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? ;)

So, Where Ya Want It?

It's always important to tell your baker where you want the writing on your cake, lest you end up with one of these situations:

"Really, it's the only place that just made sense."

 

So, for instance, if you ask a baker to "write Happy Birthday on top," you might get this:

 

...but you could ALSO get this:

Which is hilarious.
But still wrong.

 

So try to be specific! Use words like "in the middle" to avoid confusion.

See how much clearer that is?

 

And you can't go wrong with directions like "over this" and "under that," right?

I mean, when has that ever caused a problem?

 

Oh! And if you're ordering a specific cake kit design, just use that as a reference.

It does help if your baker knows what an "outfield" is.

 

Um...

They... they just moved the hat.

Huh.

This is going to be harder than I thought.

 

Well, dear minions, in the end you'll just have to trust that most of your inscription will probably end up on the cake somewhere.

And then you can always send it to me.

:D

Tell Me What You Want, What You Really Really Want

Sometimes when a cake makes no sense, it's helpful to ask yourself, "What do you suppose the customer asked for?"

Insults 101: When calling a girl a dog, it's always helpful to be breed-specific.

 

(For what it's worth, I'm pretty sure that's not how Mrs. Hopperband spells her name.)

 

"Look, I just want what every girl wants for her birthday: a big- a$$ cake!"

Eh. [shrugging] As I'm sure every cake-loving girl would agree: close enough. Pass the forks!

 

Sometimes you just want a sugary baked good for no reason at all. And yet, without an inscription, what can Wreckerators wreck? That's why they're so adamant that your cake say something.

And that's also why we get Wrecks like these:

Give it a minute.
