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? ;)

Wedding Wrecks, Vol. 379

The wrecky forces-that-be have smiled upon us once more, dear minions.




Here's what Daisy had in mind when she ordered her mini cake and cupcake tower:


But instead...


Oooh, you guys, I feel a bucket list item coming up:

This is it! THIS IS IT.

Ahem hem hem.

Q: What's black-and-white and wrecked all over?



(Sorry, Kelly.)


And finally, behold the elegant glory of the cake Kassandra ordered for a whopping $750:

Oooh, you've got good taste, Kassandra.


...but terrible luck with bakers:



Here's how I imagine Kassandra's baker dropped off the cake:

"My work here... IS DONE."


Thanks to brides Daisy E., Kelly J., & Kassandra for reminding us wedding wreckage is serious business.

Groom-Shooting-The-Bride Wedding Cake Topper, Because LOVE

It's Love Note Day, minions, a time to jot down all your mushiest thoughts and feelings for the one you try hardest not to fart in front of. Because that's love, b*tches.

You know what's also (apparently) love? Ordering a wedding cake of the groom shooting the bride from a helicopter:

In the groom's defense, it's "only" a tranquilizer gun. Because that makes it all better, amirite, ladies?

Also I guess the groom was/is a vet tech who frequently shoots large game animals with tranquilizer darts from helicopters, and the bride was/is OK with being portrayed as a large game animal who needs to be shot with a tranquilizer dart for her wedding, SO THIS IS TOTES ROMANTIC YOU GUYS. Aw yeah, put back the flowers and stock up on the sedatives! ...only don't because now I'm creeping myself out.


Thanks to Lydia B. who joins me in remembering the good ol' days, back when grooms only shot overly metaphorical animals on their wedding cakes. [wistful sigh] Ahhh, good times. Good times.
