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? ;)

No Excuses? Here, Try These

Dear Jen,

Help! It's July and there are no good holidays coming up, plus no birthdays in my family, and I WANT CAKE. Can you help?

Dear Cakeless,

My dear wrecky minion, you've come to the right place. Fact is, there are lots of excuses for cake, if you only learn to celebrate the little things in life.

A few suggestions:


Depending on your fiber intake, I bet some of you could celebrate this EVERY day.


My '99 Nokia Still Works!

Leslie claims this was supposed to say "Old friends are the best." But think about it: can you play Candy Crush on your friends while you're pooping? NO YOU CANNOT.

I rest my case.


It Was Just a Heat Rash!

Time will tell.

(Actually, Rebecca tells me this was supposed to say "Baby." Is she telling the truth? Mmmm... PERHAPS.)


I'm A Pleasant Dining Companion!

Especially while eating cake.


That Thing Is Over!

SUCH a relief, am I right?


But maybe none of these apply to you, Cakeless.
In that case, here's one for just about everybody:

Not Dead Yet!

In fact, I think we should all congratulate each other for not being dead yet.

So, congratulations, guys.

And sorry, ghosts-with-internet-access.


Thanks to Alyssa V., Rebecca W., Leslie M., Emilie F., Scott D., & Kat R. for the perfect excuse.

Cake Wrecks Tells The Truth

In honor of Tell The Truth Day, here are 6 cakes droppin' some sugary truth bombs:

Ahhh, college.



Old enough to know that's not how you spell "you're!" Haha!


(Do the kids say "oh snap" anymore?)

(No? Rats.)

(... I AM old.)


If ever an occasion called for cake...

...I'm pretty sure this isn't it.


Everyone can relax!
Turns out Mr. "Dealth" was just delivering the cake.


The Thought Process of Someone Getting This Cake:

"Ohhh, those are supposed to be tools!"




Not really sure what this was supposed to say, but to be safe, let's all keep our phones away from Laura:

Thanks to Heidi C., Shelly W., Anneke D., Kevan H., Jacqui S., & Rachel C., who'd like us to remember that today is ALSO Forgiveness day. But don't push it, Laura.
