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.

"What country is this, again?"


You ever get a little punchy while you're waiting to clock out?

[giggling] "Ok, ok, now throw this York peppermint patty on it. DO IT. I dare you."



"Look! I made a toothbrush!

"A cake toothbrush! I AM A GENIUS. KNEEL BEFORE ZOD! MWUAH-Ha-haaaa!"


But mostly I bet you're just watching the clock and phoning it in, am I right?

"Close enough."


"Like I'm going to look up a reference image at 4 o'clock on a Friday." 


And my favorite:

Since bakers have always struggled with all those stars on the US flag, cake companies made a plastic insert they could use. Unfortunately, no one told the bakers they still have to add the rest of the flag:

I like it. Very... clean.


So remember, my fellow Americans: get out there this weekend and celebrate our Independence the way bakers intended:
