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? ;)

The World's Most Unfortunate Wedding Monogram 

Some couples look for a sign that their marriage will last.


 This isn't it.

Thanks to Ruth H. for the initial discomfort.


Note from john: For those you you who may not know, usually "DOA" stands for "Dead On Arrival."  Less common meanings are "Dead Or Alive", "Date Of Arrest" and the ever-popular, "Darkener Of Apricot."




It took me forever to realize this wedding cake was supposed to have a Simpsons theme:
Mmmmm. Paaaaaper.

And yes, you read that right: this was a WEDDING CAKE.

I especially like the way the sides transition seamlessly from edible paper to airbrushed fondant:


Oh, and Bart's chalkboard reads, "I will not lick the wedding cake."


I guess there wasn't room for "...not if you paid me a million dollars."

Posted by a justifiably irate bride here, and spotted by Meredith, who thinks we should RELEASE THE HOUNDS!!


New site update from john:  From about 6:30 to 7:00 tonight, we were trying to speed up the website a bit.  This ended up making everything wonky.  Sorry about that.  It's back to normal.  Isn't this fun?  [banging head against wall]
