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? ;)

Say Something Nice Day

It's Say Something Nice Day, guys!

Aaaand... GO.

Aw, so sweet!


Well, I do try.




You know, this doesn't have to be about ME.
How about saying nice stuff to other people, too?

Yeah, good one, Michelle!


Let's hear it for all the "Not Dramks" out there!

(And the definitely drunk decorators!)


And finally... awww, YOU GUYS...

[blush]'d you even KNOW about that?


Thanks to Constance D., Ashley G., Brittany U., Michelle M., Lola K., & J.M. for always knowing just what to say.


PS - Looks like someone over at the local Cookie Shop knows that if you can't say anything nice... should at least make it really funny.



Thank you for using our Amazon links to shop! USA, UK, Canada.

I'm surprised no one else has commented that the "Yay! You're not a drunk today!" Cake also happens to have a "4" birthday candle in it. Trying to figure out what this four-year-old's typical day is like.

On cake #3 was that a "L" or a "f"? 😳😰😳

June 1, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterBigg3469

I actually laughed out loud at the last one...excellent cake, and a snapshot of real life.

June 1, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterNancie

Yes, I was wondering about that too!

June 1, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterDorothy

I would not be unhappy if someone gave me that unicorn cake.

June 1, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterElissa

The great thing about Michelle's cake is that it appears to be the decorator's second try.

June 1, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterWill

Yes, I noticed that. There's nothing worse than a drunk (or indeed dramk) four-year-old.

June 1, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterAlice Shortcake

Some of them are not bad, except for the weird inscriptions

June 1, 2015 | Unregistered Commentermindy1

Wow. On Michelle's cake, that second word has already been fixed at least once.

Where did the rest of the icing border go on the first one?

June 1, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterTLC

RE: Michelle's cake: If I had a nickel for every time I got *that* message on a cake! Amiright? Actually, I'd be broke because no one calls me Michelle. Ba-DUM-chshh! Aheh. Ahehe. Whoo, I crack myself up.

Something Nice.

(come on, someone had to do it (and I can't tell if anyone has yet because comment approval lag)).

"Say good night, Gracie."

June 1, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterJust Andrea

Yeah, that candle had me wondering, too.
Maybe it was the person's 4th year of sobriety?
I hope that cake didn't send them back to drinking...

#4, that close, yet a complete failure. I'm no good at cursive, but even I know that an "L" loops back to the right. (see, Mom, "Laverne & Shirley" is educational)

June 1, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterNerfbomb

Erin, I totally agree. That was my first thought, too.

June 1, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterColin M.

I would hate to think that a four-year-old drunk HAS a "typical day". But at least it involves cake. =^-.-^=

June 1, 2015 | Unregistered Commentersendingtheclowns

I am still trying to imagine a situation that would call for Cake #3. The grammar is correct, the spelling is perfection, and the script even looks halfway decent. The sentiment though... Why?

June 1, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterGinger

But at least they spelled congratulations correctly!

June 1, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterChristy

In AA or NA, anniversaries of your sobriety date are called birthdays. Hope thats what #5 was celebrating. Otherwise, kindergarten is gonna be interesting next year.

June 1, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterAllegra

I also noticed the drunk 4 year old cake!

June 1, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterJMe

Is it just me or does the "not" in not guilty look like it was added?

June 1, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterTrixie

Look on the bright side of the last one. At least you get to have the whole cookie....all to yourself !

June 1, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterGayle

Pretty more than sure that the "4" candle on the drank cake refers to years in sobriety. Generally for a group meeting you can have a cake for your sobriety birthday, and a little joking humor could be in order.

I always enjoy being told my vagina is awesome, especially if it involves cake. I'm kind of wondering if the recipient is going to return the favor and what that cake is going to look like! (Your penis is rad!)

June 1, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterRebecca

i didn't do it, it's not my fault, nobody can prove a thing!

June 1, 2015 | Unregistered Commenterjen m

If my gynecologist sent me my Pap smear results via cake, I would never forget to make my appointment again.

June 1, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterJust Andrea

@Just Andrea: totally got your joke with the Michelle cake. Just wanted you know my mind was with you on that one! 😉

June 1, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterGingerSnap

Can no one else see that the word drunk is actually spelt correctly? The R has been written with the old style downward stroke at the end... it took me ages to see how if you put that downwards stroke and loop back up to the to start of the U together it could be read as an A!

June 1, 2015 | Unregistered Commentercylajen

I don't think I even want to know why on earth someone would put your vagina is awesome on a cake lol. Oh the laughter that ensued with that one. I would love to receive that unicorn cake. It is cute and not at all creepy. For once the unicorn looks like a unicorn and not some possessed elf with a wang on it's head.

June 2, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterArlene Marie

@cylajen I saw it too. I was wondering why they were talking about this "dramk" word when the only real mistake is the "your".

Other than that, the post was really funny. :D

June 2, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterSpiritMuse

@GingerSnap: Thanks! : - D

@cylajen: It's all about the spacing. They should have left more space between the letters and it would have been legible.

June 2, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterJust Andrea

Other than the font way low on cake, and *maybe* the horn on the unicorn looking a bit like a saber (the sword) what is wrong with first cake? It's quite cute and the unicorn overall well drawn.

The rest? Meh.

June 2, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterMelmac

re: "Hi, I like you" ... what the heck is that on the horse's forehead?! Oh, wait, is it supposed to be a unicorn?
