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? ;)

Dear Santa... It's Complicated

[WARNING: Bad word ahead! Clear out the kids!]



Today is the start of Dear Santa week, so time to get those letters out to St. Nick, minions!


This is when you tell Santa how you didn't murder anyone this year even though you really really wanted to, so you totally deserve that Benedict Cumberbatch body pillow and lifetime subscription to Wicked Whoopies. You know, just as a "for instance."

Of course, personally assessing your own "good" or "bad" behavior beyond non-murder can be a little dicey. I mean, who HASN'T slipped up from time to time


or accidentally said what they were thinking out loud


or sent an in-law a giant horse's.... butt?


Ahh, but not to worry! One baker has done all the work for us this year, perfectly summing up our collective behavior during 2018 in a single, surprisingly eloquent cookie cake:


But there were extenuating circumstances, Santa, honest.


Thanks to Mark M., Alyssa P., Jennifer D., & Jodi N. for the capital letter.

Is That A Baby In Your Pants Or Are You Just Happy To See Me?

Kids today, with all their weird hobbies:

(PS - Oh! Hey! Think this is Isabella?)


Ariel's company wanted their vision statement written on a cake, but made the rookie mistake of e-mailing a cellphone photo of their office wall plaque as a reference. [shaking head] Tsk tsk, guys.

The result was predictable, but their vision statement makes it delightfully ironic:

Now if only we could empower technology to transform wreckerators.


One question, oh-so-many answers:

Let's... START... withhow... MUCH... I hear William Shatner... RIGHTNOW.


And finally, that awkward moment when you can't tell if the cake is for a baby shower or a bachelorette party:

For the record: I still don't know.


Thanks to Claudia R., Ariel D., Aubrae W., & Amanda F., who aren't happy to see me, but DO have bowling balls in their pants.
