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? ;)

Hats Off To Betty Boop's Trunks

Minions, it thrills my geeky little heart to see you Agent Carter fans ordering her iconic red hat as a cake:

Ooooh. Aaaah.


But I must admit, it's also a thrill to pull a new pun out of my hat, so....

Looks like someone...
...busted a cap.

Thank you, thank you verramuch. And hey, that was just off the top of my head.

(Your groans are music to my ears, people.)


This sweet Bettie Boop miss practically writes itself:





It would probably be indelicate to mention how many times I've warned you all about the horrors of cupcake cakes (ptooie!), so I won't. Instead, I'll just let Mary's pictures tell the story:

It was supposed to be this.




So take a card from the sand-covered mutant elephant, my friends, and NEVER FORGET.


Thanks to Jessica S., Anita S., & Mary B. for mastering the elephant of surprise.

And now, everyone's* favorite:

(*May not be your favorite. You may prefer cakes that look like wangs. Which is totally cool. Weirdo.)


Ashton H. wanted a pretty princess carriage like this:


...but I think she picked it up after midnight.

Womp WOMP.


Felicia F. ordered this stunner for her Uncle's birthday:

"I like... GOOOOLD!"


But instead, she just got stunned:

Shoulda gone with a schmoke an' a pancake.

Also, sometimes I like to amuse myself by referencing Austin Powers villains.
Because everyone needs a hobby.


Jyoti K. asked for this adorable princess cake:



But instead, got this:



Nicholas W. actually had his baker send HIM this photo, saying this is what the cake would look like:



Turns out...

It didn't really look like that.


And finally, Roshnid H. ordered this peacock cake:

Now, I know what you're thinking.

You're thinking, "Hey, wouldn't it be cool if Roshnid's cake ended up looking like the Loch Ness monster with a bunch of shaving cream on its nose?"

Well, my friend, YOU ARE IN LUCK.

Because yes:

Yes, it would.


Thanks to Ashton H., Felicia F., Jyoti K., Nicholas W., & Roshnid H., who suspects that may actually just be a floating log - but WE BELIEVE.
