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? ;)

I Bet The Pillow Tasted Better, Too

Remember, kids, it's wrong to laugh at someone's name.

Unless it's spelled like this:

I hear he's a real gas!

(No, that's not really his name. Sorry, Dr. Goldfarb.)

(Bee tee dubs, did you know the Brits sometimes call a fart a "trouser cough?" I just felt that needed to be shared. You're welcome.)


Just another reminder that gender reveal cakes are a terrible idea:

I wonder how much awkward back-pedaling these mistakes have caused over the years. Like, that second celebratory back-flip better seem JUST AS HAPPY, mister. [glare]


Speaking of happy, a pro baker sent me this screen cap of a conversation with one of his customers, and it is, in a word, perfection:

Phew! Thank goodness she caught that.


You know how Mario Kart has Rainbow Road? Turns out Monster Jam has something similar:

Fecal Freeway!

(There's a "skid mark" joke in there SOMEWHERE, I just know it.)


This cookie cake was bare in the middle, so they asked the baker to fill in the big space with something decorative.

They got this:

Picasso, eat your heart out.


And finally, look, sometimes a baker gets really high, tries to eat a pillow, and then realizes she needs to hide the secret beer stash from the boss, ok? This could literally happen to anyone.

Really, the only mystery left is how that bottle is still full, amirite? Haha! You know, because drunks? In the bakery? Like, who are drunk while decorating? Am I being too subtle? No? OH GOOD.


Thanks to Carol B., Charmaine F., Craig B., Jill K., Stacey M., & Shari I. for helping me put the B in "subtle."

Are those (hoark) COTTON BALLS surrounding the Corona bottle?

I'm trying to figure out in what context an oddly-shaped white blob is considered decorative. I'm coming up blank.

I looked really closely, and I'm not sure, but I'm hoping those white puffs are chunks of angel food cake.
And honestly, I had to think for a few seconds what the correct spelling of "write" is!

The second cake must date back to the Victorian Era.

I wonder if Mr. Goldfart has the MIdas Tush?

…Is that a road made out of poo wangs?

Unless that white blob is supposed to be some kind of flattened snowman I can't figure out why it's there lol. That is not decorative it's confusing. As are the rest of these lol.

Is that first cake from Florida? Dr. Goldfarb did my first root canal; he'd be about the right age to retire.

My dad would love a cake with a beer on it (of a different brand). He always says, “nothing wrong with beer and cake”. :D

Farts are also called "trumps" in England. Just sayin'.

December 30, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterEstelyn

We also call a fart a 'trump' in Britain too. :)

OK, so, many of your posts make me sigh, chuckle, smirk, or make various shocked and appalled faces. But that "decorative" white blob? I'm still laughing so hard I can barely type.
