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? ;)

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."

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!!!
