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? ;)

This is a cake I posted back in 2009: 

"Because crime doesn't pay, kids."


And this one I posted in 2011:

"It's kind of a mix between 'shushing' and 'churning.'"


Well, today Deirdre M. sent me this cake:

Three wrecks of the exact same design, misspelled three different ways.



And to celebrate, I will now rehash a slightly dated meme for my own base amusements.

You're welcome.

 (Psst. Hey. You know you want to read this out loud.

Go on.  I won't judge. Much.)


Thanks to Jenn B., Mickie D., and Deirdre M.  for chursh... cursh...ah chrush...smashing crime.

The cake they served but not the one they need right now.

Are these from the the same place over all these years?? The cake plates are the same. (((Holy crappy spelling, Batman)))

8 years and three cakes later, I still don't know what was supposed to be written on the side of the cake...

June 29, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterBecky Albright

I totally read it out loud. :D :D :D

Hi other Deirdre M! (Always excited to find someone who spells it right!)

June 29, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterFrankie

@Becky Albright: "*Crushing* Crime". Now, why this is such a hard word...THERE'S the real mystery. ("Holy Conun-, Candu-, Codnum-" "Don't hurt yourself, kid." "Holy Questions, Batman!")

To be honest - "cashing crime" seems to really fit most Batman villans. They all seem to have unlimited funds and clearly people who don't need to steal for a living. They just want chaos. Otherwise - all "decorators" have had the same training - left action - right highlight - word(ish)ing on the side.

I got my son the SAME CAKE from Wegman's for his birthday and they also messed it up, I made them fix it.

I, Like Mary o, weep for humanity. The dumbing down o fAmerica that I see every day, at work, in public, etc,
just makes me wonder in five or ten years who will be running things? and will there be anyone left to spell correctly and make complete sentences? I wonder...............

June 29, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterShannon

"Cash crime ousside, how bow dat?" That's all I could think of too, Shannon!

Will no one comment on the fact that Batman's tipped over in the last cake?

June 29, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterRune

Also, only one decorator stood Batman up on the rooftop. The others look like he's napping...or got 'churshed' by crime.

June 30, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterTifa

He's tippy on the first one, too, Rune.

June 30, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterNobodee Home

Batman finally had enough and just plain passed out on that last cake. Heck if I were him I would fly off the thing lol.

June 30, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterArlene Marie

Shannon, I can't stop laughing!!!!

June 30, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterEmily B

Emily B, me too. When I first got to the meme image, I was laughing so hard I needed to be administered oxygen.
