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? ;)

This Cake's Got Balls. (No, Like Literally.)

Hey, do you know what Truck Nuts are?

If you do, congrats, you're from the South like me. YEEHAW AND HOWDY.

For the rest of you, Truck Nuts are dangling testicles for your truck. I wish I was making this up.

Anyway, the reason I mention Truck Nuts (besides seeing how many times I can type "Truck Nuts" in this post) is because NOW THEY MAKE THEM FOR CAKES, and the world will never be same.

Keep scrolling; this needs a proper build up.


And while I've got you here, I'm open to suggestions on how to post this to Facebook without getting banned.




(Lousy naked turkey cake.)


Almost there, now.


Still ready?


Here we go:


But not like that.




OK, for real now:

Great Blushing Beefy Bow-Balls, Batman!

I'll give you a moment.

Honestly, there's something almost poetic about a sparkly pink cake with balls. It says, "Hey, I like sparkly pink cake and bows, AND I HAVE BALLS." Y'know? [nodding] Yeah. I like that.

NSFW Baby Shower Cake Accidentally BEARS ALL

Like a lot of new parents-to-be, Jen and Scott asked for a cutesy bear on their baby shower cake.

But instead, they got...


I know, I know. At first glance you're like, "Nooo, they CAN'T be." Then you look closer, and you're like, "THEY TOTALLY ARE DA HECK WHO MADE THIS CLIP ART?!"

And bee tee dubs, those aren't even happy effing pandas, you guys. I mean, Mrs. P clearly has a headache, and just wants to eat, shoot, and leave.
(Grammar nerd humor HEYOOOO.)

So let this be a lesson to you, bakers: GOOGLE WISELY. Lest you, too, become bamboozled.

Oh, and maybe turn your Safe Search on.


Thanks to Jen L. for managing to grin and bear it. The cake wreck, I mean. Not the... OH NEVER MIND.
