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? ;)

So there's a Disney cartoon about 3 kids who turn into superheroes when they put on their pajamas.
It's called PJ Masks:

See? Not making this up.

As you might imagine, this show has a lot of young fans, including 3-year-old Sunsara, who asked for a PJ Masks cake for her birthday.


MEANWHILE, on the other side of our story, there's me, working my first-ever job as a cashier/shoe department associate manager at a discount department store chain.

(I loved that job.)

(Which has nothing to do with our story; I just felt like sharing.)

Now, here's where little Sunsara and I have our backstories collide in the wreckiest of fashions:




Did you already guess?




Almost there now!



I'm torn between feeling sorry for Sunsara and laughing with delight, because dang, that's a good TJ Maxx logo. Right? It's the Obama Llama all over again! Hee!

Here's hoping Sunsara's mom took her shopping after this and they found some awesome, discounted PJs.


Thanks to Lereas for helping me re-live my days of glory in retail. And hey, everyone else, PUT AWAY THE SHOES AFTER YOU TRY THEM ON. What, were you raised in a barn filled with randomly strewn shoes? Don't you make me come over there and tidy up, because I. WILL. DO IT.

Well, the cake is beautifully decorated, everything is spelled correctly, but, oh! dear heaven. So near and yet so far.

But...there's already a kid who becomes a superhero when he puts on his PJ',s - Pajama Sam! Those were some great video games for my kids back in the day. ( Now I'm hoping there's been a Pajama Sam cake wreck.

I understand the confusion. When my granddaughter first told me about PJ Masks, I totally misunderstood her too and keep thinking it was PJ Masts and it must has been a pirate cartoon. LOL

Oh man. Maybe they could save it by scraping off the logo, and adding some plastic flotsam?

That was a surprise! I was expecting masks that looked like shoes! This was so much better! Don't ask people if they were born in a barn, they may say "yes." My daughter asked another middleschool girl, who had thrown her play dress (they were in community theater) on the floor, "Do you have a maid at home?" and the girl just looked at her and answered, "Yes." Didn't get the point at all.

That is VERY well executed! I can only imagine how awesome the PJ Masks would have been had the decorator heard the request correctly.

I had a feeling this was what it was going to be lol. The logo looks great too bad it's not even close to what was wanted. Poor kid.
