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 Future's So Brite...

With graduation season over, you might be tempted to revel in the heady hopes of a brighter tomorrow, what with all these freshly educated, newly degreed youngins descending upon our workforce and all.

I'm here to fix all that.

This cake was supposed to say - I kid you not - "It's a girl."

That apostrophe placement will be haunting my dreams tonight.


Of course, it's also possible to get the spelling and punctuation perfect, while still completely missing the point:

Granted, this could be a "he said, she said" issue.

Hey, remember when preschoolers were taught to put the square blocks in the square holes, and the round blocks in the round holes?

Do they not do that anymore?

For some reason I'm getting the feeling this is supposed to be a base"ball." Odd.

And remember that toy with the pull string that told you what the dog says?

Do they not have those anymore, either?

Wait. Is that a cat?

Ok, now I'm really confused.

Still, I guess we can take comfort in knowing that these wreckerators won't always be wreckerators:

Eventually they'll get promoted to management.

Thanks to Becky A., Jane R., Stacey S., Jennifer V., & Alissa P., who want to ask that employee in the background, "Hey, why the long face?"

Literally In A Class All Their Own

It's a good thing graduation season is winding down, guys; I think the nation's Wreckerators need a little break:

I honestly thought this was a tribute cake for a CW fan.

It wasn't.

And if you're skeptical, allow me to show you this next gem:

I know I should be focusing on "where hat would be," but really I just want to know what the squiggle under Connor's name is. A stethoscope? A funky P? Or - for a little irony - is that where the hat should be?

Or how about this one?

I'll give you two guesses what the "junior league logo" looks like.

This last one is a little hard to read, so I'll transcribe it below:

1st line: Help, I'm stuck in a wreckery.

2nd line: No, seriously. Get me out of here.

3rd line: [indecipherable sobbing]

Thanks to Nick L., C.S., Shannon D., & Tanya G., who think that last baker needs to pull herself together; she's gone all to pieces!
