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? ;)

Say Again?

It's a fundamental fact of life that the more ridiculously off base a misspelling, the funnier it is.

So, "Congradulations?" Not particularly funny. "Controdulatior?" Funny.

And this?



Then there are the times when everything is technically spelled correctly, but...

(I don't know what's happening here, but I "like" it.)


I guess we can't judge this next wreckerator too harshly, since "Bon Voyage" isn't actually English; it's French. And we can't expect bakers to know French, now, can we? OF COURSE NOT. So don't even THINK about laughing. Seriously. It's a simple, honest-to-goodness mistake that ANYONE could easily ma...uh.

Oh, dear.


Never mind.

Is it wrong to laugh at these even though I misspell cake wrecks at least 75% of the time I write it in google or the address bar?
(Don't look at me like that, I can't have favourites at a shared computer at work.)

I can't help but feel that Gibby is being singled out here...(don't let the door hit ya on the way out, GIBBY!)

OMG what are they even saying XD

Maybe the first one was meant to be some private joke about bosoms, gone wrong? Like it was supposed to say "Boob by bust" for some reason?

Oh, the ole brainpan is always trying to make sense of things, but it shouldn't, not around here.

I initially read that first one as "Bust of duck"

Did anybody else read "We home 'Family'" in Madea's voice? No? Just me?

Try our newest fragrance; inspired by birthday cake, childhood memories, and the ears of devastated hope and dreams.

Remember; Goob, by Bust of Luck.

I wonder if "Gibby" was the baker's attempt at spelling what the customer pronounced as "G'bye."

December 7, 2016 | Unregistered Commenterjbrecken

Of course Bon Voyage is an English word. We get all our words from somewhere else. It's just that the French are still using it. But pretty much up until the 20th century, every single English word came from somewhere else. We just don't think about it because nobody really speaks Anglo-French, Church-Slavonic, or High German any more.

Maybe Goobby and Gibby are related? And why is Adrian's name so small -- it's like they don't want him to have a good time...

As usual, SuBee wins the Interwebbies today! :)

You know what's the most sad about that first cake? Those balloons actually look like balloons. I mean, balloons are such a hard concept for wreckies, and to get these so right...and then ruin it with that text.
