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? ;)

- Jen

Below, you will find three options for contacting Cake Wrecks.  Think of it as a choose-your-own-adventure in email correspondence.

IMPORTANT! Please do not send photo collages with big arrows and words like "FAIL" written over them. We can't post those.


Now, what do you want to do?


Submit Your Wreck

If the photo (not necessarily the cake) belongs to you, submit it here.*


Submit Someone Else's Wreck

If the photo does NOT belong to you-you found it online, for example-then submit it to notmywreck(at)*
