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? ;)

Stick A Pick In It

"... and to avoid any possible mistakes, instead of any writing on the cake I'd like you to just use one of those plastic 'Happy Birthday' picks, please."

 

"No, no, I don't want you to write it, I want you to use one. You know, the 'Happy Birthday' sticks? Yes. One of those."

 

"Maybe I'm using the wrong word. Um... do you have a decorative plaque you put on cakes? One that says 'Happy Birthday'? Because that's all I want. Really. Just that!"

[massaging temples]

 

"See, now you just wrote 'pick' again."

 

"Aha! Well, you DID use some birthday plaques this time. But see, that's all I want! No writing, just one plain 'Happy Birthday' plaque."

 

"I feel like we're going in circles here.

 

"Tell you what, forget the sticks, picks, and plaques, k? Go ahead and write happy birthday. JUST HAPPY BIRTHDAY. That's it. Got it?"

Friday Favs 9/5/14

Some of my favorite submissions this week:

 

I'm gonna go out on a limb here and guess the bakery had room:

 

If you love communication breakdowns on cakes as much as I do, then prepare for an eye-full:

Give it a second.

Theeeere it is.

 

Before I show you Sara's cake, here's her explanation over on Twitter:

So just to be clear, this was supposed to say, "Happy Birthday Julie & Wes."

o.0

 

And finally, Alesha asked her baker to draw a high heel on her cake - so, something kind of like this:

 

Instead, she got this:

Of course, we have to take Alesha's word on the high heel thing; I still say that's a feminine travel urinal.

(Seriously, google "feminine travel urinal" and tell me I'm wrong. And stop looking at me like that. LOTS of people know what feminine travel urinals look like, Ok? LOTS OF THEM.)

 

Thanks to Emma Cal, Brianna T., Sara, & Alesha G. for being my #1 fans.
