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? ;)

John(HOJ), BRAVO! Finally a Hello parody I love! Better than the original by far!

Hahahahaha!! I see that picture on the wall there John. Well done!

Hello, can you hear me
I'm in New York reading Cake Wrecks while I'm drinking my coffee
I forgot what I might see
Now I spit out my hot beverage and it fell upon my feet

Thanks John (THOJ)

OMG what are the stories on those cakes!?!?!?!Also the cartoons are hilarious XD

January 15, 2016 | Unregistered Commentermindy1

Yes, those are all sorry excuses for cakes.

Epic, john (the hubby of Jen). Epic.

Love the John cartoons and the Lily pic. On the herpes cake there is a yellow note on the right side of the picture, and at first I thought it said, "Dear Dad." Yikes! That would add a whole 'nuther level of ickiness to that cake!!

Good one, JthoJ!

You made me snort while I had a mouthful of lunch & it went down the wrong way & I almost died. Still worth it though!

Hello, it's me,
I was wondering if maybe you still got the odd herpes
Should I tell you about the scooter,
Or that I have slept with your Mum, and how I love her hooters
And that wet spot between us?
Was not the cat...

Hello from the bakeryyyyyyyy,
I'll use a cake to say sorryyyyyyy
For the crash, the blisters, and bedding your Ma
And the bones you broke when you got hit by that car,

Hello from the baking aaaaaaaaaaile,
I know just how to make you smiiiiiiiiiile
Here's a cake plus camel, I don't really know
Why the 'Woop Woop' 's there, is he a Juggalo?

the best part was the Lily cameo! :D

Rumor Has It that I Found a Boy, it may have been Someone Like You John(thoJ), but he gave me the Cold Shoulder and I had say Don't You Remember, When We Were Young and we were Painting Pictures, using Many Shades of Black? They were all better than these weird cakes.
So I'll Be Waiting, with Every Glance, cuz I'm sure you're saving the Best For Last. This is my favorite blog and I Can't Let Go, I'm Crazy for You. That's It, I Quit, I'm Moving On.

This blog was so much better than that original song, which raises valid concerns about drunk dialing old boyfriends. She has an amazing voice though :)

January 15, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterCBushLite

Uh-oh! I think Stick-Adele is in love. Kind of your own fault though, John. If you weren't such a catch, she would've moved on by now.

Love apology cakes! I mean, what better apology is there than cake? Well, don't answer that. Adele might be listening and taking notes.

January 15, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterKW

I love the John cartoons! That is, the cartoons that John does, not cartoons about johns, cuz that would probably be gross, not funny. Although, if John did a john cartoon, I'm sure it would be hilarious. And also gross. But mostly hilarious.

When I heard this song by Adele, I immediately pictured a poor phone connection between her and Lionel Richie:

Adele: Hello?

Lionel: Hello!

Adele: I was wondering if after all these years you'd like to meet…

Lionel: Is it me you're looking for?

Adele: Hello, can you hear me?

Lionel: Hello! I've just got to let you know
'cause I wonder where you are
and I wonder what you do…

Adele: I'm in California dreaming about who we used to be When we were younger and free…

Lionel: Hello!
Is it me you're looking for?

Adele: Hello from the other side
I must have called a thousand times
To tell you I'm sorry for everything that I've done
But when I call you never seem to be home

Lionel: Hello!
Is it me you're looking for? For I haven't got a clue…

Adele: Hello from the outside!
At least I can say that I've tried…

January 15, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterJust Andrea

John (thoJ), this is a brilliant post. I can hear Adele singing throughout. I especially love Lily's cameo!

And all the commenter songs today are exceptional, especially Just Andrea.

Great work, everyone!

January 15, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterAnne-Marie

Showing my age, but whenever mentions "That song called Hello", Lionel Richie is the first thing that pops up in my mind.

"Hello. Is it me you're looking for?"

January 15, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterEddieLee

Lol loved this so much! Though I doubt a cake can fix the Sorry I slept with your mom thing. Running for the hills could work better lol.

January 16, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterArlene Marie

@Just Andrea-Perfect - It's Just like a conversation with my mother-in-law.

January 16, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterSuBee

@Just Andrea - That made me laugh out loud!

January 16, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterSeabird

I love the "please don't eat" note on the herpes cake!

January 16, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterBrandy

Love the song parody! Yeah, every time I listen to that song I wonder why she bothers when he clearly doesn't want to talk to her anymore. (He's "never home"? Sure he is. He sees your name on the Caller ID and says "I'm not talking to that crazy--uh, witch.")

The cakes, though . . . I kinda don't want to know the story behind these. And I don't think cake is going to make up for sleeping with someone's mom. (Okay, *that* story I might want to hear.)

January 16, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterRoxy Random

I thought the camel cake read Woof Woof! Oops! Never mind.

January 16, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterChicago

Thanks to all for the explanation. I don't follow Adele, and I had to bring up a YouTube clip with the lyrics because I'll be darned if I could understand more than 65% of what she was saying.

That said, the posting and cartoons are excellent, especially now that I understand. Thanks!

January 18, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterMary Kay

Thanks, guys. : )

@ Mary Kay: Yeah, clearly Adele took the Mic Jagger Enunciation correspondence course. I can hardly ever understand all her lyrics.

January 19, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterJust Andrea

Don't know what's better, this post or Just Andrea's song!
