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? ;)

We've Been Scrooged!

Remember how Scrooge McDuck always said to "work smarter, not harder?"  (No? Aw, go play with your pokey balls, youngsters. AND GET OFF MY LAWN.)

Well, just imagine what ol' Scrooge would have to say about these

"Thanks, Sandi Make the S into Dollar Signs $"

 

Sadly, this next directive failed on all counts:

And to think: all she wanted was Happy Birthday, arched like a rainbow, with the middle clear for a candle. You know, nice and simple.

 

 

This is how a wreckerator shows off. "See? You SAID 'white writing' and I WROTE 'white writting' in white writing. I even threw an extra 't' in, no charge."

 

I think ol' Scrooge would have been proud of this one, though:

After all, it IS a lot easier to write "blue anchor" than actually draw one. And judging by the amount of wrecks like this I see photographed at home, SOMEBODY is obviously buying them. Why, you'll be swimming in your own vault of pennies in no time, wreckers!

 

Thanks to Leslie S.,  April B., Ashantae, Kristi L., & Ellen S. for the fowl advice.

I Think I Get The Picture

"Hi, I'd like to order a monkey cake for my son, but I want to make sure there won't be any mix-ups like what happened last week."

"Oh? What happened last week?"

"Well, I brought in a reference for my nephew's monkey cake - a paper party plate -  and you guys just took a picture of it and glued the picture to the cake!"  

 "I see. And that's bad because....?"

"Because I just wanted the monkey! Not the paper plate!!"

"OH! Oh, yes! Of course. Sorry, I thought that was some kind of a pun."

[silence]

"So...look, this time, just to be extra clear, I brought you a picture of the actual cake I want you to make. Here:"

 

 

"So you want a cake that looks just like this?"

"That's right, a cake that looks JUST LIKE THAT."

[silence]

"I think we can do that."

"Good. Thank you. I'm so glad we got that cleared up."

Poor 2nd Devon. (Or is that 2rd Devon?) Although I guess it IS kind of fitting that the Devon copy gets a cake copy (complete with copied candles!). Hey, how much do you wanna bet his presents were all just pictures of toys? :D

 

Thanks for the monkey business,  Kee & Erin M.
