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? ;)

Get Used to Disappointment

It's time once again to take all your lofty dreams of realized cake-ordering expectations... and douse them with the bitter dregs of cold, hard reality.

Oh, yeah. It's gonna be THAT good.

 

What they ordered:

 

What they got:

And here I thought all carrots grew under the ground.

Got:

A tip of the hat for an exceptionally crumby job.

Got:

Finally. A baby cake I wouldn't mind cutting.

 

Happy day at the pool:

 

Nightmare at La Brea Tar Pits:

Anyone else having flashbacks of Tasha Yar's death scene?

 

Thanks to Megan G., Candace R., Alisha T., Catie S., & Suzanne S., who all "exceed expectations." Mostly because my expectations are really, really low.

I'd ask you how you feel about this, Krystal K., but it's written all over your face.

Note from john (the hubby of Jen): A couple of years ago, Jen and I decided to take Wednesdays off. We write four new posts every week and a new Sunday Sweets and, to be honest, that's surprisingly hard to do. Add to that Epbot and emails and projects and there just aren't enough hours in the day. So, we decided that we had two options: we could either leave Wednesdays empty or we could put up a really old funny post.

We figured that since many of our readers are new and may not have read a thousand posts back, we would choose our very favorites from four or more years ago and put them up as a Wreck Replay. And that's what we do. Every Wednesday. For about two years now. I know this is dissappointing to some of you but believe it or not, we're just trying to make you smile. If it bothers you, maybe take Wednesday off. Go check out The Blogess or Awkward Family Photos. And when you come back on Thursday, we'll have a brand new post waiting for you. As always, thanks for reading and Wreck On! -john
