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 It Might Have Happened

"Hello? Yes, I'd like to order a cake that looks like my husband's Audi. That's right, an Audi. And could you make it a nice coppery brown? Thanks!"


[Later that day]






Alisha E., don't tell me that's not really what happened, because I choose to believe it is. So there.

The Grill Blaster

Like mosquito bites and an overabundance of guys wearing loafers without socks, "grillin'" cakes are an inseparable part of summer.

But should they be?

I mean, we can't get rid of all the mosquitoes, and we can't seem to convince guys that sweaty loafer feet are icky, but we CAN do something about this, minions:

That's right: we can just say "NO" to 5 pounds of black icing.


"NO" to airbrushed rice cakes on our real cakes:


And "NO" to hairy Tribble pelts and decaying poo wangs!


We can do better, America.

We can have hot dog cakes.


Or watermelon cakes!


Or even a classic half-burger cake!

Which could double as a taco!

So bakers, I hope this has shown you that we want MORE than just black-and-brown piles of crappy icing.

We want MULTICOLORED piles of crappy icing.

Thank you.


And thanks also to Woneita, Angie H., Peter N., Patricia, Jess A., & Libby T. for RUINING Taco Tuesday. Now I have to eat cake instead. DANGIT.
