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? ;)

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®


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.)

Sorry, Betsy

You're a grand old flag,


You're a high flying flag,


And forever in peace pieces may you waaaave.


You're the emblem of
The land I love!


The home of the free and the braaaave!



Happy Flag Week, y'all.

Remember to save room for impaled doggy!
