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? ;)

My Bad, Dad

This Father's Day, there's nothing like a cake to express your feelings for dear old dad.

 He just might have to read between the lines a little:


"Because I've always wanted to give you the finger."


  "The farther away you are, the better."


  "Social convention dictates I acknowledge this holiday.

That doesn't mean I have to wish you a happy one."


"We're both laughing, but for different reasons."



"And by 'anchor', I mean you're a huge drag."



"Your number slipped into the the triple digits this year, so I just left it blank."


And just in case those little plastic pieces didn't get the point across:

"Hey, Dad!

"...You're a giant tool!"



Thanks to Scott A., T.D., Sarah C., Colleen B., Kellie B., Alicia Y., & Jen W. for telling us EXACTLY what that's supposed to mean.


Beachy Keen

Ah, the heady, celebratory days of summer:


Say this with your teeth gritted, and you'll sound like Sean Connery. 

Ohh, and while you're at it, repeat after me:


Ha! Although really it should sound more like, "Schuck it, Trebek."

(Don't get it? This should help.)


Where was I?

Oh, right.


So, school's out, and it's time for that quintessential summer activity:

Fun and sun at the beach!

 Gee. Way to sell it, bakers.


Mmmm. Radioactive wasteland has never looked so...mildewy.


Uh, guys? Is this what I think it is?

Black "water," two plastic ships, found on the shelf in August of 2010... 


 (Yep, I really waited two whole years to post this wreck. The first person to cry "too soon!" has to eat it. :D)


Well, if an edible oil spill isn't your thing, then how about an edible hurricane?


(If you get that reference you win two gold stars and a 'nother cow.)

 You know, on second thought, I think I'll just stay inside this summer. Seem safer that way. Y'all have fun out there, y'hear?


Thanks to today's wreckporters Hillary I., Audrey P., Kristen S., Jessica N., Hope R., & Thia S. for reminding me why I don't leave the house.
