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? ;)

The Top Super Bowel 2015 Fumbles

The Big Game may be over, but we're still tallying up the score on the 2015 Super Bowel!

Why is it called the Super Bowel, you ask?

Simple: because everyone in it really has to go.


(I think this is what they call a "Hawlk Smash Cake.")


Oh, and hey, big congrats to all the Prats out there:


And our condolences to ol' what's-their-name:

It was a valiant battle of tight ends, easy scores, and regulation-approved ball grabbing, but in the end I think we can all agree that Nationwide commercial was a total downer.

(Seriously, Nationwide. DA HECK.)


Yes, my friends, let us never forget... the year of ex-licks.

... and unfortunately phallic helmets.

Because seriously, a helmet that looks like a schlong?
Now that's using your head!


Thanks to April W., Leslye B., Karie P., Justine B., Jennifer P., & Marilyn Z., who all admit they read it as "ex-licks" every time, too.

So, Where Ya Want It?

It's always important to tell your baker where you want the writing on your cake, lest you end up with one of these situations:

"Really, it's the only place that just made sense."


So, for instance, if you ask a baker to "write Happy Birthday on top," you might get this:


...but you could ALSO get this:

Which is hilarious.
But still wrong.


So try to be specific! Use words like "in the middle" to avoid confusion.

See how much clearer that is?


And you can't go wrong with directions like "over this" and "under that," right?

I mean, when has that ever caused a problem?


Oh! And if you're ordering a specific cake kit design, just use that as a reference.

It does help if your baker knows what an "outfield" is.



They... they just moved the hat.


This is going to be harder than I thought.


Well, dear minions, in the end you'll just have to trust that most of your inscription will probably end up on the cake somewhere.

And then you can always send it to me.
