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're almost there, minions! We've nearly pried 2016's cold, dead fingers from the doorjambs of history and our lives. This weekend we can finally take a breath, have a drink, and get on with resenting 2017 for all the new terrible stuff that happens.

Remember the Brexit Balls?

Ahh, good times. Good, wrinkly times.


Or how about the time a baker accidentally put some extremely affectionate pandas on a baby shower cake?



I bet we all remember this summer solstice:


Though for me, it's hard (heyo) to come to grips (heyo) with the stiffest competition yet:

The, um... Wangerfly? Dinkerfly? Winged Trouser Snake?

Whatever you call it, he's definitely happy to see you.


So so long, 2016. And hey, 2017? I think I speak for us all when I say:

The Best Misunderstandings Of 2016

As we continue to sift through the wreckage of 2016 for some positive gleams amid the rubble, let us not forget that, no matter how dark the hour, no matter how lost the plot, we can always depend on these bakers to have no idea what you're talking about.





They asked for a rainbow between two clouds. Two CLOUDS.


And here they suggested the baker use Google for a reference:




And best of all:
