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? ;)

Hey, I hear the Super Bowl is coming up. Whaddaya think of that, Wilson?

[pauses to see how many other people remember Home Improvement]


And we all know Wilson' favorite part, right?


[bowing] Ah thank you, thankyouverymuch.


Ok, enough funny stuff. Time to get down to business.

Oh, is that what the kids are calling it these days?


Well, just be careful with those "touchdowns," if you know what I mean. We all know where those can lead:

Yep. Haunted football-shaped ponds.


Not to mention all the football-shaped tumors:

Nike: Just Chew It.


So in conclusion: always know what time it is, use your quotes wisely, and perhaps avoid ordering your Super Bowl Game cake from this place:

Even if it IS a real gem.


Thanks to Jenny P., Melinda B., Rachel R., Pearl D., Kellie G., & Alexis M. for keeping the pigskin and just passing the cake.

The second-last cake; They forgot the "i" in Alien.
The last cake - conversation in the bakery;
"Hey, everyone this is "Joe". He's just arrived.( I can't pronounce his real name) He's our new cake decorator, aren't you, Joe? … Just nod your head. Okay! Back to work. Set up those cakes and start writing on them."

What were they even trying to do on the sperm cake?! I'm so confused!

Passive aggressive European baker...
"Sure. "Football". Where you throw the egg with your hands."

Now, I'm all for creative spelling (no, I am not), but don't mom and dad foresee how hard little Brysan Alen is going to have it correcting people on the spelling of his (could be a her, right, these days it's hard to tell) name? Or, perhaps they aren't in the US, and those are the usual spellings.
But, then again, it's football and a tacky pregnant belly cake...

For the Detroit Lions cake, yes, "football" should be in quotations. Because whatever they play isn't quite what the rest of the league plays.

I am just so confused about the football tumor cake. What was even going through the wreckorator's head when they made it?

You have never heard of the Super Obol? It is the champion of cereal bowls.

When the cakes begin to blow
And ghost-balloons will flow
They put a great big smile on Jen's happy face
Oh if you can't spell Superbowl
And your stomach's like a ball
You have to wreckorate, you know the posts to date are "just so"

Oh I wish we could have football cake each day
When the helmets look like Darth Vader fell on his fa-ay-ace
Oh I wish they was a defence against bad cakes
So let the ba-kers learn to write good.

Ok you got a real out-loud laugh from me at "defense" X-D

Why does the first one look like a Zygon?

February 1, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterAnon

So the term super bowl is copyrighted, so technically
it’s not supposed to be written on cakes. so maybe that
last one is them trying to get around it?

Karen In Michigan, you can't take all the credit for the Lions not playing what the crest of the league does. Our Tampa Bay Buccaneers do a fine and dandy job as well.

On the third cake, "football" is in quotes because the sport is really called handegg; or as I personally call it: American Rugby 🤔

What are the brown things on the island in the center of the haunted pond? Do I even want to know?
