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? ;)

Something Wrecky This Way Comes

(Warning: Naughty puns ahead. Hide your kids.)


Renee C. ordered this sandcastle cake for her beach-themed wedding:


So you know what's coming, right?

Heh. Aheh.



The bride really got the shaft here, and it doesn't take a firm grip on reality to be testy over such a cock-up. Should she just suck it up and beat it? Is she nuts to take this blow so hard? Will nothing stop the erection of headstrong turrets?

No, that's a fallacy!*

Besides, I'm sure bakers will get the point in the end.
Aaand I'm done.


Thanks to Renee C. for the heads up!

Okay, okay. Now I'm done.


*'Cuz it's a phallus - see?

If I ever get married and have a cake, I want it to be made entirely out of cake dongs.

And I'm sure this cake violates some kind of penal code.

Two thoughts:
1) I'm glad the decision was not made to drizzle icing around in random spots.
2) I won't be showing this to my partner...he will want a little cape for his "turret", too. I know I'd never be able to convince him they're windows.

Ahhh I can always count on this site for much needed immature humor XD

Even the two lower turrets on the proper one are shocked!

I don't think I fully appreciate the range of emotions I go through on a daily basis looking at these posts. They usually involve a muttered "oh my god" gasp. Keep 'em coming.

April 17, 2018 | Unregistered Commenterdutchgirl

Oh, I feel so sorry for Renee...That cake is definitely "cake wreck" material!

The puns made me laugh out loud! Thanks for the laugh. :-D

Men can still be kings
of fairytale sandcastles
when they're made of cake.

. That is not a Kingdom. That is a Kingdong. Women have Castles, men have Kingdongs. (well, for those who like to brag anyway, hehehe).

This cake is going to be hard to beat.

April 17, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterLorin

Maybe they wanted a Little Mermaid theme

The groom feeds the bride, the groom feeds the bride, hi ho Dadario the groom feeds the bride.

There are a lot of fertility symbols associated with weddings, but this really takes the cake.

April 17, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterJules

I hate to think what the seashells would have looked like if they had actually tried to make them out of fondant or frosting, instead of "cheating" with real shells. 😏

April 17, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterKyphanie

......and of all the colours that the baker could choose- suntan flesh, really??????

April 17, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterJus

Puts a whole new spin on “Have fun storming the castle!”


April 17, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterSeabird

Every night my husbands asks me....what in the hell are you laughing at?? Actually I'm snorting but details, details.

April 17, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterCacharles3

April wins the internet with "turret capes." Now all I can picture are little superhero capes that you can buy on Dark Etsy somewhere...

April 17, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterAlison

I can't stop laughing. I can only imagine what the bride thought looking at this... lol

April 18, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterArlene Marie

@Susan: Wouldn't that be "Hi-Ho, *Lothario*, the groom feeds the bride!"

Jen, you might want to be careful with all those puns. It sounds like you're developing "Turret's Syndrome."

April 18, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterJMixx

@JMixx: That was hilarious! Turret's syndrome. Chortle, laugh, guffaw!

April 18, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterMike

Let's not overlook the cockles strewn about.

April 19, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterOld Marshmallow

While reading that hilarious narrative, I was thinking, "Oh no... there won't be any puns left for Mike!" But I should have known he "wood" be able to "come" up with one more.

April 20, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterCali Kath

She left them (wait for it).....just the tip.
