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? ;)

This Is NOT Your Grandma's Gravy

You know how people say the best part about Thanksgiving is the leftovers?

I'm guessing those people haven't seen these cakes.


Short straw gets the "gravy" slice!



Ooh, now here's a vision:

[squinting] I see a dill pickle voodoo doll, lying in a baseball mitt, wearing an ice cream hat.

So definitely time to check the expiration date on that "gravy."


Tell me this isn't the back of some old guy's head:

It totally is, right? And he's wearing a colorful scarf?

(P.S. "Goble goble, b**ches.")


Now, I know some of you are sad to say goodbye to the Thanksgiving leftovers, so let me assure you:

The Turkey Poo-Wangs WILL return.

The Dino Days Of "Bummer"


And this three is the number thou shalt bake.
(It is a nice three; I like the cake board especially.)


Now.... GO!

I mean, NOOOO!

Ok, enough Monty Python references.


Now on to the Firefly ones!

Curse your sudden but inevitable betrayal, bakers.



If you find yourself in need a gender reveal cake next Thanksgiving, then here's a cute option:

As a hardcore pun-lover, I'm digging how both "waddle" AND "wattle" could work here. (In fact, "wattle" would be better. Just sayin'.) Plus the blue and pink tail is fun.


But you know what's NOT fun?

When you ask a baker for that, and instead...

...get this.

Sad as that turkey is, I'm most outraged by the pun botchery. This is like the cake version of that relative who comments "I don't get it" on all your Facebook memes. "IT'S FUNNY BECAUSE THE DOG CAN'T SPELL, Aunt Claire. And looks surprised. See, it's a funny dog who can't spell and is surprised and OH NEVER MIND."


Thanks to Amber B., Maria W., & Shannon D. for the poultry in motion.
