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? ;)

Meanwhile, At Hydra HQ...

"Minion! Did you take care of Captain America's shield?"

"Yes, commander! After today, that meddlesome schoolboy won't even recognize his shield."

"Exxxxcellent. Out of curiosity, what did you do?"

"Sir?"

"To Roger's shield. How did you sabotage it? Acid? Explosives? Radioactive vermin? What?"

"Oh. Um, I'm not sure 'sabotage' is the right word, sir."

"Then what DID you do, you fool?"

"Well..."

"YOU IDIOT."

 

"But, commander, wait 'til you see what I did to Iron Man's helmet!"

"And Thor's hammer!"

"Gah, you're even worse at baking than you are at minioning. Do you have anything else to say for yourself?

 

"Um... Hail... Hyera?"

"That's it. YOU'RE FIRED."

3 Wedding Wrecks That Completely Missed The Mark

So many wedding wrecks happen when a bride asks for a fondant design done in buttercream - but what happens when it's the opposite? LET'S FIND OUT.

Here's the buttercream design one bride ordered for her wedding:

She had a Fall theme, so her one stipulation: NO ROSES.

 

Which is kind of ironic, since the store-bought roses ended up being the best part!

Now if only the baker had purchased the whole cake from a store, am I right?

Oh! Hey! I just had a great idea:

1) Take orders
2) Give the orders to a real bakery
3) ???
4) PROFIT

 

Moving on....

 

You've got to love this gorgeous butterfly cake. GOT TO.

Adrianna M. certainly did, and ordered one just like it for her wedding - albeit with a few color changes.

o.0

Not sure which colors you asked for, Adrianna, but I'm seeing red.

 

And finally, Janice H. submitted her daughter's wedding cake with the plea, "Please! Stop laughing. IT STILL HURTS."

Yep, the wedding was just a few months ago, so let's try to be respectful of the lady's pain, ok, guys?
Ok. Here goes:

They ordered this style in purple, with gold ruffles:

So if you're wondering what the dirty spot near the bottom is, that's the "gold" part:

OUCH.

[biting lip]

[eye twitching]

I'm... I'm not laughing, Janice. I'm NOT.

I can't speak for the rest of these yahoos, though. Tch. SO RUDE.

 

Thanks to Patty S., Adrianna M., & Janice H. for the bridal tiers.
