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? ;)

Some of my favorite new submissions this week:


Or as we like to call her, "Tripod."

(That was the most family-friendly joke I could come up with. HI, MOM.)


If you write online a lot, then this next one is for you.

The problem with ordering via e-mail:

Now, everyone laughing, go ahead and explain it to the rest of the class.


Sarah sent in her wedding cake as a "missed mark" wreck, but to be honest, I'm a lot more interested in her choice of table decor:

Please tell me you cut the cake with the Klingon bat'leth, Sarah. PLEASE.


Giving new meaning to the name "dump truck:"

What a load of... ooh, hey, icing!


"Uh, you guys, Jimmy's cake is a little... off... don't you think?"

"Well, we weren't going to say anything, but yeah."

"Think he knows?"



Before you ask, this kid's name was Finn. FINN.

[wincing] Oooh, not good.
I'm guessing Trey snapped this pic right before the cake was hit by lightning.


And while we're talking botched names, look what the baker did to poor Tucker:

(Seriously. HOW IS THAT A 'T'?!)

Do you frequently need to abandon your work for sudden emergencies?


Are your trips to the beach often cut short?


Are you perplexed by the constant trail of crap that follows where ever you go?

If the answer is yes then you may be suffering from Flotsampoowreckitis, or FPW, a common condition afflicting literally millions of plastic cake toys.

While there is no cure, FPW is nothing to be ashamed of! Why, just look at all these celebrity toys living loud and proud with THEIR frosted poop piles!

"I tell everyone it's the grease in 'greased Lightning.'"


"Then she was all, 'Can YOU say 'sexy?!'"


Even Merida knows being ashamed of FPW is just horse... rocks.

So brave.


So don't turn your back on Flotsampoowreckitis, flotsam!

Embrace it!


"Oooh, commmmfy."


Then you, too, can move on with your regular duties, knowing life won't pass you by!


So go on, cake flotsam: get out there, and embrace life to the fullest.

And just, uh, try to ignore all those giant turds beside you.


Thanks to Anony M., Laura N., Heidi T., Melissa C., Alex M., Miranda H., Cassandra M., Paula M., Amber G., and Chera D. , who are still giggling over "regular duties." (No? Just me?)
