Piece of Cake

posted by on July 25 at 11:00 AM


Bookshelves of Doom links to this amazing blog. Cake Wrecks documents cakes that are (intentionally or not) hilarious.

Besides the above nightmarescape, there’s this well advertised but poorly designed professional wedding cake, this awesome James Bond-themed cake, and this amazing naked-lady-delivering-a-baby cake. The entire blog is awe-inspiring.

Mmm, carrot cake. Hold the babies, please.

Awesome blog. For some reason it was the "It a gril" cake that really made me lose it.

Love the story with the locally produced Fireman With His "Hose" cake...

Great blog. I was laughing my ass off.

And if I ever get married I'm getting that Bond cake!

Times have changed. 20+ years ago we wanted to have a surprise wedding shower for a colleague, so billed it as a baby shower for my wife (and our soon to be daughter).

Another colleague went along to Remo Borrachini's to order a simple sheet cake with the slogan:

"Happy Wedding, Happy Baby"

and THEY REFUSED to do so.

I have rarely laughed so hard at anything on the internet. Thanks!

As someone who enjoys cake decorating, I really have to wonder what some of these people were thinking when they ordered their cakes. I mean, did they not ask to see a sample of the decorator's work first? Did they not get any kind of preview of the horror that was to come? Or did they all just pay their great aunt Stella 20 bucks to slap some pre-made synthet-o frosting on a Betty Crocker because they were too cheap or too dumb to seek out an actual bakery with actual trained professionals?

Maybe they were victims of a disgruntled bakery employee? Who knows

Thank you! That blog was the best part of my week! Or should I say best part of my "week!"

Archee McPhee caters? Sweet!

@4 - CNN had this cake in all of it's egomaniacal glory, complete with backstory on the front page in the days following the wedding...the bride said it had always been her dream to have a doll fashioned to look like her, so while making wedding plans, her future husband decided he'd do the next best thing...

Somehow I can't imagine that's how it went down though...

Wow, that blog made me laugh til I cried!

These are what I'd expect if Amy Sedaris made cakes.

"Daddy, Come Home."

thank you, Stranger, for showing me a hilarious way to waste another hour.

then I scroll down and see the words "a paean of praise to the fortitude and moral courage that has been shown by George W. Bush." Put that on a frilly orange and purple cake, please.
