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? ;)

Lose Or Draw: There Is No "Win"

You've heard of "Win, Lose, or Draw?" Well, I think I found the cake version:

Write, Wreck, or Win!

Ok, so it doesn't have the same ring to it, but allow me to demonstrate.








Pretty fun, right?

Let's try another one.








Ok, last one:



(It was for a teacher, so they wanted a picture of an apple.)



(Don't worry, lady apple.
He's not happy to see you.
It's a worm.)



I mean that in the purely ironic sense, of course.


And finally, a helpful reminder that it's not just bakers:

Now that's a "win."

I Never Inhaled

This was ordered for a school competition called the Academic Decathlon:

Or, as Wreckerators know it, "AcPec."

Now, I'd like to say that at least they spelled "capitalize" right, buuuut...

they didn't.



The following is a dramatization. The Wreck, however, is very real.

Bakery: "Yello!"

Jenny C.: "Hi, I'd like a cake with 'Happy Birthday' on it."

Bakery: "Sure! Anything else?"

Jenny C: [shaking head] "Just 'Happy Birthday'."

Bakery: "Okey dokey!"



Two friends nicknamed Frizz and Kermit ask a baker to hold a blank cake for them while they finish their shopping. The baker agrees, and sticks a hold tag on the box.

What happened next? Only the Wrecker knows.

"On hold regularly."

Well that clears things up.



And finally, Anda ordered a couple of cakes for a birthday party. To keep it simple, she asked for the same inscription on both. Which is exactly what she got.

Yep, despite the fact that the Wreckerator wrote "bath," s/he actually did write the same thing on both.

I don't have a photo of the second cake, but Anda assures me it looked a lot like this:


And the kicker?

The store refused to fix them.


Because - waaaait for it - that's what she asked for.


All together now: *sigh*


Kristy M., Jenny C., Ellen K., & Anda S., this post would make a great breathing exercise. :)
