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? ;)

Tell Me What You Want, What You Really Really Want

Sometimes when a cake makes no sense, it's helpful to ask yourself, "What do you suppose the customer asked for?"

Insults 101: When calling a girl a dog, it's always helpful to be breed-specific.


(For what it's worth, I'm pretty sure that's not how Mrs. Hopperband spells her name.)

"Look, I just want what every girl wants for her birthday: a big- a$$ cake!"

Eh. [shrugging] As I'm sure every cake-loving girl would agree: close enough. Pass the forks!


Sometimes you just want a sugary baked good for no reason at all. And yet, without an inscription, what can Wreckerators wreck? That's why they're so adamant that your cake say something.

And that's also why we get Wrecks like these:

Give it a minute.

Covering All the Bases

Because you can never be too safe, that's why.



Famous for their Dance Dance Revolution play-offs...offs.





You tech guys know a PEBKAC when you see one, right?

That's "Problem Exists Between Keyboard And Cake."



By the way, here's a tip from a former tech support phone operator*: if you're ever told you have an I.D. ten T. error, get a second opinion. Unless, of course, you're using your CD-ROM tray as a cup holder or mouse as a foot pedal**. Then it's an accurate assessment.



* That would be me.

**Yes, it's happened.





Moving on...



If only this had said "Patti Love heart <3 you"...

then it still wouldn't have made any sense.





"Let's see...I could write 'Amanda' in the Happy Birthday bubble, OR..."





Poor Adamwithblueflowers. Grade school musta been murder.
