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? ;)

Lose Or Draw: There Is No "Win"

You've heard of "Win, Lose, or Draw?" Well, I think I found the cake version:

Write, Wreck, or Win!

Ok, so it doesn't have the same ring to it, but allow me to demonstrate.








Pretty fun, right?

Let's try another one.








Ok, last one:



(It was for a teacher, so they wanted a picture of an apple.)



(Don't worry, lady apple.
He's not happy to see you.
It's a worm.)



I mean that in the purely ironic sense, of course.


And finally, a helpful reminder that it's not just bakers:

Now that's a "win."

Is it bad that I snickered at the sticker on the apples that says "Best Creme"?

I'll bet it is. I'll bet. it. is.

Of the cakes are funny, but the "Logo here" just makes my graphic designer heart cry!

You're seems a really difficult word for so many cake wreckers so I am truly amazed that the last cookie cake one spelled that correctly......only to fail miserably on the rest.

I don't know, that carnivorous apple cake gives me the creeps. Looks like there's a paw trying to get out of Hannibal's mouth there. And the lady apple looks properly horrified.
RUN, "best creme" lady!

Yeah, but since Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin named their daughter Apple, everything is mixed up for the poor cake decorators…

Since you brought up restaurant menus, years ago in Southwest Denver a Chinese restaurant opened on Coal Mine Road. The menus were apparently ordered over the phone, and read "Cora Mine Dragon". Good food, though, and going there always made us smile.

Those smiley face cookies are actually kind of awesome. Just imagine them making that face after someone's taken a bite out of one.

I have been to the Restaurant Logo Here. The deep-fried words are out of this world.

I'm confused (a natural state for me, on THIS site). Number 4: Is that sign-like thing supposed to be a card-???-because it looks kind of like an envelope. But who squirts chocolate sauce all over an envelope? HERE'S an idea! Sweep all of the other fruity flotsam off the top, line up a bunch of little "hot-wheel-type" cars in neat rows facing the "card", and then redo the writing to read "Now Playing! Aunty Kelly's Belated Birthday! With bonus feature:(Smiley Face)" ! Ta-da !? /Voila! It's a drive-in theater cake!...?....can I get my money back?

Bwah! Jen! "Insert thanks line here!" I lurve you!

@John, that's awesome! I want to go to Cora Mine Dragon!

The smiley face cookies look yummy. I wish I had about three right now. Mmmmmm.

But, @Tachybaptus, I hear their parboiled participles are only subpar.

May 7, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterJodi

I wouldn't be smiling either. It's not like anyone is going to buy one to take to a Cookies Are Friends Not Food meeting.

May 7, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterJust Andrea

I don't know, I kinda think the Best Creme sticker should be on the boy apple. Amiright?

May 7, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterAngie

I would bet money that the restaurant error isn't actually a printing error, but just a cheapskate restaurant owner using a sample.

May 7, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterMickymse

The white thing that looks like a card is probably white chocolate. It's done pretty commonly in European (and european style) bakeries. they've done something similar on cake 1.

However, still need eye bleach from the cake from two days ago.

Whew I can't stop giggling at the angry smiley face cookies lmao. That was a lovely ending to my birthday thank you for the great laugh. :D

May 8, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterArlene Marie

Hahahahaha! My hubby says those are "constipation-face cookies". He is sitting here going, " I'd like a dozen constipation a face cookies, please. Can you put them in a box and write Dulcolax on the box? Never mind, I'll l write it - chances are you'll misspell it..."

May 8, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterElizabeth A.

If they'd put x's for eyes on the "smilies" they could almost pass for Nirvana cookies, lol.

May 10, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterNerfbomb

Those two apples make me giggle.
Best creme? As opposed to worst creme?
