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 Failure To Communicate, Vol. 472

The order form had a space for "message", so Alexandra R. wrote "Happy Birthday" beside it.

Yes, the bakery misspelled the completely unnecessary word... from their own form.


Hey, remember in grade school when everyone wrote stuff in bubble letters?

Yeah, neither does this baker:

For the record, Jodi wanted a #1, bubble style.


Kelley W. ordered a cake for her Harry Potter party.

Let's see if you can spot the problem:


I'm pretty sure Kristina's soccer team wasn't too pleased, either:


Rachel F. wanted a cowboy-themed cake - so I'd love to know what the bakery thought they heard:

If this starts a trend of Easter cakes with "Yee Haw!" on them, I want credit.


And finally, here's how to turn your office's March birthdays into an outdated meme:




Thanks to Alexandra R., Jodi S., Kelley W., Kristina V., Rachel F., & Anony M. for the much lolz.

Not So "Common" Now!

Common sense. Such a dictator, am I right?

Well, some bakers aren't going to take it anymore! Some bakers are like, "DOWN WITH COMMON SENSE! WE REFUSE TO BE COMMON *OR* SENSICAL!"

Except they yell it in their bathrooms, because they don't know any better.


Then they go to work and make cakes like this:

Which go over like a lead balloon.


Common sense says the odds of a couple celebrating the exact same date of birth - and providing a wedding photo for the cake - is FAR less likely than their celebrating a wedding anniversary.

So naturally:



Common sense also demands that you cut an edible image so all the words are visible.



And finally, and ironically the most common:

Rebecca in Red Frosting is feeling so left out right now.

So I guess she knows how Common Sense feels.


Happy Common Sense Day to Madeline S., Lori, Robin K., & Mary Lou, who suspect it's rapidly becoming more of an exclusive club.
