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? ;)

Now THESE Are Cakes You Send To Internet Trolls

A lot of folks are sending me this story of a baker turning mean internet comments into "tasty troll cakes." In a nutshell, you pay her to write someone's mean comment on a cake, and then send that person the cake. That's right, you punish an internet troll... by sending them free baked goods.

Anyone else see the inherent flaw in this plan? I mean, I get the visual metaphor of eating your own words, but if that cake isn't beet-flavored with Miracle Whip icing, then what is even the point.

Still, if you're determined to pay your hard-earned dollars to send mean people cake, then allow me to at least make a few design suggestions:

Except you're not sorry, are you? NO YOU ARE NOT.
(Also, rainbows! Whee!)


A true classic with bonus head-scratching potential. Plus more rainbows.


There's the purely sarcastic approach:


Did your internet troll give you an especially patronizing "tip?"
Then please please please send this one:


Or finally, there's the extra innocent, nothing-to-see-here, no really, that's TOTALLY safe to eat approach:

"Pay no mind to the webcam inside the cake box lid. Go on. HAVE SOME JUST DESSERTS. Er, I mean just dessert. Yeah. Heheheheh."

Who's In Trouble? It's Gonna Be MAY

There's a very important phrase you need to know today, minions.

No, that's not quite right.


Still not there.


This... doesn't even make sense.
