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? ;)

Double Your Photos, Double Your "Fun"

Photo-cakes already enter the arena of good taste with a severe handicap, since they tend to look a bit funereal (I've had a "Funeral Wrecks" post on hold for months now, because so many of them ARE photo cakes - kid you not.), so it certainly doesn't help when the wreckerator goes and does something like this:

That's the SAME photo, used twice. I guess whoever ordered this gave the bakery two to choose from, so they chose...both. Aside from (hopefully) being blindfolded while arranging the photos, the wreckerator also misspelled Bubie and Birthday (if you consider failing to cross the 't' a misspelling, that is.) S/he also couldn't even outline the photos right, but I guess we can chalk that up to the blindfold.

Nice wreckporting, Z.

My Sweet What is What?
