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? ;)

A 30-Year-Old Spoiler & Powdered Holes

If you think I'm touching this one with a ten-foot-pole...

Not. Saying. a WORD.


Let's try something a little less potentially controversial, k? Like some nice, pastel yellow, powdered holes.



Marketing Guy #1: "I dunno, is there some way we can make donut holes sound both unappetizing and vaguely pornographic?"

Marketing Guy #2: Oh! And oddly specific!


I don't want to spoil any plot points on a thirty year old movie or anything, guys, but that's a father and daughter on this misspelled divorce cake:



And finally, she asked for a princess carriage.

What she got was a whole lotta 'splainin' to do:

Awk. Waaaard.


Thanks to Crystal R., Jennifer B., Elizabeth A., Anony M., & Casey D. for giving new meaning to the phrase, "My baby's getting married!"

That divorce cake is a mind bender: awesome pun, beautiful workmanship, cringe worthy execution.

Not only is the premise of #3 wrong, But has anyone noticed that they should have done a spell check? Divorce is spelled with a C.

Shouldn't that be Vader and Padme on a divorce cake?

November 6, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterFrankN.Stein

Wow. That actually DID spoil the plot point for me! That's how much of a non-geek I am - I had no idea that those two were father and daughter.
I had to confirm with the wonderhusbundt.
But as Mr. Abu does point out, I am so unlikely to ever watch the movie, it's kind of a moot point.
Yeah, thanks. JEN.

I think it's oddly appropriate that divorce on the cake appears to be mis-spelled because the "R" and "C" are so close together and it makes it look like it's an "S".

Aside from the misspelling, that divorce cake doesn't seem wrecky to me. Maybe Padme's hair was just too much to manage?

Make that a DIVORSE cake.

Oh my! I'd have been livid if I was the bride on who ordered the last cake.

The chocolate ones at Wally World used to say devil holes. :o

Lol Padme did once wear her hair like that but considering wreckerators I bet it is Leia. If they can't spell divorce correctly it makes me wonder if they even saw Star Wars movies lol.

Well, its de vorse cake Ive ever seen with fondant and Darth Vader and Princess Leia on top and a bad pun on "The Force be with you". Was that specific enough to be the only Google answer?

Why does Scooby look like he’s got the mumps? Does that have anything to do with why his mouth is open? Maybe he’s about to bite into a Clyde’s doughnut hole .

Help me out with cake #1. I get that it's a CCC (patooey!) but it's not the worst one in the world. Is it the seizure reference? What's not to touch with a 10-foot-pole? I hate it when I don't get the joke. :/

November 7, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterChris

I think the "Divorse" cake may be an attempt to mimic the "RS" in the Star Wars title font. Yeah, I'm a geek.
