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? ;)

How hard is it to write, "It's a boy"?


Oooh, so close.


Less close.




"Bay?" Really?


And yet they nailed "congratulations."


[massaging temples] Two tries, both wrong.


[forehead on keyboard] Well, the "A" is back...




And finally, the wreckiest version of "It's A Boy" I've seen yet - and which I promise I am not making up:



Thanks to Ashley L., Alison U., Laura M., Suzanne L., Karin A., Heather C., Cat W., Kayla F., Melissa H., & Jill D. for finally finding something worse than the "Finally A Boy" debacle of '08.

Wedding Wrecks, Fangirl Edition

Imani wanted this cake for her wedding, only with bright lime green flowers instead of pink:


She got this:




And Meredith asked for this design with little pumpkins instead of apples:


... but she got this:




And finally, as a baker herself, Zoey decided to keep her wedding cake design SUPER simple to avoid potential wreckage:

No piping required! Just plain frosted tiers and colored sugar crystals!


Say it with me, now:

What could possibly go wrong?


Oooh, Sherlock, you so bad.


Thanks to Imani R., Meredith R., & Zoey K., who want to know if I seriously just turned this post into a SuperWhoLock love fest. And the answer is yes, YES I DID.
