There's a Cake For That: The Six Most Fail iPhone Cakes

Posted By on Mon, Oct 12, 2009 at 3:59 PM


We've noticed a disturbing trend at our local bakeries. Maybe it's because we're based in San Francisco, but "geeky cakes" seem to be on the rise, specifically ones that involve iPhones.

Major fans of Web sites like Cake Wrecks and Cake Failure; we sifted through so many awful specimens we finally amassed a sizable failed cake collection.

Word to the wise: iPhones are particularly difficult to render, especially in cake format. Here's an example of one done particularly well, from local baker Debbie Does Cakes (yeah we know).

And for those of you that live under a rock, or just use a BlackBerry, this is what an actual iPhone looks like:

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
