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? ;)

Name That Name!

Kids these days, with their funky names and their extra weird spellings:

I bet this gets confusing around other holidays.


I hear Lt. Pink really likes light pink icing:



Oh, great, now ALL the kids will want parentheses in their names:



Is there a Doctor in the house?

Because only he would have time for this.


And c'mon, this is just ridiculous:

Who names their kid "Janey?"


Thanks to Catherine G., Stephanie T., Elizabeth B., Priscilla C., & Mary G., who know a rose by any other name... can be pretty dang funny.

And I though "Janey" was a nickname for Jane!

Strangely, the last one sounded like a cheer in my head:

You shouldn't make fun of Janey's name. I hear she's got a gun.

No, that's the first baseman's cake, not the Doctor's.

Actually, (girl) is a very popular name in Madagascar. And I once had a good friend named Birthday.

Thanks for the giggles on MY birthday :D

So, Mr. Pink got away with the diamonds, joined the military, and has risen to the rank of Lieutenant. I was always rooting for him!

I really like the writing style on Who's cake. That cake must be an inside joke to someone.

I spent a moment or five peering at the "Happy Birthday Who?" cake wondering why there was an "and" symbol before the "Who." Then it finally dawned on me that it was supposed to be part of the "B."

Birthday Happy Candles and Janey makes total the same universe where all of my missing socks go!

@jbrecken ~ Thanks for the unintentional earworm! Nicely done!

@SuBee ~ I have a cheerleader outfit way in the back of my closet. You wanna borrow it?

I can only hope there's a Lieutenant Pink in the military who one day gets a cake just like the one for "Lt Pink" :)

March 12, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterBeth

Hell yeah, Jodee!!

Happy Birthday, Mindy1! And Porn, thanks for the giggles.

I heard Lt. Pink's name was actually Rupert, although lately he goes by Danny.

I'm not sure Who told me about it, but it was quite a tale.

I taught a boy named Pink years ago. His father's name was also Pink. It was a month before I realized Pink was a boy. It was 7th grade and he was tiny for a 7th grade boy. I still wonder how that kid turned out!

I love how much thought and care went into the script of the Who cake - almost as if whoever ordered the cake was supposed to call and tell the baker the name of the recipient. I can envision a frustrated baker trying to prove the point, that they could have done a great job with the name - and were willing to take the time to do it - if only the client had cared enough to give them the name.

Maybe Danny Pink got promoted?

Wreck # 1: A short time ago, in a bakery far, far away...

Also, I believe the name is pronounced "BirthDAY"

@Jodi: I have to admit, I did the same thing.

Whoa! That last wreck, I think even the Mad Hatter would find that a bit on the crazy side.

My mom's name is Janey (she hates it) and my married surname is Pink. I'm a colonel, though

March 12, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterMs. Pink

If you look closer I think its supposed to be Jamey.

March 12, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterMatt

#1 is actually meant to celebrate the invention of the birthday, the baker thought a cake saying "Happy Anniversary Birthday" would've been too confusing.

#2 "Lt. Pink"....and yet neither the cake nor the letters are; oh, the irony!

Well, at least all the instances of "birthday" are spelled correctly!

Oh man poor Janey. She probably would get her gun if she saw that cake lmao. Great now Aerosmith is stuck in my head. Yay to the wreckerators.

March 13, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterArlene Marie

I had a friend named Candice who we called "Candles" because someone derped trying to say her name and it stuck.

March 18, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterRei

LOVE LOVE LOVE all the Danny Pink references!!!

March 27, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterCaitlin

okay...but the "who" piping skills are absolutely insane. My normal handwriting isn't like that. My normal handwriting is barely legible. I give mad props kind of to that baker.
