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? ;)

The Sign Post


Better watch out for this bakery, henchpersons:


I hear they'll hang you out to dry.




"An O you co-A WIN... " uh, some assorted scribbles.


Hey, uh, guys?


What's that tell you?

Now, tell me what the mystery blob with the vaguely butterfly-like thing on it is supposed to be, and we'll call it even.

The bakers wielding the pastry bags aren't the only culprits, though:


I've seen a lot of these cakes. They live up to their name.



Aw, now why is "home made" in quotes? From that gooey ooze dripping out the bottom I can tell it's JUST like "home made." (Love you, Mom!)






Personally I don't see how you can use a "thank you," no matter WHICH underwear it might belong to.


(Give it a minute.)

(Theeere it is.)

Hey, Melissa P., Jennifer D., April G., Dani, Kelsey H., & Claire M., there's your sign.

Directionally Challenged

What happened to these wrecks?


But I bet you can figure it out.







And now, your wrecky moment of Zen:

Dawn actually wanted a cake wreck for her friend's birthday, so she asked her bakery to misspell the name and write, "Hearts and sprinkles" on the edges - but with NO hearts or sprinkles on the cake. Instead, what did she get?

"Hearts and Sprinkles! They even spelled Lindsey's name right!," Dawn writes. "That should tell you just how rare and wonderful it is to get a Cake Wreck. You can't even order them!"

Nice try, Dawn, but this just goes to show: a determined wrecker can even wreck a wreck.


Thanks to Denise B., Jen J., Jennifer S., Lindsay F., Sarah F., Make A., and Dawn O. on top and underneat that, a big smiley face.
