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? ;)

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.

In Which Jen Tries To Keep The Ball Jokes To A Minimum

Right off the bat, minions, I should tell you today's sportsball cakes are all par for the course.

(Hey, HERE'S A TIP.)


I mean, sure, some will seem out of left field...


...but these are right up your alley.

(I'll spare you the gutter-minded humor on this one.)


And somehow these cakes still reel customers in

...hook, line, and dink(er.)


You may see a swing and a miss:

(Or third base, depending on your perspective...)



But to the bakers, these are a slam dunk:



So the next time you feel like bakeries have you in a choke hold, minions...


...just remember: you could be looking at a real catch.



Thanks to Allison W., Scott W., Sarah H., Annilee A., Christina E., Marla G., Julia K., Michelle L., Steve S., Katie G. for staying on the ball by throwing it in my court after documenting those that dropped it.
