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? ;)

And if you thought numbers were hard - which, let's be honest, you did not - imagine the issues a wreckerator might have trying to recreate THIS:

Yep, someone wanted a cake Mason jar.
(I blame Pinterest.)

In fact, not just one someone, TWO someones!

Here's Someone #1's version:

I am raising a single eyebrow SO HARD right now.


Aaaaand Someone #2's:

Which is appropriate, since it's definitely bringing to mind #2.


And finally, Trevia ordered this lovely Alice in Wonderland cake:

...minus the teapot and epic "ONEderland" pun.


Even if you believe six impossible things before breakfast, this one's a little hard to swallow:

Though it definitely made someone mad. o.0


Thanks to Michael B., Crystal B., Stephanie H., & Trevia M. for taking the fall down that rabbit hole for us.
