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 One, Wrecked!

For her birthday Jamie's friend ordered her a cake with a pretty chevron pattern on it, knowing how much Jamie liked the design.

Now, for those of you NOT on Pinterest, a chevron pattern looks like this:

 

I'm not sure which colors her friend requested, but I doubt it mattered anyway, since...

...the baker just put the Chevron gas station logo on it, instead.

 

Bwahahaa!

 

Thanks, Becky! That was a real gas!

And 10 geek points to anyone who caught my Stargate reference. ;)

Picture This

So Shawna A. asked her bakery to make a cake just like this one from Pink Cake Box:

To make it easier, she even brought in a print-out of this picture. And, since she wanted her cake to say "Welcome Little Monkey" instead of "Happy Birthday," she was sure to cross that bit out. That way, there could be no confusion whatsoever, right?

 

Riiiight.

All in favor of banning the edible photo printer for all eternity, say "Oy VEY."

 

I think the "veys" have it, Shawna.
