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? ;)

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.

Yahoo!

Apparently the art never got "broght," but what this cake lacks in illustration, proper spelling, and centering, it definitely makes up for with enthusiasm!!


Thanks to twoboysmomma, with 3 exclamation points.

UPDATE: For those of you looking for some hidden meaning to this cake: There is none. I believe it was ordered by Yahoo for a company function.
