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? ;)

Purse Your Lips; It's National Handbag Day!

"Encounter In A NYC Alley"
A play in one act.

***

"Hey pretty lady, how 'bout a genuine Prawda hand bag?

"100% genuine! Just six hundred dollars!"

 

"Wait, don't walk away! Hey, mister, don't you want your pretty wife to look pretty? Don't you love your wife? Doesn't your wife deserve Guchi?"

"Five hundred is my final offer, but my kids won't eat tonight!"

 

[chasing after couple]

"I see you have a discerning eye. Only the best for such distinguished customers!"

"Donny and Bork! $300 but my mom won't get her hip replacement!"

 

[grabbing wife by the ankles]

"Think of my sick cats! This is a genuine Coatch bag! Seven thousand dollars retail!"

"For you? $200. I'm literally giving it to you for that! I'm losing money!"

 

[wife now dragging seller across the sidewalk]

"Okay! I was saving this one for my cousin who has rabies but I'm willing to give it to you for just $100. It's a genuine Louise Vitton! You can tell by the zipper!"

...

"FINE! If you'll leave us alone, I'll give you ten bucks for the bag."

"You have literally murdered my children. This is an INSULT. I can't even LOOK at you anymore.

"...Gimme twelve and I'll throw in a free pair of Lowbootins."

"Deal."

 

Thanks to Kimberly C., Lourdes, Ruby R., Anony M., Sarah D., & Jill D. for knowing these shoes were made for wreckin' - and that they were supposed to be shoes in the first place. 0.o

They're All Mad There

Right, minions, let's do this one by the numbers.

Here's what Michael B. asked for:

 

Aaaaand here's what he got:

So something here clearly doesn't add up.

 

And if you thought numbers were hard - which, let's be honest, you did not - imagine the issues a wreckerator might have trying to recreate THIS:

Yep, someone wanted a cake Mason jar.
(I blame Pinterest.)

In fact, not just one someone, TWO someones!

Here's Someone #1's version:

I am raising a single eyebrow SO HARD right now.

 

Aaaaand Someone #2's:

Which is appropriate, since it's definitely bringing to mind #2.

 

And finally, Trevia ordered this lovely Alice in Wonderland cake:

...minus the teapot and epic "ONEderland" pun.

 

Even if you believe six impossible things before breakfast, this one's a little hard to swallow:

Though it definitely made someone mad. o.0

 

Thanks to Michael B., Crystal B., Stephanie H., & Trevia M. for taking the fall down that rabbit hole for us.
