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 Happy Dad's Dad

Right, bakers, this one's not too bad. All we need is "Happy Father's Day."

Aaaaand... GO.

No no, Happy FATHER'S day.




A little farther...


What is even happening right now.


Tell you what, just write, "#1 Dad."
Easy-peasy, pudding and...



::head in hands::


ARG, nooooo!
It's not "Day," it's "DAD!!"


I'm just not talking to you anymore.


That's right, DO WHATEVER YOU WANT, bakers.



Well, I guess I did ask for it.


Thanks to Katie M., Melissa D., Chelsea B., Michelle G., Lauren P., Krista D., Jenny W., Tyler C., Pam M., & Isabel M. for taking Dad jokes even farther.

Let's see; we have dyslexia, colour-blindness, and generally English as a third or fourth language represented here, all adding up to brain-dead as a job description.

Fappy Faters' #3 Dayd to you 2!

Do you know I had to try three times before auto-correct would let me type that?

And here's a news story for you:

Never, never hire a dyslexic wreckorator - unless it's to draw pictures. You can't mess up a picture, right? Right?

June 17, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterLady Anne

In the morass of cakes
That look so bad,
Midst the Crabgrass of life
You are my favorite Dad.

(I can hear this against a Doo Wap background of Dad, Dad, Dad, Ohhh,whoa, Day, Day, Day.)

I do wonder whether the backwards lettering wasn't actually what was asked for...

June 17, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterBruce

*insert crude joke about fappy and father being at opposite ends of the reproductive spectrum*

June 17, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterFluffy Cow

Thank you, DB. I always hoped that at least some of these cakes end up being drop-kicked. I certainly would never pay a cent for some of them.

Bit of an overreaction over a cake only being for a 7 year old, though. Kids wouldn't care.

June 17, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterAisha

I have no words... these are dreadful!

It did remind me of the time I accidentally gave my dad a Father's Day card for his birthday. So of course, I gave him a birthday card on Father's Day.

June 17, 2016 | Unregistered Commenterakathleen

"Fappy Father's Day" Bwahahahahaha! *picks up mind out of gutter*

June 17, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterGingerSnap

I'm about to get kicked out of the library from laughing too hard. I don't know why this one tickled me so much--I mean, every post is great--just the progression of stupidity, I guess.

June 17, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterElissa

I wonder what the inspiration was for putting asparagus all over a chocolate chip cookie. Is it a new flavor sensation??

June 17, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterKimS

I'm disappointed. I was hoping for a 'Happy Fathead's Day'

June 17, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterGingerlily

1) The "I Evol Daddy" cookake is some "clever" baker's attempt at imitating the handwriting of a small child, so it's "Fail" on more levels than you might realize.

2) The OD Green antlers have kind of a "Herne, God of the Forest" vibe, so I can sorta see that... O.o

3) "Fappy Father Day"... (blinkblink)... Um... Yeah... I don't know that announcing to the world what Dad does alone in his office in front of the computer late at night is really appropriate, dear...

June 17, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterBADKarma

Well, these are awful!.
Maybe we need simple index cards with the most common words spelled in a bold, uncomplicated font. The person taking the order could then attach the card to the order, thereby eliminating the need for language skills or even memory.
Still leaves us with the potential disaster of personalization but, unless you're looking for "Ulula Baginva"*, it can only be funnier to see common names misspelled.
* Names like this would be replaced by "Bob". Can't really screw that one up...well, yeah...
(Please know that I KNOW this wouldn't help; fixing things is my weakness)

Happy Father's Dad = Happy Grandpa!

My favorite is the last one. Fappy Father Dad to all of the CakeWrecks peeps!

I'm off to check out the link @DB supplied -- sounds hilarious!

June 17, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterJodi

Bwah ha ha ha ha! @DB's link WAS hilarious! I'm a prosecutor, and I wouldn't prosecute that woman! (Well, I'd probably have to for something minor, but she'd have my sympathy all the way.) I think cakey wreckiness is definitely a legal defense to disturbing the peace or cake property destruction. My favorite part is where she denies drop-kicking it and claims it slipped out of her hand! So, how does she explain the stomping? Then the knocked-over "wet floor" sign is the cherry on top!

So I drop-kicked a cake--
Is that so bad?
Batman v. Superman
Made me so sad.

I tried to fix it myself
So the madness stops --
but the gol-danged clerks
Just called the cops.

So I grabbed my wreck
And down it dipped.
I did not kick it!
I swear -- it slipped!

So I stomped and yelled
And ground that wreck
Into the floor.
I gave it heck!

Then as I left
That bakery scene
I gestured to a warning sign.
I'm not so mean!

So now I'm cuffed,
My shoes crusted in cake.
In the back cage of a cruiser
'Cuz wreckers can't bake.

Fappy Father's Day...I'm dying. Oh my.

June 17, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterHeather A

Now, don't we all miss "Happy Falker Satherhood?"

June 17, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterSuBee

SuBee - Yes, that DOES seem coherent and sensible by comparison, now...

June 17, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterBADKarma

I wonder if the partly backwards letterer also got a request for "REDRUM."

June 17, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterClassic Steve

Glad DB shared the link to the drop-kick cake story. I'm sure some of the customers who've had cakes posted on this site would like to drop-kick them at the wreckerators. Maybe that could be an annual festival. Like pumpkin chunkin. (Yes, that is a real thing here in the rural South.)

Anyway, can anyone explain the green stuff on the chocolate chip cookie? Took me a long time to even find the "(heart) U DAD!" among the flora.

June 17, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterTriciaL

Checked out DB's link. I'd have given just about anything to see a video.

June 17, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterALLEGRA

OMG I'm dying laughing. Thank you so much for such a great laugh today. I can't even. ???Fappy Father's Day???? Bahahahaha

June 17, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterLyn C

Never thought I would see a cookie decorated with snot,gross

June 17, 2016 | Unregistered Commenterhorton

I assume the same person that wrote "Happy Mothday" a month ago is the one who iced "Happy Fathday". Oh, the sadness when your new words/phrases just don't take off...

June 17, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterSaraCVT

Can anyone explain why the Fappy Father Day cake was so carefully divided before being wreckorated?

June 17, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterKyle

I like the pro-IVF stance taken by the last cake.

June 17, 2016 | Unregistered Commenterjbrecken

Ohmigoodness, my coworkers are going to start wondering about my sanity.

Some days, it's too hard to stifle the laughter.

Antlers spaghetti moth sink trap to all the dads!

June 17, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterAl the K

The fourth cake must be pretty nervous about being held captive in that box...look at it! It's SWEATING! Moisture on the INSIDE of the lid?! I like cake as much as the next person, but I draw the line at traumatizing them. I say throw that one back; let it have a little fun....maybe meet a nice gril....(*wink*). Tomorrow's another day....=^-.-^= ...(so they say!)

June 17, 2016 | Unregistered Commentersendingtheclowns

No one else saw "Buck U Dad" on the antler cake? No? Just me?

June 17, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterCookieD'oh

Is it just me or does anyone else find it extra funny that the last one looks like it's written in blood?

June 17, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterIsolder74

You want a cake to serve 12? Just cut on these lines and everyone will be happy.

June 18, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterNobodee Home

"Buck?" Nah, Someone was being clever, and that's "Hart you dad."

June 18, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterR3test

At least none had happy farters day.. now I almost expect to see a cake like that one day lol. Nothing would surprise me anymore not after seeing these lol.

June 18, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterArlene Marie

You can see in the back of the red / blue #1 Day cake that the beer is in the same cooler in the bakery.
That might explain a lot...

June 18, 2016 | Unregistered Commenterclueless noob

I agree with Bruce. Maybe a child prints it that way and wanted to show her Daddy.

June 18, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterLeslie

What, no "Happy Farter's Day"?

June 18, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterRoxy Random

Apparently, the person who ordered the second to last cake is the child of Kthulu.

June 19, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterValentine

Thank you Jen. Whenever I'm feeling a little down on the world, I just tap my Cake Wrecks app, and before I know it I am 😂 P.S. I think smart funny girls are sexy as heck (comment moderated as requested)

June 19, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterPoppo Paquin

Well, there a was, to myself, 'Well, where's the HAPPY FARTER'S DAY cake, snigger snigger...'

And then I saw the last one.

Goodness gracious me, as my favourite protocol droid would say.
