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? ;)

Keep It Stupid, Stupid

When April W.'s mom ordered a Father's Day cake last year, the clerk seemed to think that a name should go on the cake as well. Since there was more than one Dad in the house, though, April's mom insisted that the cake only say Happy Father's Day.

Or maybe her exact words were "Father's Day Only" - it's kind of hard to say...

I realize this is going to seem nit-picky, but I really want to know why the "t" is the only letter not capitalized. Seriously. Does that strike anyone else as odd?


There are perils in the world of random capitalization, though:

See? In addition to being ugly as original sin, this CCC [pthoo!] looks like it says "Worid's Best Dad". Not good.

A simpler way of expressing Dad's superiority might be the ol' standby: "#1 Dad", or "Dad is #1". So let's see how the modern Wreckerator is able to screw even those up, shall we?

[sigh]


Yoda strikes again?

Ok, obviously these inscriptions are just too long and complicated. So let's cut out all the extraneous stuff and get right to the heart of the matter:

Perfect.

Letter VS Spirit

These Wreckerators get points for obeying the customer's instructions to the letter...


Of course, they then LOSE those points for writing the instructions on the cake.


Believe it or not, some folks are starting to ask for Wrecks like these ("Happy Birthday Under Neat That", etc) which adds a whole new level of hilarity when the bakery gets it wrong by getting it right.

For example, Corrie wanted a Wreckplica of the infamous Curious George CCC that said "Cangrtalations Corrie" on it for her graduation cake. She got this:


Granted, I think the decorator captured the true horror of the original Wreck quite well, but she also "corrected" Corrie's intentional misspelling to read "Congrats Carrie!"

Wow, it's like a Wreck to the third power, huh, Corrie? That is so awesome.

And for those of you wondering about the first two: Katelyn W. & Erin M. assure me they're legit. And since they used very sincere fonts, I believe them.
