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? ;)

As perfect as that is, I feel kinda bad that Taryn didn't get her unicorn.


Humpy Dumpy


Elvis McSquiggle Eye


"Nothing To See Here" Brutus the Smoothest [WINK WINK]


And I can't decide which of these last two is my favorite:

Squintsy the Aardvark



Stumpy Wallbanger.

Missed Marks: Fondant To Fondant Edition

You may have noticed that whenever we post a missed mark with a fondant inspiration cake, like this:


...and a buttercream wreck, like this:

...we tend to get a lot of the same complaints.

"You can't compare fondant designs to buttercream!"

"The second cake would have looked FINE if it was done in fondant!"

"This blog isn't funny anymore!"


So, in the interest of fairness and maximum "I told you so" potential, today's missed marks are ALL fondant.







Thanks to Devon M., Jeannie S., Kat M., Amanda H., Summer R., & Ziggo for telling us so.
