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? ;)

Some of my favorite new submissions this week:


We bid farewell to the Olympics this week, but thankfully, this baker will always carry the... uh...

...flaming poo wang.


Birthday girl Jenna Claire is allergic to tree nuts. Unfortunately, this means she had to share her cake with "Trez Hats".

(If you think that handwriting is bad, imagine what the order form looked like.)


And for little Ava's birthday, her folks splurged and got her the lovechild of Satan and Minnie Mouse:

[chipmunk voice] "RED RUM RED RUMMMM..."


This was on the side of a wedding cake, so....

...looks like someone DID believe it's not butter.


And finally, the best cookie cake mic drop ever:



Thanks to Ryan U., Kaleigh E., KT, LJ, & Aleisha C. for the fond farewell.

That's a new one, chocolate chip pizza.

Chocolate chip cookie pizza is a thing now? OO

August 26, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterNancy

Actually to me it appears as though Minnie might be having a sever allergic reaction (redness and swelling) I would call an allergist ASAP.

"Butterlies" just made my day!

August 26, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterJuliee

Poor Ava - Satanic Minnie will be following her in her dreams for a loooong time.

Andre - It's called a Cookie Cake, hon. And it's not new.

August 26, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterBADKarma

Obviously, as shown in wreck #1, the result of one consuming Chocolate Chip Pizza, is the "I need Pepto" poo of fire. Ouch.

The first one looks more like an elephant with a wig to me.

August 26, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterElisabeth

Chocolate chip cookie pizza to go, double cheese (yellow buttercream icing) with extra tomatoes (red icing), extra green peppers (green icing) extra onions (white icing) and extra pepperoni (brownish red icing). And triple anchovies (whatever color icing you got left over! It's all good because it's all ICING!!!)

First one "Goodness Gracious, Great Balls of Fire" that smell like poo...

Roseminnie's Baby?

August 26, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterLaura

Wow I guess I am tired because I thought that wedding cake said "You killed me with butterflies" and was trying to figure out what that even means.

August 26, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterJenny

"Butterlies" is totally something I need to incorporate into my vocabulary!

August 26, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterErica

Somebody please explain what "Bye Bicthis" is supposed to be? :( I'm confused!

August 26, 2016 | Unregistered Commenterzephyr

Mike Tyson ordered a cookie cake ?!

August 26, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterJessica

My first thought about the first one was "an elephant version of Heat Miser" (Very old reference to The Year Without a Santa Claus)

August 26, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterJus

Honestly I was too busy being grossed out by the roadkill toad stuck to the side of the wedding cake to notice the butterlies. What is that? Why????

August 26, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterKbam

Bicthis. What I call my bitches after I've had too muthc two drinky-poo!
Pour me another one. I'm finished with the other one. I'm drinkin' mah baby goodbye. (With thanks to Charlie Daniels)

I'm confused as to what "Trez Hats" was supposed to be....

August 26, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterJenneva

My boys think I'm nuts now. I laughed so hard at "butterlies" that I got a stomach cramp. No one deserves such betrayal, no one!

August 26, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterBrooke

You had me at "poo wang torch", but I do understand the "Butterlies"...
...they are made of margarine.

August 26, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterMedith

*giggles*. Butter lies *snorts*

August 26, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterLisa

What is it with bakers not being able to spell the simplest words. These aren't 'commonly misspelled words' you know! (That's actually a thing. look it up!)

August 26, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterNathan R.

When her grandmother found out that Minnie Mouse was listening to Miff Mole at one of the neighborhood dance halls, she told her that devil jazz music would surely bring about her downfall, but Minnie just couldn't put it behind her.

August 26, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterEoin

Bye bicthis is now my favorite phrase!

August 26, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterKyle

Oh how this post cracked me up lol. That poo wang torch has got me good. Honestly you cannot tell me they can't see what they are doing.. unless they all decorate in the dark in which case then this makes sense lol.

That first pic, of the "cookie cake," appears to me to be a warning against nudity in the forest. Using the woods instead of the outhouse might smell better, but some plants aren't "people-friendly." "Leaves of three, leave it be!"

August 27, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterJMixx

With how poorly these cake places follow the simplest instructions, there is no way I'd trust them to make a cake allergy-free! Tree nuts aren't usually used in cake? They'll find a way to incorporate them! "Ohhh, I thought it said *extra* tree nuts!"

August 27, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterCaren

And now whenever someone says the "b-word" I'm going to mentally replaces it with "bic-this" except pronounced with a soft (unvoiced) th like in "thistle" instead of the usual hard th as in "this"

August 27, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterSam

These comments are as hilarious as the post itself! Well done, Cake Wreckers.

August 28, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterLori

That first one is the rat king from the nutcracker, obvi.

August 28, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterCatherine
