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? ;)

What Can I Say, Except, "You're Welcome"?

Be honest, minions: am I taking this Moana obsession too far? The constant singing, the aggressive YOU'RE WELCOME-ing, the unrequited mooning over a cross-eyed rooster?

No?

OH GOOD.

Then check this out:

Brandy ordered this Moana cake for her 9-year old, and I think we can all agree it was a wise move. Not only because MOANA, but because it's a printed edible image. That means no guesswork! No drawing! No instructions to fowl up! (HEY HEY ROOSTER SHOUT-OUT)

And yet, as it turns out,

Every turn we take
Every trail we track
Every ordered cake
Every road leads back
to a place we know:

Specifically, the place where a baker insists this is exactly what you ordered and you should totally pay for it.

 

My thoughts exactly.

 

Thanks to Brandy L. for providing all the wreckage that's fit to print.

Snickering Really Satisfies

Finally, minions - at long last!
A candy cake wreck to rival the great Hershey Kiss-And-Yell debacle of 2013!

Here, let me set this up for you.

This is what Jill wanted for her friend Becky's retirement party:

Only, you know, as a cake.

It didn't even have to be shaped like the candy bar; just rectangular and with the same design and colors, so people got the overall Snickers vibe.

You know how the commercials claim Snickers makes you less grumpy?

Let's hope Jill had a looooot of candy bars on hand when this was served.

o.0

At first I thought it was a camo cake going for a patriotic theme. (I mean, it's green.)

Then I actually read Jill's e-mail.

Then I may have done one of these:

It's the little things, minions. The little, hysterically wrong things.

 

Thanks to Jill H. for reminding us snickering really satisfies.
