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? ;)

is pleased to present an exciting new opportunity!

Bad Enough Baking School!

In just a few short weeks, you too can bake:

"Hell No Kitty!"

and other vaguely recognizable characters that are just Bad Enough to avoid pesky copyright litigation.

 

Haven't you always dreamed of turning out masterpieces like:

Iron Toaster

2 settings: Light or Stark.

 

Mickey Mumps

"Who's the leader of the club
With no immunity?
M-I-C-K-E-Y
Stay away from me!"

 

Buzzankhamun

Boy Pharaoh or Space Explorer?

Can't decide = indemnified!

 

Barney the Carnivore

I love meat, you smell good. Gonna eat your neighborhood! ♫

 

Scary-el

"I'd give anything to have legs so I could walk off this cake."

 

Dora the Deplorable

Brace yourself!

 

And that perennial favorite:

The Cat In Hazmat!

The sun did not shine.
It was too wet to play.
So we sat in the house
And watched the cat decay.

I can't deny how thankful we are to Brad B., Johanna L., Jayme A., Clarissa W., Katey L., Stephanie D., Anony M., and Kristy C., for being good enough to realize these were bad enough.

That Crowning Touch

Ok, bakers, time to make some princess tiaras!

Now remember, we want them to look like this:

Because reasons.

 

And we can only make cupcake cakes (patooie!), because cupcake cakes (patooie!) are just so clean and beautiful and easy to serve:

[deadpan stare]

 

Aaaaand... GO.

[wincing] Oooh, SO CLOSE.

 

Less close.

(Am I the only one who sees a star stepping over a puddle?)

 

What the...?
No.

 

[softly banging head on desk]
NO!!

 

I give up.

 

Let's just go back to making King cakes.

Perfect.

 

Thanks to Liz, Chris L., Ann Marie P., Kristin M., Hannah C., Valerie B., & Erich B., who totally rule.
