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? ;)

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."



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.)
