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? ;)

Mist Marx

And now, everyone's* favorite:
MISSED MARKS!!!

(*May not be your favorite. You may prefer cakes that look like wangs. Which is totally cool. Weirdo.)

 

Ashton H. wanted a pretty princess carriage like this:

 

...but I think she picked it up after midnight.

Womp WOMP.

 

Felicia F. ordered this stunner for her Uncle's birthday:

"I like... GOOOOLD!"

 

But instead, she just got stunned:

Shoulda gone with a schmoke an' a pancake.

Also, sometimes I like to amuse myself by referencing Austin Powers villains.
Because everyone needs a hobby.

 

Jyoti K. asked for this adorable princess cake:

D'awww.

 

But instead, got this:

D'aaaaauuuugh!

 

Nicholas W. actually had his baker send HIM this photo, saying this is what the cake would look like:

Nice!

Soooo...

Turns out...

It didn't really look like that.

 

And finally, Roshnid H. ordered this peacock cake:

Now, I know what you're thinking.

You're thinking, "Hey, wouldn't it be cool if Roshnid's cake ended up looking like the Loch Ness monster with a bunch of shaving cream on its nose?"

Well, my friend, YOU ARE IN LUCK.

Because yes:

Yes, it would.

 

Thanks to Ashton H., Felicia F., Jyoti K., Nicholas W., & Roshnid H., who suspects that may actually just be a floating log - but WE BELIEVE.

Geek Life, Cake Style

A few times a year John and I go to commune with Our People at local sci-fi and comic conventions. This weekend is one of the big ones here in Orlando, so we've been feverishly finishing up a new costume to wear - because yes, we're THOSE kinds of geeks.

Of course you're just here for cake pictures, though... so here's a cakey hint at what our costume's going to be:

It reminds me of the babe. And Christmas tinsel.

 

And since I've got geekdom on the brain, here's a Missed Mark for you Doctor Who fans:

OoooOOoooo

 

AAAAIIEEEEEEEEE!

 

And one for Batman:

 

This must be after Superman beat him up.

 

Sorry to break it to you, Avengers fans, but it turns out Thor is a real heel:

You are not worthy to lift his... HAMMERTOE.

But hey, at least he's got sole.

(I think the baker did it just for kicks. It's a shoe-in for "weirdest cupcake," don't you think?)

 

For you classic comic fans, here's Batman giving Robin the wedgie of the century:

"Sweet spandex-strangling sausages, Batman, that stings!"

 

And let us never forget:

I have been, and shall always be, mortally offended by this cake. [glare]

 

But to end on a happy note, allow me to present wrecky minion Melissa P.'s daughter, along with the birthday cake she specifically requested:

Princess Hulk.

Now THAT is a Hulk "smash" cake, y'all. AND I APPROVE.

 

Thanks to Tiffani W., Joe H., De C., Sarah B., Leah S., Wendy D., & Melissa P. for raising The Next Generation just right. And hey, see some of you at MegaCon this weekend!
