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? ;)

Beautiful Wrecks

YOU GUYS. We have another special VIDEO post today!

Or, if your work computer won't let you view video, keep scrolling for the written version.


Every cake is so wonderful,
And suddenly...

it's hard to breathe.


Now and then, I get insecure
From all the pain...



I'm so ashamed.

I am beautiful,


No matter what they say.

Words can't bring me down.


I am beautiful in every single way.
Yes, words can't bring me down, oh no.

So don't you bring me down today.


To all your friends, you're delirious.
Ice cream cones... to make their horns...

Tryin' hard to make some sense of it. Wait, are those bugles?
Is it a cow-duck with horns and a goatee?


Cause you are beautiful, no matter what they say.
Words can't bring you down.

You are beautiful in every single way.
Words can't bring you down. NoOooOoooOOOooo....
So don't you bring me down today.


No matter what we poo.

No matter what we bake.

And everywhere we go,
The suananaaaIIOOOAAAAa NNOOOO NOO NOOooooOO ooooooooo


We are beautiful, no matter what they pay.
Camo flower town.



We are beautiful in every single way.
Words can't bring us down. No no no no no mmmm MMMM mm....

So don't you bring me down today.

OooooOOOOUgggnhh... MMmmmnOOOooAAH!
Don't you bring me downtooaaaaayyyyyyyyaAAAAAHHHHH


So don't you bring me down..... ughhnnnn....



Zakes C., Maja, Liz D., Lesley M., DaAn D., Caroline M., Haley H., Geri B., Rachel S., Bob B., Sue S., & Amy B., awoooawoooeeeeoaaaahhhhow. No matter what they say.

Note from john: If you're wondering who's singing in the video, it's our very own Number 1 aka Jennifer Dorsman. And yes, she really is that good. Makes you sick, doesn't it?

OMG, where to begin? So many Wrecks! Nailed it w/the video guys, PERFECT.

The kreepy klown kakes with + for eyes (they're dead?) and the smiling dead deer.... hit me right between the eyes...

Too funny!

She is a wife, she blogs, she has great sense of humor...and she sings! Go, Jen go!

Cristina who???

Btw the cakes were perfect...wrecks. ;)

Oh my goodness, I am crying from laughing so hard! That song just fits so perfectly and the words scrolling over the bad cakes, just genius! That bike cake puzzles me on a different level - besides not having any seat (ouch indeed!) it doesn't seem to have any handlebars either so there is no way to steer! Sounds like someone is wishing for her to have an accident!

I feel so fortunate be here, now. On this day, at this this world....with all of this beauty....
((Siiiighhh!!!)) (*sniff*)
Urp! .Uhhh,.I feel something else, too.....Where's the bathroom?

This is... beautiful.

Wow, she has a fantastic.voice and no, it does not make me sick. It's a sight better than a lot of what qualifies as music today.

June 1, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterVernon

Oh my GAWD.
That was the most amazing thing I've ever seen in my life.


June 1, 2017 | Unregistered Commenterabudoggie

I simply must say that whoever sang that is amazing. Seriously. I loved the cake photos...but that voice simply took my breath away.


June 1, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterNutmeg

I'm trying to figure out what that last cake is supposed to be. That label says, "Chocolate Chip Message Co"? What is that? What is it trying to tell me? The only message I'm receiving is, "don't eat this cake."

June 1, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterRachel

Great job, Number One!

June 1, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterMary D.

Bravo! Bravo! (standing ovation)

June 1, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterALLEGRA

Actual LOL here! Every "words can't bring me down" with a WTF message was hilarious!!

June 1, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterErica

::sways to the music with lighter in one hand and iPhone with flashlight engaged in other::

June 1, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterDi

This one is truly a classic and stands the test of time. Laughed just as hard the second time around!

June 1, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterBlubonnet

That actually was beautiful. Smile through the tears!
(Seriously, that singing was amazing!)

June 1, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterLuLu

LOVE your voice and inflection, Jennifer. You coulda been a star! Oh, wait, you ARE!

June 1, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterJan in AZ

The close captioning, the song, the SINGING!!!!
But mostly the belly laughs!

June 1, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterCincy

Their Mums love them. Mostly.

June 1, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterBADKarma

An all-time favorite! I have looked this one up on a bad day, just to let it make me laugh. Your friend sang so beautifully and the lyrics and cakes ... masterful!
Thank S much!

June 1, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterJake & Me

Oh am I dying here lol. This was fantastic and man now I will never ever look at cow/duck/goat cakes the same way again though I still think those are possessed cows. Lol.

June 2, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterArlene Marie

HaHaHa Love the animated words flying across the screen, it made the whole thing ...! :D

June 2, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterMeg

Truly one of the classic posts, and Number One definitely has some serious pipes.

That bike cake still makes me cringe.

June 2, 2017 | Unregistered Commenterhyphen8

The script on Marie-Josephine's cake is lovely. At first I thought the cyclist's orange leg was a carrot; whoops! (Where is her other leg?)

June 2, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterChicago

There are unicycles, there are bicycles, and then there are CRINGE-cycles. If I had been drinking anything when that cake came into view, I am certain I would have choked, and I'd be buying a new keyboard and/or monitor.

Impressive pipes, indeed!

June 5, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterJMixx

Great job!
I laughed. I snorted!

June 5, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterElizabeth

That. Was. Awesome!

Jen, you sound amazing.

June 16, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterBeth

This is even funnier now that this very song is being sung by baked goods of dubious quality in the new Great British Bake-Off adverts.

You predicted the future. I am impressed.
