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? ;)

Missed Marks To Make You Go NOOOOOOOO

Anna D. ordered a cake to look like this top tier:

So... pink and blingy. Gotcha.


Now, before I show you what she got, have you ever seen those stress toys with the eyes that pop out when you squeeze them?

You have?

Ok, cool.

Just curious.



You can scroll down now.

Deep breaths, Jen, deep breaths. It's NOT a living thing, and those bubble things are NOT growing and/or pulsating. They're NOT.

You know what, let's just keep scrolling.



Speaking of cakes that look unfortunately skin-like, Cassie P. ordered this adorable giraffe cake:


...but instead, she got this:

There's a sound for this cake, and it goes something like:



And finally, how about a wedding cake? Wedding cakes are always fun.

OK, so Jessica ordered this cheery sunflower number:



...and I'm happy to report that the baker was extremely thorough, and managed to get everything - with only one tiny exception - entirely and completely wrong.

I think your baker grabbed someone else's cake and jammed in those sunflower headlights last second, Jessica.

But on the plus side, if you back up and squint a little - or a lot - it's totally smiling at us.


Thanks to Anna D., Cassie P., & Jessica C. for all having rhyming last initials; that makes it more fun for me, see? TEEHEE.

Old Glory Daze

Today, we celebrate...the American Flag.


O-oh, say can you SEEEE? BYYY the bakery light?
How so soundly they failed... to give our flag any meaning:


Those brown stripes and blob "stars" ARE a scurr-i-lous sight!


And the RED parts they botched... are so def'nitely leaning:


And what's that O-VER THEEEERE?!

[cymbal crash!!]



[slide whistle!]


A goof, what a sight - it's more THAN I can bear.

(Yes. Really.)


No WAY does thi-is new-fangled airbru-ush yet blaa-aaaave!

[You know, "to blave?" It means "to bluff."]

[Now, someone fetch me an MLT!]



For the BAND of the THREEEEEE (red stripes)...


And the hoooome...of theeeee....WAAAAAAAVE!

(Before you ask: all of today's wrecks were sold right here in the good ol' US of A, on or around American holidays. I also have LOTS more where these came from. [proffering tissue] Tissue, teachers?)


Thanks to ToniAnn B., Trace L., Stephanie P., Sarah C., Kelly S., Sharon E., Lori A., Lin Q., & Daniel K. for their flagging enthusiasm.

Happy Flag Day!
