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? ;)

A Home Run For Parents

It's an immutable law of nature: parents have to embarrass their kids. HAVE TO.

So to show how hep and "with it" she was, Michelle asked the baker to write, "Happy 10th Birthday, Dude!" on her son's birthday cake.

And did that turn out well?

Well, DUH.

Oh hey, bonus poo palms! NOICE.

(I still use 'Dude' all the time, too, Michelle. SOLIDARITY.)


Or how about having your folks bring THIS in for the team picnic?

If you want to give yourself a headache, try to figure out what (if anything) is written on the wood.

Then try to resist making an in inappropriate "wood" joke in front of a bunch of Little Leaguers.
Because OMG SO HARD. (Sorry. Made one anyway.)


All I know about this last one is "they asked for skulls," so for maximum funsies, lets assume a goth teen asked for this awesome skull cake:


...but then her well-meaning but slightly clueless parents brought this to the party instead:

"Look, honey, skulls! Just like you asked!"


"Do you want to invite your little friends over for cake now?"



Thanks to Michelle R., Kourtney G., & Marick S. for reminding us all of that time our parents did that thing that scarred us forever, but that we can laugh about now, because *OUR* parents couldn't post about it on Facebook. MWAHAHAAAAA.

When July Is Forthcoming

It's America's birthday, e'erbody!

Don't you hate it when you get to the party and/or bakery and everyone's started drinking without you?


Of course, most folks know today simply as:

4th July of.

Or July 4th of.

Your choice.


Yes, friends, today is a day to salute all nations, but mostly America. Preferably with a glorious three-hour finale, condensed into a minute and a half. (OBSCURE MUPPET JOKE HEYOOOO)

"You are all WEIRDOS."


Today is a day of fireworks, fun, and patriotic grilled meat... um... cakes. Obviously.

"You know what this 4th of July sh*t grill needs? A FUZZY PURPLE BORDER HEYOOOO!"
- a drunk baker, probably

(John: "You already used the 'heyooo' thing, take that out."
John: "...."
Me: "Pass me my drink, farm boy. HEYOOOOO."
John: "No. You've had enough tea."
John: "I've quit better jobs than this.")


So whatever you're up to today, folks, just remember:
Today is also the day we celebrate the great Will Smith movie.

Just as soon as we remember how to spell it.


Thanks to Matthew C., Julie A., Samantha W., Katie S., & Ashleigh G. for reminding me what movie to watch tonight. HEYOOOOO.
