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.")

I actually mis-read "Solli" as "Soil". I guess that's appropriate though. haha ;-)

Worse than the egregious litter box cakes, which I understand are popular with some people - very young ones. But this. I can't imagine a scenario involving both this cake and psychological health.

OK, going to go think about kittens now.

Could this have anything to do with the movie "I love Beth Cooper?" I heard there was toilet humor, haven't seen it myself.

Hey Bin - I'm going with an air freshener on the back of the toilet tank. Maybe.

I'm also going with an inside family joke (as Mellodee suggests) that's relatively clean because that makes my day better.

I have never had an urge to google "toilet cake" before, but everyone saying NOT to do it sure makes me want to.

Great way to send out 2009!

Um- who gets to eat the bowl part and contents? Yikes.

December 31, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterWendyMom

Whatever has caused Daddy and Beth to bond over such an image is at best meant to be shared with their family doctor, at worst with social services, and not ever with the local baker.

Even if Daddy just graduated plumbing school, I hope he is a better man than any guy who would deserve to receive such a cake.

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

I thought so, too. Maybe he's supposed to be at the local gas station?

As a rule, I don't like any food that makes me think too much about the other end of the digestive system while I'm trying to eat it. That also includes Hot Pockets since Jim Gaffigan came along.

I understood this cake right away. Take a look at this and it explains everything:

It was the first thing I thought of when I saw it. The cake looks just like the front of the book.

I'm guessing what Beth wants for 2010 is a second toilet in the house. Or that Dad gets de-throned.

I say that the message "Daddy Love Beth" works because the whole thing seems rather primitive, except for the indoor plumbing.

December 31, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

I decided that Amy's advice to NOT google "toilet cake" was a dare, and I followed the lemmings into toilet cake hell. We are indeed a disgusting species...

Note to my friends and family: I do not wish EVER to receive a toilet cake. For any reason. (gagging...)

December 31, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterCaren

Maybe Daddy has named the toilet Beth......Daddy loves his beth....hahaha

December 31, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterKarmen M.

I immediately thought of "Family love Michael," too!

December 31, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterhj

actually my reaction was a kid giving it to his dad who was divorced from the kids mom the "love beth" referring to daddy's girlfriend

December 31, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

I must say while it is unusual; it's still kinda funny. I'm not much on 'bathroom' humour, but this is a whole new angle! I'm sure many of y'all's fathers spent time reading Uncle John's Bathroom Reader... that's what they're for!
I will say, I wouldn't choose to give this to my father...I don't think he'd see the humour in something so...graphic. =)
WV: serterdb wtf? How is that a word?

"to" is missing from the isnscription.

January 1, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterhmm

Not sure if my link will work, but check out this cake from the website/ life celebrations/ search toilet. Please note that blue jello and baby ruth were involved.

January 1, 2010 | Unregistered Commenteryou were warned

So is their relationship involved with a lot of Beth walking in on Daddy during his, ahem, reading time? he looks flushed. maybe blushing?

But yet, the inscription makes it seem like she's telling him what to do. Is Beth a new girlfriend she likes perhaps? still, toilet reference? why?

or is Beth the one on the toilet, learning how to potty train?

January 2, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

im thinkning that it is supposed to be more like "To Daddy, Love Beth"

January 2, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Did they really expect anyone to EAT this thing???

What exactly is in that magazine "Daddy" is reading?

January 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterSabrina

I, likewise, thought "Family love Michael."

January 5, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterGina

It's obviously a rebus:
#2 Daddy, love Beth.

July 24, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMarmooset

You know how some people name their cars and various other whatnots? Maybe Daddy named his toilet after someone that Daddy reeeeally doesn't like; someone by the name of Beth. Maybe the toilet is symbolic.
Yeah, I'm gonna go with symbolic 'cause it's much funnier that way.
