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? ;)

Leggo My Logo

Susan S. ordered a birthday cake with the Ohio State logo on it, which looks like this:

Think something could have gone wrong?


Here's your sign:

"In the naaaame of love!"


Apparently this is a high school logo, though Missy didn't mention which one:


Now the baker reversed the colors, sure, but the W was her real crowning achievement:



Ok, Kassandra, tell us what you want. What you really, really want.

Roger that!


Thanks to Susan, Missy, and Kassandra for spelling it all out for us.

Do You Wanna Bake a Snowman?

With Frozen all the rage right now, I thought we'd take a look at the new design going like gangbusters at local bakeries. It's supposed to look like this:

Which is a bit... odd. I mean, I guess those are snow-capped mountains - and Anna's floating down a river, hip-deep in a glacier? Ok, sure. But how do the bakers get the mountains to stick up like that?


Short answer? They don't.

Oooh, look. A cut-off toe-sock. With some glitter.

[jazz hands]


Of course, it could be worse.

Like this!

Frozen has left the building, kids. I think it melted.
(Well, except for the plastic snowflakes. THANK GOODNESS FOR THE PLASTIC SNOWFLAKES.)


Seriously, cake kit peeps, I AM DISSAPOINT. No Sven? No Elsa?!

Well, FINE, then. I guess I'll just go back to my favorite Little Pony.


Or I hear pie is nice.


Thanks to Mandy S., Ashley, & Michaela for keeping these wrecks on ice.
