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? ;)

Bakers Are Bad At Father's Day, Here's Proof

Every year bakeries grow increasingly desperate for Father's Day decorations that don't include flowers, bows, or copious amounts of Justin Bieber appliques - because men are an enigma wrapped in a mystery shrouded in ugly neckties and plastic handsaws, and WHAT MORTAL SOUL COULD DECIPHER WHAT THEY WANT ON THEIR CAKES?

You sure you don't want this, Dad?


So instead of using fun patterns or hobbies or whatnot, bakeries invariably go for that trusty old stereotypical Father's Day standby:

Whatever The Hell This Is


Then for variety, there are at least a dozen Things That Are Almost - But Not Quite - Entirely Unlike Ties:


Sing with me now: "Bakers gonna bake bake bake bake bake and the Fater's gonna fate fate fate fate fate..."

Please note they added the S later - like that fixed it.


In all seriousness, this COULD be a giant screw, not a tie. It's like that optical illusion where the duck turns into a rabbit, only funnier, because this one you can drop dramatically on the dinner table and yell, "Who wants a Father's Day screw?!"

(Why yes, holidays ARE a hoot at my house - why do you ask?)


Oh! But my favorite - my FAVORITE - is when bakers go completely off script:

It's a remote controlled stingray.


A cheese knife, car key, and Star Trek communicator badge (slightly squished).


And best of all:

A grisly tableau of Father's Day Past. [shudder]


Well, however you celebrate your inscrutable parental enigmas this weekend, minions, just remember: It's not what's on the cake, it's what's in your heart.

And Dod will understand.

Freud Would Have A Field Day


Or as we like to call her, "Tripod."

(That was the most family-friendly joke I could come up with. HI, MOM.)


If you write online a lot, then this next one is for you.

The problem with ordering via e-mail:

Now, everyone laughing, go ahead and explain it to the rest of the class.


Sarah sent in her wedding cake as a "missed mark" wreck, but to be honest, I'm a lot more interested in her choice of table decor:

Please tell me you cut the cake with the Klingon bat'leth, Sarah. PLEASE.


Giving new meaning to the name "dump truck:"

What a load of... ooh, hey, icing!


"Uh, you guys, Jimmy's cake is a little... off... don't you think?"

"Well, we weren't going to say anything, but yeah."

"Think he knows?"



Before you ask, this kid's name was Finn. FINN.

[wincing] Oooh, not good.
I'm guessing Trey snapped this pic right before the cake was hit by lightning.


And while we're talking botched names, look what the baker did to poor Tucker:

(Seriously. HOW IS THAT A 'T'?!)
