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? ;)

Sprinkled With Pride


Here in America...[dramatic pause]...we believe in... patriotism! Integrity! Courage!

We believe that Old Glory should cover not only our hearts...

...but our stomachs as well.

[swelling music]

We believe that education and patriotic sprinkles are the bedrock of our society:

But mostly the sprinkles.

[music swelling further]


We believe that the size of our cupcakes should not be defined by the size of our cups...

...but by the size of our ovens.

We believe that even our bread pudding...

...should be frosted. Patriotically.

Here in America, we believe that no cupcake is complete...

...until it is deep-fried.

Aw yeeeah.

[music swelling further]


Where even our drizzle is patriotic:

And our monkeys...

...wear American kimonos.

Because we believe that monkey cakes wearing American kimonos is what America is all about.


[music now fully swollen]

And my friends, let us never forget, when it comes to American pride...

...we know how to rock it.


Glynis C., Carol G., Kay S., Jessica T., Cindy, Jessie from Cakespy, Molly M., Elizabeth J., & Brouk, now's the time on Sprockets when we dance. With monkeys. In kimonos. Patriotically.


Oh, the Irony

Oh, they're feeling appreciated, alright.

Or at least in need of some red icing.

Thank goodness the Drink Club found a baker who really gets into the spirit(s):

(Hey, so that's where the missing "c" went!)

Double your pleasure, double your pun: Hey, Glendale, your weight is over!

The question is: how do you define, "Bigest Loser?"

Say, does this next cake remind you guys of anything?

Anything at all?

Just curious.

And finally, there are many ways to spell the word "irony." This, however, is probably the best one of all:


Laura B., Audrey C., Nicole V., Katherine C., & Dana A., isn't it ironic? Don'cha think?
