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? ;)

Let's Play Telephone!

Ladies and gentlemen, the stories you're about to see are true. The phone calls, however, are just how I imagined they went.

 

"Yes, I'd like it to say 'Happy 6th Birthday Robert.' Oh, and could you put Spider-Man on the cake, too? That's his favorite character."

You're welcome, lady!

 

"Just have it say 'Happy Birthday Keith & Arianna,' please."

[writing down order] "Nooo problem, sir. And what kind of decorations would you like?"

"Oh, whatever. I trust you guys."

Foolish man.

 

"Could you write, 'Happy birthday cake, Chloe'?"

[confused look]

"Yes, seriously. She's three years old."

"Ohhh kay. You really want me to write that?"

"Yeah. See, she never says just 'happy birthday,' she always says 'happy birthday cake.'"

"Oh, I get it! Ok, sure, no problem."

*facepalm*

 

"And what message would you like on your cookie cake?"

"Oh, this isn't for any special occasion. Although if you could put sprinkles on it, that'd be cool."

Cool.

 

"Have it say, 'Happy birthday, Mike.'"

Is there an echo in here?

 

"Just put 'Happy birthday, Stephanie.' Thanks!"

Kinda makes you want to yell, "I'm an idiot!!" doesn't it?

 

Thanks to Joanna B., Sheri, Jodee W., Genevieve, Melissa M., Stephanie R. for literally being my most recent wreckporters.

Finally, a Baker Who Gives a Crap

Balloons: 0


Crap: 1


Thanks to Uri S., who thinks a rose by any other name... still doesn't look like a balloon.

 

 

UPDATE: My, my, so many negative Nancies in the comments! After all we've been through, you guys still think I'd put up an intentional wreck? I'm hurt. Truly.*

*Not truly

Anyhoo, for all of you crying "staged!" here's what happened, according to Uri:

"After a lengthy attempt of explanation as to what I wanted on the cake ('just happy birthday with maybe some balloons or something birthday-ee like that') and the woman (who spoke very poor English) behind the counter not understanding- I finally just typed out on my phone what I wanted and handed it to her. This was the result. I was crying I was laughing so hard."
