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? ;)

Maximum Irony Has Now Been Achieved


Yep, it's a Fail Cake Fail.

Jen G., I used to think the shorter the word, the harder it was to screw up. Thanks for ruining another one of my theories.

Fire!

Believe it or not, this cake is supposed to look like this:

Well, sort of, anyway.

That deer is staring straight into my soul, and it's totally creeping me out. The smoke column on the side is kind of odd, too, although I like the idea of using sprinkles for ash.

And what could be better than a cake with a demonic deer staring out from the fiery depths? How about one that was sold in California when all the wild fires were raging? Yep. Niiice.

Or, to Wreck it up further, you could always have a dial-a-wreck inscription on it:

That's supposed to say, "Happy Birthday you old bastard". So obviously the wonky heart was the decorator's idea. "Let's see, demonic deer, unintelligible greeting, hmm...it still needs something...."

Oh, wait, that smoke column was supposed to be a tree? Huh. Well, I guess if all the leaves were burned off...

Jenna Z. and Rya M., these cakes are smokin'.
