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 Bakers Who Would Really Suck At Pictionary

Ready, Set, DRAW!


1. Steak:

I guess "T-Bone" doesn't like his steak well done.


2. Guitar:

Strings are for sissies.


3. Truck Tire:

Yes, really.


4. The Eiffel Tower:

Try as I might, all I can see is the Leg Lamp from A Christmas Story. Just me?


5. Basketball:



6. Flip-Flops:

Made from only the freshest diseased lungs.


7. Alligator:



8. Fire:

"Fire" going down in flames. The irony, it burns.


9. Airplane

"Surely you can't be serious."

"I am serious... and don't call me 'Shirley.'"


10. Elvis:

...left the building a long, LONG time ago. This looks more like David Bowie wearing a skunk.


Thanks to Teresa, Anne D., Mattia M., Julia B., Sherri C., Katelyn C., Rachel, Emily D., Jen M., & Heather R. for drawing all the wrong conclusions.

Editor's note- Some of you have told me that you're having trouble seeing the pictures today. If that's you, would you send me an email to let me know? Thanks so much and Wreck On! -john (the hubby of Jen) (comments(at)

Do you frequently need to abandon your work for sudden emergencies?


Are your trips to the beach often cut short?


Are you perplexed by the constant trail of crap that follows where ever you go?

If the answer is yes then you may be suffering from Flotsampoowreckitis, or FPW, a common condition afflicting literally millions of plastic cake toys.

While there is no cure, FPW is nothing to be ashamed of! Why, just look at all these celebrity toys living loud and proud with THEIR frosted poop piles!

"I tell everyone it's the grease in 'greased Lightning.'"


"Then she was all, 'Can YOU say 'sexy?!'"


Even Merida knows being ashamed of FPW is just horse... rocks.

So brave.


So don't turn your back on Flotsampoowreckitis, flotsam!

Embrace it!


"Oooh, commmmfy."


Then you, too, can move on with your regular duties, knowing life won't pass you by!


So go on, cake flotsam: get out there, and embrace life to the fullest.

And just, uh, try to ignore all those giant turds beside you.


Thanks to Anony M., Laura N., Heidi T., Melissa C., Alex M., Miranda H., Cassandra M., Paula M., Amber G., and Chera D. , who are still giggling over "regular duties." (No? Just me?)
