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? ;)

8 Bakers Failing At Ridiculously Simple Tasks

You had one job, bakers:





[head in hands]


My eyes!


I'm always hearing how cakes should come with spell check. Um, guys?

This one did.


Q: How easy is it when all you have to do is pipe a little path for Strawberry Shortcake to stand on?

A: Apparently not easy enough.



I don't know why, but this one made me laugh like an unhinged maniac:

"Almost... there... almoooost... AW SCREW IT."


Then I found this one:


My life, it is now complete.

1) This isn't a backwards #1. It's a psychedelic horse. This baker was probably on an acid trip.
2) Hulk went west and went on a crash diet. That he'd end up looking so much like Woody is pretty incredible.
3) An upside down cake.
4) This bakery must have had a skeleton crew working that day.
5) And I thought there was no way they'd find a new way to spell that word. You learn something new every day.
6) So many possibilities - either she has really bad diarrhea upon leaving home or Strawberry Shortcake is no longer for children.
7) Maybe they opened it up to let all the sprinkles escape.
8) And here is where they ended up. Bet you didn't know sprinkles could migrate.

"Congtarulations" would be more appropriate for the Navy.

If only the lazy icing were in a literal screw shape.

I am extremely myopic, so maybe that's why I thought the link to your other site said, "How To Get Chop Stick Stains Out of Your Clothes." I kept thinking, "Chopsticks stain clothes??"

How does one misspell 'congratulations' THAT BADLY? I mean, I can at least understand (sort of) congraD, because it's frequently for graduation cakes and they just conflate the two. But this one? Holy moly.
And the one with the skullies for eyes has a J for a nose, WTF?

Cake #3: 'Hey, I only do the writing. Is that a picture? I thought it was, you know, abstract art.'
Cake #7: 'Help! The nozzle's gone crazy! I can't control it! How do I switch it - Oh, thanks.
Right, that'll have to do. No way am I switching it on again.'
