Birthday Cakes Gone Wild

Good Afternoon and Happy Wednesday from Sweet Tea Cooking. Today is my husband’s birthday so to celebrate Sweet Tea style I would like to present some birthday cakes gone terribly wrong…and a few that are really, really right. Next year is his 30th birthday so we’ll have to see which type of cake he receives for the big day!!

I have been pretty obsessed with the fine folks over at Cake Wrecks for some time now. I’m so obsessed that if and when it comes time for TJ and me to have a baby shower I already have the cake picked out (take note Moms!) and it has to be an exact replica of this cake no matter the actual sex of the baby that we’re having.

Whenever I’m having a crumby (see what I did there…) day all I need to do is visit Cake Wrecks and within a few minutes I’m sure to be laughing. It is equal parts good intentions gone bad, incompetent grocery store bakers, and extremely tacky tastes being showcased that really makes this website a homerun. I would check them out when you get a chance.

Have you ever ordered a grocery store cake and felt the need to go over the order slip with someone before just placing it in the mystery order box only to have the employee look at you like you’re bonkers? Well these cakes are exactly why you feel the need to do that!

Some people take those order slips very literally!

Perhaps you’ve had enough of the grocery store mess ups and you decide to bake the cake yourself this year but after planning the party, making the food, cleaning the house, you’re just over it. This is what ends up happening and you’re right back at the grocery store next year.

You can almost taste the resentment but we’ve all been there

There are some people that either have the actual talent and time or the smarts to outsource the task to a reputable baker and present their loved one with an awesome cake that fits the birthday person’s personality. This is a rare and glorious thing.

I'm just slightly obsessed with Tom Selleck so this cake would be perfect for me!

I am lucky enough to share a weekend with two amazing bros and that always equates to a super rad time. We just so happen to have been the recipient of hilarious and delicious cake.

This is a rare example of a grocery store cake getting it right. Even if they would have somehow messed it up it would have only made it better!
