Funniest Food Web Site Ever

September 10th, 2008 · 3 Comments

I’m a sucker for Ace of Cakes — that TV show about cake decorating set in Baltimore. It’s because I dream of decorating cakes like that a lot, and have done a fair share of weird and fun cakes. They’re very tough to execute, make no mistake.
But every baker has a bad day. Some bakers have nothing BUT bad days — and greatly misrepresent their skills.

Take a look at this web site, called CakeWrecks — full of pro Cakes That Went Horribly Wrong.

Here’s my favorite, the one that kicked it off. Directions to the baker:

Write on it: “Best Wishes Suzanne” and underneath that, “We Will Miss You.”

Cakewrecks.com 1st cake

Cakewrecks.com 1st cake

 And so it was. Sorta.

Scroll down after each cake to read the comments — often more hilarious than the cakes. Also check out this one, the nude babies on a carrot cake. What were they thinking??!!

Thanks to Maureen Clancy for turning me on to this site. Mo is my West Coast Best Bud in my circle of ex-food editors. She’s from Boston, but held down the food fort in San Diego. Her food blog is terrific! Check it out!

    oh my gosh, this site is a riot! the ‘baby’ cake was impressive in terms of the design and coloring but rather freaky! yikes, not sure I could eat a piece of that cake.

    Thank you for letting us know about this crazy website! My favorite so far is the “Brides with no money or taste”
