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? ;)

Dear Santa... It's Complicated

[WARNING: Bad word ahead! Clear out the kids!]



Today is the start of Dear Santa week, so time to get those letters out to St. Nick, minions!


This is when you tell Santa how you didn't murder anyone this year even though you really really wanted to, so you totally deserve that Benedict Cumberbatch body pillow and lifetime subscription to Wicked Whoopies. You know, just as a "for instance."

[side eye]

Of course, personally assessing your own "good" or "bad" behavior beyond non-murder can be a little dicey. I mean, who HASN'T slipped up from time to time


or accidentally said what they were thinking out loud


or sent an in-law a giant horse's.... butt?


Ahh, but not to worry! One baker has done all the work for us this year, perfectly summing up our collective behavior during 2018 in a single, surprisingly eloquent cookie cake:


But there were extenuating circumstances, Santa, honest.


Thanks to Mark M., Alyssa P., Jennifer D., & Jodi N. for the capital letter.


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

I love the Dreidel in the last cookie cake.

In that third one, I guess the Godfather ran out of horse's heads.

Is that a map of Iowa on the last cake? If so, WHY?

That last cake--I can hear it screaming, "Moisturize me!"

Maybe SLUT is an acronym for a group, such as Serious Ladies Under Tyranny, a radical feminist organization fighting oppression.
I like the red highlights on Derek's cake. So many questions about the backstory. Is that his nickname? Is that his job title at the Sanitary Cleaner, Inc. factory? (motto: somebody has to make 'em).
The horse's rear is quite well done. The lower legs seem a little stocky, butt the upper parts are testicley well done.
The Santa letter is sad in so many ways. The holly is nicely done.

Kat and Monique, I literally just finished watching that episode 5 minutes ago with my husband. First time Doctor Who Watchers here! I saw that last cake and wondered if anyone else would see the resemblance! Creepy!

The horse's arse cake may have looked a trifle odd, but at least the punctuation was correct...

November 7, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterKim A

What's that B-word supposed to be on the horse one? Bite? Buy? Burgle? Bedazzle?

Dear God, why did the baker add the horse's junk to that cake? I cannot in-see that and I am now scarred for life!

November 8, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterAngie

Junk? You don't have animals, do you?

Well the wreckerators are certainly about to be on the naughty list and I don't even wanna know what Santa would give them if he saw these lol.
