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? ;)

A few of my favorite new submissions this week:


An oceanography institute held a dessert contest for their employees, but someone apparently decided to cheat a bit, aaaand:

....hilarity ensued.

I like how this person immediately threw the store under the bus. Better for people to know you cheated than think you drew THAT, am I right?

(Though, in the baker's defense, that's a real whale of a penis she drew there.)


And speaking of less-than-family-friendly cake decorating, you've got to watch out for some of these bakers and their four-letter-words:

Thank goodness the snowman censor was there to spare the innocent.


It's decided, I'm calling them this from now and on:



Here's one to file under "Dear God, What IS That Thing?!"

Look closely, and you can almost hear the shrieking eels.

(That's a rather obscure Princess Bride reference. If you got it, let's be friends.)


Btw, ever wonder what some of these cakes are even for?

Well, alrighty, then.


Thanks to David E., Anony M., Ruth C., Autumn J., & Rebecca H. for not "Russian" these wrecks.

National Cowboy Poetry Week, 2016

Not gonna lie, minions: Cowboy Poetry Week is one of my favorite weeks of the year here on Cake Wrecks. Because you just never know how much fun writing cowboy poems is 'til you try... and fail spectacularly. EMBRACE THE BAD, MY FRIENDS.


My horse done went and joined Yoga
She loves it and won't ever quit!
My horse done went and joined Yoga
Now this is how she likes to sit.



Oh, what a hoot,
There's a snake in my boot!
Yet over the hissing
I see the other one's missing
So I guess the point is now moot




Trapped in a casket of societal expectations
Bound by tradition, restricted by custom
But I am more
More than these trappings
More than my job and my people!

So cool it with the cow cakes already, Mom.



Whoa there, Nelly!
Whoa there, generic horse name!

You're both drunk.



I asked for a western to see,
You said, "watch this, trust me!"
What you didn't say
(And it's so not ok)
Is that it was Toy Story 3!?

[ugly crying]



I ride and I rustle
And sometimes I shoot.
I'm a cowboy - a cowboy!

Oh, there it is.
Er, I mean, what bliss!
I thank ye most kindly
For being...

[awkward pause]



Thanks to Kelly G., Katie F., Cassie H., Julia K., Silvia C., & Angela P. for rustlin' up today's wrecks.
