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? ;)

Swing And A "Mist"

We here at Cake Wrecks know parting can be such sweet sorrow.

So here are 9 cakes to ruin the moment.

 

Oh great, here come the water works.

 

Maybe it's wissful thinking, but Luek sounds hot.

 

Be afraid. Be very afraid.

 

This wreck is evil, like the "furits" of the "Dve-il."

(Also, at first I thought that said "you will be missiled," and it was the happiest dang .85 seconds of my entire day. DOWN IN FRONT!)

 

Here's a fun party trick: read this cake out loud and you'll have an INSTANT southern accent:

Well I declare, Colonel Angus!

 

Definitely more than one "miss" in this room:

Now that's what I call "a balloon drop!"

 

I think this says, "Uoull gustly be mirrd Lt page!!"

Quick, someone look up how to say "God bless you" in Klingon.

 

"Remelering" sounds painful. Can't we just stick with one of those awkward handshake-pulling-into-a-half-hug-with-a-back-slap things?

 

And last but not least:

YOU'RE WELCOME.

Name That Wreck!

I think we can all agree that if your name is pronounced "Elizabeth" but spelled with three "I"s and a silent "Q", then you void your right to complain when a baker gets it wrong.

However, there are times when you think the baker might have stopped to question somewhere along the line:

"Jackign?" Is that supposed to be Jacking? And if so, who names their child Jacking??


Never mind.

 

I've seen "Bart" turned to "Brat," "Brian" turned to "Brain," and "Tink" turned to "Fink" - but nothing beats the nickname Chris just picked up:


Words cannot express how much I hope they served this with water.

[That's right, Chris: you just got SUNDAY SCHOOLED.]

 

Of course, Doug's new moniker is slightly less complimentary:

But I'm sure he rose to the occasion anyway.

 

I like to think this is a cake for the Riddler's quintuplets:

But that's a questionable theory.

(In reality, they asked for the name to be written in Cyrillic.)

 

Look, bakers, I know there are lots of unusual spellings and strange name choices out there these days, but just remember:

If at first you don't succeed, 

try it again in cursive directly underneath.

See? Bob's your uncles!

 

Thanks to Rae Lynn, Lizz H., Tom H., Jill C., Joel H., & Stacey T. for leaving out all the silent Qs.
