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? ;)

The Dora Dilemma

"Hi, I'd like to order this Dora cake, please."

"No problem!"

[a few minutes later]

"Here you go: one Dora cake!"

"Um, that's not really the same... and where are the toys?"

"What toys?"

"The toys that come with the Dora cake!"

"Oh, THOSE toys. Haha! I thought you were making a pun. I don't have those toys."

"Well, which toys do you have?"

"Er...Let's see...I have the ones for this cake:"

"Ok, that's fine. Just make me one of those, then."

"Okey dokey!"



"Here you go! As you can see, I included the toys!"

"But, that looks nothing like the picture! Look, I don't mean to complain, but all these delays are really putting me behind schedule, and the party is in an hour, and I have so much to do, and I just can't seem to get ahead!" [sob]


"Say no more, my good man! I will take care of everything.


"Here we go! See? I told you I'd take care of it!"

"Why? What's in the box?"


[sniffle] "Fine. I'll take it."
