    Default When professional cakes go horribly, hilariously wrong


    Cake Wrecks is a blog that collects examples of really bad professional cakes. Jen, who runs the blog, explains the concept as follows: "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". The site has been nominated for three Bloggies


    This was the cake that started it all off. The customer presumably said: "Write 'Best wishes Suzanne'. Underneath that: 'We will miss you'"


    Hilarity regularly ensues when the cake decorator misinterprets the customer's instructions


    Well, it's what they asked for


    The mother-to-be was having triplets, so the customer ordered a cake with "congratulations" written on it three times


    This story clearly illustrates the problem with ordering over the phone:
    [answering phone] "Cakey Cake Bakery, Jill speaking! How can I help you?"
    "Hi, I need to order a cake for my boss. We have a photo of him playing golf that we'd like to put on it, though - can you do that?"
    "Of course! Just bring the photo in on a USB drive and we'll print it out here."
    "Great, I'll bring it by this afternoon."
    Later...
    "Hey, Jill, what am I putting on this cake?"
    "Oh, check the counter; I left the jump drive out for you there."
    [calling from the back room] "Really? This is what they want on the cake?"
    "Yeah, the customer just brought it in."
    "Okey dokey!"


    Jen says: "If your message is "Philip...Woohoo!", and you actually have to say the words "dot dot dot", be prepared for just about anything"


    Marry Christnos? Same to you


    Yes, let's!


    Jen says: "I'm not really sure what the "20th" denotes: 20 years of being a "dad"? 20 "children"? Or maybe the cake is for the 20th "dad" to come along? Eh?"


    Jen writes: "Now remember, kids: crime doesn't pay"


    "We'll wish you luck, but we don't have to be happy about it," notes Jen


    Sasha probably wasn't too happy when her colleagues gave her this


    And then there are the disturbing cakes. If you received this one, you'd have nightmares for years


    Jen says: "The plastic clone babies wearing naught but mohawks are bad enough, but then they're also riding carrots. What do you do with that? It looks like some kind of perverted vegetable rodeo, or maybe a bizarre clone military exercise, what with their little plastic fists raised high in identical salutes. And what kind of occasion calls for a "naked babies riding carrots" decor, anyway? No, wait, maybe I don't want to know"


    Jen notes that the strange brown pile on top of this cake leads one to wonder just what their "specialty" is


    And finally, Jen notes, maximum irony has now been achieved. Yep, it's a Fail cake Fail. See many, many more hilarious examples at cakewrecks.blogspot.com/

    Some of the cakes on that blog are awesome too. Like these ones:

    I like that they do 'Sunday Sweets', where they show the lovely cakes...it balances out all the badness of the rest of the week!
