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? ;)

Sunday Sweets: Boredom Busters 

Bored? How can you possibly be bored? School's only been out three weeks!

Well, why don't you read a book?

(By Charm City Cakes)

You said you wanted to finish the Harry Potter series this summer. You can borrow my copies.

(Spoiler alert: Voldemort did it.)

(I am SO funny.)


Weren't there some songs you wanted to download? You could do that.

(By Queen City Bake Shop)

Oh, you already did?

Well, we could play Scrabble.

(Submitted by Ainsley B., and made by Cake Central user ToniRod)

No, I don't always win. Besides, everybody knows "syzygy" is a word.


Well, do you want to go on a bike ride?

(By ozcake) 

They're both flat? Uh, when were you going to tell us?

OK. Fine. Ummm, do you want to help me make cookies?

(By Creative Cakes by Julie)

No, sorry, we're out of chocolate chips.

Oh, I know, why don't you call some friends and go swimming?

(By Short and Sweets)


You could all have a picnic in the backyard afterwards,

(By My Two Sweetie Pies)

...and then we could set up a tent and you can have a sleepover.

(By Hilary Rose Cupcakes)

I'm sure you didn't actually hear wolves howling last night. It was the neighbor's dog. And the backyard is fenced.

No? Well, what about a movie? Does a movie sound good?

(By Cakes by Roselyn)

No, it has to be rated PG. We talked about this...

Look, I've given you a lot of fun options, and you've said no to all of them. I guess I can always find you some chores to do! I need help transplanting those seedlings.

(Submitted by Danette T., "sprout" toppers made by mimicafe Union)

And when's the last time you cleaned your room?

(By Mary Lazarides)

Well, at least make the bed. And see if you can find the dog's leash. And, Sweetie, Christmas was six months ago. Maybe it's time to put away the reinbear?

Sweetie? Where are y...?

Are you playing Minecraft again?

(By Sweet Disposition Cakes)

(That's 1,025 individually placed squares. WOW.)

Ok, but just thirty minutes. Then, your room!

Sunday Sweets: Dad's Day

Dad, you work so hard the whole year through,

today, let's make it up to you!

Kick up your feet, turn off your phone,

 (By Just a Bite by Vivi)

... and settle in upon your throne.

Here's the extra special kicker,

(By Melanie of Ph.D.-Serts Cakes)

... today you can control the clicker!


And I pinky-promise I'll keep quiet,

(Submitted by Ty L., made by Paul's Creative Cakes)

... if you, say, "forget" your diet.


So have a cold one, or two, or three!

(Sub'd by Jamie M., made by Rouvelee's Creations - and yes, it's ALL edible!)


Then pop in your favorite DVD,

(By Robin of Gateaux Inc)

Light up that fancy old cigar,

Pssst, mind if I borrow your car?

(By Avalon Cakes)

Just kidding! I mean, I washed your car!

 I also organized your tools.

About that ...

uh, I hope we're cool.


So don't worry 'bout a single chore,

 (By CakeFella)

Just tell me how to start the mower?


And while we're at it, tell me more

About your youth, and days of yore. 

About that one amazing day:


(By Helen of cakejoy)

About the one that got away!


'Cuz Dad, I think you're super great.

Without you, life would be cut-rate.


I wish I could show my appreciation,

with a motorcycle, or a great vacation.

But I hope you'll like this shirt and tie,

(Sub'd by Christina W., made by Esperanza [no other info listed, pic found here.])

And know that you're my favorite guy.


So I guess that all there's left to say,

is have an awesome Father's Day!
