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? ;)

Crapping Sprinkles

Those bizarre "ice cream cones" are back, and this time...

...they're crapping sprinkles.


Silly bakers, can't you see you're trying too hard? I mean, just balloons would be FINE.

I can see how I walked into that one.


Rosella's office had cupcakes for a pregnant co-worker, and call me crazy, but I *think* she's having a boy:


Ever heard the saying, "This isn't 'goodbye', it's only 'farewell'?"

Huh. Well, neither has this baker:



Sometimes, when I'm out of Whoopie Pies and everything is awful, I like to remind myself, "Hey, Jen, you know what? This is someone's wedding cake:"

And suddenly life isn't so bad.

(Well, except for the no-Whoopie-Pies thing. John, get on that, will you?)


So, Sarah L., Joann F., Rosella S., Justin C., & Danielle E., got any whoopie pies? Asking for a friend.

The frightened Zigzag Monsters are pooping rainbow polka-dots. What was going through that Wreckerator's mind?!

#1 - are those eyeball things edible? At least the mustaches have gone.
#2 - clearly what the client wanted was just balloons - NO AIRBRUSHING! They didn't get it.
#3 - I think that is meant to be a cute nappy pin (diaper in the US). Couldn't they see what it looked like?
#4 - words fail me.
#5 - I hope that picture was taken seconds before the bride rammed the cake over the decorator's head.

The "Just Balloons" cake is wrong in so many ways...
1: The balloons are flying in all different directions.
2: There is poop on the border. POOP, I TELL YOU!
3: It says "Just Balloons" on it. I don't think there's any occasion that calls for that inscription.
4: The top border doesn't match: red, poop, and ugly airbrushing.
5: Was this cake for someone who felt like eating a calico cat, or made by a baker who felt like eating a calico cat? Those were unfortunate color choices for the airbrushing on the sides.
6: The yellow balloons look like baby poop. Yay, more poop!
