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? ;)

Seven Hilariously Wrong Wedding Cake Monograms

(I'm hoping to make this a Top Ten list by the end of this wedding season. Fingers crossed!)

 

Not everyone is fully fluent in text speak and common abbreviations, so let's cut these couples a little slack, mkay?

Right after we finish laughing, I mean.

*Do Not Attempt

 

Hey, guys! You've just make the most serious vow of either of your lifetimes.
OR DID YOU?

Aw, just kidding. Really. It's no big deal.

See?

 

Wedding cupcake are the hot new(ish) trend these days. 

Want to know how to make 'em even hotter? 

Just add a little of this:

[Photo removed at baker's request. Please enjoy this lovely picture of Epcot:]

 [And imagine it's a giant pink cupcake.]

At least the center circle wasn't brown.

 (Oh, don't look at me like that; YOU WERE THINKING IT, TOO.)


Some of these could be chalked up to a simple oversight, but this? How could you NOT notice your monogram spells something?

I know it's an old joke, but...

...nope, that's pretty much it.

 

Hey, you're not superstitious, are you? Because some people might be tempted to take this as a sign:

It's all in the delivery.

 

And finally, my wedding monogram of the month:

[head in hands]

I can't decide if I'm more delighted or horrified that their accent color was blood red. I'm delorrified.
Or horrighted.

No, wait: I've had time to think about it, and I'm definitely delorrified. Mostly 'cuz that's how I'd describe Marty when he gets stranded in 1955. Right? Delorrified? Eh?

(You're welcome, BttF fans.)

 

Thanks to Amy M., Bobbi K., Deanna F., Kelly G., Maegan, Ruth H., Kimberly W. for the initial discomfort.

Spring Love is in Despair

So now that Spring is officially here, you know what's coming, right?

That's right: wedding season.

[rubbing hands together gleefully]

 

BRING ON THE WEDDING WRECKAGE!

 

Let's kick things off with a lovely Spring Fling inspiration:



...that in execution got a little, well, flung:

I like to imagine that this was delivered on the back of the baker's scooter, and that those smushed fondant butterflies on the sides were all tragic road casualties. Because, somehow, that actually makes this more excusable/believable.

 

What the baker says:

"Yes, I can do that!"

 

What the baker means

"Yes, I have some shiny ribbon!"

 

Maybe at the reception they shone a spotlight on the ribbon so the glare would blind all the onlookers. That's what I would do.

Oh, hey...maybe that was the baker's plan all along!

 

Bride: "That looks TERRI..."

Baker: [flashing ribbon]

Bride: "I CAN'T SEE! Where'd you go? Are you here? Where's the cake? Hey! WHERE'S MY PURSE?!"

[sound of running feet]

 

This next one could be a metaphor for life and love in so many ways. Not that I mean anything by that, fellas. 'Cuz I don't. So never mind. In fact, can we not talk about this anymore, please? It's just a cake, ok? SHEESH.

EXPECTATION:

REALITY:

Waw-waaaaaw.

 

Because wedding cakes are like marriages: some settling may occur.

 

Thanks to Valentina V., Michele W., & Paula B. for sharing their wedding day woes. We're here for you, ladies. Right after we finish laughing.
