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? ;)

International Failure Day Gets CAKE

Barb E. asked for Navy icing:

She got it.


Cindy M. just wanted the initial "G" for her 14-year-old daughter - but I guess that was TOO simple?


Jen and Pete asked the bakery to include paper plates and plastic silverware.


Pauline ordered a cake that said, "I hate you for leaving!"

...but sure, that's close enough.


Holli T. wanted the number 10 written as a number: "you know, with double digits."

Part of me hopes Alexis gets a great nickname outta this.



Charli C. made the mistake of telling her bakery who the cake was for:



And finally, Jared C. asked for rainbow sprinkles.

How do you mess up rainbow sprinkles?

Oh, like this:

Happy International Day For Failure, everybody!


Thanks to Barb E., Cindy M., Jen & Pete, Pauline R., Holli T., Charli C., & Jared C. for the head bangers.

Figure It Out

Wrecky minion Jennifer T. is no dummy; she knows that sometimes you just can't trust a bakery to decorate your kid's birthday cake properly.

So this year, Jennifer asked the decorator to not even try. "Please just leave room so I can add my own toy figures," she asked, confident that this plan would FINALLY foil the wreckerators.


"Leave room to figure!!!"

Ahhh, those wily wreckerators.


...and now there is no room. The irony. IT BURNS.
