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? ;)

Word To Your Mathar

This Sunday is Mother's Day, and bakers are here to help us tell Mom exactly how we feel:

Only without all that namby-pamby decorative stuff.

"Flowers are a sign of weakness, kid. Now, shake your mother's hand and let's have some cake."

 

You've heard of "a rose among the thorns?" How about "a rose among the intestines?"

Wow. Thank goodness they used all that frosting to glue cupcakes down in a random worm shape instead of making a repulsive "normal" cake, eh? EH? AhahahahaaaSOB.

 

Bakers know not all of us have mothers, though. Apparently some of us have Mathers:

 

And still others, Mathars:

 

But no matter what you call her, bakers know that special lady in your life really, really likes ugly purses:

 

No, I mean REALLY ugly:

 Because ovaries.

 

So let's hear it for Mo!

Mo is #1 because Mo understands the importance of finishing what you start... unless it's time for your lunch break.

Cake Works

You guys may think writing Cake Wrecks is all fun and games, but let me tell you: Some days it's all we can do to make sense of our own keyboards!

 

When you see as many bad cakes as we do, it's easy to lose track of time.

And spacingth. And grammarth.

 

Then after we sort all the cakes, we have to write something funny-but-also-tasteful, so no one gets offended.

Boom.
Nailed it.

 

Then there's all the social media stuff!

Twitter is great, until you get the dreaded Fail Whale:

 

And don't get me STARTED on Facebook:

 

Then there's Google Plus:

[crickets chirping]

 

We're constantly upgrading our software.

 

After the Windons 8 debacle, we've done pretty well with Snow Lepard,

...although it can be a little spotty.

 

Yep, we've become Master Chiefs of Busines!

This cakey, wrecky busines.

Because you're worth it.

 

And in the end, I KNOW you're going to like this post.

Coocle Analytics tells me so.

 

Statistically speaking, the odds are pretty high I'm going to thank Sandra C., Katherine S., Kynli N., Lisa C., Suzanna H., Kate O., Chor J., Julie D., Emily D., and Tim. Because running spreadsheets is WAY easier than spreading frosting on sheet cakes.
