When cakes go wrong

Posted August 4, 2008

Here is Cake Wrecks, a wonderful site, which collects professional cake disasters.

From questionable design ideas to hilarious spelling errors, the site is full of good laughs.  I'd give it a PG-13 rating for a few of the entries, but it has nothing that should offend you very deeply.

After scanning through the site, here is my best advice if you're going to the bakery to order a special cake:  Make sure the decorator can spell.

    That was so hilarious I had to share it with several friends at the office! I'm planning my wedding and have been very discouraged with cake prices & designs I've seen - nothing, however, NOTHING rivals these cakes! LOL

    I have a photo of a cake that has been passed around at my office that is not in your blog.

    It is a large sheet cake, and it says, quote:

    Best Wishes Suzanne
    Under Neat That
    We Will Miss You

    I loved that Far Side cartoon. Actually had it pasted to the side of my fridge for the longest time!

    This is really cute. Some of them are strange to say the least!!

    when reading the headline I was reminded of the old Far Side cartoon "when potato salad goes bad" ... with the bowl of potato salad in the fridge holding a gun on the other fridge contents. The actual blog is not disappointing in that respect.
