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? ;)

Some are easy:

Yup.

 

Others take a little more work:

No.

(Do we need to go over this again?)

 

And some are downright inscrutable:

That settles it: No more caffeine for Mary.

 

Now, this clearly says "CoNgrat's Spr 2K9 Noo of the Theta Tall of Kappa Alpha Psi To be Kontrua."

But it's all Greek to me.

(Well, half Greek. All inexplicable, half Greek.)

 

So in conclusion,

My thoughts exactly.

Oooooh...SO CLOSE

So do bakers still get points if you can at least tell what their cakes were *supposed* to say?

 

Or...not.

 

The period is how you know that new hairstyle is really working for you, Raquel. Honest.

 

Excellent advice for those pesky potty-training years.

 

Is this like an "I am legion" thing? 'Cuz if so, I'd rather you roar over there, if it's all the same to all of you.

 

And for bonus points, let's see if you can tell what these last two words were supposed to say:

Not sure? Then here's a hint: it's the same thing the last word on THIS cake was supposed to say:

But hey, who's counting?

 

 

Thanks to Shimon M., Raquel, Rebecca D., Jennifer B., Tom M., & Shane A. for the close falls.
