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 Big Bang Theory

When it comes to cake fireworks, bakers like to start things off with a bang:

Although sometimes they're less about writing the word BANG and more



Or...candy canes.



...defying the laws of physics.



Hey, you know what every 4th of July needs?
Exploding balls, that's what.

(Double ouch.)


I'm pretty sure this baker only works for tips:



Figures. Just when I find some fireworks that almost sorta kinda LOOK like fireworks...

...I realize they're supposed to be surfboards.

Because that totally makes sense.


Well, I guess it's only fair that we go out with a big bang:

Just make sure you have it home by 11.


Pro Tip: icing elevations lasting more than four hours may require professional attention. Discontinue piping and call your baker if you experience dizziness, sudden sugar cravings, or the uncontrollable urge to make cupcake cakes.


Thanks to Meredith M., Erin W., Holly A., Elisabeth M., Shara S., Laura R., Natalie & Jennifer for the bang-up job!


Meanwhile, at the Unintentionally Erotic Bakery...

"Deb, everyone keeps laughing at our new spiral donuts. Any idea why?"

"Really? Still? Drat. I even added a sign - I thought that would help."

"Yeah, about that....I'm not sure we should be telling customers to not get their "panties" in a twist. Could you change that?"

"Oh, sure."

"And make sure the new sign mentions we can heat the donuts up, too."

"You got it!"




Attention, customers: THEY'RE JUST DONUTS. 

Don't get your p***s in a twist. 


 P.S. Available Hot...

or Cold!


 Thanks for the dough nuts, Sophie F.!
