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? ;)

Romance Is Wrecked

It's that time again, gang: "Resurrect Romance Week," aka six months after Valentine's Day, when we're to contemplate reigniting "the spark" with our better halves. (You know, that person currently hogging the remote and scratching his/her unmentionables.)


Sometimes, it's difficult.

(Note how I didn't say "hard.")


Others, it's darned near impossible.


But remember, six months ago, you probably gave said person one of these cakes...

...and there was probably a reason!
(I just realized if you read these from right to left, it's the story of either a totally disastrous or highly successful first date.)


Maybe it was that cute sound she made when she kissed you...



Or the way he whispered sweet nothings in your ear.

[whispering] "Huuuuuuge."


Maybe it was the way she rocked a pushup bra...

"Too close. Alittletooclose!"


Or the way he did his sexy dance.

[clown nose honking]

Whatever it was, my friends, just remember, it was something. And you should, uh, remember that.


Thanks to Julianne B., Greg F., Carolyn S., Kate M., Steven H., Angela B., Morgan W., & Lisa G. for proving romance isn't dead; it just needs some cake.

Y'all just killed me--!AGAIN!--with "[clown nose honking]" the little clown slides into home ! "Heeee's... SAFE!" (Or...IS he...?)

Interesting that you chose this topic today: it's actually my & my DH's wedding anniversary (19, for those keeping score). I could see him deliberately giving me a "Huge Me" cupcake--my butt is WAY too big by my standards, but he claims he likes big butts & he can't deny...

I especially appreciate the outie bellybutton on the bikini cake.

GTFO cake...that may be the next cake I buy! Love the Aladdin reference! ;)

She leaned in for the kiss..."Mmmm..." but then the cheap waxy chocolate you bought her had the inevitable effect: "AUH!!"

Next time, buy Godiva. Or Lindt.

GTFO - good realization of the Rober-Raik creation.

I've been tilting my head like a confused puppy, trying to figure out what the "Huge Me" is.

Oozy CCC? Oddly moist-looking frosted cookie? A straight-up pile of icing?

August 10, 2015 | Unregistered Commenterj.

the GTFO is brill! looks exactly like Rage Comics :D
