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? ;)

And this was a happy whale:


Here's a couch in front of a window:


And a, uh...

...demonic hacky sack?


Eesh, how sad is it when this is the best one?


If only bakers had a helmet shaped PAN, you know? Something that locks them into the right shape, so they absolutely, positively, could NOT mess it...



Thanks to Bruce B., Manda, Matt M., Anony M., Brielle R., Kristin N., Heather F., Rachel K., & Anna E. for finding a reason I might actually need a helmet. (Or possibly a padded desk.)

Don't Mess With The Marines OR Their Cakes

CW reader Joe's sister-in-law brought this picture in to her bakery:

They promised her an exact match.


Which was KIND of accurate?

Yeah. Kind of.


On the plus side, this gives me a great idea for the "home-cooked meal" John requested for dinner!

That'll be $35.99, sweetie.


Thanks to Joe B. for getting the picture.
