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? ;)

Oh, the irony.

[insert Peter Pan joke here]




I bet this is the last time BJ's Wholesale Club abbreviates its name:


Anyone else getting kind of a dirty vibe off this butterfly?

(No seriously, why is the end dirty??)



Unless you think that's supposed to be a bronze pear statue. Which it is. Allegedly.


Baby, You're A Firework! need of medical attention.


The Girls' Night Out:

No, I mean literal girls. They're babies. In bed. With unusually pert pacifiers.


This was supposed to say, "Germany, here we come!"

Looks like "Germany" will be smacking the ceiling with a broom tonight.


A Very Happy Butterfly:


And an even happier frog:



A Cake Wrecks classic, and one of my earliest posts:

I love that someone - either the customer or the decorator - felt that "sexual harassment" needed to be illustrated. And I realize the decorator can't be expected to be Picasso or anything, but check out how far the girl's feet are off the ground. Either that was the Spank Heard 'Round the World, or she's on an invisible step while Chuckles there digs for gold.


And finally, one older still:


If you haven't read the full back story by Scott of Basic Instructions - who has since become both a dear friend and an excellent author, btw - grab a tissue for the tears of laughter, and go check it out.
Good stuff.
