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? ;)

There's a Moral in Here Somewhere...

Attempt #1:

"This is hideous. And why is there a giant blank space?"

"That's where you put a 'Happy Birthday' candle!"

"So it'll read, 'Happy Birthday 1st Theodore?!'"

"Is that a problem?"

 

Attempt #2:

"Ok, the inscription is fixed, but where'd all the decorations go?"

"Decorations?"

 

Attempt #3:

(AKA when the manager-who-used-to-be-a-baker steps in to "fix" everything.)

"THANK YOU. Was that really so har...wait a second.

"'Theardare?'"

 

Thanks to Sam and her dad for documenting what must have been the most frustrating bakery pick-up EVER. (And for the record, they just brought the last one home. Because the third time's the charm - or when you remember little Theodore can't read yet anyway.

Wait. This Calls for CAKE.

Jill S. writes,

"This cake was just sitting out at the local [name withheld so they won't sue me], where they evidently set (celebratory? awareness? cautionary?) cakes out for (forgetful? vengeful? thankful?) shoppers to buy. Other than that, I really have no explanation for the cake. At least it was properly spelled and punctuated."

 

Now, I'm not really sure what I was expecting when I opened the attached picture...

but it wasn't this: 

 

 

Sooo...
