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? ;)

Hi, I'm here to pick up a cake? It's the "Happy Birthday Brittany" one.

Ah, no, see, that second "Birthday" should be "Brittany."


 No no, this has Brittany twice. I need "Happy Birthday" on it.

Ok, now you've just combined them into one word. There should be three.


 You don't mind if I bang my head on this counter here, do you?


 Look, forget the name. Could you just give me a cake that says "Happy Birthday," with sprinkles on it? Yes? Great. Thanks.





Thanks to Anony M., Bethany C., Angela A., Margo R., Brian R., & Kasha D.  for the dental training. (Because it's like pulling teeth? Eh?)


Thank you for using our Amazon links to shop! USA, UK, Canada.

Jen & john (thoj),

Anything wrong, guys? I actually checked to make sure it was Tuesday, not Wednesday (your usual Wrecky Replay day). I hope the change in schedule just means you're tired and not some emergency. Be well, guys.

Having a tooth pulled recently, I can assure you that I was at least comfortably numb for that process. These cakes? Not so much. Thanks for another great post, even if it is a replay.

Oh my goodness, these got me laughing and kept me going! The second cake is actually quite beautiful if you can overlook the redundancy but the third...what on EARTH was going on? Those pathetic looking carrots/chili peppers are bad enough but then it looks like they added (as an afterthought?) the wording on top of them! Wow, I would have loved to have been a fly on the wall while the baker was doing THAT cake!

"Happy Brith Day" is what you get when you order a cake for a circumcision party but you have a lisp.

I come here for the headaches....
I come, therefore, I get headaches.

=^e.e^= toss me the existential sprinkles, when you can't, okay?

For the happy birthday birthday I expect happy Brittany Brittany to go to a party party. Maybe the Beatles were inspired by a cake wreck? :-D

What is the smattering of brownish gunk in the middle of the third cake? Actually, I don't want to know.

Those carrots in cake 3 are really fresh. They have dirt still on them.

My name is Brittany and I've written "Happy Brittany" on cards and cakes more times than I care to count...

April 19, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterBrittany

Howling ... just howling.

@jen, the progression is excellent!
