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? ;)

Some of my favorite new submissions this week:


Wrecky minion Laura ordered this design for her son's birthday:


...but there must have been a mixup, because instead of trees and pavement, Laura ended up with the rare Mad Mouse, Fury Road color scheme:



Laura tells me her first hint that something was off was the box with her name on it:

Her name is Laura Rio.
[wincing] Oooh. Sorry, Ruwa.


Guess what this next one is:

Hint: It's not a cake. It's a lesson in font selection.


When only Velveeta and the squirty bottle of Dijon mustard will do:

Ahh, I can just see the birthday's girl's face now.

Best keep that serving knife away.


And finally, you wrecky old-timers no doubt remember the original Word Journey, but I submit that this one - dare I say it? - is even better:

Seriously, there are new delights at every turn here. It's a Word Journey with no traffic, your favorite mix tape of boy bands, and every gas station stocked with hot Krispy Kremes and no people in them.

(No people in the gas stations, I mean.)

(Though obviously it's a good thing when Krispy Kremes don't have people in them, either.)

(To be clear, I'm NOT saying Krispy Kremes ever have/had people in them, so don't go spreading that around.)

(I... I'm going to get sued, aren't I.)

9 Times Strategic Thinking Really Paid Off

As you know, September is International Strategic Thinking Month, so while we hang our Strategic Stockings and hum the Strategery anthem, let's take a quick break for cake... strategically.


1: Is your handwriting too big?


2: Too small?


C: Did you start too high?


D: Or too drunk?


5: Do you need to break up a word with a dash?


F: Did you put the emPHAsis on the right syLAble?


VII: Do you know how balloons work?


XVII: Are you feeling dizzy?


And if all else fails, remember: with a little strategic thinking you can print your cake design, thereby eliminating the chance of any... uh... oh.
