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? ;)

Flotsam R Us

It has come to our attention that many bakers struggle with filling orders properly. That's why we here at Flotsam R Us offer a wide variety of attractive, low-cost, non-edible solutions for the professional bakery.

For example, we have a large selection of plastic "Happy Birthday" picks:

OR "Happy Birthday" plaques:

For bakers who prefer an airbrush, we also offer a 'Happy Birthday' stencil!

And just in time for grad season, we've got a brand new "Congrats, Grad" sticker in stock:

For your more artistically challenged bakers, we also offer plastic flotsam in the shape of musical notes...

... and stars!

Of course, training your bakers how to actually USE our products is completely up to you. So, uh...

Good luck with that.


Thanks to Emily H., Molly S., Angie M., Gina R., Amber C., Brittni J., & Uri S. for the flotsam flops.


All Hail The Pink King!

Ever write an I and a C so close together that they kind of look like the letter K?


Why do I ask?


 Oh, no particular reason.


Thanks to Allison E. for the royal screw-up. (And how do you figure the baker knew to use pink icing?)
