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? ;)

Less-Than-Superb Owl Wreckage

My Superb Owl Sweets for Super Bowl Sunday must have been super inspirational, because look what Ashley ordered for her daughter's birthday!

D'awww.

Ashley ordered it from a different baker, though, which meant there were bound to be just a few slight differences.

Er...

Quick, look at the cake. Look at the cake!

AHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHHAAAAAAAA!!

Whooo WEEE! Almost didn't make it, there.

 

Thanks to Ashley G. for reminding us that wreckage can be a real hoot.

Evolution Of A Big Bird Wreck

Stage 1: Excitement

"...now simply pipe seven thousand individual strands and you're done!"

 

Stage 2: Compromise

"Well, it's still kind of feathery..."

 

Stage 3: Apathy

"Meh, just spray it yellow."

 

Stage 4: Passive Aggression

"We call it, 'Big Bird In A Snow Storm.'

"And that'll be $37.99."

 

Thanks to Anony M., Rose T., Anony M., & Shannon B. for finding the face of despair. (Seriously, the longer you look, the more depressing it gets.)
