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? ;)

3 Wedding Wrecks That Completely Missed The Mark

So many wedding wrecks happen when a bride asks for a fondant design done in buttercream - but what happens when it's the opposite? LET'S FIND OUT.

Here's the buttercream design one bride ordered for her wedding:

She had a Fall theme, so her one stipulation: NO ROSES.

 

Which is kind of ironic, since the store-bought roses ended up being the best part!

Now if only the baker had purchased the whole cake from a store, am I right?

Oh! Hey! I just had a great idea:

1) Take orders
2) Give the orders to a real bakery
3) ???
4) PROFIT

 

Moving on....

 

You've got to love this gorgeous butterfly cake. GOT TO.

Adrianna M. certainly did, and ordered one just like it for her wedding - albeit with a few color changes.

o.0

Not sure which colors you asked for, Adrianna, but I'm seeing red.

 

And finally, Janice H. submitted her daughter's wedding cake with the plea, "Please! Stop laughing. IT STILL HURTS."

Yep, the wedding was just a few months ago, so let's try to be respectful of the lady's pain, ok, guys?
Ok. Here goes:

They ordered this style in purple, with gold ruffles:

So if you're wondering what the dirty spot near the bottom is, that's the "gold" part:

OUCH.

[biting lip]

[eye twitching]

I'm... I'm not laughing, Janice. I'm NOT.

I can't speak for the rest of these yahoos, though. Tch. SO RUDE.

 

Thanks to Patty S., Adrianna M., & Janice H. for the bridal tiers.

Our World Cup Runneth Over

Bakers, let's talk about soccer.

Because of all your balls...

...the soccer ball seems to be the most difficult for you guys to grasp.

 

And believe me, when it comes to ball grasping...

...we want you to have a firm grip on the situation.

(John: "Uh, I think that's supposed to be a basketball cou..."
Me: "SHHHH.")

 

For example, some of your balls are too fuzzy:

 

While others are lumpy and uneven:

 

Some of your balls are too small:

 

And others... well... are they supposed to be that color?

 

Look, bakers, we know that Soccer balls come in all shapes and sizes, and each is uniquely beautiful in its own way.

Unless it's this way:

Seriously, man, put that away. You're just embarrassing yourself.

 

And to all you World Cup fans out there:

Hang loose, you crazy nuts, you!

 

Thanks go Andrea C., Jennipher D., Charesse, Becky N., Diane L., Amy N., Abi H., & Ilana W. for the balls-to-the-wall excitement.
