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.


They asked for Happy Birthday, with a drawing of a sun.

You scream, I scream, we all just keep screaming.


No, no, I won't leave you like that! Here's one last giggle to make it all better:

Jack really likes football, which is what his parents explained to the bakery. More specifically, he's a big fan of the Colts.

8 Hilarious Wrecks Bakers Want Us To Believe Are Football Helmets

I'll be the first to admit that a football helmet is not the easiest thing to draw:

It's all round and confusing and stuff.



But still.


Really, bakers?




If you had no context, tell me you wouldn't think this was a cheese grater:


And this was a happy whale:


Here's a couch in front of a window:


And a, uh...

...demonic hacky sack?


Eesh, how sad is it when this is the best one?


If only bakers had a helmet shaped PAN, you know? Something that locks them into the right shape, so they absolutely, positively, could NOT mess it...



Thanks to Bruce B., Manda, Matt M., Anony M., Brielle R., Kristin N., Heather F., Rachel K., & Anna E. for finding a reason I might actually need a helmet. (Or possibly a padded desk.)
