OK, I have to admit something. Even with all of the serious blogs that I follow, every morning I have to see the new post at Cake Wrecks.
Whenever I feel inadequate, I just look at the parade of misspellings, ineptitude and bad communication there and I feel much better. So in loving tribute, I present a few wrecks I have found myself.
When I’m out shopping with my daughters in a store that has a bakery, they always make sure we stop by the cake display, looking for wreckery. And surprisingly often we find it! My phone’s battery is none too reliable, so I don’t always manage to get photos, but I caught a couple yesterday.
It’s the season for bad pumpkin cakes, and this one did not disappoint:
I think it’s trying to escape over the side. Are those tentacles?
And balloon cakes so often come out badly. They look like sperm, or deflated sacks, or just blobs of icing. But this is the first time I’ve seen balloons with nipples:
And my spouse caught a few photos for me last fall. These might be good enough for the real Cake Wrecks, so I sent them in. (Fingers crossed that they get used someday.)
Rah Rah Rah! Go Washington’s local NFL team! The name’s not so offensive if you spell it this way, right?
Is this the direction their season is going to go? Am I looking at this right?
And check out those yard lines – how hard is it to pipe a simple line?
And my favorite:
This just has so much going on. It’s shaped like a football, nice touch, but how old is this cake that the icing could crack open like that? And then of course the team name is misspelled twice, just in case you missed it the first time. And I think that those stripes on the end are supposed to be the team colors of burgundy and gold, but all I see is bacon. Cake with bacon.
None of these quite make me laugh as hard as Falker Satherhood, but they’re not bad considering the sample size I have to work with.
