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:

"STOP!
"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:

JK!!
LOL

 

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]
FROZEN!!

 

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.
