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? ;)

The Cake Said WHAT?

When you see the same ol' "happy birthday" butchered day after day, you learn to cherish the cakes that break the mold and say something truly unique.

Whoah, thought that said something a little off-color for a sec!
(Who else saw "Jerk?")


Anyway, I've been collecting some of the better examples for ages now, and as I started scrolling through them today I realized they told a kind of story.

It helps if you imagine them as a conversation between two people.

And also if you're a little drunk.











D'awww. Brings a little tear to the eye, doesn't it?
(I mean, who's giving away "chrildren?")


Thanks to Mike B., Julie R., Marissa D., Nancy M., Jack W., Anony M., Another Anony, Jennifer W., Bethany P., Libby M., & Julie N. for proving a cake can be worth a thousand questions.

“You’re the only DUCK for my Jack”? I don’t... what?

"Doma's Dead" is not about a person. When the Defense Of Marriage Act (DOMA) was overturned by the US Supreme Court, gay marriage became legal in the US. We made a cake for our neighbors then, too. :-)

AND this post features one of my favorite Wrecks, the simple and ever baffling "Todd ?"

Did anyone else think, “how is babby formed” when they saw the “chrilden” cake? Does anyone else even remember that?

No queries about the 'rip' cake? what's that about???

C&M: I'm guessing it's either a "yay for menopause" or "congrats on your hysterectomy" cake. Does that clarify?

I don't get the white-phone-with-red-drops RIP cake either. The “chrilden” cake seems to be styled after the cutesy version of the old "Cootie" game. Interesting

OMG! Is the RIP cake for OB tampons? Who does that?

Let me guess: The "No more mething around" cake was for a getting-out-of-rehab party. …Or going into rehab.

"Mom's ready Mason" gives new meaning to boob-bees.

"RIP my dearest OB": Either someone switched to Tampax or went through menopause.

…Was it Todd? (That cake should be the answer to everything. It's the new 42. Bring a towel.)

Yes, back stories are desperately needed!-

The cookie with the red splotch is a "Preparation H" ad, right? It must be.

Oh. "SCORE." I thought it said "SORE."

Then what the heck IS IT???

July 10, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterHairfish

I am dying at the cake that looks like a very scary tampon lmao. Why oh why would you make the cake look like that???

I don't think Daddy could shoot anything with that rifle - it's turning into an alligator.
Has the Wrecorator ever seen a bee?

Hahahahaa!!!! I did imagine it as a convo with two people... and I am a little drunk (the perks of living in Japan and being half a day ahead of everyone else :D ).

The caterpillar (who I assume is pregnant... "Thanks for the 'chrildren'" might make more sense that way) looks like it's grimacing. And at first I thought it was the Very Hungry Caterpillar.
