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? ;)

Get Used to Disappointment

It's time once again to take all your lofty dreams of realized cake-ordering expectations... and douse them with the bitter dregs of cold, hard reality.

Oh, yeah. It's gonna be THAT good.


What they ordered:


What they got:

And here I thought all carrots grew under the ground.





A tip of the hat for an exceptionally crumby job.





Finally. A baby cake I wouldn't mind cutting.


Happy day at the pool:


Nightmare at La Brea Tar Pits:

Anyone else having flashbacks of Tasha Yar's death scene?


Thanks to Megan G., Candace R., Alisha T., Catie S., & Suzanne S., who all "exceed expectations." Mostly because my expectations are really, really low.

In Which We Try To Come Up With New Ways To Say "Nailed It"

The baker swore she could recreate this Mad Hatter cake:


And yet...

To quote Aimee, "Oh, and the cake was burnt."
Well, somebody got burned, am I right?! HEYO! High five!


Don't leave me hanging...



Amber wanted this Mickey Mouse cake for a second birthday party:

Trouble is, she asked the baker to make it out of buttercream instead of fondant, which we all know would require a magic wardrobe, 3 fairies, and a photo of the Loch Ness Monster doing the Macarena.


Hey, wouldn't it be hilarious if I showed you guys a really amazing cake right now?

Yeah, that would've been funny.

And now, for the first time ever, Cake Wrecks proudly presents:
An In-Depth Analysis of the Wreck®

An In-Depth Analysis of the Wreck®


To keep things simple, Cheryl ordered the stock Hello Kitty design off the bakery's website, which looks like this:


You know how they say, "a picture is worth a thousand words?"

Well, in this case, a picture of a picture of a cake on a cake is worth about thirty bucks.



And finally, Angela writes, "This is what I wanted for the groom's cake..."

"...but in the color scheme of his drums, which is a green fade to lighter green with sparkles, like this:"

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA... coughcoughcough... cough...


Oh. You were being serious? No, yeah, sure. That's tooootally gonna happen.


Well, look on the bright side, Angela; at least the baker didn't jam glow sticks into it like on your wedding cake. (Last one.) (Ahhh, good times.)


Thanks to Aimee R., Amber W., Cheryl S., & Angela for drumming up some new lolz.
