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? ;)

You might think it's icing holding all those together, but I'm here to tell you: it's not.

Tell Me What You Want, What You Literally Want...

They asked for a big number 8.

They got it.


And this one was to be ready by Wednesday:

(Think if they'd had 'til Friday they could have used a decorator who WASN'T colorblind?)


Remember last week's "Happy Birthday in Chinese" snafu? Well, for this next one they asked a French bakery to write "Happy Anniversary" in Polish.

And now, proof that you can literally wreck a cake in any language:

What's Polish for "facepalm"? Hang on, lemme go look.
Aha! K, here we go:



You'll never guess what color the NSC Sweethearts wanted:

In fact, I bet they wanted blue icing almost as much as they didn't want to be called the "Sweathart's."


While we're hypothesizing, I'm gonna go out on a limb and guess it WILL fit:


And finally, for the days when you're just tired of trying:
