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? ;)

They See Me Scrollin'

With graduation season upon us, it's time to once again consider that most impossible of shapes:

The lumpy burrito.


No, sorry, I mean that paper noisemaker thing you blow through:


Or is it a Corinthian column?

...made into a Chia Pet?


I'm being silly, of course. We all know these are really bakers' attempts at... uh...

compensating for something.

[evil grin]

Maybe if they anthropomorphized it?

In this case, "anthropomorphize" means "make it look like a poopy lollipop inside a beaker."



Speaking of things that've been nailed:

With a steamroller, by the looks of it.


Well, I trust this has convinced you guys to always request a real paper diploma on your cakes. That way, you're guaranteed to NEVER... uh... oh.

Never mind.

What They Wanted, What They Got: Princess Edition

Ever wonder what you'll really get when you order a princess cake like this?


Well, I have good news!

You're almost certain to get the same toys.


Or maybe you want to spring for the big castle version:

You totally should!


How else will your baker get any airbrush practice?

Mmmm. Spattery.


Not a big princess fan? Never fear, I've got something for you, too!


Now, clap your hands if you believe in fairy wrecks.



Thanks to K.B., Maureen S., & Yesenia for the stellar wreckporting.
