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? ;)

As an avid cross-stitcher, I would gladly cross-stitch that onto a pillow for you... for an autographed copy of the book. ;) LOL

The cake was beautiful... too bad it was messed up. :(

I know what piece I want. So perfect with those prim pink bows, I'm just glad this wasn't my sister's wedding cake.

*snicker snicker* My friend's MIL insisted on making the groom's cake for her wedding. It was an open book (supposed to be the Bible) and the verse inscribed on it was "And the two shall become one flesh." I think they had the thrust down-pat.

If I'd had a mouth full of water I would have done a spit take.

I hope the bride and groom cut that piece first.

Oh, Oh my God. Oh my god that's brilliant!

I didn't get why it was a wreck at first, except maybe because the "Love" on the end was cut off, and I was confused...

I just read it again.

Oh my God.

Now see... If that happened on My wedding cake, I'd be laughing my ass off...

I kind of think that qualifies as a Win...

HaHa! Took me a moment to notice that. I thought, nice and simple desi...oh...OHHHH!

November 14, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterDesert Dyeworks

Ha ha ha! My thoughts went like this 'wow. what a cute idea for a cake! Love, faith, hope, tr-- thrust?? What? ...Oh.' **Blush**

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

I second that!

SouthernSugar said Awww, it came so far but just fell flat right at the finish line to become a Wreck.

Were those puns intentional, or is it all just in my (admittedly dirty) mind?

November 15, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterjackie31337

I wonder if the bride will be wearing white? Humm?

November 15, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAmanda

@Serena PLEASE make a pillow of that!!! Oh man, that is a perfect wedding present. >:D

November 15, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterGonissa

When I first looked at this, I thought "Hey, why's Jen talking smack about this one? Maybe it's a Sunday Sweet and I missed it?"

...then I saw it. *facepalm*

Sorry, Jen. XD

November 15, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMelissa (& Billy)

something tells me the making of that cake involved "hey guys, watch this! they won't even notice!"

November 15, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAlicia


This wins.

WV: prega -- 'nuff said!

November 16, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterBri

Looks like either the bridesmaids or the best man bribed the baker.

This is just as good as the stunt where the best man 'loses' the wedding ring.

November 16, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterEvalis

Two of my very dear friends got married on the day of this post. How perfect!!!

November 16, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterJust A Girl

My first and probably only belly laugh of the day. Thank you!

November 16, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterSue Osborne

OK, so I sat here staring at the cake trying to figure out why it was a wreck. Then I took my brain off auto-pilot and actually READ the words. That is hilarious! Love. Faith. Hope. and let's not forget to THRUST!

November 16, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterJo-Momma

That last E would have fit nicely if they had left out the H!

Could have been worse

My Husband wants this on matching t-shirts.

November 26, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMjit

I seriously think that if my baker had done this by mistake and I saw it before it was corrected, I would be BEGGING my husband-to-be to let me get it (after negotiating a discount from the baker, of course). I'd even serve it at the reception.

Then again, I used to sell "marital aids" for extra money, so I think like that.

If the couple is anything like us and our friends they asked for the cake that way to see who was paying attention! And for a little bit of that hope to keep the sex life alive and happy.

December 17, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

SHUT UP!!!! That does NOT say, THRUST, does it?!! Oh my word - I can't even breathe, I'm laughing so hard!!!

:) Mags

That is too good. That is what I want on my same-sex wedding cake! It's perfect!

January 5, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterD

that is great!

January 22, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterJG

I'm not even going to tell you what I thought when I read "thrust", even though it made no sense. Seriously, it has nothing to do with thrusting. But I just can't quit thinking about it. XP
