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? ;)

10 Oddly Specific Apology Cakes

Far be it from me to ever condemn an apology made with cake.

However....

Today's cakes do make me question being quite so specific about it.

Hey, I just realized this should have been the #1 apology cake for my Go-Go song!

 

And maybe these were the accompanying cupcakes?

(It says, "Sorry you fell in my pee.")

 

Now I know why most funeral receptions only serve pie.

 

Anyone else getting a passive-aggressive vibe here?

 

Very funny, Dad.

 

Oh, sure, THIS you can spell. Forget "congratulations," forget "birthday," "GONORRHEA" is the word you get right?! I just...I can't...I don't even...

 

And what are you smiling about?

This is actually adorable. Assuming it's a joke, of course.
If not, then it's adorable *and* hilarious.

 

This was a dispute between two chefs, kids. Chefs who are overly fond of their cookware. Honest.

 

Gentlemen, you know how sometimes you know you need to apologize, but you don't know what to apologize FOR?

This works.

 

And finally, my favorite apology cake EVER:

Although I can't help imagining the cake exchange going something like this:

"I am a woman."

"Then I'm sorry for second-guessing myself."

...Just because it makes me giggle.

Oh wow now I think I have seen everything. Sorry I slept with your mom? Are you kidding me? Lol that person would probably have to run for the hills unless it is dad playing a joke then he would be running from mom lol. Wow.. poor Dana. Such a nice cake too. I want a cake apology for all the evil clown cakes waiting for me :D/

The sorry I slept with your mom cake is clearly from "Dad."

I am loving that crab cake!

This spring, I forwarded the "sorry I projectile vomited all over your apartment and cat" cake post to a friend, because although he didn't have a cat, the apology was long overdue.

Is it bad that I want to claim the crab cake as my own creation?? Because I totally made that cake and I'm a little excited that one of my cakes made it onto cake wrecks. And although it's technically classified as a wreck, Jen does mention that it's adorable. Score!

I wonder if the "I'm sorry, I thought you were a women" cake was misspelled a different way. What if it was "I'm sorry, I thought you were a womyn" as in "I'm sorry, I thought you were a lesbian" It makes a little more sense that way. Kinda.

Read to the tune of the nursery rhyme "This is the house that Jack built"

This is the cake polka dot bordered

This is the 6 cupcakes all ordered
that rivaled the cake polka dot bordered

This is cheery cherry cake for dad
that followed the 6 cupcakes all ordered
that rivaled the cake polka dot bordered

This is the bad knee-ed walker weary
that saw the dad cake cherry and cheery
that followed the 6 cupcakes all ordered
that rivaled the cake polka dot bordered

This is mom's flowers beguiled
that made the bad knee-ed walker weary
that saw the dad cake cherry and cheery
that followed the 6 cupcakes all ordered
that rivaled the cake polka dot bordered

This is the orange smile
that mom's flowers did beguile
that made the bad knee-ed walker weary
that saw the dad cake cherry and cheery
that followed the 6 cupcakes all ordered
that rivaled the cake polka dot bordered

This is the beach crab sand
that smiled an orange smile
that mom's flowers did beguile
that made the bad knee-ed walker weary
that saw the dad cake cherry and cheery
that followed the 6 cupcakes all ordered
that rivaled the cake polka dot bordered

This is the substance banned
that previewed the crab's sand
that smiled an orange smile
that mom's flowers did beguile
that made the bad knee-ed walker weary
that saw the dad cake cherry and cheery
that followed the 6 cupcakes all ordered
that rivaled the cake polka dot bordered

This is the pair of flowers stupid
that apologized for the substance banned
that previewed the crab's sand
that smiled an orange smile
that mom's flowers did beguile
that made the bad knee-ed walker weary
that saw the dad cake cherry and cheery
that followed the 6 cupcakes all ordered
that rivaled the cake polka dot bordered

This is the confused cupid
that saw a pair of flowers stupid
that apologized for the substance banned
that previewed the crab's sand
that smiled an orange smile
that mom's flowers did beguile
that made the bad knee-ed walker weary
that saw the dad cake cherry and cheery
that followed the 6 cupcakes all ordered
that rivaled the cake polka dot bordered

the only thought that comes to mind is: what about all the things you can't apologize for in cake (aka "check with the library on the statute of limitations in this county first")?

not that I've ever done anything illegal, of course. just sayin'.

July 21, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterBarbara Anne

I could use that last cake except in my case it would read, "Sorry I thought you were a man".

July 22, 2012 | Unregistered Commenterkaisee

@Barbara Anne -- how 'bout "Sorry the last cake I baked you had a dead rat in it." Would you chance it?

I think the "Sorry I slept with your Mom" cake was from Woody Allen.

July 22, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterSharyn

I glanced over the first one and here's the thought process..."sorry i peed on your cake"....what were they drinkimg to get those colours? Oh wait, it says in your bed, my bad :)

July 22, 2012 | Unregistered Commenterdanielle

LMAO, Sharyn!! that's freakin' funny

The "sorry I gave you crabs" cake reminds me of the presents I give my brother. We've detested each other our whole lives and the past several years I've taken to buying him stuffed-animal versions of various diseases as presents. The first one was a stuffed-animal gonorrhea microbe.

"So what did you give your brother this year?"

"Gonorrhea."

"Um..."

Cake #10- Did anyone else think of the movie "Rat Race"? It has those exact 2 lines in it:
"I'm sorry, I thought you were a woman."
"I am a woman."

Your website, will forever cheer me up. Thank you for making my world less depressing. Thank you for making me laugh. These cakes are my favorites, but I love so many more that you post. <3

So, is the "dead dad" cake an apology cake or a condolence cake? Because if you're sending sympathy, it's ridiculously cheery (which I love). But if it's really an apology, that makes it SO much better. Because now I want to know...what did you have to do with killing Dad?

September 18, 2012 | Unregistered Commenteramandapottsy

Sorry I peed in your bed....hahaha wow
But hey, nothing say's "Sorry I projectile vomited all over your apartment and cat" like a chocolate heart cake
