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? ;)

"Something Funny, I Guess?"

You'll never guess what Beth ordered for her daughter's birthday party!

Or, ok, maybe you will.


Ah, but can you decipher the exact words used in this phone call?

Nailed it.

Hey, you're good at this!


Now, how well can you follow directions?

Nice to know Jackie keeps herself centered.


Marissa's boss was leaving on a trip, so she wanted to get a cake that said, "So................" as an inside joke. She specified that there should be 18 dots, so...

Good luck with that, Marissa.

(I like how the baker spontaneously switched to cursive for just the letter R.)

(Also, "Fallowing?" You ever wonder what these bakers THINK they're writing?)


And finally, you guys will never guess where the baker is going with this one!


Now with bonus color commentary on today's post: the cast of Hogan's Heros, everybody!

Thanks, guys.


And thanks to Beth M., Jenny S., Sky C., Marissa, & Robert F. for addressing the problem.

The writing on that last one is gorgeous, though.

The first cake is best read in Hulk Voice.

My first thought for cake 1 was a Super Smash Bros. parody. Then I pictured a hulked-out Mickey smashing his own cake while saying the words.

I wasn't familiar with "smash cakes."

Used to be if people couldn't get a real job (for some reason or other) they would take a temporary job at McDonalds (no offence to anyone working there). NOW they go to work at a bakery.

I don’t understand the 5th cake. What does it mean?

Such a shame all these cakes looked so pretty well most of them anyways lol. I really wonder who the heck is taking these orders and why are they writing them on cake? No notepads? Lol.

I know who Mickey Mouse is. But what's a "Mickey Mouse Smash Cake"?

And I've never seen an address that had both a lot number and an apartment number.

I had no idea what a "Smash" cake was until I googled it...MUCH funnier now. Also, too bad about #5 -- it is a pretty cake!! All that work just to..get it so wrong! ::head:desk:
