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? ;)

Absolutely Ribbeting

Y'know, maybe we're being unrealistic to expect acceptable cakes EVERY time we order.

I mean, what's that expression?

"You've got to kiss a lot of frogs to fi-..."

No, sorry, I said "frog."


Try again?

Still no.


You know, frog. Green. Hops. Lives in swamps.

[long silence]


I think we both know you can do better than THAT.



We both were wrong.



Stop it.


LOOK, I just want ONE vaguely frog-like cake so I can do a kissing metaphor here. Is that asking too much?

Ew. Like ANYONE's going to want to kiss that.

Well played, bakers.

Well played.


Even though they almost made us croak, we jumped for joy when Deborah B., Kelly P., Wesley T., Loren K., Shae, Amy F., & Nicole F. sent these to our pad.

Dear Santa... It's Complicated

[WARNING: Bad word ahead! Clear out the kids!]



Today is the start of Dear Santa week, so time to get those letters out to St. Nick, minions!


This is when you tell Santa how you didn't murder anyone this year even though you really really wanted to, so you totally deserve that Benedict Cumberbatch body pillow and lifetime subscription to Wicked Whoopies. You know, just as a "for instance."

[side eye]

Of course, personally assessing your own "good" or "bad" behavior beyond non-murder can be a little dicey. I mean, who HASN'T slipped up from time to time


or accidentally said what they were thinking out loud


or sent an in-law a giant horse's.... butt?


Ahh, but not to worry! One baker has done all the work for us this year, perfectly summing up our collective behavior during 2018 in a single, surprisingly eloquent cookie cake:


But there were extenuating circumstances, Santa, honest.


Thanks to Mark M., Alyssa P., Jennifer D., & Jodi N. for the capital letter.
