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? ;)

Don't MAKE Me Count To Threeth

Remember the old saying?


"Twice is a coincidence...


"Three times is a pattern...


"And four times means there's some kind of voodoo curse involved."

Baker asked, " how many cake wrecks? " I said, "23th."

At least none of these look like they have 2rds on them.

@WorrierPrincess--love it!

This always perplexes me. Is this how these people actually SAY dates? "We got married on the twentythreeth of Octember" (Or was it Nowonder?)

September 2, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterLady Anne

As they used to say, "23th-skidoo!"

The universe is trying to tell me something. I read this post at 9:23(th) am. Whoa. I'm not sure if this means I will be lucky today, or if I will be like Kenickie picking up his 'lucky' penny only to get whacked in the head with a car door...

I just have to 1nder about the st8th of 9nd of these decorators.
And if you can actually read what I wrote, then you're a 9rd, too.

@ WorrierPrincess - PERFECT(H) !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ROTFLMAO(TH)

This doesn't give me the warm & fuzzies about the younger generation. I doubt it's a voodoo curse - just plain old dumbness(th)! Pretty funny though(th)! meo

Oh my goodness, 23th?! And four times?! *cough*splutter*trying to laugh discreetly* Seriously - Christine's and Jessie's cakes would have been just fine without the number. Happy 23th Birthday, Christine and Jessie and Mike and whoever!

My six-year-old found the mistakes... and told me what it SHOULD say. What is the minimum age to work in a bakery?

September 2, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterMommy25Melody

Maybe that's why they left the "15th" off my daughter's cake this year. They just couldn't figure out how to spell it

I used to work for a company that printed business cards. One time we had an order from a dentist whose office was in "Suite 2th" (get it?) Might be time to check for nitrous oxide leaks there, pal.

My friends son went to get her a 59th birthday cake at a local grocery store bakery, now I have been a decorator at a grocery store for 27 years. I wish I took a picture for this site. The cake was beautiful Yellow and Red roses and buds. When they wrote on the cake instead of splitting Happy and Birthday they wrote in n one line that went down the trim, but what got me, other than the printed the sentiment, it was written with a leaf tip instead of a writing tip. He paid 31.00 for that cake. I would've been embarrassed to claim I wrote on that cake.

No, no. 4 times is "enemy action"! Doesn't that make the narrative much more interesting? Like, enemy of ... correct grammar? Common sense? Sanity?

September 2, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterDeb Morrissey

I was hoping to be the twenty-thirth comment, but I'm not going to wait around for it.

September 2, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterR3test

Yes! My husband's birthday is the 22nd and he always says 22th and totally thinks it is correct. We argue about it every year.

September 2, 2015 | Unregistered Commenterbbb

Well done, jackwire! I think Worrier Princess wins this one, though. ROFL!

We should all be ashamed of ourselves, making fun of this poor Wreckerator and his/her speech impediment. Should, but aren't.

Today's my 51rd birthday but I don't feel a day older than foughty-nine

September 2, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterEM

Worrier Princess wins 1th place!

September 2, 2015 | Unregistered Commenterjackwire

On my way to work this morning, I ended up behind a panel van with the business's address stickered on the back and noticed something that made me mentally exclaim, "This is like those idiot decorators who don't know their ordinal numbers on Cake Wrecks!" The street the company is on? 23st.

September 2, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterGizmoodles

Since there were 22 comments when I got to the site, I think I'm the 23th commenter! Yay!

Thank you for a nice place to visit online. So much trash in cyberspace. You guys just make me smile and laugh. Good Job!

Clearly this is for the three-and-twentieth birthday.

September 4, 2015 | Unregistered Commenteroneblankspace
