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.

7 Seriously Ugly Wedding Wrecks To Make Your Day Better

Wow, you guys really like your wedding wrecks, don't you?

And by "your" wedding wrecks, I of course mean someone ELSE'S wedding wrecks.

Because you are terrible, terrible people.

We must be related.

 

Now, remember, a wedding cake is the most important cake in a person's blah-de-blah-look at this wreck:

On the bright side, there are cupcakes.

On the top side, there's this:

I think it says "M and H."

Why did the baker use "and" instead of an ampersand?
The world... may never know.

 

Ever wonder what a cake would like like wrapped in wet tissue paper?

WONDER NO MORE.

 

This next one is Smurf-tastic:

In fact, I believe the bride's exact words were, "So help me, I'm gonna smurfin' SMURF that smurfing baker!"

 

So...

...that happened.

 

The bride asked for steampunk:

She got steamed poop.

 

Every time I see a wedding cake like this, I think the same thing:

If only that camouflage worked.

 

At least it didn't have a weedy deer skull on it, though!
AHAHAHAHAHAWAIT:

The swan pillars are a nice touch.

The intestine topping, not so much.

 

Thanks to an anonymous bride, an anonymous wedding guest, Katie F., Judy M., another Anony M., Shari A., & Ashley P. for helping me give brides-to-be everywhere nightmares. SLEEP TIGHT, LADIES.
