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 Leash Is Just For Show; It's Very Well Trained

It's "Take Your Houseplant For A Walk" day, in case you were wondering what I'm doing with this ficus.

::uncomfortable silence::

Soooo... I notice you don't have a plant with you.

::more silence::

That's alright, just head to your local bakery!

See, I'm sure this one needs to get out.


And this one could definitely use some fresh air.


Here Ron is attempting to shoo a cake plant outside:

Silly Ron. You have to WALK your flower cake.


Just look how sad this one is, waiting for someone to play catch with it:

Hey Ron, GO LONG.


Besides, think of all the social benefits of walking your plant cakes. The friends they'll make!


The mental health professionals you'll meet!

"What can I say? I'm a big cake fan. Bahahaha!"

"....ok Sheila but explain the leash."

So get on out there, minions, and walk a plant. Or a cake of a plant. We won't judge. Me and the ficus, we're pretty open-minded.


Thanks to Jamie D., Carri M., Ron B., Crystal B., Sara P., & Megan C. for being out standing their fields.

As a child, I remember reading a book called 'The Plant that Ate Dirty Socks'. The titular plant was owned by a child who decided that one day his plant needed to go out for a walk, and so he put the potted plant on a skateboard, attached a leash, and took it outside for a walk. Sounds like it deserves to have a holiday in its honor!

"a big cake fan" omg I totally lost it. Thank goodness I wasn't taking a sip of water because I would have choked and/or spit it all over my laptop screen.

That fifth cake, with the pink roses, looks like it is sticking its tongue out at me. Don't worry; I'm not taking it personally.

@3davideo: the label on the first cake's lower left appears to be "Vanilla"

July 27, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterZrmac

Davideo, the sign says "Chocolate Cake".

I had the great joy to see George Carlin perform once. This post reminds me of the story he told about taking his cake to the bakery to visit the other cakes... :)
