What's a Wreck?

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. Anyone who has ever smeared frosting on a baked good has made a Wreck at one time or another, so I'm not here to vilify decorators: Cake Wrecks is just about finding the funny in unexpected, sugar-filled places.

Now, don't you have a photo you want to send me? ;)

The Trouble With Scribbles

Cakes, the final affront here.

These are the continuing ravages of the Bakeshop Wrecksurprise.

Cakeman's Log: The shop is back to normal now, after a mysterious ailment afflicted my crew.

It started when we were accidentally exposed to corigrAtUIAt ions.

Maybe the big sign should have tipped us off.


Anyway, we didn't realize the danger until our handwriting started to devolve.

I mean, what do you call this?!

"It's red, Tim."

"That was a rhetorical question, Leonard."

"Oh. Sorry, boss."


I thought the crew just needed time to warm up, but the more cake I gave them, the more the handwriting problem seemed to multiply.


Spatial skills also began to deteriorate:


Pretty soon, this was the best we could do:

(Tilting your head doesn't help. I tried.)


Suddenly, I remembered the corigrAtUIAt ions!

It. Was right. THERE. In. Front of our. EYES!


I ordered the crew to our decontamination facilities.

The loy quickly neutralized all the corigrAtUIAt - and even better, gave me an excuse to rip off my uniform.

(Hellooooo, ladies!)


The crisis averted, I'm happy to report the crew is back to our normal standards.

"How's this, Boss?"

"Perfect. And I LOVE your new red shirt."

Is That A Baby In Your Pants Or Are You Just Happy To See Me?

Kids today, with all their weird hobbies:

(PS - Oh! Hey! Think this is Isabella?)


Ariel's company wanted their vision statement written on a cake, but made the rookie mistake of e-mailing a cellphone photo of their office wall plaque as a reference. [shaking head] Tsk tsk, guys.

The result was predictable, but their vision statement makes it delightfully ironic:

Now if only we could empower technology to transform wreckerators.


One question, oh-so-many answers:

Let's... START... withhow... MUCH... I hear William Shatner... RIGHTNOW.


And finally, that awkward moment when you can't tell if the cake is for a baby shower or a bachelorette party:

For the record: I still don't know.


Thanks to Claudia R., Ariel D., Aubrae W., & Amanda F., who aren't happy to see me, but DO have bowling balls in their pants.
