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? ;)

Parent Appreciation Day

Think you have a shot at "most embarrassing parents?"

Not anymore.

The fact that "period" is spelled wrong pales in comparison with, you know, everything else.

 

Still, it could've been worse. Lucy's parents could have put her picture on the cake:

And then served it with a side of drippy cherry cheesecake.

Really.

 

Then again, is that really any worse than a commemorative toilet training cake?

Guys, there is such a thing as a generic celebration cake, you know. Just sayin'.

 

Oh, and Mom? Dad? I love you.

 

Thanks for the perspective, Anony M., Victoria C., & Britany S. And also for the vocabulary lesson.

Sobering Celebrations

Choosing the right cake design to go with your message is key. After all, you wouldn't want anyone to get the wrong idea, now, would you?

Aw, now there's a warm welcome.

(And if you think an overly enthusiastic volunteer fire brigade might spell disaster, you're wrong. It spells "neiborhood.")

 

Baptism, baseball...they both involve dunking, right?

[UPDATE: I have just been informed that baseball does not, in fact, have dunking. Apparently that's hockey. My bad.]

 

Ah, Niko. That boy is creeping up on death like a herd of geriatric turtles. Why, it seems like only yesterday you were playing with Thomas the Tank Engine, huh, Niko? Maybe because it WAS only yesterday, but still.

(No, the 5 is not a typo; this really was for a fifth birthday party.)

 

Whoops, Karen T., Karen G., & Tammy C., apparently geriatric turtles come in flocks.
