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? ;)

Too Hot to Handle, Too Cold to Hold

I love the movie Ghostbusters. And I'm not talking about the kind of love you have for your favorite hair product, ok? I'm talking about a card-carrying, movie-quoting, geek-crushing on Venkman, Ray AND Spengler kind of love. Don't judge me too harshly, now: at least I'm not going all Twilight on you.

(Down, vampire-fans, down! I'm waiting to read the book before seeing the movie, ok?)

ANYway, so, when reader Corrie G. told me she had ordered a Ghostbusters cake, complete with the famous "no-ghost" symbol, I was psyched. And then I saw this:

Now, this beautifully executed Wreck worries me for one reason and one reason only: it means this decorator has not seen Ghostbusters. Oh, the humanity!! The misguided tragedy!! The horror - the ABSOLUTE HORROR!!

Ahem.

Sure, I know lots of you are about to write in saying *you've* never seen Ghostbusters, either. [shudder] Consider this my "encouragement" for you to remedy that situation. It's not like I'm asking you to memorize the entire Bobby Brown rap from Ghostbusters 2 or anything - er, cuz' I'm told you'd have to be just crazy to do something like that... [cough, cough]

Undeserving of Congrats

The mom-to-be was having triplets, so they ordered a cake with "congratulations" written on it three times:


Nice.

On the other end of the spectrum, all they asked for here was "congratulations". Unfortunately the decorator took that to be plural...


Aaand much hilarity ensued.

Melanie U. and Wedge C., er, well done.
