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? ;)

Resolution Time

Each January, millions of people around the world use the dawning of a new year as a reason to stop eating HoHos. And each January, millions of people fail miserably.

[shaking fist] (I wish I knew how to quit you, HoHos!)

But not this year...

This year, I resolve to:


Eat more fruits and vegetables.


This counts, right?



Cut down on my caffeine intake.


...especially while baking. It makes your hands shake and there's nothing worse than dropped Bawls.



Take responsibility for my mistakes - even the itty-bitty ones that no one else would ever really notice.


The frownie face shows I'm sincere.



Learn Esperanto.
So I can be more like Captain Kirk.



And finally, stop selling babies on the black market.


...or at least start packaging them better. (Customs can be such a pain in the butt.)


Thanks Rachel T., Lisa, Alicia G., Monique R., Jessica R., Karilee S. Hmm, Captain Kirk, beer and herpes. I think I remember that episode...


Thank you for using our Amazon links to shop! USA, UK, Canada.

The sad part is the baby cake was almost cute. If it had had a cute baby face instead of legs it might have been better. The herpes cake was just LOL.

The link for Captain Kirk doesn't work. :(

I had to stare at the next to last cake for a long time before figuring out those weren't cherry tomatoes on top.

Jackie, I’m sure the “Captain Kirk” reference was an oblique rejoinder to Incubus, the weird Esperanto-language film starring William Shatner.

Oh man lol that frowny face really makes a difference for the herpes cake. Yep all is forgiven cause of that face..right that cake would end up in the person's face lol.

Except for the baby part, the last cake looks nicely done.
