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 Teacher Tearjerker

Educators of the world, get those hankies out.

Because this...[dramatic pause]...is your story.

Yes, every year you need some good "louck" as you embark upon that harrowing journey:

Back "toschol."

 

Here you will continue on for an indeterminate amount of time.

"4" more...years?
Sure, let's go with that.

 

During this time, you will expand your students' cultural horizons:

Perhaps by "celabrating" the mythical continent of "Afraicia."

 

You will "suport" your prep times:

(While grading the staff room cakes in your spare time.)

 

And, of course, you will strive to instill a love of reading into your young charges:

Not to mention their "comunity."

 

Until one day, the unthinkably terrifying will occur.

Your students will turn 18.

 

Yes, you've ushered another generation into adulthood!

"Yu dib it!!!"

 

And your reward?

(One baker, two cakes, two different mistakes.)

 

Now you can join with your students' families in saying...

"Happy Gracturations!"

 

yAEh!

 

And if you're really lucky, one day a former student just might come back to visit, bearing cake:

A cake of "apprication."

I Never Inhaled

This was ordered for a school competition called the Academic Decathlon:

Or, as Wreckerators know it, "AcPec."

Now, I'd like to say that at least they spelled "capitalize" right, buuuut...

they didn't.

*sigh*

 

The following is a dramatization. The Wreck, however, is very real.

Bakery: "Yello!"

Jenny C.: "Hi, I'd like a cake with 'Happy Birthday' on it."

Bakery: "Sure! Anything else?"

Jenny C: [shaking head] "Just 'Happy Birthday'."

Bakery: "Okey dokey!"

*sigh*

 

Two friends nicknamed Frizz and Kermit ask a baker to hold a blank cake for them while they finish their shopping. The baker agrees, and sticks a hold tag on the box.

What happened next? Only the Wrecker knows.

"On hold regularly."

Well that clears things up.

*sigh*

 

And finally, Anda ordered a couple of cakes for a birthday party. To keep it simple, she asked for the same inscription on both. Which is exactly what she got.

Yep, despite the fact that the Wreckerator wrote "bath," s/he actually did write the same thing on both.

I don't have a photo of the second cake, but Anda assures me it looked a lot like this:

Really.

And the kicker?

The store refused to fix them.

Why?

Because - waaaait for it - that's what she asked for.

Really.

All together now: *sigh*

 

Kristy M., Jenny C., Ellen K., & Anda S., this post would make a great breathing exercise. :)
