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? ;)

It's So Hard To Say... That Word There

Ooh, so close.


Less close.


The irony.
It burns.


[head on desk] Noooo....


[rolling head on keyboard] Nooogw89w;kahoeoiujoowirmooooo





You give me a properly spelled goodbye cake, bakers, or so help me, I WILL start ranting about CCCs again. [meaningful glare]




A fond John Boyega to Kelly J., Lawrence H., Paula G., Cheryl S., Michelle S., Laura I., & Nan Q., who, strangely enough, already left.

I thought the second cake said "Toad Look". We should start that as a thing: "Don't give me that toad look!"...

I love me some Good Bey blade duels :p

Hey, look! The wreckporter is reflected in the plastic cover on the sixth photo down! That's about enough excitement for me....(unless I can borrow your Meaningful Glare; I've practiced my own, but just end up laughing at how dopey I look.) =^-.-^=

Hee, the "von boyage" cake reminded me of my late father, who was always joking around with Spoonerisms like that. We had a lot of boot reer and chitato pips on picnics, and we saw runny babbits and snattlerakes on our ranch.

That being said, it also made me think of Diego Boneta's band in the movie Rock of Ages, Von Colt.

ROTFLMAO! It is to DIE for.... or rather do TIE for! :-)

And THIS is why we need to emphasize education again.....

Do you suppose Anna Marie is travelling to a Bon Jon Bovi concert?

April 14, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterWorrierPrincess

"Von Boyage" sounds like a great pseudonym for an actor in the .... Erm... Adult film business. Or a trashy romance writer, maybe.

As the kids say on the tumbler, No lies detected!

I saw Toad Look too. I foresee this becoming part of my routine vocabulary, like gooble till you wooble did.

I can think of legitimate explanations for each of these:
1) Tess has been paying it forward in a tremendously wholesome way. Think: Good, by Tess.
2) Erica got a makeover and a new outfit, and her co-workers are showing their appreciation
3) Mary aced her practicum in her home economics class
4) Cheryl’s urologist is just thrilled with the progress she’s making in controlling her flow. Those kegel exercises do work.
5) Ana has been recognized for her work as a Governor in the Ottoman Empire. Excellent Excellency!
6) Anna Marie is setting off on her transgender journey
7) And #7 just says it all. A perfect statement in plainspeak.

To give credit where credit may or not be due, Tess got round, plastic balloons, not squiggly spermies as displayed on Tuesday, was it? Yay for balloons to say buy-byie!

You just need to luck at things more closely....

Thanks for this post, Jen. You don't know how much I needed this today!

Hmmm...just noticed that the Good Look/Toad Look cake looks like it had an extra "d" in "good." It appears to have the staff on the "d" eliminated, to make it into one of the "o's." Then it would have read "Godd Look Erica," which is a whole nuther wreck altogether.

April 14, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterJodi

I'm thinking the Von Boyage was deliberate, but if it wasn't, as long as it's Good By Tess, it's good by me.

April 14, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterStephanieJ

Jodi, you reminded me of my father who tried to convince my brother and myself that our new station wagon was cool. We had the only wation stagon in the neighborhood!

April 14, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterDegera

Maybe Von Boyage (along with his excited wife Anna Marie) is Chef Boyardee's cousin?

April 14, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterKyle

Ok,t the "Von Boyage" is just awesome!!! I'm filing that one away for the next time someone I know goes on a trip.

April 14, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterLaura

Trappy hails, until me wheat again!

April 14, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterEoin

Von Boyage is the new nemesis in the next Incredibles saga. Instead of a French guy blowing things up, it's a German guy throwing F-bombs.

April 14, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterJust Andrea

Toad Loovn, Erica! I think the Swedish Chef made your cake, bork bork bork!

April 14, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterChicago

Yep. Snorted at the Von Boyage! BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA

April 14, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterKim

Seriously, don't these people use spell chuck?

Leave Already is the best. My folks didn't give me a cake but they did say those words when I was 22 and still living in my childhood room...

April 14, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterKaren

What, exactly, are those critters on Cheryl's cake?

April 14, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterDeb

I'm thinking the wreckerator actually did one good thing for Ana: they put the ! far enough away that it didn't combine with her name to spell something completely different 😉

April 14, 2016 | Unregistered CommenteriMark

I think Ana's cake was sent by Megamind. Maybe he delivered it on his spee-ider bot?

April 15, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterJake & Me

Unless these wreckerators are blindfolded at the time I cannot understand what the heck is so hard about spelling bye and good and luck lol. Oh man maybe they sleep decorate lol.

April 15, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterArlene Marie

If only the Poo Frogs on the third cake had been used on the "Toad Luck" wreck...

April 15, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterAlice Shortcake

Colin - well done on the Ottoman Empire reference. I laughed out loud at that. Who knew the empire still lived?

April 15, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterNancy

Okay, I so want to read a book with a character named Goadbey Von Boyage. Or maybe that will be my steampunk name.

April 15, 2016 | Unregistered Commenterstaying anon

Best wihses.
