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? ;)

Picture This

Sometimes you want your cake to match your party invitations. Hey, no biggie, right? I mean, bakers do this all the time! So, just bring in the invite...

[Picture removed]

...and then watch the magic happen.

(Photo removed at the request of the baker. Please enjoy this lovely picture of Epcot)

Mmmm. Magic.

And you must admit: no body makes it better.

Or say you have a specific item you want replicated in cake.

You know, like a camcorder.

(Really?)

(Oh. Ok. Really.)

Well, no problem. They can do that, too!



That's one for the record books.

And with all the company picnics out there, you know bakers can freehand logos like nobody's business:

See? Just like nobody's business!

Or how about trying an entire building?


It's all in the airbrush.

Enough business, though. What do you say we loosen things up with something a little... sexy?


Mrow.

Uh...

Well, on the bright side, at least the baker was generous with the serving sizes!

Because anything less would have been a waist.


Thanks to Anony M., Hannah I., Emily C., Bridey, & another Anony. And hey, you know what they say! "A moment with these hips on your lips, and your hips...I mean, your LIPS...no. Wait. Look. There's an old saying in Tennessee. Or was it Taiwan? Anyway. Fool me once, shame on..uh...look, you can't get fooled again, is what I'm saying. Sooo. Yeah.

[dramatic eyebrow lift]

Strategery.

Off By a Hare

Ok, bunny cakes! This is your week to shine.

HIT IT!

Um...

Very attractive.

(Get it? 'Cuz it's shaped like a magnet? Eh? EH??)

But seriously, that's terrible.


Oh COME ON.


You're joking, right?


And this is just cheating.

Badly.

What the...?

A sunburned mouse? Really?

Look, maybe you should just go back to cheating.


'Cuz this is getting disturbing. [shudder]


Those eyes are staring into my soul.

Hold me.

C'mon, bakers, you can do better than this! Let's try for a big finish, eh? Ready? Aaaaand....

GO!

AAAAAAIIIIEEEE!!

Hey Krissy B., Kim V., Caroline C., Emily, Sarah E., Liz P., Reva P., Emily W., Mary, Danielle G., & Rachel C.: can any of you FIND meeeeee... some bunny to love?
