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? ;)

Droning It In

Ever wish that a fully decorated cake would just fall into your lap? Well now, thanks to unmanned drone technology, IT CAN.

That's right, a bakery in Shanghai, China recently began using drones to deliver their cakes. DRONES, you guys. Flying drones.

This may be the most brilliant creation ever invented, my friends. In fact, I'm suddenly feeling a lot less bitter about my lack of hoverboards and self-lacing sneakers. Flying robots delivering cake? Never mind, future: I'M GOOD.

Plus, drone-dropped cakes are great for so many occasions! You know, like:

New Years:

Mother's Day:


... and baby showers!

Even small orders will get that special "droned in" touch:

Oh, and can't forget The Big Day!


Not to worry; I'm sure that'll spring right back...

 Yes, my friends, the future is finally here, and the future is good. A little smooshed, sure, but good - and I, for one...

What's that, you say? 

China has GROUNDED the cake drones? Because the cakes might fall on someone or whatever?

Ok, I take it back.

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!
