Look, spelling can be tricky. All those "words" with their pesky "letters" that have to go in a specific "order" to make some sort of "sense?" It's hard. So, we try not to judge too harshly when a decorator makes a minor mistake.
In the baker's defense, how often do you use the word "happy" on a cake, anyway?
And abbreviations can sure be problematic:
Then again, how else would we know a cookie can be ready in five mountains?
And when there are multiple words on a cake, it really makes spelling those simple words that much harder!
Baker: "Whoa! Slow down there, buddy! What do I look like, a word processor?"
And don't get us started on "Huked on Phonics":
I'm guessing they saw "in Mississippi" on the order form and gave up.
Besides, when frustration levels are high it's just human nature to invent new words and letters:
You know, like "Aur" or a dotted "u." You barely have a prayer of getting those right.
And sometimes you need to take a lot of little breaks:
[shrug] Ah, well. "Better luck" next time, Lindsay!
Thanks Terry P., Stefani C., Cindy G., Tyler H., Christine M., & Lindsay W., although after these wrecks I think I need to sit a spell.
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? ;)
We don’t have any copies of Cake Wrecks for sale here, autographed or otherwise. We decided the shipping and handling costs would be too high to make it worth your while. So instead, buy your copies locally or online and then order personalized bookplates: it’s cheaper, easier, and I think even looks a bit nicer.
Payments must be made through Paypal, which accepts all major credit cards. Sorry, but that means no checks or MOs or barter-based chickens.
