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? ;)

Some of my favorite submissions this week:

 

I'm gonna go out on a limb here and guess the bakery had room:

 

If you love communication breakdowns on cakes as much as I do, then prepare for an eye-full:

Give it a second.

Theeeere it is.

 

Before I show you Sara's cake, here's her explanation over on Twitter:

So just to be clear, this was supposed to say, "Happy Birthday Julie & Wes."

o.0

 

And finally, Alesha asked her baker to draw a high heel on her cake - so, something kind of like this:

 

Instead, she got this:

Of course, we have to take Alesha's word on the high heel thing; I still say that's a feminine travel urinal.

(Seriously, google "feminine travel urinal" and tell me I'm wrong. And stop looking at me like that. LOTS of people know what feminine travel urinals look like, Ok? LOTS OF THEM.)

 

Thanks to Emma Cal, Brianna T., Sara, & Alesha G. for being my #1 fans.

Anything You Can Wreck, I Can Wreck Better

Brittany G. writes,

"A friend got a promotion a while back, so his team ordered a cake and asked the baker to draw a ladder with a stick figure climbing it, which said 'Moving On Up.'"

Instead, they got this:

"One Wreck El Grande for... Brick Bee? Is there a 'brick bee' here?"*

Part of me reeeeally wishes there were little lattes drawn on the side. Also, gotta love that "one two punch" of a color combo, am I right? SO APPETIZING.

 

*That joke was for you, Alice.

And please tell Phteven we said hello.

 

But wait, there's more!

The team was so inspired that they decided to make their own homage - and it. is. perfect.

[stick figure applauding]

 

Thanks to Brittany G. & Kate S. for the Java errors.
