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? ;)

It's Talk Like A Pirate Day, minions, but I really don't know much about bandwidth or encoding or seeding bitcoin frame rates, so I'm afraid I can't hook you up with free GoT downloads.


But I CAN show you how not to draw a skull and crossbones:

See, as a rule, you don't want knitting needles stuck in a bicycle seat.

But I'll admit the rules here are more like "guidelines."


What's that? You want the redhead?

Drink up, me hearty; he'll look better that way.


And speaking of really bad eggs:

X marks the spot where the evil egghead hovers.


Remember, if there's ONE thing Pirates like, it's bad puns, numbering things, and the letter...


Pirates also like to growl. And snowflakes. And... running in circles? Look, pirates like a lot of things, OK? Pirates have layers. Like an onion. Or chip dip. Or a big floofy skirt. Or... dang, can't think of anything else.


Thanks to Bailey G., Alison W., Robin H., & Christi for not giving me a SINGLE opportunity to make a good "seamen" joke. What kind of minions are you, anyway?

Also, I found it interesting to learn that aliens have pirates too.

September 19, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterSuBee

That "X marks the spot" cake resembles an alien, more than a pirate.

Nice treasure map! Just put a skull and crossbones on it and it'll be perfect.

Pirates are like onions? Oh, you leave 'em out in the sun, they get all brown, start sproutin' little white hairs...

September 19, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterAngelaS

These people should walk the plank

September 19, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterMindy1

I think that last one is for the Family Circus pirate.

September 19, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterCraig

Huh? Bandwidth? Bitcoin? Did you mean this for some other post??

September 19, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterJessica

Yay cup cake cake!

September 19, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterLouise

What happened to all the rum?

(Hey, I need *some* way to deal with Monday & all these cakes...)

@Jessica -- I think she was referring to media/internet piracy. It threw me at first too!

"Knitting needles stuck in a bicycle seat" made me actually laugh out loud. Thank goodness I don't share an office!

Yep, egghead pirate looks more like alien pirate to me.

Love the computer piracy jokes :)

September 19, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterAnnette

I thought they liked the letter X. X as in, X marks the spot.

September 19, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterLouise

Pirates may love the letter ARRRR, but their first love is the C!

@sendingtheclowns πŸ˜„πŸ˜„πŸ˜„

It's a Shrek reference.

September 19, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterAngelaS

Rrrrrrrr! It's the dreaded pirate-opus.. Only 4 of it's arms got chopped off, matey! Rrrrrrrrr!

September 19, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterSue W.

These are just Aaarrrrrful!!!

September 19, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterMolly

And... running in circles?
Yes, β€œWhen in trouble, when in doubt, run in circles, scream 'n shout!”

September 19, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterSally G

I just lost it on the Pirates have layers bit.

September 19, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterDegera

I would swear cakes 2 and 3 were amateur efforts.

September 19, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterAlison in Indiana

Off-topic, but I'm very encouraged to know I'm not the only one who uses the word "floofy" when describing articles of clothing. :-)

September 19, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterCookieD'oh

Oh man lol. I set my Facebook to only use Pirate language and it is hilarious just like these wrecks. Half look like aliens. Scary rum loving aliens.

September 20, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterArlene Marie

Two things (which may or may not have already been mentioned to some degree or another, but I didn't read through all the comments).

A. That is not an inverted egg cake. That is CLEARLY an extraterrestrial head. Knowing the way wreckerators work, he might be surveying his crop "circle"... which is an X.

And 2. Another thing with layers: "Parfait! Evr'ybody like parfait!"

September 20, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterKay S

@AngelaS: It's tommorrow, and I just saw this, so maybe you won't, but thanks! I saw that movie, but too long ago to maybe I didn't.

September 20, 2016 | Unregistered Commentersendingtheclowns

Parfait got layers. Everybody like parfait. :)

September 20, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterTorka

Codpieces are layers, right?

Sorry, spent some time at Kansas City Ren Fest...

September 21, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterMedith

That last one looks like a deconstructed Winnie The Pooh...
