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? ;)

And Boobie, When You Call Me, You Can Call Me Hell

It's Celebrate Your Name Week, so I'm giving the gift of fabulous new nicknames! (This is part 2, click here for part 1.)

Another 3-letter-name goes up in flames:

(Aw, Hal.)


Let's see if you can guess the rest without any help:


"The 'N' is silent."


Whether you're Stephen with a 'ph' or Steven with a 'v,' I've got you covered:

It's pronounced "Stiv-FEN."
'Cuz you put the emPHAsis on the wrong sylLAble.


Oh, that's Rich.


If ever a wreck deserved "congram," it's this one.


Remember: Always be yourself - unless you can be Batman. Then be Batman.

Especially if you're this guy.

(Before you yell at me, the name IS misspelled.)


And now, to show off my 'Street cred:

Mana Mana
Do DOO de doo-doo
Mana Mana
Mana Mana
De DOO de doo-doo, de doo-doo, de doo-doo



Sure, I know it's tough having your own birthday cake misspelled, but hey, even celebrities aren't immune! Case in point; here's comedian Jim Gaffigan's birthday cake:

Or, as I like to call him, The Big D-gim.


Thanks to Hal B., Meagan C., Monica S., Sarah K., Patricia S., Melene H., Rachel J., Robyn R., Sam H., Sharon W., & Desay for telling the Big D-gim that the Grand Jennizzle says "howdy."

This Tuesday Isn't Fat, It's Fluffy

Egads, you guys, I almost forgot today was Mardi Gras!!

Thank goodness the wreckerators out there have given us so many helpful reminders. You know, like all the beads:

("The better to hide our wrecks with, my dear!")


...and the toxic mold rings:

(Listen closely, and you can actually hear the dough screaming.)


Not to mention the plethora of choking hazards:


...the terrifying non-sequiturs:

(Give it up, Lady Cassandra - we know it's you!)


...and, of course, the dessert Mardi Gras is most famous for:

The colossal caramel apple pie.

Topped with a tiny plastic Baby Jesus.

Giving you the finger.


And, hey, if that doesn't say "Happy Marti Gras !", then this cake does:

So there.


Many Mardi Gras thanks to Naomi S., Janet, Mike R., Laurie E., Debbi P., & Andrew G., who get ALL the beads - once they flash me their... pearly whites.

And by "pearly whites"I mean "boobs." You, too, fellas!
