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? ;)

SO FUNNY! You really do need to post warnings about not eating or drinking when reading Cake Wrecks! :)

These may be the best uses I've seen for ANY of those memes!

November 16, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterClassic Steve

I snorted at the Octerber meme! :) Thanks for the Monday laughs!

I really needed this laugh today, thank you!

I was so focused on the damaged cakes that I didn't notice the Ass. ( orted ) at first .

Octember, huh? Well, Nowonder! Should have said Septober.

I really want to know which occasion warrants a "Sorry about Dead People" cake. The script was so nice and everything was spelled correctly too.

November 16, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterGinger

Those are HILARIOUS!!!

November 16, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterLesli

I totally snerted at the Octerber Birthders.
I don't always laugh at memes, but when I do, they're Cake Wrecks!

Re cake 2 the first your ... you're*

November 16, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterBriana

The last two... OMG, I can't breathe!! What's perhaps the funniest is that the Goosebumps girl is actually a real person. Poor girl. I wonder how old she is now....

November 16, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterAngie

These made me laugh sooooo hard, esp. Ermahgerd Octerber Berthders! hahahahaha

Each time I see this cake featured, I like to pretend it's for a medium who can't sleep or watch her favorite television show or even go grocery shopping because the dead people will just NOT leave her alone. So, to make her feel better, someone bought her cake. lol

November 16, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterCharlie

I lost it at Grumpy Cat.

Then I lost it again at the skewed "congratulations" on the last meme.

Jolly good show today!

November 16, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterAmy H.

Hey, I read The Help. Those could actually be ass cakes, and I don't want to know.

November 16, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterMiss Mindy

The ermahgerd girl is now a 26 year old nurse, so hopefully she has seen some very special, medically inspired butt cakes.

November 16, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterSuBee

Ermahgerd! Ner Er kern lerf werthert ferling gerlter! Thanks, SuBee! (Unfortunately, unlike Ermahgerd Girl, the photos of me when *I* was in my awkward teenage years did *not* all result from my playing a character. I was the kid wearing the orange gaucho pants, blue-and-white striped knee socks, and plaid poncho. Yes, really. Ermahgerd indeed.)

No offense, but I'm not really a big fan of fanny maymayz. Honestly, you sound like an old guy trying to be hip with the kids.

[Editor's note- Sorry you didn't like the post, Anon.(Can I call you Anon?) I should have realized that I was just too old to put cakes with memes. Now get off my lawn! -john (the old guy trying to make you smile)]

You know that R almost looks like an m….making it October……does anyone remember that?

November 16, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterIsolder74

You DO know the guy who invented the term "meme" is 74 years old now, right?
I'm sure he was just trying to "be hip with the kids" though.

Cake Wrecks is still one of the best sources of free pastry-related entertainment on the entire internet, and that's an amazing accomplishment at any age.

November 16, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterKat

OH my. that last meme. I love the text manipulation so much.

November 16, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterKristenSeu

I would love the story behind the sorry about dead people cake. Is it from Jason Vorhees? What can it be? Lol either way I can't stop laughing.

Before Jerry Garcia's passing, he and his band made regular stops in the town where I grew up. You could always tell when it was getting to be that time, because you'd start seeing hitchhikers who looked like refugees in tie-dye along the interstate. They'd roll into town, smelling of sweat, dirty clothes, stinky feet, and cheap incense, pitch tents along the grass verge of the mall parking lot, and "hang out." There was a lot of milling around, smoking of marijuana, and dropping of acid, with occasional serpentine dancing or rigid, staring freak-outs. Then the concert would happen, and the next day they'd all be gone, lugging the tents, tie-dye, and drugs, but leaving a trace of the smell and ten thousand wrappers of various kinds, which would blow around in the wind until they choked the local birds or washed into the Chesapeake Bay. I started noticing it when I was 17 years old, and each "Deadhead" season seemed worse than the last, as the hippies aged and got smellier and the trash piled higher. That "Sorry About Dead People" cake would have been entirely appropriate at my house.

ERMAGERD!! i laughed so hard i gave myself a headache!! the gerl with the Goosebumps books is absolutely priceless, and i'm pretty sure that's how i look when i get a Doctor Who-themed gift.....i had to go back and look at the Laurence Fishburn cakes again, that ASS CAKES is hard to see on the plastic. thank Gerd.

November 17, 2015 | Unregistered Commenterdawn

Cramming the letters in on the Boromir meme was sheer genius. XD

November 18, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterBecky

Laughing. So. Hard. Cannot. Breathe.

November 18, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterKathy

John, thanks, I needed that. Hahahahahahahahaha ... guffaw!

November 19, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterMary Kay

.....I used to read goosebumps books and loved them.....

is it sad that I recognize the cover to 'it came from beneath the sink!' but can't recognize the book right in the front and that I was so focused on THAT that I didn't pay attention to the cake wreck?

December 22, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterNathan R.

Thanks for making me laugh
