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? ;)

Sofa King Funny

Happy Fat Tuesday, everybody!

Now, as we all know, there's only ONE traditional Mardi Gras dessert bakers have to make today: the King Cake.

So naturally they're making everything BUT.

They've got Mardi Gras cupcakes:

 

Mardi Gras cookie cakes:

 

Mardi Gras layer cakes:

 

...and Mardi Gras donuts:

 

Heck, they've even got Mardi Gras cinnamon rolls arranged to look like a vaguely unsettling fleur-de-lis:

 

Then a few brave souls decided to tackle the iconic Mardi Gras masquerade mask:

 

Which... did not go well.

 

 

Wow.

 

Seriously, bakers, what gives? All anyone wanted today was a giant dough ring with a bunch of icing and plastic crap on it, like this:

That's not so hard, is it?

 

Ok, now you try.

O.o

On second thought, better stick with the cupcakes.

 

Thanks to Michelle L., Amy C., Sommer, Robbie B., Jessica S., Kemberlee B., Lisa, & Christine L. for showing us what a Queen cake might look like. HEYOOOO.
