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? ;)

There, I Fixed It

"Aw, rats. I forgot to capitalize the H on this birthday cake."



"There! Perfect."



"Madison did such a great job, earning her brown belt in Karate! Oh, but wait...she's a GIRL, isn't she? Oops. Huh. This graphic has two boys on it."

"Well, no problem. I've got it covered."

"Yep, that was a hairy problem, but I sure got it covered. Heh. Aheh."



Wrong name? Nooo problem.

[whispering] No one will EVER know.

That karate cake is genius. I think frosting ponytails could be useful in so many situations.

Third cake:
It's a pretty shade of pink!
And the script is done well....!
I don't see why the birthday girl shouldn't have her favorite Double Bubble gum on it.....
Who's day IS it, huh?

That first cake has to be from one lazy baker. Not only did he not do the "H" right, but it's obvious this is a cake to a bride where her wedding falls on her birthday. Hence, he coined a new term - "briday". I guess he figured he'd just save both time and space. (Either that, or he just can't spell. That couldn't possibly be the problem, right?)

On the last cake, at least "birthday" is spelled properly.

Surprised (and relieved, tbh) that the karate cake "fix" didn't include trying to add boobs.

Or, the first cake was for someone whose birthday happened to fall on a Friday, so they turned the F into a B.

The ponytails are brilliant. I honestly didn't see them til reading the caption.

Who doesn't want a lavender casket made from icing on their birthday cake? Who?

That karate cake has me laughing so hard. It actually doesn't look horrible just hysterically funny.

Why yes, I did want a smear of pink spackle on the cake...
