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 Oddly Specific Apology Cakes

Far be it from me to ever condemn an apology made with cake.


Today's cakes do make me question being quite so specific about it.

Hey, I just realized this should have been the #1 apology cake for my Go-Go song!


And maybe these were the accompanying cupcakes?

(It says, "Sorry you fell in my pee.")


Now I know why most funeral receptions only serve pie.


Anyone else getting a passive-aggressive vibe here?


Very funny, Dad.


Oh, sure, THIS you can spell. Forget "congratulations," forget "birthday," "GONORRHEA" is the word you get right?! I just...I can't...I don't even...


And what are you smiling about?

This is actually adorable. Assuming it's a joke, of course.
If not, then it's adorable *and* hilarious.


This was a dispute between two chefs, kids. Chefs who are overly fond of their cookware. Honest.


Gentlemen, you know how sometimes you know you need to apologize, but you don't know what to apologize FOR?

This works.


And finally, my favorite apology cake EVER:

Although I can't help imagining the cake exchange going something like this:

"I am a woman."

"Then I'm sorry for second-guessing myself."

...Just because it makes me giggle.

The look on the bride's face?




There are some things money can't buy.
But those things are stupid and overrated.
So buy a decent cake already.


Which reminds me of this not-entirely-safe-for-work video:

And so, in conclusion, just pay the money.


Thanks to Melinda W., Holley W., Kae B., Liz Q., Meghan F., Nikki G., and Lainey M. who thinks we should start investing in styrofoam and cardboard.
