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? ;)

10 Painfully Punny Wrecks For Dad's Day

Now, you guys KNOW I love puns (truth!), but around Father's Day bakers start cranking out a veritable plethora of pastry puns sure to make even the toughest dad cry, "What's THAT supposed to mean?"

It starts out cute:

"Reel great!" With a fish! Haha!

 

Then it gets awkward:

"Yep, mom's one lucky lady to land you, IF you know whadda... ok now I'm grossing myself out."

 

Then confusing/borderline insulting?

Not sure calling Dad "a hole" in ANY context is good.

 

But then it just gets desperate:

"Not to bee that guy, but this cake gives me hives."

 

"Because sometimes we take you for granite!"

[head tilt]

"Or for cow spots."

Moo-ving on...

 

Then there are all the missed opportunities. I mean, c'mon, bakers:

Why doesn't this say, "Let's get hammered!!" WHY?!

 

Fun Fact: Have you noticed puns make bakers - yes, all of them! - forget how to spell "you're?"

Now, can I borrow twenty bucks?

 

...by which I mean you are SUCH a drag.

 

Maybe if you spin around long enough it'll look like a top.

 

There are two ways this next pun could have worked. Thankfully, the baker missed both of them:

There are FOUR. DADS!

(You're welcome, TNG fans.)

 

And last but not least, my favorite bad pun of all:

If your mind immediately went to a disturbingly gory place with this cake, then congratulations. WE CAN BE FRIENDS.

Yep, not only would I buy this cake, I would pay extra for a few red gel splatters on the cake board.
(Uh, because I get my warped sense of humor from my dad, not because I want to saw him up. Honest. HI, DAD.)

 

Thanks to Aneela Q., Christopher W., Nicole J., Elisabeth K., Ashley B., Jen W., Brooke D., Megan Z., Elena E., Tracy M., & Cindy K. for sawing what I did there.
