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.

Top 13 Telephone Wrecks

There are literal wrecks ("Just write Happy Birthday on it,") and then there are the wrecks that literally suffer from a game of Telephone. And they're fabulous.


"Too Legit To Quit"


"Welcome Home"


"Happy Birthday, Cowgirl!"




"Gettin' hitched!" (for a wedding shower)


"Happy Hanukkah!"


"Happy Birthday Beth & Libby!"

(And to think she used to be the life of the party.)


"Bye, Evan!"


"For Our Fearless Leader"

(At hour 5, she turns into a whimpering puddle of goo.)


"You're an ace!"


Here they asked for a big mouse with some little mice around it:



While on this one they wanted "blue camo" - as in "camouflage."

Most recently, of course, there was that Obama/Llama fiasco. Heh.


And finally, my favorite:

"Don't Take No For An Answer!"

It says "Don't Techno For An Answer." Which is officially one of my favorite things ever. Because now I want to, dangit.

Random Person: "So Jen, are you coming to our baby shower? We're serving one of those hee-LARIOUS vagina cakes!"

Me: [puts on sunglasses] [cranks techno music] [moonwalks away]
