Cake Wrecks: When Professional Cakes Go Horribly 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”.
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.
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.”
“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.”
