If you want to hear about custom jobs gone bad, the internet teems with examples from nearly every industry. A perennial favorite is the website Cake Wrecks, which chronicles custom bakery orders gone hilariously awry. As for what makes the cake a wreck, according to the website curator:

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. 

Of course, most jobs that slide sideways aren't a laughing matter. 

Why Custom Jobs Go Awry

In general, whether it's cakes or metal fabrication, what causes a good job to go bad can be traced to one of three fundamental issues. First, the client might not communicate well, creating a disconnect between expectation and reality. Second, the company committing to the work might overestimate its ability to deliver. Third, a lack of experience or proper tools for the job may lead to disaster.
