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? ;)

Aaaand...HEADDESK!

Your spelling's not! Thanks!

(Bonus: Read that line out loud, and every preschooler within earshot will love you.)


STOP.
It's time to get the hammer.

Roo Hoo? Dangit, now I want a Yoo Hoo.
Do they even still make those?


Basketball fans, the ball's in your court.

So remember: it's "i" before "e" except when you're trying to draw a friggin' peace sign.


Which, incidentally, is supposed to look like this:

Get Used to Disappointment

It's time once again to take all your lofty dreams of realized cake-ordering expectations... and douse them with the bitter dregs of cold, hard reality.

Oh, yeah. It's gonna be THAT good.

 

 

What they ordered:


 

 

What they got:

 

And here I thought all carrots grew under the ground.

 

 

Ordered:
Got:

 

A tip of the hat for an exceptionally crumby job.

Ordered:


Got:

Finally. A baby cake I wouldn't mind cutting.


Happy day at the pool:

Nightmare at La Brea Tar Pits:

Anyone else having flashbacks of Tasha Yar's death scene?

 

 

 

Thanks to Megan G., Candace R., Alisha T., Catie S., & Suzanne S., who all "exceed expectations." Mostly because my expectations are really, really low.
