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? ;)

A Series of Unfortunate Monograms

Who thought this was a good idea?


Or this?

(Never in my life have I so fervently hoped that a cake was chocolate.)


Or, Aunt Flo help us, this?

"So, when's the party?"

"At the end of the month."


Amy M., Jenna B., & Kim W., URQTs. At least, I like to think that you are. Not in a creepy way, of course, or like I know firsthand because I secretly stalk you or anything...that would just be weird. I mean, look, I'm just trying to give you a friendly compliment, in a completely platonic, non-stalker-esque kind of way, Ok? Ok. As you were.

The cake with the three Ks may or may not be chocolate, but they've got the white "draped" icing down.
I think the feet should be moving along. I don't like the way they're circling....

If I had been a boy, my initials would have been kkk. Fortunately my parents chose a different name when my brother came along.

The blood-red ribbon on the last cake is a nice touch...

KKK is unfortunate, but that binky is life threatening.

Obviously the maker of #2 is a Ramones fan with a smartaleck sense of humor.

I laughed so hard about your title! The sad thing is, cakes 2 and 3 are really lovely...
You should be carefull who you marry. What's your name?
Ehm, nope, sorry, that could never work out. Our monograms don't match.

And to top it all off, the Aunt Flo cake has red ribbons around the unwitting 'touche to the baker!

Cake #2: The KKK Took My Baby Away?

Cake 3 came that close to being an inspiration cake.

Ahh I love these lol. I got lucky with my monogram but I nearly died laughing at the pms one and the huge pacifier made me wonder if the kid was the progeny of the Jolly Green Giant. Lol.

Oh, Jen, I think I love a completely platonic, non-stalker-esque kind of way, Ok? :p

The PMS cake is such a silly mistake. If they'd switched the places of the P and S it would have been fine. Or just the M would have been lovely. It's a beautiful cake with a sad end. Although, had they not been idiotic, the cake would not be immortalized for all eternity on the interwebs on Cake Wrecks! So that's a win!

My best friend in high school had the initials P.E.E.. For her 16th birthday, her mother gave her a gorgeously tooled leather purse with those initials emblazoned on the flap.

As with most true stories, this one has no punch line.

Please tell me the PMS cake was red velvet.

I guess Trump would love the first cake. He's full of it.
