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: Just Leave It

It's the latest budget-friendly sensation sweeping the nation - or at least a couple of weddings:

Leaves and twigs!

Not only are they "beautiful," they're a great way to upcycle those lawn clippings!

 

Just grab a leaf blower, and bam!

The cake's decorated!

 

Drape them for a drapey effect!

 

Or just jam them all over!

Leaves and twigs!

CONSIDER IT.

 

And hey, if that doesn't work: TINY PLASTIC SHARKS.

Bam!

 

Thanks to Ann C., Adrienne H., Kim W., & Jen A. for the most baffling double-sided wedding wreck I've seen in at least a few weeks.

Flower Power

When it comes to wedding cakes, there's a right amount of flowers...

[Note: this is not the right amount]

 

...and a WRONG amount of flowers:

If you listen verrry closely, you can actually hear the cake screaming.

 

Bakers know a hefty blanket of fake blooms can cover a multitude of cakey sins:

...including the fact that the groom forgot to pick up the cake.

[Fun fact: this was actually the mother-of-the-bride's hat.]

 

However, at some point the flowers and flotsam cross over from "charming camouflage" into "DEAR GOD, WHAT IS THAT THING?"

When bakers play "To The Pain."

 

Many bakers use silk flowers to avoid the problem of brown droopy blooms on their cakes:

Others use silk flowers to ensure it.

{I'm almost afraid to ask, but why do they even make roses in those colors?}

 

Just remember: sometimes, for some cakes, there simply aren't enough flowers in the world:

In these instances, I advise a large shrubbery.

And maybe a few more of those Keystone Lights.

 

Thanks to Roger G., Alison V., Jen, Anony M., Stacey H., & Michelle C. for making all the two-year-old flower girls out there look extra talented today.
