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? ;)

Don't Mess With The Marines OR Their Cakes

CW reader Joe's sister-in-law brought this picture in to her bakery:

They promised her an exact match.


Which was KIND of accurate?

Yeah. Kind of.


On the plus side, this gives me a great idea for the "home-cooked meal" John requested for dinner!

That'll be $35.99, sweetie.


Thanks to Joe B. for getting the picture.

Good Luck Wrecking The Castle!

Joanna H. ordered this cake for her 30th birthday:

The horse shoe is for luck.




Here's what Joanna got instead:

Insert "the trots" joke here. BAHAA TOILET HUMOR.


Whitney M. wanted a cake that looked like Neuschwanstein castle for her husband's 30th birthday.

Here's a picture of the castle for reference:

Ha! Come on, now, you'd have to pay someone at least four hundred bucks for a cake like tha...

"I paid $400 for this cake," Whitney writes, "plus $100 for delivery!!!!!!"

Oh. Well, ok, then. Um...



And finally, here's the cake Terrisa K. ordered for her wedding:

So, ya know, that's gonna end well.


She writes: "I didn't see the cake until I was actually walking down the aisle, whispering to my dad, 'is that my f***ing cake?!'"

Yes, Terrisa. Yes, it is.


Thanks to Joanna H., Whitney M., & Terrisa K. for showing us what's black and white and wrecked all over.
