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? ;)

Comb The Dessert!

Like so many brides, Robyn M. found the perfect cake for her wedding on Pinterest:

Now, let's be real, Robyn. That cake? THAT cake? There are like 4 bakers on the planet who can make that cake, with all its tiny, perfectly-pleated ruffles and its flawless ombré fade. Ok? Ok.

Anyway, I'm guessing Robyin already figured that out, because...

SHAPLOWM!!!!

Whoop.
DARE 'TIS.

(It's like a cheap lingerie shop exploded on it. Can't you almost feel the scratchy nylon? Mmmm.)

 

Ug, you know what? I can't even with this today. So...

 

Ugly:

 

Ugly:

 

REALLY ugly:

 

We've gone from suck to blow!

 Which means it's ugly.

 

Aaaaand... ugly:

DONE!

You may now eat the cake.

Or... not.

 

Thanks to Robyn M., Mallory M., Angela B., Anna W., Anony M., & Richard B. for combing the dessert. (Eh? EH?!) Now... check, please.

Wedding Wrecks, Fangirl Edition

Imani wanted this cake for her wedding, only with bright lime green flowers instead of pink:

 

She got this:

 

Yeeeah.

 

And Meredith asked for this design with little pumpkins instead of apples:

 

... but she got this:

 

Preach.

 

And finally, as a baker herself, Zoey decided to keep her wedding cake design SUPER simple to avoid potential wreckage:

No piping required! Just plain frosted tiers and colored sugar crystals!

 

Say it with me, now:

What could possibly go wrong?

 

Oooh, Sherlock, you so bad.

 

Thanks to Imani R., Meredith R., & Zoey K., who want to know if I seriously just turned this post into a SuperWhoLock love fest. And the answer is yes, YES I DID.
