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? ;)

In The Not-So-Distant Future...

Greetings. I am Siri3000, your automated cake decorator. How may I help you?

"Siri, I need a cake."

I am programmed with 12 billion different cake styles. What kind of cake would you like?

"Well, I was kinda hoping for a soccer cake..."

I have made 23,000 soccer cakes. Commencing slideshow mode.

Cake 1:

"Um, you don't have to show me every ca..."


Cake 2:

"Really, this isn't necessary..."


Cake 3:

"Ok, I get the idea."


Cake 4:



May I help you with something else?

"Okay. Yes. The cake is for my team..."

Making By Tim cake:

"NO! TEAM. Like a sports team. It's the Trojans..."


Making Trojan covered cake.

That will be $374.50. Charging credit card...

"WAIT! I wanted a photo cake!"


Making photo cake.

[flash bulb goes off]

"What - NO! Not of ME!!

"Okay, STOP! Just... stop. I don't have the photo for the cake now, but I will bring it in. Okay?






Thanks to Aimee P., Victoria W., Jarrod P., Jenna K., Melanie W., Lorie B., Bridget & Jarrod, Daphne G., and especially to our friend Teeter of Red Rocket Farm for the inspiration:


Did I make you laugh? Do you shop Amazon? Then how about clicking through my affiliate link to shop? By visiting Amazon through that link, CW will earn a small percentage of your purchase - but it costs you nothing. NOTHING, I say!

(Our ad revenue has really tanked this month - John & I aren't even bringing in enough to cover any guest writers - so you'd be helping out the whole CW team with your click. Even better, you can help us every time you shop Amazon; just use the link we'll be providing at the end of each day's post.)

Together, we can achieve wrecky world domination!! Or at least keep our respective cats fed. Either way, s'all good. Thanks, guys!


High There

On January 1st, my home state of Colorado started selling legal recreational marijuana.

You know what that means, right?




Say, you think this cake comes with a side of brownies? [eyebrow waggle]


I live in a college town, so I'm used to the occasional whiff of weed here and there. Still, you can imagine how it is now. Not to worry, though; I have an extremely strong constitution. Yep, stone-cold-sober Sharyn, that's what they call me! Heh. Aheh. Heh.

[long pause]

Man, I could really go for some nachos right now.

Weird. I don't even like refried beans.


Anyway, like I said, there's no chance of me being affected...

Hey, there's leftover spaghetti and biscotti! Brilliant!

It never even occurred to me to combine these before!
I think I'll call it "Bisghetti." No, "Spaghotti!"

Anyway, definitely getting a patent on this.


Wait. Waitwaitwait.
I don't want to scare you guys, but I think we're being watched.

[staring intently at the salt shaker]

(40 minutes later)


Hey, have you seen this picture of my brother's levitating cat?

I didn't even know c@s could DO th@!

=^..^= (The kids call that "texting.")


Well, I'm feeling a bit sleepy. So. You know...

Cha. Righteous.


Thanks to Anony M., Lisa H., Debra B., Rachael D., Jill A., Kelly B., & MJ. I'd say more, but I really need a snack...
