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? ;)

My Funky Valentine

Have a special someone you want to impress this V day?

Then let these bakers teach you the language... of luuuuuurve.


On second thought, forget language.


Let's try some sexy symbolism instead. Mrowr.

Too sexy.


Too confusing.


Too serial-killer.


Aha! Just right!

Well, assuming you think love is a pile of... flower center.


I've heard Barry White is great for setting the mood.


To be fair, no one ever said what KIND of mood.


How about a gift?

Sure, they'll be picking fake fur fuzz out of their teeth for a while, but so worth it.


And hey, if all else fails:

Have some cookie cake.

I came of age in the days of Ballantine Beer and Barry White, Rocky Horror and Invented Spelling, hearty beef dinners and Wookiees, so these all work for me. Now excuse me while I attend to myne work.

Because if you're single, you need to be made aware!
I have found out just recently that Balentine's Day is being encouraged to be a national holiday. Apparently this is a thing.

Oh, Jodee! Has the babee arrived??

(2) Ballantine Beer was popular until it stopped being popular.
(3) The big mouth thing reminds me of Seymour from "Little Shop of Horrors".
(5) What were they thinking with the "heart-shaped" meat?? Is it a reach to picture it cooked, and possibly burnt/shriveled? Analogies abound!
(7)"Barry" looks more like Chewbacca to me, but hopefully others will see things even better/worse!
(8) The "Wild" one--could you maybe angle the photo just a little more, so that the glare that's on the lid completely blocks the image of fuzzy frosting? =^o.0^=

Cake #3....key to my heart? Maybe?

Glad I wasn't the only one who thought Barry White was a Wookie at first. Mrrrow.

Bring me that ribeye, baby, and I'm yours.

February 9, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterTricia L

At least everything was spelled right on Single Awareness Day :-)

February 9, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterAlison in Indiana

I think the fourth cake is supposed to be a key with a heart-shaped handle.

February 9, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterClassic Steve

I'm less disturbed by icing Barry White than I am about the superfluous comma.

February 9, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterSkatieYes

Ah, single awareness day. The day of my people. I've been single so long that they offered to make me their leader. If they had brought me cake, I might have accepted.

February 9, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterDegera

YAY! My submission made it!!! My husband is an Atkins Diet freak.... I took the photo of the MEAT Valentine!

Day. Made.

February 9, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterIrene A

That last one's perfect for the ones who are "Romantically Challenged" on V-Day.

February 9, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterBigg3469

Jen, you should add a "Random Post" button on the site!! That way people can see a funny post without having to work too hard (lol)

Happy Balentines Day!

Our youngest insisted upon calling it "ValentiMes" day. (She also had a friend named Donamick, for what it's worth.)

February 9, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterLady Anne

Does Barry White have a goiter?

February 9, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterMariaTeresa

That is why a box of chocolate is better

February 9, 2015 | Unregistered Commentermindy1

Balentine's (Ale) Day, huh? I didn't even know that stuff was still around.

As for the heart-shaped steak, cute, but what did they do with the chunks they hacked off to make it that shape? Stew meat?

February 9, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterMoxie Man

The "Barry White" made me spit out my coffee.
Thanks for the possible explanations of #4 which I thought was just some carelessly handled floral arrangement. "Sorry we bent the stems but here are dem flowers you ordered."

February 9, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterFM

@Alison in Indiana: Thank you, I couldn't read what it said, to me it looked like "Happy Single Anenomes Day" so I was a bit lost.

OMG, it's a steak in a "PANWOW"!!! ROFL!

I have not heard of Ballentine beer, but I HAVE heard of Ballentine's scotch...I think it may be a bargain brand, I don't know, I'm not really into the scotch.

But in all, there's at least a VARIETY of Love Wrecks from which to it can't be all I right???

February 9, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterVaBeach alemaP

I don't understand why it's labeled a "12ct cupcake cake" when it's so obviously a creampi oh.
Never mind.

February 9, 2015 | Unregistered Commenterkhereva

I read that last one as "Single Awesomeness day"... whoops

February 9, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterLexi

Glad I wasn't the only one to see those lips and think "Rocky Horror"! The perfect cake for the sweet transvestite in your life.

Nothing is romantic, though, as a cake that reminds you of a dead crooner. "Life is short, baby. Let's make sweet, sweet love before the Reaper find us. Awwwww, yeah!"

February 9, 2015 | Unregistered Commenterpikkewyntjie

Nothin' says lovin' like a big juicy red steak.

February 9, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterCarol

Barry White serenading his "darlin' I"... I think I saw that on Sesame Street once.

February 9, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterPocket

Barry's winking. Babe.

February 9, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterKnittedbooties

SuBee, No babee yet! My poor girl is so miserable. Maybe I should get her a cake! But not that Balentine's Day thing because all that blue could cause a whole host of other problems!

February 9, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterJodee

These were all fun!! xo

February 9, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterCatherine

Lmao. I do think those heart shaped steaks are interesting though. At least you can't wreck those unless you burn them. So far no vd cakes either yay lol. Though it is still early.

February 10, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterArlene Marie

Oh my goodness, this morning I was just listening to a few of Barry White's songs like "The Secret Garden" and "Practice What You Preach" (which are both very much happy time songs and I'm single and was working at the time) and then I come across the hideous Barry cake thing this evening... Is this some sort of message beyond the grave from him to only listen to songs like that in romantic situations??

February 10, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterJay

I would rather have one of those steaks than any of the wrecky cakes. And when did Single Awareness Day become a thing? Our local hardware store invited people in to purchase gifts for Single Awareness Day. They say the produce section is the place to find a date. Perhaps it's really the hardware store! Oh, and I'm with SuBee: Long live the 70s! Barry-bacca looks like the caveman on the insurance commercials.

February 10, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterNobodee Home

Well I bet whoever got that Barry White cake was charmed right out of her... socks. And you're all just jealous.

February 10, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterSally Jo

Watch "Tak the Hideous New Girl" episode of "Invader Zim," and you'll get why the meat is cut into heart shapes right away.

February 10, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterSally Jo

Kudos! You are so funny! The cakes wouldn't be half as funny without your commentary and tale-spinning.

February 10, 2015 | Unregistered Commentermary fisher

What happened to poor Barry's right eye? And why did someone take a dump in the middle of the cake above that one?
