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? ;)

Hey there, teachers! This week is for you! So, in honor of Teacher Appreciation Week, we'd like to say thanks to all teachers, past and present, the only way we know how:

With embarrassingly ironic school cakes.
It's the least we can do for you, teachers. After all, you've taught us so many invaluable lessons.



Like punctuation...
Read this out loud. You'll sound like "William," "Shatner."

...basic math...
I'm guessing the flux capacitor costs extra.
...and creative writing!
This is why you don't submit cake orders via Twitter.
Yes, teachers, if you hadn't taught us these basic skills, we might end up looking like total boobs!
And just think what would happen to our stick-figure drawing skills!
You're responsible for molding us from the very beginning...
Sure, just put those letters anywhere.
...all the way into adulthood, preparing us for the outside world!
I gradulate this wreckorator for making me water the keyboard. Through my nose.
So, teachers, we salute you - because even if I broke the safety scissors, slept through class, and skipped most of Senior year...
...I don't think I turned out so bad, after all.



Thanks to Aimee S., Anonymous 1 & 2, Cassandra B., Cassie P., Holly H., Jennifer C., and Sarah F. for these school house wrecks.


Say, have you thanked a teacher today?

I have read these over and over because they make me giggle!! This is one of your funniest ones!! PERFECT commentary!

Weird... My name is Karlee Jo. Harlie Jo is pretty darn close.

You know, that stick figure boob cake's writing looked really good... Until I looked at it again, and noticed it said "Graduit"...

For those of you who missed out on Kindergarten graduation, consider yourself fortunate. My school had one way back in 1972 and the way we had to rehearse for that thing, you would have thought the Queen of England was going to be there! (Not sure she made it.) Not only that, but we had to wear these idiotic white "gowns" with these gigantic red bows. We looked like the minions of a demented clown!I think there was cake, but I don't remember and I was sure glad when it was over! I was so glad my kids didn't have to go through that foolishness!

OMG I think I just went through two years of posts in a matter of about 2 days. I need rest. And chocolate, not of the poop kind.
Thanks for the laughs and the smiles!

The last cake is my niece's cake. No, we did not order the cake that way! We've ordered beautiful Birthday Cakes from this store before, so the only thing we where conserned with them possibly messing up was her name. The lady who usually does the cakes had to leave, so they left it up to another lady who failed. HORRIBLY. We had them place that plastic white cap on the cake to cover up an icing cap. At least I think it was a cap. I thought it was a lopsided diamond with a yellow fork in the middle. It was supposed to be marroon and white for her school colors. Not purple poo brown. My niece took one look at it and declared, "It's a cake! Let's eat!" And no, we did not pay for it. Thank God it tasted good! XD
