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? ;)

So there's that.


Now I'm getting confused.


Chusl, I don't even know anymore.


Thanks to Barbara P., Stacy N., Nicole K., Amanda D., & Amy A. for having the presents of mind to take these pictures.


And This Concludes The Festival of Slights

In the mad rush to get custom Hanukkah treats out, sometimes mistakes happen.

You might misspell something:

(Ooh! That's a new one!)


Or get a little carried away with your store's "Hanukkah House" display:


Or maybe - juuust maybe - you might put several dozen upside-down Halloween temporary tattoos on all your store's Hanukkah cupcakes, thinking they were dreidels. Or maybe Stars of David. But definitely something Jewish.

Still better than snowflakes.


My wreckporter-who-wishes-to-remain-anonymous tells me this baker had to hand-cut dozens and dozens of these, and never once noticed that they all say Happy Halloween. Or that they're big spiderwebs. With a dangling spider. That looks like this:



Thanks to Marlo D., Shoshana F., & Anony M. for an especially chappy chanukah.
