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? ;)

By Popular Demand: More Wreckwear!

Because I love you guys, and you asked for it:

Here's the back:
And while I'm at it, check out this hilarious little number Erin Lusk of The Cupcake Attitude whipped up:

Ah, it doesn't get any better than passive-aggressive baked goods. Be sure to check out Erin's site for more cute designs like this.

And naturally, I stuck it on a shirt:

I also added a new "I Want Sprinkles" design last week for myself:

(The site address is on the back.)

Which looks great on an apron:

And lastly, partly because I thought it was fun, and partly out of curiosity to see if anyone would actually ever purchase such a thing, I whipped up a Naked Mohawk-Baby Carrot Jockey tie:

If any of you actually buy and wear this thing, you must send me pictures. Seriously; that would just about make my day. ;)

You can click on any of the above pictures to go the corresponding Zazzle page, where you can tinker with colors and shirt styles to your heart's content. You could even buy the item in question, but I know that's just crazy talk, so I'll stop now.

If you have a design you'd like to see on a Cake Wrecks shirt, e-mail me! If I use it, I'll give you a shout-out here on the blog and link to your blog or website both here and on Zazzle.

In response to the tie: Father's Day *is* next month . . .

I have a feeling that the baby mohawk carrot jockey ties will soon be taking over the world!! Churches, corporations, offices- it's coming!! Grand prize is to find a cake decorator wearing one!!

May 5, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterEternal Lizdom

Ooh! The apron would make a great Mother's Day gift, and the shirt and tie would be excellent for Father's Day, hehehehe.

May 5, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterTheresaHPIR

i love the apron, but i think you need an alternative for the northeast region that says "i want jimmies". because in philly, they are jimmies, not sprinkles, dangit!

May 5, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterjoey

Wait, I'm confused. Where does the missing cupcake GO in the cupcake cake? There's not a place for it!

May 5, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

I was hoping Happy Falker Satherhood would make it in time for Father's Day! LOL!

May 5, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMegan

I'd totally buy the tie for my hubby but he says although he loves cake wrecks he'd never wear it the place he wears I am however thinking about buying the apron for my friend who can't get enough rainbow sprinkles.


May 5, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterrandom me

Best. Tie. EVAH!! If I were a guy I would TOTALLY wear that.

May 5, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterThe Paligos

"It's like a word journey." That will never get old. Love what you did with these!!

OMG. OMG. The naked mohawk baby carrot jockey is the best thing I have seen today.

May 5, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterenna.

I like the sprinkles one, cause even those who *gasp* haven't found CakeWrecks yet will enjoy it!

But mostly I just had to leave a comment 'cause the word verification is "lyzings" - which, of course, is a comment made by ME!

May 5, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterLyz

Happy Falker Satherhood is my new favorite holiday, greeting and personal motto.

Thank you, Cake Wrecks!


May 5, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Yes! I would buy two jimmies t-shirts, that's how much I love jimmies!

May 5, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

i can find someone to model the tie, and take a picture of it.. but you are gonna have tell me how to reach you

May 5, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Happy Falker Satherhood... bwah ha ha ha hahahahahaha.

May 5, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterStuffCooksWant

I want an 'It a gril" shirt!

May 5, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterRebekah

I *would* get the sprinkles shirt if there weren't ugly flowers on it that have nothing to do with sprinkles. Bad design.

May 5, 2009 | Unregistered Commentermeeshi

How about a mternity shirt with one of those hideous "belly cakes" on it? Perfect I say

May 5, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMrs. West

Did "Happy Falker Satherhood" actually appear on a cake? And if it did... can someone link to the entry? =)

May 5, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAndrew

Those are GREATNESS!

May 5, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterCourtney

Actually I really like the tie. Hmmmm Fathers day is relatively soon.

May 5, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterDani

ok dont want to be critical but next time i think you need to put all the images and wording a bit lower down i think they are a little high and my boobs will totally distort the image up that high.

Sorry dont mean to pick

May 5, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

My boyfriend really, really wants the tie. I may actually have to buy it for him.

May 5, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterChristine

Love to the third power the "Happy Falker Satherhood" (I so hope I spelled this right--please, please spelling Gods)



So why are the cupcakes out there so cranky? See:

May 5, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterTammy

This has totally made my week! The "Happy Falker Satherood" t-shirt is, truly, icing on the cake!

May 5, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

I have a blogger award for you. Stop by my blog and pick it up. Love your site!

May 5, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterKaren

I love that tie. The only problem is I don't know a single person (who I am close enough to to buy them something) who wears ties!!!

Do they print that image on fabric and then make the tie??? If so - I would totally buy some naked carrot-jockey fabric! I would make a dress out of it.

kinition: kin + fruition (e.g. "I just found out my brother loves ties. My plans of buying a naked-carrot jockey tie are finally coming to kinition!")

May 5, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterCassandra

falksatherhood is like pumping the icing with the keyboard. very klutzy fingers.

the tie with the baby shall give me nightmares...

May 5, 2009 | Unregistered CommentermizzyN

's it. I'm so buying that tie.

May 5, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterSpicy

Um. Meeshi... There is a sprinkles shirt with no flowers on it. It's been available for ages. The one with flowers is a new design.

And Andrew, "Happy Falker Satherhood" did appear on a cake. Yesterday.

May 5, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterFluffy Cow

Yup--perfect father's day presents! Shirt and the tie! (though I have to agree, I don't think my hubby will would wear naked babies to church either lol) Great wreck-wear!

May 6, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

I love that tie, for $15 maybe. Not for $32. And I would wear it, and color coordinate it, and send you a picture. But not for $32

May 6, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterDNfromMN

Oh my flippin lord that is hilarious... my husband NEEDS that shirt to add to his collection!!!!

May 6, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAmber Schmidt

That tie is awesome.

May 6, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMegan

I don't find the I Want Sprinkles thing funny anymore, since it's just quoting Angela from The Office.

May 6, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterNichole

Too, too awesome. Happy Falker Satherhood should be in a greeting card, too.

May 6, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterkgirl

Who's the guy in the Falker Satherhood shirt? Can I get HIM? :D

May 6, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMiranda

"ok dont want to be critical but next time i think you need to put all the images and wording a bit lower down i think they are a little high and my boobs will totally distort the image up that high.

Have a couple kids, Anonymous. Your boobs will be in just the right place to buy a t-shirt then.

Great job, Jen! The word journey cracks me up every time!

May 6, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMelinda

The tie looks like one of those pieces of art that if you stare at it long enough an imagine will pop out. I LOVE IT.

I'm thinking that's what my husband is getting for Father's day.

May 6, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterjenni

OMG, I am SO buying a BMCJ tie!

May 6, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterKashmir

I may get that tie for my friend's husband - he'd wear it!

May 6, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterNikki

I think you could have an entire holiday line of t-shirts. In the vein of the old navy holiday shirts... but these would be much more awesome!

any of those would be nice on a shirt...I love the wrecky holiday sayings for all the ones you have featured. I think it would be hilarious!

because I am a Disney expert and knew that was not ridiculous!

May 6, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterCarrie

I would love to wear your Cake Wrecks T-shirts but they don't come big enough...I would need a
4x or maybe a 5x. Come on now...don't forget about all us more "round" fans!!!

May 6, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

I wish I had a boyfriend so that I could buy him that tie to wear during one of our college formal dinners. That would be epic.

I'm actually tempted to buy the baby carrot jockey tie just because it's a baby carrot jockey tie.

May 6, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterFesoes

Actually, if they are from Columbia, MO someone might buy the tie. The Kewpie doll is the mascot of one of the local high schools. (Go Kewpies!)

May 6, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Okay, did anyone else notice that, as you scroll down on the screen, the carrot jockeys look like they're moving? Come on! Try it!! Just scroll up and down and watch!
