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? ;)

And THAT'S How Baby Zebras Are Made

It's time for another one of our chats, bakers. You know, the ones where I give well-reasoned arguments for why you shouldn't wreck things, and you completely ignore me?

You're like my cats, only armed with piping bags instead of hairballs.

No, Professor Fluffypants, no!

Still, as long as I keep lecturing Tonks and Lily on proper puke placement ("The tile! AIM FOR THE TILE!") I may as well keep tilting at this particular windmill.

 

SO... zebra stripes.

(By Sherry O)

These are zebra stripes, bakers.

 

While these:

...are sperm.

 

I point this out because a lot of you seem to confuse the two:

...and nobody wants sperm on their birthday cake, you guys.

 

NOBODY.

Nope.

 

No, thank you.

 

Nuh-uh.

 

What the...?

 

OH COME ON.
(Who let Professor Fluffypants in here?)

 

Bottom line, bakers: next time someone asks for zebra stripes, DON'T USE BUTTERCREAM.

Use an airbrush instead!

See?
MUUUUCH better.

Camouflaged E.T. Balls

Dawn ordered this Fall tree design for her wedding cake:

 

But in the end, she couldn't see the forest OR the trees:

I, for example, only see E.T. hands.

 

The cake Adriana wanted was already kinda funky:

 

...but give that photo to a wreckerator, and things get SO MUCH FUNKIER:

Balls.

 

And finally, Lindsay wanted this camouflage sheet cake:

Which leads us to a quandary:

 

Is it possible to camouflage camo?

Because I don't see it.

 

Thanks to Dawn B., Adriana S., & Lindsay M. for seeing what I did there.
