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? ;)

10 Bakers Who Would Really Suck At Pictionary

Ready, Set, DRAW!


1. Steak:

I guess "T-Bone" doesn't like his steak well done.


2. Guitar:

Strings are for sissies.


3. Truck Tire:

Yes, really.


4. The Eiffel Tower:

Try as I might, all I can see is the Leg Lamp from A Christmas Story. Just me?


5. Basketball:



6. Flip-Flops:

Made from only the freshest diseased lungs.


7. Alligator:



8. Fire:

"Fire" going down in flames. The irony, it burns.


9. Airplane

"Surely you can't be serious."

"I am serious... and don't call me 'Shirley.'"


10. Elvis:

...left the building a long, LONG time ago. This looks more like David Bowie wearing a skunk.


Thanks to Teresa, Anne D., Mattia M., Julia B., Sherri C., Katelyn C., Rachel, Emily D., Jen M., & Heather R. for drawing all the wrong conclusions.

Editor's note- Some of you have told me that you're having trouble seeing the pictures today. If that's you, would you send me an email to let me know? Thanks so much and Wreck On! -john (the hubby of Jen) (comments(at)

What The Frosting?

No, no, don't tell me, bakers.

Lemme see if I can guess:

Suffocating snowman?


Two-tentacled jellyfish?


Twin highways beside a poppy field?


Dancing lampshade?


Worm wearing a turtle shell?
(Hero in a half shell: EARTHWORM POWER.)


Running Cupcake Man?

Oh! Or McDonald's Fry Guy?


Elmo in a teal turtleneck doing the hula dance with his mouth wide open?

(Admit it: you see it, too.)



Look, bakers, I don't...


I mean, I just can't...




That's it.




Hat tip to Erica, Hollie, Julie B., Emily G., Daemon S., Kerensa J., Rhonda M., & Jullian G., who says she can't wait to scarf one of these down. Heh.
