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? ;)

"We all know the importance of a water filter. It is an important part of every household."

This cake is very ugly!

Water Filters For Less


"There are many brands of water filters. Many are good brands."

This cake is not spelled right!

This cake is showing a dead clown!

Glorious Water Filters Of Joy Helped Me Lost Ten Pounds


"In conclusion, not all water filters are the same. Many water filters are different."


The guitar looks very much like a penis!

Thanks to Amy B., Jennifer C., Viole, & Valerie F. for reminding me of all the times a news outlet asks to feature a CW slideshow - and then writes their own captions.

I think you should have reposted the photo of the Cakewrecks well with the simple caption of:

Filter THIS, Bucko. We're saving the whole village...and our clean water is FREE.

The Midnight Writer (stands and applauds) BRAVO

Sharyn, you know you made me LOL. Heck, the whole county knows. Between the pithy writing of john(thoj), you and the other guest writers- I'm doing my demented hyena impression again. (I kinda feel bad when Animal Control Services shows up and can't find a 4 legged critter making all the noise...)

I just realized that that meme character looks like it has a Fu Manchu mustache. Now I can't unsee it.

Well now I can't stop laughing. My hubby will probably come home and find me still laughing hysterically and pointing to this site lol. Thanks for the much needed giggles.

@Barbara Anne: Make sure you have an up-to-date rabies certificate... ;)

I have announced to my primary social network that "Glorious Water Filters Of Joy Helped Me Lost Ten Pounds" is the catchphrase of the day; I just thought you should know that! ;D

I'm plagued by these types of emails from my blog too. They're such a nuisance.
Have you seen many incoherent blog posts? Some of them are really funny.

Your penis... will need... a wheelbarrow... If I ever saw those words in an email I might just click on that bastage. My ovaries are bursting with laughter!

What Jodee & Barbara Anne said, particularly the part about other things getting in the way of CakeWrecks time. Hubby was sick & I had to take him to the doc, like he couldn't drive while sick?! I once drove my special needs kid to his special school an hour away when I had food poisoning. So what if I spent the rest of the day sick in the car?! ;-) (and my kid better say thank you when he's all grown-up... :-)

@Jodee: :-)
@Barbara Anne: thank you (smiles)

This is GENIUS. I've been laughing about this for days now. You got everything: the bad grammar, the bland captioning, the unavoidable water filter plugs, and even the lorem ipsum. BRILLIANT.

I get these emails ALL the time over at my blog - it's like - WTF? Do people subcontract their blog to someone in China or something? Very odd!

Now I guess it's probably just those pesky Water Filters!

I'm a college writing teacher... and this is the best thing I've ever read. In conclusion, humor is defined as something that is funny, and this is an example of something that is funny, so therefore humor.

DUDE. My other favourite blog, SleepTalkinMan, has been on something of a hiatus since the slightly preemie birth of their daughter back in Feb.; hard to be talkin in your sleep when a newborn keeps you up all night. Thing is, they've never bothered to set the Comments section to Verify, and the last time I checked, their last post has well over 600 COMMENTS (their previous average was, like, 10), almost ALL of them being some of the craziest, weirdest, "WTF kinda crazy moon language is THAT?!" SPAM posts I have EVER seen, everything from similar offers to write for/advise you on your blog, to.... toys of an adult nature. ALL of it in some of the craziest babble I have ever tried to wrap my brain around, like that old program from WAY back in the day that let your computer form random sentences to answer your weird questions? SMOKE coming from my ears... does not compute... NORMAN-- COORDINATE!

Your Pal,
