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? ;)

True Colors

You with the baaad eyes

Don't be discouraged!

Oh I realize

It's hard to read orders


In a shop full of people

Who drive you up a wall

And the bakers beside you

Can make you feel so small

But I see your TRUE COLORS

Writing through!

I see your TRUE COLORS

'Cuz that's how I write, too!

So DON'T BE AFRAID!

To let them flow

Your true colors


True colors are literal

Like a "stilleto"

 

[ALL TOGETHER NOW!]

 

And I'll see your TRUE COLORS

Causing "boo"s!

I see your TRUE COLORS

But don't let that stop you!


So don't be afraid!

To let them flow

Your true colors


True colors are "beautiful,"

Like this raaaainbow:

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.
