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? ;)

Jesus loves adopted children,
And the dinosaurs who ruled the world.
Red and aqua, yellow bright,
That remorse cake’s a delight.
Not so much cakes from the neighbor who hath hurled.

I love Remorse cake.

Wreck #1 needs a P.S. "P.S. sorry for drooling on the middle of this cake and trying to fix it without you noticing" Clearly we can see the attempt to 'fix' the mess in the middle of the apology. Dear, Dear wreckers, will you ever learn? I certainly hope not. hehe

SuBee, your songs always scan perfectly, but I think this may be your best, most perfectly metered effort yet. "Not so much cakes from the neighbor who hath hurled" makes my heart utterly happy. The use of "hath" is outstanding. I could write a whole paper on this. Long reign Poet Laureate SuBee!

I lost the game.

Ok love the dinosaur cake and LOL at the apology cake with hurling neighbors!

April 26, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterNathan R.

Then somebody vomited on the "sorry I vomited" cake and tried and failed to fix it. Irony?

Anyone else noticing the question mark on the dinosaur cake. Not very reassuring. I don't think I'd respond well, for example, to a valentine from my husband that says, "I love you!?"

I'm still trying to get my head around the dinosaur with glandular problems - mumps maybe. And how to tie in a dinosaur to "Jesus loves adopted children"..makes NO sense whatsoever. But .. hey... it's CAKE and that is a win, win, win!

The "How Dare You" with the poo-colored roses... I don't really get that either... I'm sure there's a story there somewhere! Again... it's C-A-K-E! Please break out the ice cold milk and pass the poo-rose!

With poop brown roses

What's up with the dinosaur cake. I love a good Wreck, but the question mark is bothering me. As Auntie to my sister's lovely adopted daughters and Grandma to my son's adopted children, I find this offensive.

The dinosaur adoption cake saddens me.

April 26, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterTanya

At least the Neighbors-Who-Hath-Hurled are TRYING. In, or even on, the trash can is better than on the cat, which if I remember correctly, has also appeared here. And no doubt greatly offending the cat.

Dang it "Mom" I haven't lost the game in years!

Cake #5: Yet another cupcake creation. The thing that bothers me most about it, though, is that it appears to have been sold in a store (based on the label in the upper right hand corner). Sold "as is", I guess.

I want the remorse cake.

April 26, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterKai Lowell

Oh my the adopted thing just pushed a major button for me. Argh. Trigger alert.

When I was in high school ( lo those many years ago), my class went on a retreat. The priest who was conducting the retreat met with each of us individually, and I mentioned in passing that I was adopted. He said the stupidest thing. "You don't act like an adopted child". I looked at him and said, "what's an adopted child supposed to act like?" smdh

In love with the 'How Dare You' cake!

And to all those adopted people out there, just remember: you were, are, and always will be wanted. You were planned for, hoped for, adored before you even got there, and you made life immeasurably wonderful for your new parents.

@SaraCVT, can you provide further info to find that story you refer to? My search-fu is weak today. :(

April 27, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterSeanette

As a cousin of adopted children, and hoping to adopt in the future the dinosaur cake is wrong, wrong, wrong. Where is Barney when you need it? (Yes, I'm willing to listen to the "I love you" song, instead of looking that cake.)

As an adoptive mom, I see so much wrong with that dinosaur cake. Jesus loves adopted children too. Of course He does! Jesus was himself an adopted child. Adopted by Joseph.

April 27, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterRikki

Thanks mom now we all lost the game lol. And have remorse just looking at all the yellow on that cake.. eeeek.

April 28, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterArlene Marie

Love the grovel cake for the neighbors. Points for trying.

My fave is the "Remorse" cake.

I NEED to know the back story of the adoption cake. Was it a Sunday school class topic gone horribly wrong? Crazy relative who ruined Christmas for some 6 year old, and a big swing and a miss on fixing it? Snark for an adopted adult? A joke cake for an adopted adult?

My friend (who is adopted and an atheist) thought the cake was funny hell.

"Why would Jesus care who my parents are on my birth certificate?"

The adoption cake upset me a lot. "too"? Makes it sound like they are an afterthought. He loves little children, and hey He loves you adopted ones, too. For that reason, and perhaps for the symmetry of the edge, I really ended up appreciating the yellow CCC (patooie!) with the perfect expression that followed it. I never thought THAT would happen.

Oh, and I think the "How Dare You!" decorator has some decent skills. And the poo roses are at least recognizable as roses, anyway.

To whoever got the "You Lost The Game" cake,
Your Mom is savage.

I kind of want to meet her, and I kind of also want to tell "Your Mom" jokes about savage, epic winning moms like her.

Sincerely, the mom who tells "Your Mom" jokes to her teens.
(True story, one of my kids said to the other "You're such a NERD!" and I yelled back from the other room "Your MOM's a nerd!" Because I am. They were so shocked they forgot to keep arguing. I win).
