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? ;)

Write 'Em, Cowboys!

Hey guys, it's time again for our Annual Texas Cowboy Poetry post!

(My apologies in advance to Texas, cowboys, and poetry in general.)


Ahem hem hem.

swirling poo vortex
moistly encircles my horse

keep it off the boots.



There once was a rodeo clown
The best of the whole bunch, hands down.


A real Texas Star


He's sure to go far

If he'd just stop horsing aroun'.



Dangle the Dog's show had to close
The problem? Right under his nose.
Since it's hard to erase
the things on his face...

Now he just does puppet shows.



Kill, kill, kill

Kill kill.



And for our grand finale, we'd like you to know that John wrote the next one. That's right, JOHN DID IT. So it's not my or Sharyn's fault. We're just saying.

Take it away, John!


Once upon a morning dreary, while I sat there, drinking beery,
Thinkin' 'bout this girl I'd ogled at the game the night before.
How we went back to her trailer, thinkin' I was gonna... uh, regale her
Shame she fell into the baler, just below the hayloft door.
"Geez Louise!" I screamed in terror as her bits lay on the floor.
"Now she's boobs... and nothing more!"


Thanks to Jodee R., Erica D., Tug T., Samantha R., Kristen, Emily S., & Willow M. for helping John get that off his chest.


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

I am so happy you are giving us a chance to see these again. Many I missed the first time (I don't know how). Thank you, thank you, thank you!

1) Maybe that stuff encircling the horse is an alien beast and it hasn't yet digested the horse. It already got the cowboy. Sucked him right out of his boots.
2) Is this where Stephen King got his inspiration for "IT"?
3) It doesn't even have a face, and yet that star looks like it feels sad. Maybe that's why it's blue.
4) Let's see - one clown in a race car on a dirt road at a wooden bridge. What is this, the back woods Grand Prix? Then another clown who ought to be on America's Got Talent for his contortionist skills. And the final clown is drowning in the river and the other two aren't paying any attention.
5) This begs the question - did this dog have Superglue on his nose when he went to sniff the other dog's butt? How else do you explain that facial condition?
6) Oh, oh! Some kid crossed the Mafia boss.
7) John, John, John. Where is your mind, you bad boy? In keeping with the Western theme here, it is obvious that these are maracas. (They just lost their handles. And they're painted oddly).

I guess that last one is what's called; Poe-tree

These raise many questions, like, what is going on in the 4th one? It seems like it should be a story, stuff is happening, but...what? And the horse head...did the wreckorator think that horses ribs extend up their necks? That last one though is pretty self explanatory, thanks John!

John (thoj), I love you.
That was a really, really poor boob job.

Got no pony
Got no neck
Kill the cowboy
What the heck
C-I-L the cowboy.

With apologies to the Not Ready for Prime Time Players.

These horses are all a bunch of neigh-sayers.

Priceless, John! I'm weak and weary from laughing!

March 2, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterBecky

The last cake was funny but the poem was hilarious.

John made me spit at my computer screen.

There are no words! Kudos, however, to Mike's observations!

Dear John,

Most of these belong in the basement of the Alamo.

Except for John's poem. I didn't realize Poe was from Texas.

That Dallas Cowboys cake is sad, sad, sad...

March 2, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterNew England Flybaby

John's work takes the cake!

March 2, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterSammi

The horses head reminds me of The Godfather for reasons I won't say here lol. Not a cake I would want to eat that's for sure.

March 3, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterArlene Marie

I think Edgar Allan Poe just rolled over in his grave... but personally, I LOVED John's poem!!

Those are not breasts. They are well-dressed billiard balls.

John, love it! Please, please, PLEASE grace us with more of your Poe-e-tree!

6) That horse???? head look way more like a Jurassic Park Velociraptor. Now we just need to serve it with some jello.

"I'm confused. Was it baked by a man? 'Cos, well, men know boobs. Or by a woman? 'Cos, well, women know boobs too."
"They've got the boobs right - it's the rest of it that's wrong."
"Baked by a man."

5 - That's Jasper from the Chuck E. Cheese band. The likeness is actually pretty good.

March 6, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterClubAwesomeTV

The horse head is no horse. That is thestral from Harry Potters.
