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? ;)

A Day Late And A Daddy Short


Where NO ONE

can spell "Father's day."




Will get HAMMERED.


To become




There WILL be puns.


There WILL be... wait, what?


But mostly...

There WILL be really...




Really bad ties.

Hope your Father's Day was awesome, everybody - or at least wrecky enough to laugh about in the future.

The Dad Head Cakes all look like they are suffering from Superfluous Cranial Genitalia Syndrome o.0

Remember that old Cat Stevens' song?

It's not time to make a change,
Just relax, take it easy.
You're still young, that's your fault,
There's so much you have to know.
Find a girl, settle down,
If you want you can marry.
Look at me, I am old, but I'm happy.

Here. Cake

Maybe the cake with the ice cream cone nose is supposed to suggest that Dad had to brown nose his boss for a promotion(?)

And perhaps "Father is only 1" is a passive-aggressive attack on Dad's maturity level.

The last tie cake totally reminds me of an adult toy.

However, I think the head cakes are kind of cute-at least the decorator tried to make each one unique and gave them all the correct facial features. Anatomical correctness is a rarity on this site.

"Happy FATERS Day"?!?
Sounds like a cake well suited for Eric Cartman!😜😝😁😞😋😆

#7 is a nice callback to Happy Falker Satherhood!
And I'm with @Rachelcrazymum on the disfigurement of the dad heads. Heh -- Dad heads!
And finally, I never knew a tie could look like genetalia, but #9 has shown me the light!

Turn the '1 Dad' cake upside down, and that's how you got here kid.

June 22, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterGeri

These are funny, but nothing will ever replace "Happy Falker Satherhood" in my heart.

Mater certissima, pater semper incertus (the mother's identity is always certain, the father's identity is always incertain)… and the probability of a cake wreck is always certain, no matter who the parents are.

Do you realize the last cake says HAPPY FATMERS DAY? snicker.

June 22, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterValarie

OMG!!! That last one says "White cupcakes for two." There are FOUR cupcakes. That means the serving size on cupcakes is TWO! I'm going to apply that guideline to my eating habits any chance I get. Thank you for posting this!

Yesterday I told wished my brother a Happy Falkersatherhood. He looked at me like I'd lost my mind.

Those cakes are an insult to dads

June 22, 2015 | Unregistered Commentermindy1

Of course, I had to read this in my head using this voice:

one of the best movie trailers ever made.

June 22, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterFM

#7 reminded me of Happy Falker Satherhood right away :-) And #3 is something I just can't un-see. Ouch!

June 22, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterChicago

I am so glad you told us that #9 was a tie. I couldn't figure out the gray bar 3/4 of the way down, and thought they'd blocked out someone's name. And the blue-and-green "unit" looks like someone with "the pox." That, and the fingers on the Dad Head faces (they are supposed to be ears, and heaven help us if you know anyone whose ears look like that!) will give me troubled dreams for weeks.

...and the cake's in the crater with a plastic spoon;
little boy's a Dead-Head, or will be, soon...
"When ya comin' home, Son?"
"I don't know when...
But you'll get a good tie, then, Dad...
You know you'll get a good tie, then."
(*sniff*-This one always makes me cry.)

the second cake isn't a wreck at all. That's a motorcycle logo and the HD in the middle is the brand. A lot of bikies ride Fat HD's.

I wasn't the only one who imagined Don La Fontaine's voice reading that post.

June 22, 2015 | Unregistered Commenterxevo

Does anyone else feel like playing a game of "Guess Who?" with the Dad head cakes?

...................................................Just me then?

June 22, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterTiffany

I want a Dead Head cake! I want a Dead Head cake! Oh...umm, I may have read the sign a bit to fast.

June 22, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterBluebonnet

The cake heads are awesome! There's even a Mythbuster in there!

June 22, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterLollerskate

That first one looked like happy fattys day lol. Wow. So many ways to read that wrong. As for the ice cream cone face one.. I cannot stop giggling. Thank you I so needed the laugh today.

June 23, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterArlene Marie

I guess the heads used to belong to the shirt and tie cakes

June 23, 2015 | Unregistered Commenterhannah

Sweet Jesus. That blue spotted "tie" looks like it is in the running for a PSA on safe sex and the consequences of no condom use! "Look Johnny what happens when you run with loose woman, your man bits turn blue and develope green gangernous sores". (You're welcome for that visual) The new and improved version of the Classic British Classic "Spotted Dick" (I kid you not it exists!)

OMG Cookie Puss! That's nightmare fuel from my childhood...

June 28, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterShanti

So, Dad Head cakes, bottom right; am I the only one who looked at that and went "Ooooh, look, a James Hetfield cake, it must be Metallica Day! Yay!" Anyone? Anybody at all? No? Just me, then... *insert blushing face icon here and slink away...*

June 30, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterDr Handle

To any tune you want:
I see a blob and some balloons
What is wrong with that word?
Is that a weird thing face?
Is he gonna break the word?
Why do we need to eat dads' heads?
Hat, cookie and a race, I think
What is that thing, why is it blue?
Wait huh? Thats a CCC
Just because its for dad, it ends up shaped like that...
