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? ;)

9 Oddly Specific Apology Cakes

Far be it from me to ever condemn an apology made with cake.


Today's cakes do make me question being quite so specific about it.

Hey, I just realized this should have been the #1 apology cake for my Go-Go song!


And maybe these were the accompanying cupcakes?

(It says, "Sorry you fell in my pee.")


Now I know why most funeral receptions only serve pie.


Anyone else getting a passive-aggressive vibe here?


Very funny, Dad.


Oh, sure, THIS you can spell. Forget "congratulations," forget "birthday," "GONORRHEA" is the word you get right?! I just...I can't...I don't even...


And what are you smiling about?

This is actually adorable. Assuming it's a joke, of course.
If not, then it's adorable *and* hilarious.


This was a dispute between two chefs, kids. Chefs who are overly fond of their cookware. Honest.


Gentlemen, you know how sometimes you know you need to apologize, but you don't know what to apologize FOR?

This works.

I REALLY need to know the backstory to these cakes.

I LOVE these. Well, I LOVE the last one most. "Sorry I;m so stupid" really just kind of covers them all right? I need to remember that...

Feeding data into Character Assassination Module:
A>:Wreckorators: Live in rough neighborhoods.
<B Probably have no compassion (but wouldn't know how to spell it, anyway).
>C<May have been exposed to dangerous toxins.
(That's just asbestos a guess as I have....)

The #1 apology cake? ISWYDT.

Unfortunately, I don't see the reference in the link.

I gave my players a sorry you died cake. I understand the need for weird apology cakes. Still was their fault for trying to fight a dragon at level 2.

Maybe the apology about crabs referred to the shellfish & the recipient was allergic?

I read, Sorry about your dead dud and thought this was for a munitions manufacturer. You just can't blow up every time.

We're so sorry, Uncle Albert,
But we haven't done a bloody thing all day.

Hey, man...if you give me a cake like that every time, you can steal my pot any day!

Amazing. Cakes for STDs. Who would have thunk it? Only on Cakewrecks!😂😂😂😂😍

Lol the writing on the pot cake was gorgeous. But if anyone gave me a cake saying sorry about your dead dad they would wear the wreck lol.

I wish someone gave me a cake when my father died.

""GONORRHEA" is the word you get right?! "
Well, of course, it was the word the wreckerator felt he/she had to look up. "Birthday" any fool can('t) spell, as any visitor to the website knows.

The What What cake (it was in another post, too) reminded me of that Samwell video... If you don't know what I'm talking about, you can look it up but definitely NSFW.

When flowers aren't enough, you send an apology cake for the STD you gave your partner.

Forget the spelling - who's insane enough to think this is a good idea?

I'm setting that "bad knees" one as my desktop background.
