funny, should I?

 ***

 

"Hey, guys, is 'give up' all one word?

Is there a dash?

How do you spell it, again?

Is this right?

How about now?

OH FORGET IT."

Mmmm, sweet irony.

"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.
