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? ;)

"Words" Cannot Express How Funny This Is

Tiffany C. writes,

"Our school ordered this for our staff end-of-year party. [...] She told them she wanted words on the cake, and then gave a few examples."

Aaaaand... they got this:

That's supposed to be "Dream" on the lower left, of course, but I bet all you teachers could use a dram or two about now. Why is it blank in the middle? And why is "Do" the only word not in quotes? Hmm, let's "think."

 

Thanks to Tiffany for the words to giggle by.

10 Painfully Punny Wrecks For Dad's Day

Now, you guys KNOW I love puns (truth!), but around Father's Day bakers start cranking out a veritable plethora of pastry puns sure to make even the toughest dad cry, "What's THAT supposed to mean?"

It starts out cute:

"Reel great!" With a fish! Haha!

 

Then it gets awkward:

"Yep, mom's one lucky lady to land you, IF you know whadda... ok now I'm grossing myself out."

 

Then confusing/borderline insulting?

Not sure calling Dad "a hole" in ANY context is good.

 

But then it just gets desperate:

"Not to bee that guy, but this cake gives me hives."

 

"Because sometimes we take you for granite!"

[head tilt]

"Or for cow spots."

Moo-ving on...

 

Then there are all the missed opportunities. I mean, c'mon, bakers:

Why doesn't this say, "Let's get hammered!!" WHY?!

 

Fun Fact: Have you noticed puns make bakers - yes, all of them! - forget how to spell "you're?"

Now, can I borrow twenty bucks?

 

...by which I mean you are SUCH a drag.

 

Maybe if you spin around long enough it'll look like a top.

 

There are two ways this next pun could have worked. Thankfully, the baker missed both of them:

There are FOUR. DADS!

(You're welcome, TNG fans.)

 

And last but not least, my favorite bad pun of all:

If your mind immediately went to a disturbingly gory place with this cake, then congratulations. WE CAN BE FRIENDS.

Yep, not only would I buy this cake, I would pay extra for a few red gel splatters on the cake board.
(Uh, because I get my warped sense of humor from my dad, not because I want to saw him up. Honest. HI, DAD.)

 

Thanks to Aneela Q., Christopher W., Nicole J., Elisabeth K., Ashley B., Jen W., Brooke D., Megan Z., Elena E., Tracy M., & Cindy K. for sawing what I did there.
