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? ;)

Happy Birthday, White Guy!

Sarah C. writes, 

"I was answering a hundred questions while ordering the cake for my husband, Guy's, birthday.

'Cake?'

'Yellow.'

'Icing?'

'Buttercream.'

'What do you want it to say?'

'Happy Birthday, Guy.'

'What color do you want that written in?'

'White.'

"When I went back to pick it up, the woman at the bakery - who wasn't the decorator - gave me a strange look."

 

And I think I see why:  

"And all the fishes say I'm pretty fly for a (White) Guy!"

 

Thanks to Sarah C., who agrees that (White) Guy is looking awful green.

Reading Comprehension -101

"Yes, I'd like it to read, 'Congrats, Michelle! You're graduated!" with green leaves all over, to match the invitations."

  (Now make like a tree, and GET OUT OF HERE.)

 

"And write '2011' somewhere on the cake, too."

(Sometimes I choose to believe the baker was just being a smart ass. It makes it less sad, and more like something I would do. :D)

 

"Hi, I'd like this graduation cake design here, but could you move the plastic grad cap more to the middle? And then write '2011' where the hat would be?"

(I'm not sure what that thing below Connor's name is - maybe a stethoscope?)

 

And now, your final exam: what happens when you order a cake with silver and gold accents for a school's graduation luncheon?

 

Ding ding ding!

You get an A PLUS IN RED PEN!
