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? ;)

Cake Wrecks, Too: The Search For Happ

It's "Hunt for Happiness Week," minions, and I think I'm off to a good start:

We're close. I CAN ALMOST FEE

(I do not mean to pry, but you don't by any chance happen to know if Liz & Matt are... dogs?)


This one definitely wanted "happiness":

...but something decidedly non-happy has happened here.


Ohh, oh! What's this?!

YASSSSSSwait. "Shawers?"

Dangit. We were so close, Alanna.


Say, have I mentioned it's also Sugar Awareness Week?

And were you aware that you can Photoshop your own face and all your pets into a fantastically ridiculous edible image on a big sugary sheet cake?

Boom. We've done it, team. WE'VE FOUND HAPPINESS.


Thanks to Patty S., Melissa M., Alanna R., & Lauren for being 'bout that life. Me, too, gang. ME, TOO.

Well now I want to photoshop my face, along with the fuzz butts faces, onto cake right now!!! That is definitely the epitome of happiness!

P.S. Jen and John - Check your USA Amazon link. It's broken! :( Thankfully I have it bookmarked on my 'puter and use it to shop. :-D

[Note from Jen: Hmm, the link still seems to be working on our end! Maybe refresh and try again? I'll go check it in other browsers, too.]

Would a "HAPPY MESS" work? (Not to worry; the dog will eat ANY mess. ...and make a few of its own, probably.)

Duuuuude. Check the magenta, man. It's done dried up.

1. "Love & Happ"

2. this is what happens when you use a shower head to write on the cake

3. It's the Shawer family from Happiness - an icer's typo. It should read Happyland

4. Woman in the moon, over the obscure town of Petland, FL

Is that Michele Bachmann in the moon? Genius!
I don't know what the inscription is but I keep thinking it should be "We Built This City."

So what does that last cake say? My best guess is "Wes 'bout that lifes" but that misses on so many fronts.

January 21, 2019 | Unregistered Commentersue

Me 'bout that life too.

I agree with Sue! I'm completely confused by the last cake's wording. Enquiring minds want to know!

Showers of blue squiggles

I guess the wreckerators just gave up on happiness and decided we all just need happ instead lol.

January 22, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterArlene Marie

Is it just me, or does anyone else see the second cake's inscription as "Showers of Happ-boob"?
