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? ;)

Accidentally Insulting Birthday Cakes

I generally don't post name misspellings, because let's face it: there are people out there who spell Jennifer with a Q. Names are hard.

Still, sometimes a baker will botch a name in such a hilariously insulting way that it. is. magic.

 

Don't you agree, Whitney?

Talk about a bellyache.

 

And what "Bart" hasn't known this pain?

 

Believe it or not, this guy's not fat. He's just a little Cubby.

Good luck losing that nickname, though.

 

Is Beth happy they didn't dot that second "I"?

YOU BETCHA.

 

Funnily enough, I think Bobby did request some of these on his cake...

 

And perhaps the most subtle insult of all:

"IF that's your REAL name...."

 

On the one hand, kudos to this bakery for recognizing that a boy can like pink fairies:

On the other hand, little Jess was PISSED.

 

(If it's any consolation, Jess, they messed up Jeff's cake, too:)

 

And finally, while I don't know which name this Asian bakery thought they were writing on their display cake, I'm pretty sure it wasn't this one:

0.0

Ok, gang, take five.

I think my eyes are bleeding.
