I found this thread on DIGG, took me right to the cakewrecks blog which contains the site where the original story is from.

Can you believe this kind of thing?
who ordered a wedding cake from these people?
don't people ask for portfolio or something like that?
To me this is unbelievable, what do you think happened????

That story has been making the internet rounds for at least 10 years! I know that Snopes did a thing on this cake thing a couple of years ago, and ascertained that while they couldn't prove the story was false, they couldn't prove it was true, either.

No one has ever come forward to claim this 'story' as theirs.

true or not, at least it wasn't a tattoo.

Am I the only one who notices the inconsistencies on that cake? Take a look at the white part - it's smooth. And the shell border, although simple, is well executed.

That is in complete contrast to the haphazard red, green and yellow. It looks like a regular white cake was attacked by an 8 year old with a pastry bag and a dream! icon_lol.gif

I would love to know the real story behind that trainwreck because it looks 'altered' to me. Either they ordered a normal cake and wonked it out as a joke or let the kids have a go at it....because there is no way the same person who baked, assembled and decorated the white part also did the color part, unless it was done on purpose. JMHO, of course!

I agree cakediva, the cake itself looks like it was nice but not supported, and then they just squirted color all over it... maybe a hoax?

If you read down into the comments, the bride herself responds. icon_smile.gif Name of the baker and everything, LOL.

Thank you so much for reminding me about this website!! I hadn't checked it in a couple of weeks, and she uploaded quite a few more cake wrecks.

Oh Lord, I inhaled a grilled onion into my lung when I laughed at the sexual harassment cake. That was fricking hilarious!!

Lesson learned: don't laugh your arse off when you have a mouthful of food.

Wow, I did scroll down and read the comment from the bride. This is insane! Really unbelievable. I may not be perfect, but I would NEVER deliver this! If it turned out ANYWHERE near this disastrous, I'd go to walmart and bring them a cake, and I'd be embarassed beyond belief and return their money no questions asked.

your wedding day is supposed to be the best day of your life, gorgeous dress, dream husband, beautiful reception etc.......BUT suing for emotional distress because your cake collapsed is a bit ridiculous.

I think she is entitiled to a 100% refund and aslo a little extra for her cake being a complete wreck but emotional distress???

Judge Judy would let her know what time it was! lol

I remember seeing this one before. That's exactly how the cake was delivered. What a lazy decorator she was! That poor bride!

What a shame! On the other hand, I'm cracking up looking at the other disasters she has posted. Look at the firefighter cake!

The emotional distress wouldn't be so much over the cake as over the fact that it had to go to court to get a refund for the pile of crap, I'd think. Besides, she said she got the cost of the cake back but nothing for emotional distress.

Srsly, the lawyer probably told her to tack that on to see what they could get. The cost of the lawyer was probably more than the cost of the cake, after all!

I love cakewrecks!

I've seen quite a few of those pregnant bellies on CC!! I'm glad I'm not the only one that thinks they are tacky.

The bride cake is crazy tacky, but kudos to the artist who had to replicate that in cake!

I'm not a fan of the Belly Cakes either. Blah!
Plus I don't like the idea of cutting the belly to serve it.

It does seem kind of canabalistic, huh? I LOVE the belly casts that I have seen people do and I think a lot of the cake designs would look amazing on the "outside" of the cast. I think the person who originated the cake was thinking the same thing but in cake which sounds good in theory-- reality, not so much. icon_confused.gif

I had a belly cast done by an artist friend of mine. She painted it with dragonflies to match the twins nursery. It's very cool - and a physical reminder of just how far one's body can stretch to accomodate 2 seven pound babies!

See, now that is very cool. I wish I had done one with each of my kids. 14 pounds of baby, Whoa! I thought I was maxed with an 11 lb 5 oz boy-- icon_eek.gif .

I didn't realise the stress was caused due to not getting a refund, my bad icon_redface.gif
