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? ;)

Our 1000th Post!

Holy Schnikes, Wreckies, can you believe this is our 1,000th Cake Wrecks post?!?

Yeah. So can I. ("Hey, John, write up another apology. This time you ticked off Weimaraner owners.")

Still, we've come a long way since that night I was bored and thought someone piping "under neat that" on a cake warranted a goofy cake blog. 'Course, at the time, I didn't think a cake could get much worse.


Yep. We've come a loooong way, baby.

We've discovered the uncharted horrors of the cupcake cake [patooie!]:

Delved into the creeptastic world of cakey cannibalism:

Learned to put numbers in their proper place:

Not to mention quotation marks!

Then there are the mounds of pastry poo, unintentionally suggestive turkeys, wedding day disasters...oh! And the hardest word in the English language to spell:

I like it.

But *most* importantly, we've learned what giant golf balls are called:

Say it with me, now:

Mission: Space!

Many thanks to wreckporters Kimberly F., Christopher T., Kathryn H., Cyndi P., Dao, Erin B., Jr M., & Kellie B., who all got that joke.

I hope.

"Congratumatations" on your 1000th Post ;)

December 17, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Wow! 1000! I'm sending you a carrot-jockey-drawn carriage shaped like "Epcot" (*smirk*) to take you on a royal ride to a beautiful "garden" of phallic-flowers and poo-lined lanes, marked with redundant and misspelled signs. It's the least I can do for you guys after all the guffaws you've elicited.
Thanks! And please don't stop now!

61th? Am I the 61th person to comment? Am I the 61th person to notice that 61th isn't a number???

Congrdu...congattu....contuta...oh stuff it, well done on your 1,000th post and thanks for always giving me something to smile about.

I leave it to those who are so much more articulate than I to express how much joy you give all of us each day! I'm so glad you decided to make your "little blog"...! Love you both!

December 17, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterPam

L'chaim to your site-it's given me many laughs. And YIKES who knew there were soo many wrecks out there

December 17, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Congtulations on your 100st post! Ok, I dont even know how to pronounce that spelling!

Oh, I just wanted to let you know too (maybe this is just on my computer) but the green color that you have made your links is IMPOSSIBLE to read with the background color...maybe just make it a lighter green

December 17, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterKellyn

I don't read you at work- I save you for the night before I go to bed. I do have weird looking dreams but I get a great laugh to chase away the workday stress.

The simple things in life are always the best- and Cak Rex, too!!

Congratulations on this your 1000th post! See I can spell it correctly too lol. Man with wrecks like these there will be many more posts to come.. yay :D

December 18, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterArlene

Congrats on a thousand. I've giggled myself through quite a few of days with y'all! I've had to wipe coffee, spit, and cake off off my screen. . .

December 18, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterpebblekeeper

That fish CCC is quite possibly the greatest cake ever. It's so earnest, yet so ... adorably bad.


December 18, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMegan


And I think that's actually THE SCARIEST pregnant belly cake you have ever shown us. It's the lopsided undies that really push it over the edge. Ye gods.

Whatever. I don't care.

December 18, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterEve

By the way, to answer a question you posted a long, long time ago, funny pictures of cakes can be seen any old time. I believe it's called Flickr.

To make it Cakewrecks, you need the witty commentary. Not to mention the inside jokes, the snarkiness, the pure geekery (is that a word?), and the audience participation. And the singing, can't forget the singing.

So, happy 1000th. You made it this far for a reason.

December 18, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Congratulations on the 1000th post; here's to many more! And as hard as I try, I just can't bring myself to spell congrats incorrectly, haha!

You and your team have brought humoUr into our lives daily. We do appreciate your "little blog" so much. Keep on doing what you love.

Congtulations on you're exiting millstone!

I haven't read all 1,000 yet, but that just gives me more to look forward to...

December 18, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterGoueznou

I sure hope Goueznou meant "exciting" and not "exiting." I just read that and went into immediate panic, shock, and grief in a matter of seconds before reassuring myself "No, no, no. It's okay. Jen and John are not exiting. They're exciting! Yes!" Right?! heh heh (nervous laugh) Right??!! (lip trembling) RIGHT????!!!!

(I'll be whimpering until I see your 1001st post.)

December 18, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterjillb-ilslp


1 "congratulations" misspelling
1 Cake Wreck reference
1 your/you're mixup
1 incorrect apostrophe placement
1 ordinal-number ending mixup
1 set of unnecessary quotation marks
And, what the heck, another CW reference


And here's the cake!

Underneat that
I calculate that your'e 2,000nd post will "be" written around late July/early August 2013. IN RED

December 18, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Congratulations! And thanks for my daily chuckle!

I'm so glad your featured charity is TWLOHA! They have helped countless people, including myself. Thank you.

December 18, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterEllie

I think the number on the side of the cake is kinda neat, personally, but wouldn't be the first time my opinion is weird. XD

Congrats on 1000!

December 18, 2010 | Unregistered Commenternetbug009

Wow!!!! 1000th posts. When I discovered your site a little over a year ago I spent every day after work reading the archives till I was up to date. I haven't missed a day since. Thank-you for your witt. wv bring: Yeah bring it on another 1000

Many Congratulations, Jen and John.
I'm proud of both of you for your hard work and sharing your humor and life.
Here's to shaking off the bad flak, and holding onto the truth!

Thank you for covering my life with frosting of fun. Not quite sure how to read your blog AND not crave cake (since my arse doesn't care how it's spelled).
