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? ;)

Look Out, Germany

I don't mean to brag, but I'm pretty much an expert on the German language. Yep. Two point five years of public high school German right heeere, playah! In fact, I would be saying all this "auf Deutsch," but I don't want to dazzle y'all with my linguistic...um...awesomeness.

Anyway, I mention this because today's Wreck is so hilariously horrendous that I may have to lapse into German to adequately describe it.

Ready?

Here goes:

 

Gross unpassend fliegend Fekalie-Kuchen!

Taschenrechner!!
Wo IST die Toiletin? Fahrvergnügen?
Ich bin ein Berliner!
Schnell! Schnell!

 

Ahem. Well, I think that gets the point across.

It should be noted that the cake was supposed to read, "Germany, HERE we come!" (Ah, those pesky, hilarity-inducing homonyms.)

Whether the cake was supposed to look like a baked poo souffle with a side of #2 nuggets, however, is anyone's guess. (Although I'm guessing "no.")

 

Hey, Sarah R., keep it down, will ya?

Super Bowel To The Rescue!

Sports fans, are you worried you've picked a crappy caterer for the big game this weekend?

THERE'S YOUR SIGN.

 

'Course everyone knows Super Bowl parties are mostly about the food, so I guess it makes sense to have two pools of milk battling it out with colorful spatulas:

(No lie, it took me a solid ten seconds to realize that's NOT what this is.)

 

I'm still having trouble with team names, so somebody remind me:

Who is Sea Hawles, and why did Pac-Man have to die for him?

 

I do remember the Colts, though, because there's a young boy named Jack who is a huge Colts fan.

Unfortunately for Jack, though, if you write "Colts" a bit sloppily on the order form it can end up looking like a much different word:

Mee-YOWCH.

 

It's a shame Jack couldn't switch with 6-year-old Reagan, who just wanted a pretty horse and flowers on HER cake:

On the plus side, Mom and Dad, I don't think Reagan wants a pony anymore.

 

Best of luck to both teams this weekend, and remember: Whatever happens, we can all take comfort in knowing there's only one real loser:

(I need to find the baker who did this, and shake her hand.)

 

 

Thanks to Sharyn H., Tara M., Kristy F., Sarah B., Jennifer F., & April M. for bringing her best game face.
