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? ;)

Wedding Day Advice

So tell us, dear Wreckerator, what do couples need these days to ensure a happy marriage?

[nodding sagely] Yep, that oughtta do it.

Julie D., you think I could get this stitched on a pillow?

If you look in the background it looks like it is a) still at the bakery or b) in the back room of the reception place. So hopefully it was caught and fixed before too much damage was done!

Spell check would have been useless here. No, what this poor decorator needed was a second pair of eyes. Pretty cake, though.

*embarrassed chuckle* Oops...

And Juli, the Chicken Run line came to mind for me as well.

@ maya: too funny

I move that "frostian slip" become a new cake wreck category. Anyone care to second that 'motion'?

November 14, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterJedi Knight Ivyan

I bet the guests loved that - they must have been giggling like mad. Cue jokes about the wedding night!

W-O-W!! Those are good ingredients for a marriage!! I am crying I'm laughing so hard... and I may seriously stitch that into a pillow :)

November 14, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterJennie

PS- wouldn't that be better wedding night advice? Cheers! Jen

Woohoo! My Man just brought home my Cake Wrecks book!

November 14, 2009 | Unregistered Commenteraims

Wow.

It's a shame, because otherwise, it's a pretty cake!

November 14, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterKristin

I think this would be a great cake in 2 situations...
1) Only in one place on the wedding cake, in a set-up where it could be facing a wall, so really only the bride & groom would know/see it.
2) At a non-prudish wedding shower or bachelorette party.

HaHaHaHaHa

I guess this means grandkids in the mear future ;)

"... What a pity humans don't come with spell-check."

Why do people keep suggesting spell-check for cases like this, where spell-check would not help at all? "Thrust" is a perfectly good word, it just isn't the right word (... I think ... unless they meant ... well, you know).

November 14, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterGary

ROFL!! This had to be done on purpose...it's just too funny! It looks like the words were repeated as a border...I wonder if the typo (pipo?) is every time or just once "for fun"?

November 14, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

DEFINITELY one of my very, very, very favorite wrecks. I laughed out loud (and I'm more of a smiler than a laugh-out-louder.) :)

A Freudian slip is when you say one thing but you mean your mother!

November 14, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterKit Watson

The saying "the proof is in the pudding" can now be: "the truth is in the icing!" This wreck is HILARIOUS!!!!!

November 14, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterKelly

Oh my god, I can't stop laughing! It's the most hilarious thing I've seen in a while XD.

You can't deny it's a good advice, though. Where would we all be without thrust? Where indeeed.

November 14, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterIngeborg

I totally missed the "Thrust"! LOL! My brain automatically corrected it!

November 14, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Well....at least it appears to still be at the bakery.

Love the site BTW. Makes me LOL everyday. Literally!

November 14, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMichelle

*snicker* Some faith, hope, and clarity would be good, too.

November 14, 2009 | Unregistered Commentermsyendor

Oh, that is a GOOD one!!!

November 14, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Heehee! Gotta have plenty of thrust on your wedding night, right?

November 14, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterSurfie

OK when I signed in to comment, there were 69 existing comments already. HA!!

November 14, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterChristie

Omigosh! We have the cake challenge show on the Food Network on right now and it's the cake-on-fire episode! I've only ever seen the clips on here!

November 14, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterIzzy

My favorite kind of Wreck -the delayed reaction.

(Maybe it's just me, but if that had been MY wedding cake, I'd have taken it as is, just to see who was paying attention.)

November 14, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

I actually read it as "TRUST" the first time and was like "I don't get it. Why is this so funny?" and so I looked at the comments....

I guess you can see how this sort of thing can happen hehehe.

November 14, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterJess

@ 9:41 LeAnne--

I wouldn't mind having a wedding cake look like this for my wedding either. But I would mind very much if the word "thrust" appeared anywhere on it.

I'm going to have to send this to my husband...we've been married 7 months and I'm 6 1/2 months pregnant, so...

November 14, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAmi J.

Awww, it came so far but just fell flat right at the finish line to become a Wreck. It really was a pretty cake... Right up until the moment you read the writing...

*laughs*

November 14, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterSouthernSugar

At first glance I thought this was a Sunday Sweet. Oh, so close..one letter away!

November 14, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterStefRobrts

Ahahahahahahahahaha!

Whew! *wipes eyes*

Bwahahahahahahahahaha!

I can't breathe...

November 14, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMandy

Love kind of looks like Lol at first, so I thought it was done on purpose.

November 14, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Oh, jeez. What a laugh!
~Amy B-H

November 14, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAmy

The background of the photo looks like it's still in the bakery - maybe they caught it before it got out the door? Still. I would have laughed so hard if that showed up at my wedding! And gone BRIGHT red, but hey.

November 14, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMelissa

Oh God. Toooo funny! And it's actually absolutely Awesome advice, haahaa....!

November 14, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterjune2

HAHAHHAHAHHHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! I didn't read it as that the first time!! HAHAHAH! AM crying into my coffee!!!! God,,,no wonder I'm not married yet...I just didn't have the right, um, tools.

apparently.

November 14, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterpeewee

Wedding Cake + Freudian Slip = WIN!

November 14, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

I read it twice before I saw the misspelling. (beaver slap to forehead!) These wreckerators never cease to amuse me. Thanks for my Saturday giggle!

November 14, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterBrynwood Needleworks

I totally didn't see what was wrong with it at first. I thought maybe it was the "lov" at the end, but that didn't make any sense because I figured it continued around the corner. So I read it again. Then I snorted.

November 14, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterBridgete

*sings* "But it's the pelvic thruuuust that really drives you insaaaaaaaaane"

November 14, 2009 | Unregistered Commentercutthroat_bitch

ROLFMAO! I had to look twice, but it was worth the second glance!

November 14, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterPoultrygeist

my reaction to that was.. "That's so pretty, I don't understa.....OH!" LMAO

November 14, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterJane

So, were the people getting married both jet pilots or astronauts?

... or, uh, porn stars?

November 14, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterGary

*snigger*

November 14, 2009 | Unregistered Commentermjm

If that was my cake, I would have did a double take, then started laughing. I would take a typo over lopsided layers, attacking flowers and melting buttercream any day of the week. And it is a cute cake. I do hope that was caught before it got to the reception though!

November 14, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterBree

am late getting here today and hate to see that i've missed out on all the fun.

this is, by far, one of my very favorite wrecks to date!!

what. a. frickin'. HOOT!!

November 14, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterTerry Lee

That made me giggle like a 12 year-old.

November 14, 2009 | Unregistered Commentermainemom

Ahahaha-- I needed a good laugh today!

@Alicia-- Maybe this one WAS funded by NASA again; they've started to seem like a dirty-minded bunch to me!

@Untamed Shrew-- I can't believe you said that, or how hard I snorted when I read it!

November 14, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterChris

Well, clearly the baker is a Rocky Horror Picture Show fan.

It's just a jump to the left
And then a step to the right
With your hands on your hips
You bring your knees in tight
But it's the pelvic thrust that really drives you insaaaane!
Let's do the Time Warp again!

The Time Warp is indeed sage advice for any married couple. *nods vigorously*

November 14, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAmelia

At first I was confused about why this was a wreck. Then I read it again and LOLed my head off. I hope the couple was amused. If it were my wedding, once the mistake was made I don't think I'd want it corrected. Too hilarious!
