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? ;)

Kringle Fails

♫ Dashing people's hopes ♪

That their cakes will be OK


Is that yellow snow??

Kids have cried all day!


♫ What's this blobby thing?

Making eyebrows rise


So many ways to wreckorate!

Did Rudolph kill tonight?



♪ Kringle fails


Kringle fails

Santa's not OK


Better run, this isn't right

It's a one-course wrecky tray!



♪ Kringle fails


♪ Kringle fails


Rudolf says, "NO WAY"

♫ Oh what fun it is to chide


Especially to-daaaay!

Merry Chirtmas, everybody!

Bahahaha, that was hilarious! Merry Christmas Jen and John!

I really hope you'll be posting sweet Christmas cakes soon, maybe Friday if you'll take Christmas day off. My eyes/mind/heart need something to replace days of Christmas wrecks!

Words fail me - and THAT doesn't happen very often. I could write an essay about the kindergarten Christmas tree, the reindeer fails, and the vaguely obscene Santa. And we won't even mention the Chirtmas jelly fish.

Merry Chirtmas to Jon and Jen, and others who work on this site, and all the awesome commenters who have made me laugh these past few years!!

Never has anyone celebrated gravel like that last cake. There's a reason for that.

December 23, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterMoira

The very merriest of Christmasses to you, Jen and John, and thank you so much for another year of fun and laughter!

December 23, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterShkuz

Ahhh thanks for the needed giggles XD

Stay Wrecky!
...Or not....

Merry Christmas, Jen and John!

But that blobby thing is going to haunt my nightmares. O.O

Thank you for ALWAYS making me laugh out loud - any day, any time - when I need a lift - I visit - your commentary is more hysterical than the horrendous cake wrecks lol!

#3 is the Chirtmas worm sisters, crawling forth from their strawberry on Chirtmas eve to spread good cheer.
Merry Chirtmas, everyone!

December 23, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterFairly Ridiculous

And a Merry Chirtmas to you- Jen, John (THOJ) and all the regulars here on CW. You have no idea how many laughs you've all given me over the past year. I doff my cap to the collective wit on this site. Merry Merry Ho Ho Ho!

Lady Anne, my first thought on seeing the blobby thing was 'somebody yarn bombed a jellyfish'! Or maybe it's a new superhero - Super Strawberry and some ne'er-do-well is feeling the wrath of it's laservision?
Happy Holidays to all, but especially to our dedicated bloggers who help start my days with a smile... or a cringe.... and occasionally a whimper.

Niiice Moira :)

The cheesecake one is a good idea gone horribly awry. I am tempted to try for the family gathering.

December 23, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterGhost With Internet Access

Loved it! Now I need to get the new tv I bought for my Mom upstairs heh.

December 23, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterNathan R.

Merry Chirtmas cakewrecks. Thanks for the festive freakshow.

December 23, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterMillieP

Could the blobby thing might be a boxing strawberry? (*squints*)

December 23, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterBeth

Merry Chirtmas Jen, John, and all the wrecky minions who make my days brighter! Thank you!

December 23, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterLuLu

The strawberry thing is a dreaded. Turned sideways. The blue things are the outline of the handle, I think....

December 23, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterJamie


For you, Jen and John, I submit this lovely bit of parodic prose.

On the Twelfth Day of Wreckmas
Cake Wrecks gave to me
Twelve blobby Santas
Eleven melting snowmen
Ten dyspeptic reindeer
Nine carrot jockeys
Eight with no sprinkles (WHY???)
Seven spermlike balloons
Six spray-tanned man abs
Fiiiiiive cupcake cakes (ptui!)
Four under neat that
Three Congradations
Two mangled flags
And a year chock full of wrecky cheer!

Happy holidays. :)

December 23, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterKai Lowell

Merry Chirtmas Eve Eve everyone!

I do believe that "blobby thing" is a ski hat with pom pom on top and tassels to tie under your chin ... possibly???

December 23, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterJimJam

You have out-done yourselves-
Standing ovation!!!!
Merry Chirtmas!!!

December 23, 2016 | Unregistered Commenterjuice

I think the blue and red thing is maybe a mug, like with hot chocolate? Thats my best guess. But I think the first Santa was kind of cute.

December 23, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterMoonflwr912

Thanks to all - Jen, John (thoj), commenters, wreckers - and Merry Chirtmas!

Merry Chirtmas Too Awl, and Too Awl a Gooed Nhigt!

December 24, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterBADKarma

I think most of these wreckerators got into the Christmas cheer a little early lol and were drunk making these. Wow I never knew Santa could be so scary.

December 24, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterArlene Marie

Thanks J&J for all you do...and a very squashy Chirtmas to all!

December 24, 2016 | Unregistered Commenterhyphen8i

Oooo, demonic Rudolph choco candy apples! This cries out for a SuBee song, or perhaps a recipe project for Rudolph the Dalek candy pears -- "Mommy, somebody made choklit blobs with the sticks stuck in sideways".

December 24, 2016 | Unregistered Commenteral the k

What did I just see? That made me laugh so hard LOL!!!

December 24, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterJokerBoy

Oh, THAT is HILARIOUS! I LOVE your poem!

December 24, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterMarilee

Everyone should have a collection of demonic baby-eating reindeer (4th last pic), and a pooping Santa (3rd last). Let's hope we all get them for Chirtmas.

@Kai Lowell - outstanding work, love it!

December 24, 2016 | Unregistered Commenterkismet

Merry Christmas Jen and John!!!I hope you have a nice one!
Keep the wrecks coming!🎅🎂

December 24, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterJuno

That third one. ...I can't be the only one who sees a drunk strawberry wanting to engage in a battle of fisticuffs.

December 26, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterTriniMama

#6 looks like Lumpy Space Princess in a Santa costume. Deliberate? Maybe?? I hope???

December 26, 2016 | Unregistered Commenter*snerk*

OMG. I hope all had a very Mery Chirstmas holday! Looking forward to a very Wrecky 2017!
