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? ;)

Tell Me What You Want, What You Really Really Want

Your wish = my command.

 

"Ok, but I'm adding these decorative scrolly bits to show you what an awesome decorator I am."

 

"Oh, I'm getting the picture alright." [winkwink]

 

"Hey, you know those times when you should be seeing red, but instead you feel kinda blue?"

"Yeah, me neither."

 

"Fortunately for both of us, I don't have to understand your weird code language to follow orders:"

Mine?
Mine?
Mine?

 

Thanks to Kevin B., Eugene K., Tiffany K., Carrie B., & Melissa O., who, of all my wreckporters, are literally the most recent.

 

Hey St. Louis!  We'll see you tonight at 7pm!  WOOHOO!!!

At Least It Wasn't A Flash Drive

I don't know about you guys, but when I get something unexpected in the mail, I can't WAIT to open it.

Well, unless it's a bill. Or junk mail. Or suspiciously soggy*.

Anyway, the point is, I think it's basic human nature to want to know what's inside a mystery container. To explore! To learn! To find potential new sources of money/fame/candy! C'mon, it's the basic premise of birthday parties, Christmas, and that whole Pandora-and-her-box thing.

Case in point: if someone handed you a large padded envelope and asked you to "please put this on my cake," and you were, you know, someone who makes cakes, would you...

A) Open the envelope to see what your customer wants printed on the cake

OR

B) Scan the OUTSIDE of the envelope and print that on the cake?

 

Survey says...

The answer is "Crystal Image Big Prints" clear!

 

Many thanks to Monica S., who reports she got this gem of a response when she complained:

"You never told me to look in the envelope."

 

Anyone else suspect this baker gets a lot of wrapping paper for Christmas?

 

*"Suspiciously Soggy" should totally be a band name. Make this happen, people.
