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? ;)

My Uncle Thought He Was Saint Jerome

One of my all-time favorite movies, Ghostbusters, turns 34 years old today. Thirty four! I think that calls for a song... about calling people.

Who you gonna call?


♬If there's something weird

And it don't look good
(There's a hole in this cake.)

Who you gonna call?


I ain't afraid of no ghost!

Pretty sure that's a penguin...


I ain't afraid of no ghost!

Okay, who brought the dog?


♬If you're seeing things
running through your head



Who you gonna call?

Who you gonna call?


Thanks to Mackie, Jeanne, Mandy D., Andrea E., Laureen, Sarah A., Kit, and Kirk K. who is apparently also not a fan of ducks:

I suspect fowl play.

Freud Would Have A Field Day


Or as we like to call her, "Tripod."

(That was the most family-friendly joke I could come up with. HI, MOM.)


If you write online a lot, then this next one is for you.

The problem with ordering via e-mail:

Now, everyone laughing, go ahead and explain it to the rest of the class.


Sarah sent in her wedding cake as a "missed mark" wreck, but to be honest, I'm a lot more interested in her choice of table decor:

Please tell me you cut the cake with the Klingon bat'leth, Sarah. PLEASE.


Giving new meaning to the name "dump truck:"

What a load of... ooh, hey, icing!


"Uh, you guys, Jimmy's cake is a little... off... don't you think?"

"Well, we weren't going to say anything, but yeah."

"Think he knows?"



Before you ask, this kid's name was Finn. FINN.

[wincing] Oooh, not good.
I'm guessing Trey snapped this pic right before the cake was hit by lightning.


And while we're talking botched names, look what the baker did to poor Tucker:

(Seriously. HOW IS THAT A 'T'?!)
