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 Future's So Bright..

If the current state of bakery (il)literacy has you down, then consider this: Right now thousands and thousands of new graduates are flooding the workforce, bringing with them all the knowledge, skill, and personal communications excellence that the American educational system has to offer.

Tissue?

Missy F., once you realize this is a CCC [haaaauuu-patooey!], and that it's depicting an apple being devoured by maggots, suddenly the "daz" thing seems that much more tragic.

I'm sensing some confusion, Stephanie G., and it's coming from this direction:

Ah, I see someone took my "When in doubt, scream it" advice to heart! And I like how s/he covered all the bases with that comma/exclamation mark combo.

Libby B. assures me there's a misspelling in here somewhere...

...but looking at that writing makes my eyes feel like they're careening out of control on an oil slick. Ow.

Mercedes W., I was with you until "proud":


We've already seen congratulations/graduation spelling mix-ups, but here Shelby found a mix-up of the actual words:

As you can see, the "n" is so embarrassed he's making a break for it.

Jess S., don't you just hate letters that look the same upside down as right side up? Like H, I, & O?

If only there were some way to know which way was up when you put them all together! Curse you, you vile deceivers of the alphabet! Curse... you!

Oh, and S! S is another one!

'Course, the school logo COULD have been a tick, right, Jade R.?

Gimmie a 'T'!
T!
Gimmie an "Icks"!
ICKS!
What's that spell?
TICKS!
Say it again!
TICKS!
[flourishing red pom-poms]
Yeah, we ain't yo' momma, ain't yo bud,
All we do is suck yo' blood!
Go Ticks! Woo!! Go Ticks!

Graduate! Celebrate! "Decorate!"

If you're still planning a party for the graduate in your life, then these bakeries would like you to know that they are ready and willing to provide a whole host of graduation-appropriate cake designs...

On Styrofoam.

Sure, it tends to stick in the molars a bit, but it's extremely low in fat.

NOTE TO BAKERS: Icing tends to slide off of Styrofoam when displayed at an angle.

NOTE TO CUSTOMERS: Regard all cakes stored flat with extreme suspicion from now on.

If for some reason you feel compelled to have a photo of your grad on the cake, then this bakery obliges with either a traditional, "boring," photo, or the hip new "green-out silhouette" option:


Also great for grads in the Witness Protection Program!

And for those customers who may become confused, thinking they have to purchase a cake with someone else's photo on it, this bakery provides a helpful clarification:

Congrats! You spelled "your" wrong!

But suppose your grad is spiritually inclined? How do you tastefully incorporate his or her religious views into a graduation cake? Well, this bakery shows us how...

...not to do it.


And lastly, this bakery wants you to send your graduate a really heartfelt message.


Specifically: "Your face looks like a butt."

Oh, and "your cap is ridiculous, with its teensy little robot arm."

Victoria W., Maya J., Denise R., Leanna P., and Patricia B., "you're thanks here."
