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? ;)

The Cake Wrecks Guide To Facebook Unfriending

Warning: Adult subject matter. Kinda. Not really.


It's Unfriend Day over on Facebook, a day to sit down, reflect, and finally ask ourselves, "Who the heck is that guy, and why am I friends with him?"

Now, I can't tell you EXACTLY who to unfriend, because I don't know the name of the person who decided stretch leggings are not "business appropriate attire." Still, I can offer you a few general guidelines.


The Over-Sharer

We also don't need to see that weird growth thing on your elbow, Tom.


The Drunk Serial Poster

Nothing says "Mistakes were made last night" quite like a 4AM photo dump of blurry faces, fire hydrants, and the bait-and-tackle aisle at Wal-Mart.


The Vague-Booker

It's mysterious and dramatic and they can't tell you ANYTHING until you give them lots and lots of attention.


The Racist

Sadly I have even more accurate cakes for this, but I'm not posting them.
You're welcome.


That Person Who Thinks Every Onion Headline is Real

[Photo deleted because we finally checked Snopes, and it was fake.]


The Humble Brag

(Via Humblebrag, because I actually tried, but still couldn't make this stuff up.)


The Always-Irrationally-Angry

Often related to All-Caps-McRanty and Extreme-Politics-R-Us


The Creepy Stalker

Granted, we all do a little innocent FB stalking from time to time, but there are sometimes-subtle clues that it may have gone too far.

This is one of them.


And to end on a positive note, definitely keep the friends who post Cake Wrecks.

That's the sign of excellent moral character, right there.

You don't understand
40 is not, if you are
I must unfriend you

I need to have The Drunk Serial Poster cake explained. Just, how?

November 17, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterDegera

Adolph Minion. Now THAT'S despicable!

November 17, 2015 | Unregistered Commenterkayk

My husband is the McRanty, unfortunately. I can't really unfriend him...

November 17, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterHeather A

Looks like the paper got folded or something. Probably should read: 40 is not OLD if you are A TREE.

November 17, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterBitch Hedberg

40 is not if you are tree

I believe that's "40 is not f-u-r-t"...
A) It's sad that I can read that.
B) That doesn't make it any less wreckage.

Flirting with the FB censors with that first cake, aren't you, Jen?! I mean, it's not a turkey cake, but it is a racy upside down cactus for sure!

November 17, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterCBushLite

Thanks for the laughs

The Racist : "I have even more accurate cakes for this"… I don't have words to comment this. O_o
And about FB : Maybe the Over Sharer and the Creepy Stalker are friends and made these cakes for each other.

Is the first cake celebrating a vasectomy?

November 17, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterAnonyMe

Thank you, thank you, for making me laugh moments after I cried (again). Nobody can ever pay back the weight measured in wiping back tears with a laugh.

Thank you, thank you!

November 17, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterTinkCPH

Forty is not old if you are a tree

November 17, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterAnon

I really thought the first one was "Over-SHEARER." Which is, ya know, appropriate with the scissors...

November 17, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterScaperMama

@AnonyMe--I had assumed that it was, in fact, in celebration of a vasectomy. Until you asked. Then it occurred to me that it would be funny if it *weren't*. Suppose, for example, it was used to announce Mom's LAST PREGNANCY? Or as a sarcastic "Quit waking me up at 3 AM with your loud parties, neighbor, or ELSE!"

November 17, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterJMixx

I'm not fond of humble brags, but I actually think that cake is kind of awesome.
The words may say "Sorry For Being Fabulous" but the frosting says "NO I'M NOT!"

November 17, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterBecca

OMG, @Anon speaks Wreck! You need to hire him and/or her!!

November 17, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterSuBee

Omg. Bevause we finally checked Snopes. Lmao.

November 17, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterJess

Hee --- I want more info on that last cake!

November 17, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterErica

The first one is for real a vasectomy cake that a local radio dj posted on the radio stations Facebook page the day he went for the snip!

November 17, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterMandy B

Could you please link to the snopes article in question? My phone just goes to the homepage.


November 17, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterMe

The vagina cake.. why? Lmao who would give someone a cake like this? I fear the person that did lol.

November 18, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterArlene Marie

The Snopes one make me snort out loud. Thank you for that.

November 18, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterLeslie

Oh my God Cake Wrecks AND Hyperbole and a Half?! DAY=MADE!

November 18, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterEmma

Is the individual pictured on Cake #1 just getting a vasectomy? It appears that he's being completely de-balled.

November 19, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterHowlindawgs

Im guessing the snopes part refers to a dino cake & his supposedly symbolic legs... The dino was cute.

November 26, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterMe 2

What's the first one? Happy neuter day?

December 7, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterMatt

The Humble Brag was not a wreck in my opinion, it's really fabulous (I want a cake with the same colors)
