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? ;)

Name That Wrong

I'm old.

I know this because my shoulder hurts right now and I want to tell absolutely everyone about it. Also, I don't like the rap music.

So when I hear of some unbearably trying-too-hard celebrity naming their kid Pirate* or Audio Science* or Banjo*, I get offended in a way that only we Americans are bored enough to get.

[*Actual celebrity kid names.]

For instance:


Are these names? Are they mistakes? The world may never know.
But by golly, we can assume the worst and get ticked off anyway.


The only thing more confusing than the words are the decorations. Are those... targets?


It must be heck figuring out which basket is hers.


Funny, he doesn't look like a "Pin." More like a "Nougat" or "Flip Phone," am I right?

They're All Mad There

Right, minions, let's do this one by the numbers.

Here's what Michael B. asked for:


Aaaaand here's what he got:

So something here clearly doesn't add up.


And if you thought numbers were hard - which, let's be honest, you did not - imagine the issues a wreckerator might have trying to recreate THIS:

Yep, someone wanted a cake Mason jar.
(I blame Pinterest.)

In fact, not just one someone, TWO someones!

Here's Someone #1's version:

I am raising a single eyebrow SO HARD right now.


Aaaaand Someone #2's:

Which is appropriate, since it's definitely bringing to mind #2.


And finally, Trevia ordered this lovely Alice in Wonderland cake:

...minus the teapot and epic "ONEderland" pun.


Even if you believe six impossible things before breakfast, this one's a little hard to swallow:

Though it definitely made someone mad. o.0


Thanks to Michael B., Crystal B., Stephanie H., & Trevia M. for taking the fall down that rabbit hole for us.
