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? ;)

Spelling Bee Hard

Welcome, everyone, to the 2014 Bakers' Spelling Bee!

Contestants, your first word is "Congratulations."

Let's begin.

I'm sorry, but that's incorrect.


So is that.


I'm afraid I can't read that, but it's definitely still wrong.





Did you seriously just start with an E?


Corgat? CORGAT??


Look, bakers, this isn't that hard; just sound it out! C'mon, we'll do it together: "CON-graaa..."

[bonking head on podium]


Ok, bakers, to save on time let's skip right to our lightning round. First one to correctly spell "Congratulations Graduates" wins!



I give up.



And look, we're out of time anyway! Well, thanks to those of you at home for tuning in, and to all our equally inept contestants, who've managed to set a new 2014 Speiiing Bee record!

[whispering off camera] Hang on, "Speiiing Bee"? Who wrote these cue cards?


Never mind.


Thanks to Sarah B., Katy B., Darcy, Michelle P., Rachel W., Shawn M., Ken & Jen, Jeffrey M., Yvette A., Susan H., & Stacy P. for spelling that out for us.

Some of my favorite new submissions this week:


Or as we like to call her, "Tripod."

(That was the most family-friendly joke I could come up with. HI, MOM.)


If you write online a lot, then this next one is for you.

The problem with ordering via e-mail:

Now, everyone laughing, go ahead and explain it to the rest of the class.


Sarah sent in her wedding cake as a "missed mark" wreck, but to be honest, I'm a lot more interested in her choice of table decor:

Please tell me you cut the cake with the Klingon bat'leth, Sarah. PLEASE.


Giving new meaning to the name "dump truck:"

What a load of... ooh, hey, icing!


"Uh, you guys, Jimmy's cake is a little... off... don't you think?"

"Well, we weren't going to say anything, but yeah."

"Think he knows?"



Before you ask, this kid's name was Finn. FINN.

[wincing] Oooh, not good.
I'm guessing Trey snapped this pic right before the cake was hit by lightning.


And while we're talking botched names, look what the baker did to poor Tucker:

(Seriously. HOW IS THAT A 'T'?!)


Thanks to Betsy P., Cindy T., Sarah K., Jane P., Bobbie C., Trey P., & Carri C. for putting all our childhood nick names in perspective.
