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? ;)

Hey, did you know it's Nude Recreation Week?

No?

The weird thing is, neither did this baker:

o.0

 

Believe it or not, this was for Canada day last week. CANADA day.

Maybe the baker was trying to get a rise out of us?
(BWAHAHAA... ew.)

 

Presenting my new favorite graduation cake of all time:

"Feel the 'congratulations,' Kronk."
"Oh, I can feel it."

 

There are about a bazillion of us Jennifers out there, but thanks to this one's birthday cake, we ALL get a special gift:

That's right: from now on you can call me...

THE JIFFENER.

(Because choosey Jens choose "Jiff!")

 

Here comes the sun
[doo dee doo doo doo]
Here comes the sun...

QUICK IRON MAN PUNCH IT IN THE FACE

 

I've been watching the new Ninja Turtles series lately (because suck it, Game of Thrones), and guess what this reminds me of. Go on:

You see it, right? If the light reflections were eyes? Right?

 

BOOYA. (...kasha.)

Good luck eating a pink ice cream cone now without thinking, "THIS IS THE KRANG ICE CREAM OF THE PLACE WITH THE CAKES THAT POSTS THE CAKES THAT SOMETIMES LOOK LIKE KRANG ICE CREAM."

You're welcome.

 

And finally, the best part isn't the botched inscription:

The best part is this is an anniversary cake.

LOVE.
(Or... not?)

 

Thanks to Ashley T., Rebecca R., Sarah M., Jennifer D., Kate P., Anony M., & Heather B. for helping keep love alive.

Stars & Strips Forever

...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.
