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? ;)

10 MORE Reasons Why

Today is a special day, minions.

A day... TO BUY CAKE.


Because they didn't have the OTHER cake:


Because all the turkey cakes are sold out:


Because it's gonna be a loooong tractor ride:


Because you've put off this party long enough:


Because they can't call it passive aggressive if it's literally written in sugar:


Because the team needs a refresher:


Because you DO got milk:


Because you're not sorry:


But the real reason you should buy cake today?

Because it's wrong to buy people.

And also yours might end up on Cake Wrecks. :D

Lesson one; Always cross your d's
Lesson 2; when using the words, cat, dog and rat, always illustrate your point with a picture…of a bee.
Lesson 3; "Got Milk" illustrates the aftermath of a car accident where the side mirror flew off and landed in an old glass milk bottle on someone's porch. (who still believes in door to door milk delivery)
Lesson 4; GAAAAG! What is that body-part cake doing in that ad at the bottom of the post?

I must be dense, but Cat, Dog, Rat?

January 16, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterJD

What cracks me up most is that the cat-dog-rat cake has a picture of a bee...

That Fabulous cake isn't a wreck, it's fabulous. No apologies necessary

I've never heard of turkeys being circumcised, but then, I've never heard of lot of things seen here...! "Conceivably" the last syllable of 'circumcision' is correct... And what is that... thing... on the Got Milk cake?? A ... vacuum ... uh ... cleaner??

I like how they half crossed the T/D in "Graduation." That way, in case it was supposed to be a T, they can say it was! Played it safe.

I just want to know the story behind that cat/dog/rat/bee cake, and what the hell is in that milk bottle.

The thing on the Got Milk cake is a breast pump.

So it make sense... kinda? But ... why?

January 16, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterKylie

You people have never seen a breast pump? It's actually not a terrible representation of one of the bottle attachments. And indeed, pumping milk for my babies after I went back to work would have been more pleasant with cake!

Is “cat dog rat” possibly a spelling bee cake, and they went super literal with the bee?

January 16, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterAustex99

The thing on the got milk cake is a Breast pump. It must be a cake for support of the commitment of breast feeding.

January 16, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterCara

Sue, the thing on the Got Milk cake is a breast pump.

January 16, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterMeadra

I thought it was a megaphone strapped to a robot leg.

January 16, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterClassic Steve

The “got milk” cake is showing a breast pump, which I know, may be TMI.

January 16, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterHeather

@Sue, I'm not sure what it IS, but it is supposed to be the kind of manual pump that breast-feeding mothers use for expressing milk when they can't always be around when baby's hungry.

January 16, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterLauraB

That thing on cake #8 is a breast pump. Not a fun thing to use, very uncomfortable and somewhat inefficient.

January 16, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterA-nony Mouse

Maybe the "got milk" cake is for a baby shower? It would definitely be an improvement over most of the baby shower cakes we see here!

What is a “cucumcision”? Asking for a friend...

January 18, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterChicago

Well I wouldn't be sorry if I was fabulous either but I am not so I will just laugh and imagine the face of the person that got the cake instead hehe.

January 18, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterArlene Marie

@Chicago: a “cucumcision" is the removal of the "fore-peel" of a cucumber. You're welcome ;)

January 19, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterCaliKath

I am guessing the cat-dog-rat one is supposed to evoke one of those "the cow says moo" toys (See 'n' Say) with the spinning arrow in the middle. Obviously it has just the words, not the pictures, and presumably that would be the wreck.
