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? ;)

Militarized Pool Noodles

Some folks ordered a cake shaped like the Pentagon, and to be safe, even brought in a picture:

 

They got this:

(The misspelling is what I call "adding insult to a headdesk-induced injury.")

 

Next Jas ordered this bright and beautiful design:

 

But instead, she got liquefied pool noodles:

Mmm. Now there's a texture to get your mouth watering!

(Srsly, what do you have to do to icing to make it look like that? Do I even want to know? Because if it involves someone's toothbrush, I'm pretty sure I don't want to.)

 

And finally, I'm going to end with something that's not cake, but trust me, it's worth it.

See, the group "Sisters By Grace" sent flowers to one of their members a while back, and the card turned up looking like this:

The Sister's Bike Race. Ha!

Ah, but wait, it get better.

Naturally, the Sisters reacted to the goof by doing what any sensible group would do:

They turned it into the group's official t-shirts.

They even included the "love & prayer's" line. :D

See? Told ya it was worth it.

 

Thanks to Sheri, Jas C., & Julie P. for giving non-baking wreckerators a little race.

Almost, But Not Quite, Entirely Unlike Turkey Cakes

Let's face it, bakers: turkeys look silly.

Real turkeys, I mean.

SO SILLY.

 

So in that spirit, why NOT make your turkey cakes look like a snake on a Mexican poncho?

 

Or a volcano with a chicken beak?

 

Or a ruffled... er...

[long pause]
[gratuitous side-eye]
...decorative... pillow.

Yeeeah.

 

I mean, on the one hand, bakers, this is utterly ridiculous. Have you seen a real turkey's head? It's not even brown.

But on the other hand, when else do you get to illustrate an angry little poop being attacked by technicolor leeches?

Never, that's when.

 

So I say... [cranks up America the Beautiful]... GO FOR IT, bakers.

Embrace the ridiculous!

Stretch those legs!

 

Spread-eagle that turkey!

 

Anything goes!!

[record screeches to a halt]

Except this.

THIS IS A NO-GO, BAKERS.

 

Thanks to Heather M., Stieg, Laura B., Sandy F., Dave & Alison, DeLoris N., & Morgan R. for making us all do a triple-take. (Still pretty sure those ARE supposed to be turkeys, though.)
