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? ;)

I've Got A Baaaad Feeling About This...

"I'm sorry, what did you say you wanted on your cake, again?"


"Right, but didn't you want it written a certain way?"

"Ah, that was it! Ok, nooo problem.


"Now, what kind of decorations would you like?"


"Good, good, and what kind of cake?"


"Ok, great! I've got the order all written up, so you can pick up your cake tomorrow. And don't you worry; our baker puts the rest of us to shame." [wink]



The Next Day:


Thanks to Ashley S., Daniel S., Kelsey L., Dan K., & Jake H. who could, like, LITERALLY eat an entire cake right now.

"Look, we wreckerators are tired of being the butt end of your jokes and snide remarks. This job is hard enough without you razzing us all the time. You try to make the customer always happy with some of their ridiculous requests. We get it right, and you still disparage us. Look at that first one. How do you know it wasn't for a kid whose name was "That's it"? I mean, with all the weird names children are given nowadays, how were we to know that wasn't their name? And the second cake, what are we, bakers or translators? We didn't go to ten years of baking school to learn a foreign language, you know! You think we're some kind of miracle workers who can read your mind? Look, lady, we ain't paid to be psychics. (That's psychics, not psychos. We know what you think of us!) You have a problem with the third one? Look at it again. It says "A PAW Print", and that's exactly what we did. "A PAW" was printed. The word "Print was in cursive. You got what you asked for, so why are you complaining? And that fourth one. You people always bellyache that you don't know that you got what you asked for, so we spelled it out for you right on the cake. You know what it is now. Sheesh! There's just no pleasing some people. And that last one, just in case you got the idea that it's some big Jello mold with icing around the edges, we put the word cake on the cover to put your mind at ease. And if someone gripes about the decorations, just tell them it's the "paws that refreshes". Isn't that clever of us?

I could handle the "A PAW PRint" one so much better if it didn't end in a comma. What are you hiding, cake?

These posts make me terrified to ever order a cake.

Happy Birthday in Spanish seems to be having issues. ( - don't squeeze too hard! don't squeeze too hard! Ack!)

The lettering on the “Spanish” cake really screams “I screwed this up and tried to make it look intentional.”

I am laughing so hard. I think it's just safer to make our own cakes lol.
