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? ;)

Way to "Go," Dad

There are no words....

to explain these words:


My, my. "Daddy" looks rather flushed, doesn't he?

Frankly, I'm not sure which would be more disturbing: a father giving this cake to his daughter, or someone referring to any kind of toilet activity as "daddy love." [gagging] Yeah. Ok, well, if you'll excuse me, I have to go hack up a hairball now.

Solli S., you're #1 in my book. (And #2 in "Daddy's.")

That's some ugly tile. It looks like his toilet is on graph paper.

All I can think is that it's a cake FOR Daddy, with love from Beth.

For Daddy
Love, Beth.

What is sitting on the back of the tank?

December 31, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterBin

How was this even acceptable to the baker/decorator?

December 31, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterredgirl

I have no comment....*shudders*

December 31, 2009 | Unregistered Commentersharalyns

Oh man... now I'm going to have that image stuck in my brain all day...

December 31, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterFluffy Cow

Maybe it was supposed to say "TO Daddy, Love Beth"

What a difference 2 letters can make.

If it said that, it would make lots more sense.

December 31, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterKittyKat

I...I just don't get it. What kind of message is that?!?!

wv: whijna: the sound I made when I couldn't think of a real word to describe my horror upon seeing this "cake"

December 31, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAmanda M.

I wonder if there's a chocolate kiss in the bowl...

December 31, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterViewtiful_Justin

I'm not afraid to say it...Time to call DSS. Something is NOT right! No matter the angle I try, this cake is wrong. I am not easily offended....butt...

December 31, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterReceptionist Row

Well executed AND profoundly disturbing...what can be better! Makes one think of the old adage that you can tell a great deal about a person by how they eat their chocolate Easter bunny. Make mine a piece from the....never mind, I think I'll start my New Year's resolution early.

December 31, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterDiana

Sense: This cake makes none.

December 31, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

It's all in the punctuation, or lack of it.

Daddy. Love, Beth.
Daddy Love. Beth
Daddy, Love Beth

I took it as Beth giving Daddy the cake, maybe on the anniversary of her toilet training? Anyway, ick.

December 31, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterbassgirl

It's sad, as the cake is actually fairly well done. I want to know if the decorator did just what the person asked for, or if the decorator came up with this idea. *shudder*

I'm going back to my New Year's clock cake now....

December 31, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterTrevor

Oh my word. I would love to know the story behind this cake. Even though I suspect it'd make me vomit.

December 31, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMelissa

Well, I suppose the other alternative is that it might have been intended to mean "_To_ Daddy, love Beth", which is still pretty disturbing, if that's the enduring image Beth has of her father.
Truly bizarre. Why would anyone think that was a good idea?
wv: acches- thinking about that cake gives me head acches

December 31, 2009 | Unregistered Commentercolleenoz

Maybe it's For Daddy with Love from Beth? Which is just as creepy really.

Jennie :)

December 31, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAutumn2May

umm, which part of this cake do I want to eat? NONE.

Are people having trouble with ideas for cakes?

December 31, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterEllen

Is this a REAL cake?
Is it??

Mocking

December 31, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Not to question your cake authoritative-ness but this doesn't look like a cake to me.

December 31, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterLe

I really, really, really hope there is an inside joke that we're just not getting here. Please, because I just don't think I can handle it otherwise.

December 31, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterYota Armai

It's beautifully made but I'd really like to know the story behind it because with those words it's... odd.

December 31, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterJanibach

ohmygosh. what kind of a cake is that anyways?

Wishing you Jen & JOhn the best in 2010! Thanks for the amazing (?) cake wrecky year! To many more!

December 31, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterStella

Whatever you do, don't google image search "toilet cake"....ewww....

December 31, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAmy

GROSSSSSSSS!!! Dude...who would do this? This is hella tasteless.

December 31, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMiranda

Or it could be "Daddy: Love Beth." Like, "Love Beth or she'll take a picture of you on the toilet and post it all over the Internet."

Also, confirmation word: shemixes. What are those? Remixes made by girls? Remixes of girls?

December 31, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterElena

This is so not a cake!

December 31, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

knew someone who used to make "toilet cakes" (complete with mini-tootsie rolls in the bowl and some clear yellow-ish frosting to represent, well, you know... ). why someone would do this for people, i'm not sure.. she thought they were hysterical. I can't understand the humor of this "gag" gift, quite.

December 31, 2009 | Unregistered Commentermn_me

Perhaps all that is missing is a question mark? A la "Daddy Loves Beth?" Since Daddy's affection might be in doubt upon receiving such a cake--especially if done in public.

December 31, 2009 | Unregistered Commenteremholl

creepy

December 31, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Dibs on the toilet brush!

December 31, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterDan Lewis

Several readers say:
"Maybe it's For Daddy with Love from Beth?"

Which makes more sense HOW?

This cake is actually well-executed, but why, why, why???

I just hope and pray that this cake was not made for my friend who has a daughter named Beth. Beth doesn't seem insane to me, though, so I'm guessing not.

December 31, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterGary

what the what?!?!

i can't ... i just ... don't ... whaaa?!

nothing good can come of this.

nothing.

December 31, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterTerry Lee

Does make a habit of walking in on Daddy going potty?

Or is 'Beth' the name of the toilet?!?!

December 31, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterthehorizontalyoyo

A lot of folks seem to lack a sense of irony.
Are all of you ACTUALLY shuddering, or are you just putting it in your posts for dramatic effect?

December 31, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAdam Cz

Re: toilet cakes...I suppose this is the logical next step up (or down) from the litter-box cake.

Verification word: distud. Really.

December 31, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterShanti

I'm pretty sure that Dad spends a lengthy time reading in the "library". It is probably a family joke. It is a gross family joke when it becomes a gross cake. At least it is not that graphic.

wv:"ablemati" as in "I'm able, matey, to make you a gross cake".

December 31, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

maybe "Beth" is his nickname for his toilet? Or the action he is engaged in?

December 31, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterDiana

Bakery: What would you like on the cake?
Beth: A number two. Daddy. Love, Beth.

December 31, 2009 | Unregistered Commentergesikah

Oh my. Just oh my. Please follow Amy's advice and DO NOT google. I have no words.

WV: wormo. Again ... no words ...

December 31, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterDebbi

Maybe it's Daddy Loves Bath :)

December 31, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Mmmmm, chocolatey...
Puts a whole new slant on 'urinal cake'....

yes,oh yes, my word verification is 'cakie' !!

December 31, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterCaroline B

Has this poor little girl actually SEEN her Daddy in this pose?? I am 43 & have NEVER seen my Daddy like this, I'm glad to say....nor would I even care to imagine it, let alone order a cake depicting it!! Weird is not the word....

December 31, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMozart's Girl

"disgusting." that was the word i said when i saw this wreck, wreck, wreck. nicely crafted? yes. tasteful? no. dear god, what was the customer thinking? there's no way this can come off as good or, erm, "loving."

I have to go vomit now.

December 31, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterEtiquette Bitch

I've got it! Maybe the toilet is named Beth!

December 31, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Oh come on, truthfully, aren't all daughters familiar with the concept that Daddy is in the bathroom for a VERY long time every day? I think this is in the nature of a family joke. Actually, its kind of cute. (Okay, stop screaming! You're hurting my ears!)

December 31, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMellodee

It's probably supposed to be to Daddy from Beth. But wait, that's still extremely disturbing!!

December 31, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Disgusting!!!

December 31, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterCoffee Lovers

Did - not - heed - warning - Googled "toilet cake" - never mind 2012 and the Aztec calender - this is surely THE sign of the end of western civilization as we know it 0-0

December 31, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterDiana

Yeah, I'm going to assume there is a story behind this cake. Maybe this family just has a strange sense of humor.
Actually, once I got over the shock I decided it was kind of cute.

December 31, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterHobbit

Uh, the "cake" has just stunned me, so I'm just going to wish ya'll a very Happy & Safe New Year. That's all.

Thank you for the laughs!
