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 Weirdest Apology Cake I've Seen Yet

At long last, I think I've finally found it, you guys:

The World's Most Interesting Conversation Starter

Yep, I suggest you single types out there bring this to your next Bingo mixer, luau party, rave, etc*

[*I haven't dated in a while, but I trust these are still the hippest happenings.]

Or, if you're NOT single, just think how handy this will be at the next family reunion!


A few sample openers:

How do you accidentally pee in a dryer? (Feel free to sketch your answers on this napkin.)

How do you not KNOW whether or not you accidentally peed in a dryer?
Follow Up: And have *you* ever been that drunk?
What kind of relationship do you think would be appeased [snerk] by a cake apology for the aforementioned potential accidental dryer peeing?
Follow Up: Could you see yourself in that kind of relationship?


And most importantly:
Are you going to eat that?


Thanks to Katie for putting a new spin on the #1 apology cake.

Wow. One way of apologizing, I guess. You got the most important thing there, Jen. Do you think that's yellow cake with chocolate frosting?

January 12, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterMaureen S

Too bad the writing isn't in yellow. And that chocolate medallion or plastic pick in the center... It looks like half an apple, a baguette, and something else I can't identify. What is the deal there?

January 12, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterBin

There's a real missed oppeertunity here; the icing could have been yellow!

Maybe the uncertainly lies in the ownership of the dryer. Perhaps the giver of the cake knows that he or she did, in fact, pee in someone's dryer, but is unsure whether the recipient of the cake is the owner of said dryer?

Perhaps this person gave out several cakes in hopes of finding the owner of the urinally enhanced dryer.

My response cake would read:
You apologized with a cake,
for peeing in my dryer.
Here is my cake in response
to You my new dryer buyer!

Note: Remember friends, revenge is not best served cold. Revenge is best served with cake, Lemon Yellow Cake in this instance. would you take a bite? NO? Smart move.

I think the giver knows but is downplaying the knowledge.

I've heard about a half-asleep drunk peeing on a mini-fridge. But not in it.

Maybe the giver is a dog.

Pee in someone's dryer when you were trashed?


Simply give them a cake, and you'll be #1 again!

January 12, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterScaperMama

Ick! But -- what's the decorative (?) item in the center??

January 12, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterBecky

I'm not sure I would WANT to be reminded of an incident like this. The less said, the better. (And that includes icing!)

January 12, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterSaraCVT

I cannot imagine the back story on this cake, but it must be really funny and weird O_o XD

January 12, 2016 | Unregistered Commentermindy1

Alllllrighty then.
Yep, this is definitely the weirdest apology cake you have ever posted on here. I don't even want to know the story behind this one, although I think we can safely assume copious amounts of alcohol were involved.

January 12, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterStephanie

Auck auck auck. Soooooooooo obviously the cake arrived AFTER the deed and....maybe the receiver of the cake has dry clothes w/urine on them? Man, that is GROSS... and I'm supposing that the pee-er was also the wreck-o-rater or rather person responsible for the

Holy Moley Batman - that is just wrong. So wrong.

It looks like the flotsom in the middle is a logo of some sort. Would you use this cake to advertise your bakery? I think not.

January 12, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterBluebonnet

That thing in the middle is the logo for a Southest grocery store Harris Teeter. Kind of an upscale grocer.

January 12, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterMike

* I * haven't been that drunk but my buddy's sister was, she pulled her pants down & used the kitchen trashcan!

January 12, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterT

The only appropriate thing for the middle would be an urinal cake...amirite?

January 12, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterBooka

The thing in the middle is the logo for Harris Teeter. And no, it's not yellow cake but chocolate all the way through. I once had to write in mini cupcakes 'I'm sorry I got so drunk. ILU.' One word per cupcake.

January 12, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterGina

Over the phone: "Get out of the house NOW!!! The call is coming from the kitchen and we think the stalker is in the kitchen with the oven on!"

Sorry, funny cake but I suspect shenanigans. The cake itself looks pro, the writing looks way too amateurish.

January 12, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterAl K

Not only do I recognize the flotsam in the middle (Harris Teeter logo) but I suspect this may have been ordered by my cousin. He's used a few interesting places when drunk (sister's bedroom trashcan, trunk of a car, the box for a recently installed ceiling fan that was leaning against the wall in the kitchen...)

January 12, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterDegera

Does that make it a Urinal cake?

January 12, 2016 | Unregistered Commenterkit

My friend's dad used to lift the tablecloth and pee on the DR table, but he had dementia. Not sure about this one.

January 12, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterLady Anne

I had a roommate for a few months who got so drunk I found him peeing in the dishwasher. He also had a court-ordered breathaizer on hepis van, if that tells you anything.

January 12, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterKatie

Well after giving the person that cake I am sure all is forgiven...not lol. Shoot they would buy a new dryer and never hear the end of it lol.

January 13, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterArlene Marie

This reminds me of the episode of Black Books where Dylan Moran's character Bernard is drunk and gets lost on his way to the toilet. From 20 minutes in. Very funny (though he only gave an apology pineapple!)

January 13, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterNiceOrc

Ok, my husband thinks the aforementioned grocery store logo flotsam was in the cake when the person bought the cake, and then at home this person wrote the apology on the cake around the logo (especially given how well the cake is decorated and how different the writing is...although it isn't the first time we've seen the contrast...).

That answers one question...but there are about a hundred more...

January 13, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterTwinMom

The decorative piece is the logo for grocery store Harris Teeter

January 13, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterSouthern mom

Could the cake have been given on behalf of a cat with a weak bladder?

January 13, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterAlice Shortcake

Drunks pee in all sorts of places, closets, room humidifiers (I was the victim of this one - imagine your apartment being humidified with essence of male....) Makes one glad when they reach the bathroom and "just" use the floor..

January 13, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterAlison in Indiana

And THIS they spell correctly.

January 13, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterKOJohnson

One night, a female neighbor walked into our college dorm room, peed in my roommate's closet, then walked back out like it was a normal event. We did not get an apology cake, but I think a few pairs of shoes were replaced.

January 13, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterJen B

Maybe if you're half asleep or drunk and the toilet and the dryer are next to each other?!

January 15, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterCC

Hopefully, it was a sponge cake. =)

February 11, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterMary Malone

The hyphen is in the wrong place. Is no one else bothered by this??
