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? ;)

We've got a triple-hitter today, minions: not only is it No Housework Day (woo!), it's also National Beer Day (hoo!) AND International Beaver Day!!



OK, but that still means we can get sloshed on thrones of dirty laundry, right? Beavers optional*.

(*Beavers Optional is the name of my Damn Yankees cover band.)

Also, cider beers count, right? Because I don't really like the taste of beer.

Oops, I'm supposed to be showing you cakes, huh?

It's a turtle.



While I was looking up what crazy holidays we could celebrate today, I also discovered it's Bat Appreciation Week:

Batman: "He'll never see me."


AND it's International Twit Award Month.

Now, I know it's still early in the month, but I'm callin' it:

This baker wins.


And finally, allow me to send you off to the weekend with my own holiday, which I've decided to call the Day Of Being Thankful This Sign On The Card Swiper Is Spaced Properly:

Give it a minute.

You know, to see the funny thing, not to... um... hoo boy... uh, LOOK! Over there! [points] [runs off]


Thanks to Dianne W., Laura H., Paula S., Dustin O., & Stepanie H. for proving the penis mightier.

Mightier than the penis

I'm confused by the turtle. Is it chocolate or is it yellow???

(It has the stickers of both things.)

So, when I first read this, I saw "Intentional Beaver Day." This led to great confusion and a bit of merriment.

That's a GREAT minion! Take a photo from the front and it's a Sunday Sweet!

Shouldn't it be "pen is broken". And, I am not using my finger on that.

Minion's kind of cute in a squashed sort of way. Noticing a definite theme of squashitude though.

Except for the last one...assuming I should be worried that my brain went there before even finishing reading. What's bad is I was at a shop last month that had a similar note

April 7, 2017 | Unregistered Commenterbelblue

:D, Inspiffier! "Intentional Beaver Day" Too funny.
That turtle is for sure mutant and maybe teenage.
Broken pen is, yes. Use the finger you must.

Obviously you are trying the wrong beer. There are so many beers out there. You'll find one you like eventually.

April 7, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterManda

Tere, you literally can see both yellow and chocolate cupcakes. 🙄

I once made a beaver cake (the animal NOT know) for a co-worker to take to a party one weekend. So I brought it to the office for her to take home at the end of the day. She made it a point to ask everyone that day she interacted with that day if they had "seen Kim's beaver." LOLOL Ah, the great fun we had that day with everyone. Good times. And BTW, my beaver was spectacular! :)

I think I want a pillow shaped like that turtle. It's so cute!

April 7, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterLindarella13

If the pen is broke, we should be giving it money, not the finger!

April 7, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterDB

What I want to know is- does the front of that minion's bib overalls say Zohran? And, eek, it's 'hair' is scary.

April 7, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterLoMo

#2 is a "nice try, but ...". It just confirms why after all these years you've probably never been able to have a full Sunday Sweets of actual good-looking cupcake cakes.

Tere, to follow truth in advertising, I think one cupcake is definitely chocolate, one is yellow and all the rest are riddles wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma. Surprise! Who got the one made from spackle?

My daughter's public speaking class - you choose between a couple topics written on slips of paper. One boy did his speech then expressed his confusion about the topic he (thankfully) hadn't spoken on: a poorly spaced "pen is mightier than the sword". So glad they're given options.

April 7, 2017 | Unregistered Commenterdaisybelle

Holy cake wreck, Batman, what's wrong with your left arm? And why is the Green Hornet sitting in contemplation on a space age toilet while wearing a martini olive on his head?

April 7, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterNeeta

Well I feel bad for whoever has a broken penis lmao. I am dying of laughter at that sign and what my brain thinks of it lol.
