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 Best Return For Your Money

Spacing: The FINAL frontier.

These are the travesties of the bakers-who-don't-plan-ahead-well.

Plus the ones who like to center-justify their text so each line only has four letters each, because, yeah, THAT makes sense.

(Great. Now I really want there to be a band named the Cong Rats.)

Or how about just three letters each?



I know how those long words can sneak up on you, bakers, but the important thing is to make sure everything is legible and spelled correctly:

Oooh, so close.


Less close.


You're kidding, right?




Then there are the bakers who get their spacing right, but throw in a dash anyway:

Dash it all!

And, uh, this person:

Oooh, if only there'd been more space for the baker to work with!


 And finally, there are the bakers who are just batpoop insane:

Forget the writing - I want to know what that drippy brown spot is. I?

Dang, Cakes. YOU UGLY.

Minions, if you want an occasion to be TRULY memorable, then only the worst will do.

Do you think S.L. will be forgetting her wedding cake anytime soon?


So if you can't beat 'em, I say, join 'em!


From baby showers: Valentines: an overwhelming sense of ennui:

There are just so many memories to be made!


Going to the beach?


Hate your kids?


Or, yes, even planning a Nightmare Before Christmas themed wedding?

Just think, with Cake Wrecks, the nightmare can be NOW.


Thanks to S.L., Jamie W., Virginia, Tania S., Jodee R., Michelle L., & Nicole S. for the real scream.
