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? ;)

The Letter Of The Flaw

This redditor discovered there's more than one way to interpret "sprinkles on the side."

Ha!

(One of the few times when the wrecked version actually required more effort.)

 

Dae's local bakery offers number-shaped donuts for birthdays, so she ordered "20 number 6 donuts with pink icing and sprinkles."

Oooh. SO CLOSE.

 

Cory S. asked for a cake that was half white, half chocolate, but made the mistake of not specifying WHICH half: 

 Er...

 

I feel ya, Jean-Luc.


And finally, Lindsay A. was very clear when she ordered these two cookies cakes: "Happy Birthday Jessica" on one, and on the other, "Happy Birthday Alan."

(I'll spare you the headache: they both read "Happy Birthday Jessica and the other Alan.")

Annnnd....

 DOUBLE FACEPALM!

 

Thanks to Libby, Dae S., Cory S., & Lindsay A., who I'm sure can't stop staring at the wonky Picard arm, either. Right? Please tell me I'm not the only one.

Get Used To (More) Disappointment

What's that? You want more "Missed Marks" wrecks?

AS YOU WISH.

 

First up, Randee C. ordered this simple zebra-stripe cake from her local bakery:

 

... and ended up with something only a finger-painting preschooler could love:

Zebras of unusual stripes?
I don't think they exist.


Next, Tahneea made two notable discoveries: first, this gorgeous cake:

There's a shortage of perfect ruffles in the world. 'Twould be a pity to damage yours.

 

And second, a use for leftover coffee filters!

 

"I do not mean to pry, but you don't by any chance happen to have six hundred coffee filters on hand?"

"Do you always begin conversations this way?"

"YUP." 

 

And finally, Mel D. ordered this beauty for her wedding:

She tells me her baker showed her an impressive portfolio of gorgeous cakes, which made the final reveal on her big day that much more, well, you know ...

INCONCEIVABLE.

 

And ... EMBIGGIFY!

On the plus side, that silver glitter really clumps together nicely.

 

Bye bye, brides! Have fun ordering your cakes!

("Think they'll be wrecks?"

"If not, it'll be a miracle.") 

 

BYEEE!
