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? ;)

Some of my favorite submissions this week.


Oh what a difference a missing "e" can make:

[sound of bomb dropping]
[followed by a THUMP]



Or, if you're like me, first get distracted trying to read the writing, then wonder why there are Hello Kitty boobs over "E linzsbath", and then refuse to believe Amy W. when she says it's a roller skate.

Ok, I guess now I see it.



They asked for a pizza cookie cake:

 Not gonna lie: part of me wishes we were looking at a single slice right now.

Because that'd be a "pizza cake." EH? EH???

At least Cookie Monster gets me.


Susan's husband asked the bakery to draw a pregnant woman on her birthday cake. Now, I assume this is because Susan is pregnant, but just to be safe, NOBODY ASK. [meaningful glare]

Anyway, I've been staring at this for ages, and I still have no idea what's going on here:

It's like a cow... arm chair?

Definitely a cow something, anyway.

So, hey, good luck with that, Susan's husband.


I've seen so many butchered peace signs on cakes that I'm starting to suspect someone changed it without telling us. The prime suspect being Mercedes Benz, of course:


Gosh, if only bakers had a reference on hand to copy! You know, something close by, and in the same colors, and clearly visible...



Peace out to Janie B., Amy W., Laura Y., Linda M., Susan L., Vanya C., & Kerri R..
