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? ;)

When it absolutely, positively has to be spelled out in living color:

...these wreckerators know how to deliver.

My guess is ordering a cake with "Deaonerax" on it will always be wreckworthy...

...whatever the case may be.

And something tells me this customer may have been in arrears*:

But I'm sure it all worked out in the end.

(*arrears = "behind in paying money that is owed." *snort* *snicker* *giggle*)

Hey, ever wonder what goes down at the scene of a literal LOL? Well, thanks to Mel. B., reality show "star," now we know:

Thanks to Kendra C., Dea B., and Katie M., who, of all my Wreckporters, are literally the most recent.

**Also, a big "congrateralutaions" to Dana, who we *hope* responded in the affirmative to her main squeeze Greg's oh-so decent proposal this morning. Be sure to send us pics of your wedding cake, guys! :)

Bakery Manager to 'Anus Cake' customer on phone: "I'm sorry to be a pain in the ass, but we're running a little behind today so your order won't be finished by noon. Bottom line, however, is that your cake will be ready to collect by number 2pm."

Oh, such High Class Problems... I mean really, the kid is graduating (presumably high school or college); he'll probably think the cake is funny! Yet another example of manufactured DRRRRAAAAAAMAAAAAAAAAAA on so-called "reality television".

I seriously hope the things she said were scripted; there was no reason to be so put out about a silly little cake. Tastes good? WIN!!!

How many times can I listen to the word caaaaake? I'm actually a little proud I have no idea who she is.

Ok so after tilting my head and having my co-worker throw her stapler over the cube wall at me, i think i managed to read that the cake says "Baby in the USA"?!?!?! I thought afterwards it must say "BORN" but i don't think so. Wierd...just wierd. LOVE this site.

Is it sad that I'm bothered by the fact that on the FedEx wreck, that they put a period after all of the statements except one? Consistency, people!

Hrmm that first cake I can read the word 'case' but I can't read anything else they should've done printed. Makes it easier to read.

"I've come to pick up a kehke..."

January 10, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterTJ

fNot sure if someone mentioned it, but the Happy Birthday Anus is probably Happy Birthday Amis (friends)????

I just wouldn't wish my anus much of anything, but for friends....

January 16, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous
