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? ;)

Hey, All These Lyrics I Forgot...

Should all baking skills be forgot?
And never brought to mind?


Could all that schooling be for naught?

For all


For allll da-aang tiiime, my dear
For old brain wine!

La DAAAA da daaaaa da
something, something...


For bald hang(over) time!


Hey. You. Yes, you.


And you, too, lady.

Have fun tonight, guys, but please remember to always decorate responsibly.

Um, is that first cake supposed to be a beer stein?

December 31, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterLady Anne

1) I know that's probably supposed to be a beer mug, but it looks more like a sock that has a thread beginning to unravel.
2) "Captain, we're caught in some weird time loop. We're not going backwards or forwards."
3) If there was such a thing as brain wine, these bakers should drink some. It might actually help. On second thought, they're already too far gone.
4) This is Santa after his deliveries and trying to pretend all those kids were on the good list.
5) And do they have stars upon thars?

LOVE the poor little bald man! Happy New Year!

Is #5 a new kind of CCC? It seems to have been cut into squares between icing and decorating.
#4 has clearly been drinking Sparkle Beer and Brain Wine since yesterday, but his boss still made him decorate all these cakes. Happy New Year, wreckorators! Without you we wouldn't have the funniest blog on the Internet, would we? And Happy New Year to my favourite bloggers, Jen & John!

I can tell that the person who made the clock cake has never seen an analog clock in his or her sheltered life.

Cake #2 is just what happens when a generation of wreckerators who have never had to refer to an analog clock for the time come into their own. :(

What on earth is that thing in the right corner of the "toast" cake supposed to be? We all know what it looks like, but I can't for the life of me figure out why it's on there.

Happy New Year, state of Alabama with a male appendage!

Looks like the wreckerators have been drinking all year long lol. Oh the laughing..

I work with elders with dementia and part of the assessment of severity is asking them to draw a clock and put the numbers on correctly.

just sayin"
