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? ;)

Some of my favorite new submissions this week:


Here's a late Valentine's submission that TRUMPS all others:

Hmm. I'm pretty sure every joke I could make here will get me in trouble.


This is my face right now:

Also, seriously, bakers, what is the DEAL with your Ninja Turtle cakes? 0.o



If you think about it, a baby shower IS reaping what you sow...

Though doesn't that make this more appropriate for the baby's dad?

(Oooh, can we swap out "baby daddy" for "baby sower?" That is SO MUCH BETTER, you guys.
Assuming you're into plant puns. Which, c'mon, who isn't?)



More Words That Don't Mean What Bakers Think They Mean:

Bakers, you keep using that word.

Stop it.



Jenn's office ordered a cookie cake for their new employees, and asked the bakery to write, "Welcome, Noobs!" on it.

They got this:

Oh, wow - I just realized "welcome" is misspelled, too.

So... the only word they got right... is the one that wasn't supposed to be there.

Bravo, bakers. BRAVO.


Thanks to Maria C., Gary R., Yinner, Denise K., & Jenn for proving her bakers really are comma noobs.

Now, we just need to think of a reasonable definition for 'noovs'...
Also, that first one, seriously? That poor cookie.

That last one.....I cannot understand how it happens O_O perfect GIF usage.

My 4-yr-old: "Mommy, is that a submarine cake? That's so silly!"

Bakers, when a 4-yr-old thinks your TMNT cake is a submarine, you're doing it wrong.

Leonardo looks more like the Planet Express spaceship.

I snorted coffee out my nose with that trump cookie. You'd think I'd have learned by now not to eat/drink while reading this blog! I actually kind of like that Trump cookie. I can hear him now:
"Let me tell ya, let me tell ya something: I love bakers. I love bakers. And I do very well with bakers. This cookie is the best cookie you will ever find in the whole world...!"

I don't get the baby shower cake. Like, at all.

"Noovs" must have been a phone order. I have a "v" in my last name and after having it show up as a "b" on my library card, I'm very careful to specify "V, as in Victor." Guess it's just as important to specify "B, as in baker", although let's be honest, they're just going to write that whole thing out and then misspell baker. . .

Oh, FABULOUS! A Trump-Nixon mash-up on that first one! It's a great time to be alive.

March 4, 2016 | Unregistered Commenters.marie

I have one word for these: FAIL.
Two words for the last one: EPIC FAIL.
That is all.

Oh yeah, the Trump cookie. My husband does a fabulous Trump imitation. Its so easy anyone can do it. Come on, give it a try! ""Let me tell ya something: I love bakers. Bakers love me. I've hired plenty of bakers. I have bakers working for me. They love me. I have the best bakers in the world. No one has better bakers than me. My bakers are the best, most happiest bakers ever."
(See how easy that was? But you gotta do the voice, too. My husband can do it -- I can't.)

I thought for sure that the last cake was going to say "Welcome, boobs."

March 4, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterNYCGirl

That cookie cake is actually pretty impressive, to be honest. And S. Marie is correct - a Nixon-Trump mashup, with Gingersnap a close second.
But the baby "sower" cake. Seriously, who cuts a cake that way? The lines were put on before the writing; maybe it's supposed to be a fan?

The tag says: "Ombre cake white eight in two layer", right?
I do not see ombre, white, two layers, or eight of anything. Are we sure there's cake under there?

March 5, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterAA

I don't think most people have a clue what 'ombre' means. As a cake decorator I've had customers come in and tell me they want their cake to be 'ombre' and then they say one row red, one dark blue and then the top dark green. I've had to explain that's not ombre that's just different color rosettes going around your cake. It's sad.

GingerSnap and Maureen S. are ON POINT!
Seriously, that Trump cookie just made my day.

March 5, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterEmma

You know, I'm kinda impressed that they wrote "comma" instead of "coma". Soooo... gotta give them some credit on that. Lol.

March 5, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterCandace

Actually, that IS what "ombre" means. Also a card game, but most often used to mean "shading from light to dark". An ugly cake--sorta leans to one side--but "ombre" is correct.

March 5, 2016 | Unregistered Commenterjoybeth

The baby sower cake is left over from Halloween. The line are the beginning of the spider web and the red rose covers up the spot where the spider was supposed to sit. The first one is just terrifying....waay too many political pitfalls in that one!

March 5, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterKyle

Leave the cakes. Take the Jean Luc.........=^-.-^=

Is anyone else seeing gold earrings on Donald Trump? I just can't stop seeing those earrings even though I know it's supposed to be his hair...

March 5, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterAnise

That last cookie cake. Stupid, Stupid, STUPID. Just plain stupid and nothing else but STUPID. A comet needs to wipe us all out,

March 6, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterAisha

That white baby shower one is not bad, honestly. If they were in a hurry and all hungry they may not have even noticed it.

March 6, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterBea

HOW? HOW are they cake?? Somebody tell me how that make up can be CAKE!!!

March 6, 2016 | Unregistered Commenterguest

That first cake made me laugh so hard - perfect!

But my favorite new word is "noovs".
