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? ;)

Man Cakes For Beef Cakes

Robyn T.'s family was celebrating four birthdays, and since the birthday boys were all guys, they asked for a "masculine" cake.

Instead, they got an inscription that took them all afternoon to puzzle out:

(I assume the first symbol was the top half of a "4" on the order sheet. Don't you just love written games of Telephone?)


See, your problem was trusting the bakers to know what's masculine, Robyn. Next time, just ask for the balloons to be bunched together with one long and two round ones:



Or how about some cookies to remind the guys of the bachelor party they never had?

(I saw a balloon stripper on Night Court* once, so now I just assume all bachelor parties have them. DON'T BURST MY BUBBLE.)


Men don't like a lot of talking about their feelings and whatnot, so remember to keep your namby-pamby adjectives to yourself, if you please:

Replace the roses with crushed beer cans, and now we're REALLY talking.


Oh, hey, you know what men do like?

...and peeing on things.


So the next time you need a masculine design, peeps, don't ask for it. Just find something in the case that already works!

Now just jam a power drill on this thing, and you're golden.


Thanks to Robyn T., Mandy B., Jamie D., Robb J., Jaleo, & Kallan for knowing there is nothing - NOTHING - more manly than chocolate skid marks.

I swear, that bottom cake has a face on it, peeking out from under the - the - um, whatever the heck that black thing is!

I love the "Night Court" reference!! That show was absolutely amazing. And oddly enough, when you said balloon strippers, that is exactly where my mind went!

Based on ‘80s TV, I thought all bachelor parties featured a scantily clad woman jumping out of a cake the size of a car. And before she popped out, everyone totally believed it was a real cake!

Ooh! Ooh! Now do an homage to the Night Court episode where all the pregnant women go into labor during the power outage and the one lady has triplets!

Ah, Nightcourt... One of my local "retro" tv channels shows the middle of the afternoon, which seems a little off for a show with "night" right in the name...

In the theme of sitcoms:
For the last cake I'll just quote Tim Allen "More power! Urgh-urgh-urgh! "
