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? ;)

CAKES TO CAP IT OFF

YOU'VE BEEN ASKING FOR YEARS:

 

 

 

AND NOW IT'S TIME TO GET WHAT YOU'VE BEEN ASKING FOR FOR YEARS...

BECAUSE TODAY IS NATIONAL CAPS LOCK DAY!

 

HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY

HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY

 

CAPS LOCK IS GREAT FOR CONVEYING ENTHUSIASM

 

AND FOR MAN CAKE

(THIS IS NOT A CAKE FOR A WOMAN!
IT'S A MAN CAKE!
MAAAAAAN CAAAAKE!)

 

CAPS LOCK IS ALSO GREAT FOR E-MAILS TO YOUR GRANDCHILDREN
BUT YOU ALREADY KNEW THAT

HA HA HA HAHAHA

 

OOPS NOW MY EYES ARE BLEEDING FROM TYPING THIS WAY SO I HAVE TO STOP NOW

Oh, goodie! I get to say it first;
EACH OF THESE CAKES IS A CAPITAL OFFENSE! (yay!)

I LOVE THIS POST. I CAN SHOUT AT PEOPLE ALL DAY.

WTF! (WELL THAT'S FANTASTIC)

LOVE IT JEN. VERY CLEVER. YOU ALWAYS DELIGHT. AWESOME!

i'M ALL FOR A BRAIN IN ALL CAPS, BUT IT WOULD APPEAR SOME CAPS ARE MISSING THEIRS.

October 22, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterEoin

the happy, happy, happy etc. cake is very versatile - good for just about any occasion (except a funeral - although it might show up at one)>

So glad that the Brain finally gets a birthday cake! It has been neglected for too many years.......

#1 - Happy Birthday Brain.
I could understand kidney or liver if someone had a transplant.

I once attended a church conference which, when we arrived, had banners hung across the front of the building:
Worship
Teaching
Fellowship

When we broke for lunch, they had been rearranged.

You have to admit that Dad being #10 is better than being #2.

I love that the Canadian Red Cross cake is in au caps. The Canadiennes Fran├žaises should be pleased, no?

October 22, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterSuBee

HA HAHAHAHA
IN AU CAPS

October 22, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterLonePotato

I have to ask: Was the first cake from Pinky?

Until I saw Lady Anne mention that Dad was #10, I thought 1 Dad was #0, which would be most unfortunate.

As much as I enjoy a day of commemorating random things, I shall not participate in caps lock day. OR MAYBE I WILL!! ;-)

October 22, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterMoira

Dad is Number Ten? Dad is Number Zero? Or (and I hope not) it's Dad's tenth birthday.

As someone who is a lazy typist and would prefer that caps be kept at a bare minimum (to save the keystrokes), I must be a conscientious objector to this "holiday". As I am to these cakes.

Usually I'm just a lurker, but I had to say this:
FOLKS, WE HAVE A CORRECT SPELLING OF THE WORD 'CONGRATULATIONS' ON A WRECK.

October 22, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterSBStewartLaing

I LOVE THE MAN CAKE. i'D BUY THAT.
THE VERY FIRST ONE IS GREAT...HAPPY BIRTHDAY, BRAIN!! WHAT A SMARTY!
BUT WTF DO I KNOW??

October 22, 2015 | Unregistered Commenternancie

And what is sad is just about all of these are really nicely decorated cakes. WHY oh WHY did you fumble the cake decorating bag at the one-yard line? (Yes I'm mixing metaphors but they're SO CLOSE to being perfect).

October 22, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterMelmac

@SUBEE, I HAD THE EXACT SAME THOUGHT! WE ARE BOTH SO AU CURRANT!

MY FAVORITE IS THE "JR" CAKE, BECAUSE, WHILE THE REST IS IN CURSIVE SCRIPT, THEY DID INDEED PUT "JR" IN CAPS AND ALL THE INSTRUCTIONS IN CAPS. WAY TO BE THINKING THERE, WRECKERATOR!

@LADY ANNE, I LIKED YOUR STORY.

AND FINALLY, JEN, I LOST IT WHEN I GOT TO THE PART ABOUT THE GRANDPARENT LETTERS. BWAH HA HA HA HA HA HA! CAPITAL, I SAY. SIMPLY CAPITAL!!

October 22, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterJodi

That last one reminds me of a drawing book I had in middle school. The artist was named Walter T. Foster and he initialed most of the little instructional drawings in the book. So all of the pictures in this book were captioned "WTF". Poor guy :D

October 22, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterCavy

If I wanted a cake to encourage the local hockey team, the Washington Capitals, in the box on the form for text, I'd write, "Go Caps!"

And I'll bet I'd get a cake that read, "GO!"

October 22, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterJMixx

@Jane Lewis, Are you rebelling against All Caps Day or did Jen use up all your capitals in her post? ;-)

October 22, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterCarol

I'D LIKE TO IMAGINE YOU WROTE THIS POST USING A SPEECH-TO-TEXT DEVICE AND YOU SHOUTED OUT EVERY WORD

October 22, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterHarold

Happy birthday, BRAIN! (Rest of the guest of honor's birthday, except for his brain, was born the next day?)

October 22, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterChicago

It's Pinky and the BRAIN,
Yes Pinky and the BRAIN.
These cake decorators
are clearly insane!

October 22, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterRobert

I WANT THIS MAN CAKE.

October 22, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterAmy H.

SHE'S A MAN CAKE BABY!!! (cue Austin Powers theme)

My brain read this post in the voice of Grenda from Gravity Falls.

October 22, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterMom A

So what you're saying is, these cakes are Torgue cakes?

"Torgue weapons ALWAYS fire EXPLOSIVE ROUNDS. They are also LOUD and require EXCESSIVE use of CAPITAL LETTERS."

I'M JOINING THE RANKS OF THE SCREAMING COMMENTERS (HEY, GREAT NAME FOR A GARAGE BAND!).

CANT WAIT TO SEE WHAT WE'LL BE YELLING ABOUT TOMORROW!

October 22, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterZippy

WELL NOW I GET TO SHOUT TOO LOL. WOW AND WITH ME BEING SICK YELLING HERE IS SO MUCH EASIER. I THINK THE WRECKERATORS SHOULD GET SHOUTED AT FOR THESE LOL

October 23, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterArlene Marie

WHAT I WANT TO KNOW IS, WHY CAKE #2 APPEARS TO BE GARNISHED WITH CARROT RINGS?
WE HAVE A FLOORING COMPANY LOCALLY NAMED WALLACE TIMBER FLOORS. ALL THEIR VEHICLES HAVE PERSONALISED LICENCE PLATES WITH THE COMPANY INITIALS AND A NUMBER. I'M NOT SURE IF THEY'VE EVER THOUGHT IT THROUGH :-)

October 23, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterColleenoz

@ Colleenoz, I'm pretty sure that the spherical orange deals on cake #2 are basketballs. There appears to be little creases in the balls...although some very skinny piping in the creases would have sold the idea better, I'm thinking.

October 26, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterMary Kay

I PRETENDED THIS POST WAS BEING READ BY BRIAN BLESSED. AND IT WAS GLORIOUS.

October 30, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterEmma

The man cake caption had us in tears, in stitches, sore cheeks, the works. Thanks so much.
