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? ;)

Ooooooh. Drippy.

 

To rows of wedding tears:

Hershey's Syrup:
You're doing it wrong.

 

Here's a little Disney magic for you:

 

Bippity, Boppity...

BOO!

 

Ah, but that's nothing. Want to see something REALLY wild?

 

This is what happens when animal print cakes feel blue:

And also kind of intestine-y.

 

Thanks to Jessica W., Diana B., Gina L., & Leighanne G. for the excuse to use "intestine-y." I've been holding on to that one for YEARS.

Less-Than-Superb Owl Wreckage

My Superb Owl Sweets for Super Bowl Sunday must have been super inspirational, because look what Ashley ordered for her daughter's birthday!

D'awww.

Ashley ordered it from a different baker, though, which meant there were bound to be just a few slight differences.

[biting lip]
Er...

Quick, look at the cake. Look at the cake!

AHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHHAAAAAAAA!!

Whooo WEEE! Almost didn't make it, there.

 

Thanks to Ashley G. for reminding us that wreckage can be a real hoot.
