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? ;)

8 Hilarious Wrecks Bakers Want Us To Believe Are Football Helmets

I'll be the first to admit that a football helmet is not the easiest thing to draw:

It's all round and confusing and stuff.

 

BUT STILL.

But still.

 

Really, bakers?

 

REALLY??

 

If you had no context, tell me you wouldn't think this was a cheese grater:

 

And this was a happy whale:

 

Here's a couch in front of a window:

 

And a, uh...

...demonic hacky sack?

 

Eesh, how sad is it when this is the best one?

 

If only bakers had a helmet shaped PAN, you know? Something that locks them into the right shape, so they absolutely, positively, could NOT mess it...

*headdesk*

 

Thanks to Bruce B., Manda, Matt M., Anony M., Brielle R., Kristin N., Heather F., Rachel K., & Anna E. for finding a reason I might actually need a helmet. (Or possibly a padded desk.)

Don't Mess With The Marines OR Their Cakes

CW reader Joe's sister-in-law brought this picture in to her bakery:

They promised her an exact match.

 

Which was KIND of accurate?

Yeah. Kind of.

 

On the plus side, this gives me a great idea for the "home-cooked meal" John requested for dinner!

That'll be $35.99, sweetie.

 

Thanks to Joe B. for getting the picture.
