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? ;)

Wax Poetic, Wax Off

Because bad poems and bad cakes go together like two things that go together and also rhyme.


Long like the trombone
are a giraffe's neck bones
7 bones
Bony bones
But Phil only had one bone.

Sucks to be you, Phil.



There once was a baker called Smit
Whose spelling was never a hit
From what I have heard
He botched ev'ry word
Except one: that guy knew his...




Elsa didn't know
Until blood started flowing
What she'd created






[whispering] Bakeryyyyy



Once in a season, very near Fall
From deep in the forest, trees shady and tall

Comes something peculiar, and so seldom seen
Like a leprechaun's gold, or a unicorn's spleen

Look quickly, my brethren, for with any luck
You'll be graced with the majesty of Weenie Buck

“Olaf has left the Bakery. Olaf has been saved.”?

Is it just me, or is there a Grinch-like green monster in the grass, with black eyes and a wide black grin? the facing-right edge, with foxtails for a topknot...?

Is that a leather belt? Does Weenie Buck like him some domination play?

April 19, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterZeenia

I'm not sure I even want to know the back story to that sign!

Some mated a Dachshund with a deer. Interesting.

Anna (to Olaf): And you're alive?

Olaf: I'm undead and I'm gonna haunt your dreams

Weenie Buck.... *giggles*

You guys made me snort at work.

This post was so huge, it was like Sputnik! (So I Married An Axe Murderer is one of my favorite films ever. ) Thanks for the delightful giggles!

If Elliot and the German dog could reproduce...that would be weenie buck. (I'm referencing Open Season movie)

April 19, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterJ'NaeNae

I love the reference to "I Married An Axe-Murderer!" That
is a great movie.

There once was a woman named Jen
Who set up a website and then
Showed wrecks phenomenal
That were truly abominable
And we laughed until who knows when.

Humpty Dumpty merges with Olaf merges with the Michelin Man. A creation only a wreckerator could make.

Who remembers that long-ago meme of the girl who put her arms in her sweatpants? I think she morphed into that giraffe.

Holly (blank) your 40 - Original title of "Annie Get Your Gun"?

Uh…I'm gonna keep scrolling past freaky Olaf to the bottom…

Someone mentioned the Grinch. I wonder if that's the little dog from the Grinch as he appears in the summertime. Also, um, that's not real grass, is it? What *is* that?

Get me off this profession

April 19, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterEmily

I used to work for a retail bakery and I remember TONS of kids that would actually climb into the cake case, so I would imagine that this bakery had to put a sign to prevent something similar from happening.

April 19, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterCC

Oh poor Olaf lost his head then apparently found it again. To the horror of many in the room lol.

April 20, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterArlene Marie

Am I the only one that sees Michael Keaton when looking at Olaf?

April 20, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterCharisse

How many eyes does Phil have?

April 20, 2018 | Unregistered Commenterpat gann

It is not the Grinch, it is a snake in the grass. Wonder if that is edible, too. How does one make a snake out of cake?

April 21, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterAlison in Indiana

@Charisse: That would be Jack Frost.
