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 Dino Days Of "Bummer"


And this three is the number thou shalt bake.
(It is a nice three; I like the cake board especially.)


Now.... GO!

I mean, NOOOO!

Ok, enough Monty Python references.


Now on to the Firefly ones!

Curse your sudden but inevitable betrayal, bakers.



If you find yourself in need a gender reveal cake next Thanksgiving, then here's a cute option:

As a hardcore pun-lover, I'm digging how both "waddle" AND "wattle" could work here. (In fact, "wattle" would be better. Just sayin'.) Plus the blue and pink tail is fun.


But you know what's NOT fun?

When you ask a baker for that, and instead...

...get this.

Sad as that turkey is, I'm most outraged by the pun botchery. This is like the cake version of that relative who comments "I don't get it" on all your Facebook memes. "IT'S FUNNY BECAUSE THE DOG CAN'T SPELL, Aunt Claire. And looks surprised. See, it's a funny dog who can't spell and is surprised and OH NEVER MIND."

Peppa Porker

Meet Peppa Pig:

She's the star of a kid's show in Britain, and looks like a toddler's drawing of a pink hairdryer with ears - or an anatomically incorrect gallbladder.


Anyway, people send me pictures of Peppa cakes all the time, mostly because they can't believe this is how she's actually supposed to look:

Well, minus the melty black eyes, I mean.


And the melty, blood-red dress...




Anyway, with all these cakes coming in, imagine my delight when someone finally sent me a Peppa wreck that is actually wrecky in a non-melty way.

Not only that, you could say this wreck's a real porker:

Yessir, if you're craving sausage, then these cookies will hit the spot, IF you know what I mean. [wink wink]

See, I'm saying these cookies put the "oinks" in "boinks." [nudge nudge]

I'm saying these cookies take their ham with a side of jelly. [eyebrow waggle]

I'm saying this little piggy went to market, and totally looks like a floppy man-dong.


Uh... too much?


Thanks to Belinda B., Jessica H., Jo D., & J-La for the sooieeee(t) finds.
