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 Best iPhone X Cake Wreck Of All Time

So this guy bought his wife an iPhone for her birthday, then decided to get her an iPhone cake to match.

Now, for you Victorian era time travelers and/or space aliens new to Earth, an iPhone looks like this:

I also wanted the rest of you to have that as a reference, because minions,










P.S. This is one of those cakes that just gets better and better the further you scroll down; by the time I reached "He's surprising his WRITE with an Iphone 10" I was rolling.


Thanks to Golfy (yes, they got her name right!) for dialing CW for Cake Wrecks.

A cake that looks like an iPhone would have been cool, but this is way more memorable. And hilarious. And brown.

To their credit, they DID get the asterisk and octothorpe in the correct places.

Someone needs to contact these bakers, tell them to clear out of the bakery, send them packing and tell them their baking days are at an end.

July 2, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterMike

I second that Mindy1...there are just no words!

July 2, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterElissa

DROPS MIC! This will be hard to top.

July 2, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterMonica

Yes, I can really see the resemblence... to a caculator, maybe.

July 2, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterR.

How good is that? It even has an autocorrect blunder!

July 2, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterLouizalass

Um, love, that first pic isn’t an iPhone.😕

[Editor's note- Hi Mde. It's an iPhone X which is the newest version and the version the cake was supposed to match. If you'd like me to take down this comment, just let me know. Thanks. john (thoJ)]

I don't think I've actually seen a brown phone. Must've been one of those Kyocera knock-offs in the early 90s.

The folks at the bakery really need to upgrade their tech! That looks like the number pad for a flip phone!

July 2, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterReggie

Something tells me this wreckerator is still using a flip phone.

July 2, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterMisti

I think this broke my brain. It just couldn't bend that far! May we have a moment of silence for my brain, please?

July 2, 2018 | Unregistered Commenterpat gann

It hurts. It physically hurts me.

July 2, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterBeth

I hope Golfy enjoyed her totally realistic iPhone cake.

Oh my goodness... just when you think you've seen all the wrecks that could ever be wrecked, this baker says, "Here, hold my flip phone," and creates the wreckiest wreck we've seen in a while. It gets funnier the longer you look at it! The gift that keeps on giving. Thank you for the laugh today!

July 2, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterDLWhite

Yep looks just like the original. I see that. <not>

July 2, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterAddie

And here I was expecting a rotary phone with an eyeball on it, and two number-shaped candles, a 1 and a 0.

July 2, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterClaire

That is definitely an iPhone wreX.

July 2, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterSeabird

This is amazing! I actually laughed out loud for this one!

July 2, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterGreta

Wow. Someone should spank that baker and send them to their room without dinner. (Or phone access.)

July 2, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterMSTeacher3K

At least it wasn't two empty soup cans and a string.

July 2, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterNobodee Home

Oh wow lmao. Maybe the wreckerators were so envious of her gift their decorating skills flew out the window. Honestly what the heck lol.

July 3, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterArlene Marie

I didn't understand what was funny about this until I read the comments.

My phone is a Samsung+Android. I lost my flip-phone.

July 3, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterHairfish

I don’t get it, but that’s definitely not an iPhone! Does the color brown even exist in the world of iPhones?

July 4, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterChicago

I had an enV2 that looked just like that a few (a lot) years ago! Maybe they wanted people to be enVous of their cake 2! Lol

July 4, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterLiv

To me, the strangest part is the "He's surprising his write with an Iphone 10" bit. It suggests whoever took the order felt the need to offer an explanation for the theme to the cake decorator. The thing is, why does the decorator need that explanation? Clearly, it didn't help and does it really matter WHY he needed a cake that looks like an iPhone? If I order a cake that says 'Happy Birthday Tim!' with a puppy on it, do I have to tell them why it needs a puppy?
