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? ;)

You'll Never Say "I Do" The Same After Seeing This Engagement Cake

Nicole's friends had a casual engagement party, so to have a little fun with it they called it the "I Do Barbecue." It's cute, it's descriptive, it rhymes - what could go wrong?

Oh wait, that's right: THEY ORDERED A CAKE.

Mistake #1, you guys.

Or should I say "Mistake #2?"

Yep, thanks to an unfortunate choice of "BBQ" design and a truly baffling emphasis in the wording, the happy couple ended up [snerk]... with this:


Take a second. Really explore this one. This is one of those gifts that keeps on giving.

And hey, if you ever decide to turn your spa colonic into a more social event, we've got the cake for it, right here!

Just, please, no chocolate.


Thanks to Nicole, who reports the "I Do" BBQ was so draining that she was completely wiped in the end.


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

What I want to know is why someone would use a flaming hot barbecue grill for a toilet? I guess they'd be on the hot seat. And when they were done, they'd think it was hot.....well, you know.

Really I have just one question about this most magnificent of all BBQs. I get the orange and red "flames", as well as the poodogs and pooburgers. But, please, in the name of all that is sweet, what are the GREEN things?!

Cassandra, you probably need to adjust your monitor. The flames are red and orange and yellow!
I think the decorator did a great job on the barbecue pit itself, although it's not the most festive thing for a cake. The coals and flames and ash, and even the grate, are fine. They just should have stopped there, because it looks like someone else piped on the "meat". All of it is too small, and fell through the grate into the coals.
It must have been the same person who did the writing.
