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? ;)

Also, some things are better gotten off your chest.


While others - such as missing limbs, sagging chests, and worryingly large necks - are best left unmentioned:

On the plus side, questions like "Where's the rest of her choker? Or her arm? Or her ear?" can help distract viewers from misspellings. Case in point: did you notice "bithday"?


Brenda S., Aaryn C., & Beth, these cakes are beautiful, no matter what they say.

To think, she swam all this way just to wish you aAAAAAUUUGHH!!

Well, I guess we should just try to make the best of things.

"Tale of cakey crime!


"Cruel as it can be!"
