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? ;)

A few of my favorite new submissions this week:


When you can't decide if you want a reindeer or an unenthusiastic Christmas ball:

Oh, deer.


When you try to do something nice for your Honey:

...but "Homey" don't play that.


When you want the cake flowers to match Mom's favorite china set, so you bring in a photo for reference:

There's a Be Our Guest joke in here somewhere, I just know it.
Now I want a picture of the plate slice on the matching plate. CAKE-CEPTION!


When special order birthday cakes just aren't what they used to be:

♫ My loaf
There's only you in my life
The only thing that's rye! ♪

♫ My first loaf
You're every breath I take
You're every bread I bake! ♫

WHAT. I'm on a roll!


And finally, when you try to be funny and order one of those "We're Just Here For The Sex" gender-reveal cakes, but the baker mishears you:

That's an inadvertent truth bomb right there, folks.


Thanks to Lauren E., Ange W., Cynthia F., Marcy W., & Janelle B., who know that's all we're here for, too.

It's true. I'm just here for the Special Order Birthday Cake, homey.

Oh, that last one is SO true! Love it

It's utterly depressing how stupid some people are.

Homey homey, how you wreck me, hah ah, homey homey
Homey homey, now this dreck see, hah ah
I know you've done this before
And you're going to do it some more
Because you're a wrecking ball.

Gotta love the last one. Hooray for truth, snacks, and hilarious cake wrecks! 😂

I'm saving the "Homey" cake idea. Hahaha

December 16, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterAcacia

And yet, even with the photo, the customer did not get Royal Albert Old Country Roses on the cake. I think this calls for a drop-kick.

Totally snorted at the "special order birthday cake", and then sang the song in my head in Lionel Richie and Diana Ross' voices. :)

What a shame: The homey cake is well done otherwise. Sure the customer didn't order it that way?

@Erica: A.k.a. the S.O.B. cake.

My motto for life - "We are just here for the snacks"

December 16, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterBluebonnet

That last one is true for me unfortunately, conversation is typically about subjects I don't care about or know nothing about, the entertainment is typically cheap and to top things off there are typically overly excited kids at these parties.

Thank you for the In Living Color reference. I can sleep well tonight!

December 16, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterCara

Was the last one meant for the Tallest ?

December 16, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterThe Former CRB

So, *are* there snacks? (That bread looks pretty good -- a little butter, a little cheese, a little wine...)

December 17, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterZippy

The obvious aside, the decorations on the "Cakeception" cake are beautiful.

Which just makes it more tragic, really.

December 17, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterBadKarma

That homey cake was so pretty too lol. But yup we are just here for the snacks would hold true for some people lol I would die laughing considering we are just here for the sex would also be taken in many different directions. Yep just for that Santa is giving me a lump of coal I just know it lmao.

December 17, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterArlene Marie

Bwa ha ha! "On a roll"! Sa-wheat!!

December 18, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterJMixx

I would actually think the Homey cake was intentional (and nicely done) if it weren't for the quotation marks.
