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 Easy, A Wreckerator Couldn't Do It

Don't worry, bakers; today's decorating challenge is SUPER easy. I'll even walk you through it!

Now, are you ready?

Annnnd... [starting timer]... go!


Ok, just throw the ball towards the basket:


And count to three:


Now put the candle on this kid's birthday cake:


And stack these two plastic pieces together to form a turkey:

 And for the grand finale...


 Just remember which way is up!



Congratulations!! You have officially earned the title of Wreckerator! Here's your apron, bag of plastic flotsam, and list of "50 Wrong Ways To Spell 'Congratulations.'" Now, get out there, you, and make us laugh!

Thanks to Elise H., Betsy G., Anna K., Nicole H., & Vanessa W. for lowering the bar that much further.


Pass Fail

Ok, bakers, you have one job. ONE JOB. Ready?

Here goes.

This plastic piece has football lacing on it, so -  still with me? Yes? - so just put it on a cake, like so:

...and voilà! Instant football.

Now, go find a brown cake, and put the piece of plastic on it. That's it. That's all. You literally cannot screw this up. 

Annnnnd .... go.


What are you doing.








Thanks to  Megan C., Michelle L., & Carol B. for the reminder to always keep it stupid, silly.
