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? ;)

5 Times It Didn't Pay To Be Polite

Some people think common courtesy is dead. To these people I say, "Hey, do you mind? I CAN'T HEAR THIS PHONE CONVERSATION OVER THE MOVIE WHILE YOU'RE SHUSHING ME."

(Yes, I'm joking.)

(I have exceptionally good hearing.)

 

And bakers, it seems, are especially bewildered by a simple "please" or "thank you:"

Aww, it's almost sad; the baker missed her own thanking!

 

I say "almost" sad because after you realize how often this happens...

It gets kinda funny.

 

Text reads: "Happy Birthday Melissa! Thank you much."

 

This "thank you" threw the baker SO badly she tried to cope with random question marks:

Happy Birthday Barbara!?
?Thanks!

You can almost picture her writing this, sobbing, "What does it mean? WHAT DOES IT MEEEEEAAN???"

 

And if you use BOTH "please" and "thank you" there's a real chance you could do permanent damage to your baker. So please, be responsible. Don't let this happen:

Then again, that's no excuse to be rude, either.

And trust me, it doesn't help anyway:

 

Thanks to Nicole P., Stephanie R., Melissa S., Nathan B., Lindsay W., & J.R. for being so easy to please.

A Failure To Communicate, Part 48

There's something really beautiful about one person looking into another's eyes and saying, "I understand you."

And then the other person being all, "Then why did you write 'Au Caps' on my cake when I asked for it in all caps??"

As you can see, that was not the case.

[sound of pin dropping]

Ahem.

 

Granted, 99.99% of the time it's "Happy Birthday," but no no, bakers, I'm SURE that's right:

So Hill Birthday, Jill. HILL BIRTHDAY.

 

For an office retirement party Davis asked the baker to write all the retiree names around the cake randomly:

"No, YOU'RE out of order!!"

Fortunately Davis tells me they were still able to "enjou" the cake.

 

And lastly, my new favorite cake puzzle! Let's see if you can decipher what it was supposed to say:

What, haven't had your coffee yet?

Ok, I'll give you a hint: After all these years, this baker's days are numbered.

Check the comments if you're still lost; I'm sure your fellow wreckies will be happy to oblige. ;)

 

Thanks to Leigh B., Jill H., Davis, & Cindy J. for the brain teaser.
