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? ;)

Ahhh, I think we've cracked the code!


But my favorite belongs to Kate and Lilly, who were celebrating their victories in a local Spelling Bee.

Their parents asked the bakery to add some little flying bees around the cake for decoration... and OH YES THIS HAPPENED:

Spelling B's?

Well, at least they're consistent.

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And finally, here's how to turn your office's March birthdays into an outdated meme: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