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? ;)

May the 4th Be With You...

...or at least with this cake:

"Sad of September" sends his regards.

Ask not what your country can do for you... [eyebrow waggle]


Not ok, man. Not ok.


Of course, some bakers don't need words to show their true colors:

Ah, the good ol' red, blue, white, and black.

No, wait. I can't do it. I can't just move on to the next cake. I tried - I really did - but I just can't. I'm afraid this calls for a Jen Rant. Sorry.

Here goes.

[Ahem.]

Seriously, Wreckerator? SERIOUSLY? This is what you're calling an "American flag," to be sold here IN America, and for America's birthday, no less? I mean, really? Red and BLUE stripes? Black stars? REALLY? Have you no shame? No patriotic pride? No...

Uh...wait...

Um. What is that?


Ok. Never mind. This is worse.


Now, what do you say we go out with a bang?

Theeeere it is.


Amber E., Carol S., Sarah C., Christina P., Robert I., Hillary H., & Jennifer, I don't know about you, but my confidence in these wreckerators seems to be flagging.

Royal Wrecks

 

Princess-themed balloons, tiaras, and party favors: $54.00.

 

Special appearance by I Can't Believe It's Not Disney!©'s Princess Bimberella: $134.99.

Misspelling your daughter's giant hot-pink birthday cake:

 

Priceness.


Eh, it could be worse... I guess...

 

 

Say it out loud. It's fun! "PRY-ness."

 

See?

 

(P.S. In the future, I'd like to be referred to as Priness Number 1. Spread the word.)

 

 


Because you're never too old for the "magic:"

 

I wonder if that's royal icing.

 

 


At least here they spelled "Princess" right...

 

 

...but you do have to wonder what happened to the first 10 Princesses.

 

We bow down to her royal highnesses, Rebecca B., Ciere O., Heather, and Priness Nicky. These cakes rule! (Say, is the plural for highness "highni?" 'Cuz if it's not, it should be.)
