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? ;)

'Tis The Season

It's hard to capture all the magic of the season in a single cake, but by jove, I think this bakery's gone and done it:

I don't know about you, but I'm feeling all warm and tingly inside.


What do you think, Ambivalent Snowmen?



Oh! That reminds me:

'Tis the season to pick up your custom order at the bakery, realize how awful it is as you're walking away, and dump the wreck in the cheese case before making a hasty get-away:


Fa la la la la laaaaaaaa...

La la

I though the last cake was a pickle! But then I realized that didn't make a great dill of sense.

A warty jalapeno?

That last one is clearly the Christmas Pickle, have you no culture?

That last one ... did the baker get confused between orders for “Christmas stocking” and “Christmas pickle”? (No really- Christmas pickles are a thing, look it up)

1) That's snow cake, it's a wreck.
2) Someone didn't like the snowmen gossiping, so they sewed their lips shut.
3) That's one way to wrecktify the situation.
4) "Shh! Be vewy quiet! I'm stocking the wild green jay."

Is that the Holiday Jalapeno? LOL

The Happy Birthday Snowman cake isn't a wreck only for the terrible text placement. "Re-Re" is also a slur calling someone retarded.

Well at least we can be sure those things actually are snowmen. I honestly wonder who would buy that SNOW cake though lol.
