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? ;)

Chevron Strikes Again!

Remember when someone ordered a cake with a chevron print, and got a chevron gas symbol instead?

Ah, good times.

 

Well, since then, we've seen a baker do this:

"Cheveron?"

And then, just last week, something amazing happened.

CW reader Ashlee ordered a baby shower cake with a chevron print, and - drum roll, please....

 

THIS HAPPENED:

Chevron, Chevrolet... oooh, so close.

 

Thanks to Fyre & Ashlee J. for the car wreck.

"Near-Miss Day" Hits Home

It's Near-Miss Day, minions, and I know *just* how to celebrate:

 

[singsong] With a UNICOOORN!

[head tilt]

Is... is that a beak?

 

K, icks-nay on the unicorns.
How 'bout a cute butterfly?

Er...

 

Elephant cupcakes?

 

Glass of wine? (Please?)

Arg.

 

C'mon, bakers, it's not like I'm asking for a star performance...

OH COME ON.

 

Tell ya what, guys, just slap down a few celebratory balloons, and we'll call it a day.

Oooh, festive.

 

Nope.

 

NOPE.

 

Seriously?

 

AND THAT'S A DAY.

 

Thanks to Brandi F., Leigh J., Amy H., Michelle, Kerri T., Daniel B., Hilary E., Claire, Eric P., & Joe V. for the farthest "near" misses of the day.
