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? ;)

After all of the weekend's Mother's Day celebrations, I think it's time to balance things out with some extra MANLY cakes. Think you can do that, bakers?

Good, because Andrea here would like a "manly" 39th birthday cake, if you please.

No, no, see, I mean the cake. Make the cake manly.


Try again for Stephanie P.'s order. Go on. Make it manly!


Hmm. Maybe the word is what's tripping you up. Ok, look: Bre J. wants a 30th birthday cake for Reese. Reese is a boy, so she wants a cake that reflects that. See, she even wrote "male" in parentheses after his name on the order form.

...which, come to think of it, may not have been the best idea.

("Malie?" Really?)


Tell you what, bakers, just make us a generic cake, no writing, and give it the manliest decorations you can think of. Something that really screams "MAN CAKE," you know?

Oh, you've got something? Great! Let's see it.

Touché, bakers. TOUCH´E.


Thanks to Andrea, Stephanie P., Bre J., Nathan W. for at least not giving us another shuttlecock cake.

Hi, I'm here to pick up a cake? It's the "Happy Birthday Brittany" one.

Ah, no, see, that second "Birthday" should be "Brittany."


 No no, this has Brittany twice. I need "Happy Birthday" on it.

Ok, now you've just combined them into one word. There should be three.


 You don't mind if I bang my head on this counter here, do you?


 Look, forget the name. Could you just give me a cake that says "Happy Birthday," with sprinkles on it? Yes? Great. Thanks.





Thanks to Anony M., Bethany C., Angela A., Margo R., Brian R., & Kasha D.  for the dental training. (Because it's like pulling teeth? Eh?)
