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? ;)

New Year's Evolution

New Year's Eve, 3PM:

"Ermagosh, Becky, tonight is going to be SO FUN."


New Year's Eve, 8PM: 



New Year's Eve, 10PM:



New Year's Day, 12:05AM:

[singing] "May OLD reclaim tests BE for GOD, and HAVE her brought to...



New Year's Day, 12:30AM:

[rolling on floor] "I'm going to THROW UP, and then I'm gonna DIE!"


This Morning:

Happy New Year, everyone. I recommend coffee. And a mop.


Thanks to Anne B., Mary Beth H., Jenn K., ZC, Bethany G., & Mathea T., who's pretty sure that pile came from the other end, but how often do I get to use Grinch quotes in here? NOT ENOUGH, that's how many.


Thank you for using our Amazon links to shop! USA, UK, Canada.

Here's to a new year filled with more laughs and thoughts from the CakeWrecks family.... Great start to 2015.

Thanks for all you do (Jen, John, Sharon, the Wreckies, and all the behind the scenes people that we don't know about)!

Yes; this one needed a soundtrack. My pick was Queen's "Another One Bites the Dust". (Trust me.)=^-.-^=

While these are definitely wrecks, (I especially like how they managed to work that condensation into the theme), they are also kind of adorable. Except that last one. That one just brings back too many bad memories...

Happy New Year!

My New Year's resolution is 1980 x 1310, thank you very much. But may your New Year rock!

Okay, I admit it: I would totally buy that first one, if the price and sell-by date were right. Looks like it auditioned unsuccessfully as an extra on Spongebob. Also, all those bug-eyed, brightly colored mop head cakes that show up here routinely? Y'know, the ones which look like limbless versions of the French fry-loving "goblins" associated with a certain (in)famous fast food chain? I love those, too.

Thus, I accomplish my one and only New Years Resolution, which is to be more honest with myself and others. Whew! That was easier than I thought it would be. ;)

I keep forgetting that seeing pink elephants because your drunk is a thing. Or was in cartoons anyways. I was so confused. :p

...and a GIANORMUS bowl of Menudo with oregano and onions! Happy 2015!!

@ Mel the one quote "I'm going to throw up then I'm going to die" was from the 2000 movie version of How The Grinch Stole Christmas where The Grinch and Max was careening out of control on the ├╝ber powerful jet powered sleigh that he created with junk from Whoville.

I totally read the first one in LSP's voice.
Great post & Happy New Year everyone. Woohoo!

Wondered what the first post of this year would be. It did not disappoint lol. Drunken elephant things everywhere I look..scary. Better than dead drunken clowns I suppose.

OMG I just choked on a fruit loop reading your commentary for these cakes. My 2 year old grandson had to give me the heimlich!
