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? ;)

Different Madonna, Different "Holiday"









If we took a hoilday:


Took some time to celebrate


Just one day out of life


It would be...
It would be SO ICE


Everybody spread the lard


We're gonna have a festive nation!


It isn't very hard
to meet expectations!

Ok, new plan:

I loved "Merry HOHO". Just gave up on writing holyday or christmas

Hmm. That fifth cake looks as if it was decorated by one of the "Young Adults". And as for the eighth one, "Well, I swan!"

I love the irony of the learning disabilities cake. Many of the other cakes should also be for that celebration.

December 20, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterRSW

Okay, no more "Merry Christmas" or "Happy Holidays." From now on I'm saying "Merry Hoohoo."

December 20, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterKim

Why and how are so many bakers illiterate??

December 20, 2017 | Unregistered Commentermindy1

I have a hoo hoo, but I have never thought of it as merry. That sounds uncomfortable.

December 20, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterHolly Denghel

"Happy Hoilday young adults with learning disabilities."
Well, that's.... uhm.... extra unfortunate....

December 20, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterFrankN.Stein

"Merry Hoohoo"? That has to be deliberate.

December 20, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterClassic Steve

Nice pile of snowman poop on that second cake.
How can anyone not like a merry hoohoo? Maybe that cake goes with cake 11. . .

This is one of those posts where I'm glad I wasn't drinking anything while I was reading, or my computer would have suffered the same fate as others who post here. I think it's the fifth cake that really points out the problem here, and it isn't the students, it's the bakers. They have a learning disability when it comes to the English language, especially spelling. I mean, unless what you were looking for was a long-necked, graceful, white bird, how can you misspell "snow"? Or how can you spell "annual" right, and get "cocktail" wrong? I know there are supposed to be fifty ways to leave your lover, but fifty ways to spell "holiday"? Looking at all these misspellings is like hearing the fingernails on the chalkboard. But there is one thing to be thankful for in this, hally... holly... holy... holiday season, (Phew! I thought they were rubbing off on me), is that the bakers are giving us something all to laugh about. And also to wonder, what were they thinking, or more appropriately, "What, were they thinking?"

And a Merry HooHoo to all!

I don't know about YOU, but I ALWAYS use Wonder Lard! It's SO white, and creamy, and can do SO much with it. ...for baking, or....use it on your sled runners, or your ice skates. Very versatile ...just ask Cris! Oh, now where did Cris Go?

I laughed at this post, and I laughed even more reading the comments! “Merry Hoohoo”!?

December 20, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterChicago

The Festivus cake was perfect! But "Merry Hoo-Hoo?" Besides making no sense and probably being a misspelling for "Ho-Ho," that's a euphemism for what Trump said he could grab.

December 20, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterDana Corby

The Festivus cake is so amazing though! I love that episode of Seinfeld! "I have a lot of problems with you people!" LMAO!

December 20, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterKristen

I WANT the Rudolph cake with his nose for the “o”. I love it!
I also fail to see what’s wrong with the Festivus cake. Expresses
the sentiment, perfectly snubbing the ‘Holiday Crowd’.

Number 5 had me in stitches. It is evidence that every ableist is just as stupid as they sound.

December 20, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterSarah

Merry Hoo Hoo had me cackling on the bus home!!

December 20, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterKimS

I can't handle MERRY HOO HOO

December 20, 2017 | Unregistered Commenterchula

You do realize the Festivus cake is entirely appropriate? If you're not a Seinfeld watcher, Google it.

December 20, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterCarl

I was just looking at your book on Amazon .... Did you know that one guy is selling a "Used Acceptable" for $605.11? SaaaNAP! (I did not buy it.)

December 20, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterPatricia

Mike's comments got me to thinking: Do bakers in other countries create wrecks in other languages, or is it just those who decorate in English (or something resembling English)?

December 21, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterNobodee Home

Merry Hoohoo??

I...I'll just be over here laughing myself silly. Well. Sillier.

December 21, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterKai Lowell

I just noticed Rudolph Noel’s eyes. He looks like he’s had too many “coctails”!

December 21, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterChicago

Well at least the I hate the holidays cake spelled it correctly and even looked nice lol. Compared to the rest that was the better cake lol.
