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? ;)

When you see as many bad cakes as we do, it's easy to lose track of time.

And spacingth. And grammarth.


Then after we sort all the cakes, we have to write something funny-but-also-tasteful, so no one gets offended.

Nailed it.

After the Windons 8 debacle, we've done pretty well with Snow Lepard,

...although it can be a little spotty.


Yep, we've become Master Chiefs of Busines!

This cakey, wrecky busines.

Because you're worth it.


And in the end, I KNOW you're going to like this post.

Coocle Analytics tells me so.


Statistically speaking, the odds are pretty high I'm going to thank Sandra C., Katherine S., Kynli N., Lisa C., Suzanna H., Kate O., Chor J., Julie D., Emily D., and Tim. Because running spreadsheets is WAY easier than spreading frosting on sheet cakes.

10 Absolutely Ridiculous Easter Cakes


"Iiiittty bitty living space."


Ever wonder why cake decorators use so much plastic flotsam?



Still, where there's a will to wreck, there is a way:

Bravo, wreckerators. BRAVO.


Because when I think of the resurrection of Jesus, I think of splattery tie-dye:

And carrots on a cross.

(I looked it up: carrots are NOT cruciferous vegetables. Dang it.)


Easter egg or old pepperoni?



Q: So how hard IS it to make an egg-shaped cake?

A: Oh, about that hard.


"Quick! To the Dimensionally Inaccurate Carrot Car, Bun-Man!"

"I'll be right behind you in the Electro Egg!!"



"It's pronounced 'Buh-THEAD.'"

"And that's MISTER Butthead to you."


Confession: I actually love these and want a dozen of my very own:

Mostly because they remind me of this:
