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? ;)

These Bakers Either Have No Idea What Football Is, Or They're The Best Trolls Ever

And I can't be the only one hoping they're trolling, right?


How To Make Football Cakes When You Have No Idea What Football Is:

Step 1) Keep it simple:


Step 2) ... but happy!


Step 3) Maybe try making a football?



Or better yet, skip ahead to step 4.


Step 4) Use lots of generic statements that could apply to any sport, like, "What a game!"


And, "Big Score!"


Or the always popular, "Best Wishes!"



Ah, the Flotsam is strong with this one.

Though I find your lack of cake... disturbing.


Thanks to Jennifer B., Morgan S., Emily R., Mary, Julia T., Ginny B., & Benjamin B. for the football pile.

Pile-of-pooh-frosting with football flotsam? Really? Gross!

February 1, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterMaureen S

Aww I kind of want to hug big score football, he looks sad.

My meemaw always sang this to me when I was depressed about the Colts:

Go football
Happy football
Ugly CCC (ptooie)
Score! Football
Flotsam football
Big Wowee

"Wow What A Game" or "Wow What a Gonnle"'s a sentiment that follows every competition in either locker room and across all media platforms BUT why on a cookie poorly decorated like an unwanted Christmas ornament? Again, bakers, I'm so confused. And preparing my pizza order.

That pile o poo with helmets so accurately reflects my feelings toward football, or more specifically, its unreasonably rabid fans. (Unless you have a gambling problem, is the outcome of this contest REEEEAAAALY going to change your life that much?)

Being from Texas, I am off to enter the witness protection program after that admission. Hey, Unhappy Eyebrow Bug, wanna come?

February 1, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterAngelaS

Seriously? A pile of poo frosting with some plastic sticks?

February 1, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterHolly D

Of course, "Big Score" would be a bad message to a golfer.

WHY did I sing that to the tune of "Soft Kitty" It just seemed to fit best, and now I has the Soft Kitty earworm...

These are great! And no eye bleach needed later. Happy Monday everyone.

Step 3 is a Thwomp !!

Go Team! Do That Thing!! Make That Point! Balls!!

February 1, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterKelley

The 2nd cake, Happy Football, is clearly repurposed and the yellow smear underneath looks suspiciously like a "Birthday".

February 1, 2016 | Unregistered Commentersue

Pretty sure this is what would happen if I were asked to decorate a football cake. There might also be a "go team!" but I am neither a football fan nor a cake decorator.

@SuBee, Moonpie would be so proud of you right now. He's from Texas and football is big over there. Perfect song parody. Thank you from a fellow BBT fan. I'm sure others would agree with me.

A the 49s. A big pile of poo seems quite appropriate to me! AngelaS - A as a former Texan transplanted against my will to northern California, I feel the least I do when the Cowboys are not in the payoffs :)

February 1, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterBluebonnet

The"Big Score" football looks like it's frowning, too.

GO FOOTBALL! (Honestly, that's how I cheer for this sport.)

February 1, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterGina

Seriously. Would you pay for a Poo with helmet eyes?

February 1, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterValarie

The "pile of poo" option is an accurate reflection of the feelings of St. Louis (ex)NFL fans.

February 1, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterStL Mom

My guess is there is a cupcake under all that fudge.

February 1, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterSarah

Big score could be used for a variety of situations.....and some of them might not be legal. But I draw the line at happy football, 'cause the losers aren't going to be very happy and just might turn it into a smash cake - which would be difficult because it is a cookie.

February 1, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterKyle

Clearly the football on the "big score!" cake is from the losing team.... explains why he's frowning. Or maybe he just realized there's a version of football played with poo in some very twisted bakery somewhere....

February 1, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterNaughty Nautilus

People always get irked with me because I keep calling it Feetball. Honestly, I have never known anyone who played with one foot.

February 1, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterJMixx

if my life consisted of being kicked, thrown, and fallen on, i would probably have the expression on the number 3 cake.

February 1, 2016 | Unregistered Commenterjane lewis

Big Score looks kinda sad for someone who just scored!

February 1, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterLuLu

being creative is always an option but being sloppy and not caring will end up on cakr wrecks

February 1, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterBillie

Yeah, the Colts did not even get close to the payoffs. I would send cccake #3 to the locker room.

February 1, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterAlison in Indiana

I mean, I know my Niners suck this year, but to put them in a big pile of poo frosting? That's just the icing on the cake. Or, no cake....

February 1, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterCharisse

Is that a caterpillar in step three? Yuk.

February 2, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterChicago

Did they really sell that pile of poop with the helmets stuck in it? That looked like it was just frosting lol. And if it was I wonder how much they wanted for that..pile of poop.

February 2, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterArlene Marie

Is No. 3 for a Deflategate party?

SuBee FTW!

Is this today, yet,
or am I caught in time's loop?
Groundhog Day's a bitch.

A haiku just for you, because I saw this post yesterday morning, and it's still up this morning, which gave me a chuckle.
