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? ;)

The Big-Ass, Laugh-Til-You-Get-The-Hiccups Post

So the other day I saw this on the interwebs:

And I laughed and I laughed 'til I gave myself the hiccups, and then I wondered how often this actually happens. (The sign thing, not the hiccups. I already know hiccups happen whenever the party has a sudden lull and you're in a big, echo-ey space.)


So even though you may have seen some of these before, I had to put them all up again. Because, FUN TRUE FACT, the more of these you see, the funnier it gets.






Now if you'll excuse me, I have to go drink a big glass of water.
Or maybe look at some C-section cakes for a good scare.


Thanks to Abigail E., Collen M., Gretchen O., Anony M., Justine T., & all of our inner 10-year-olds for making abbreviations FUN again.

How is it possible to have the same typo’ed word on so many different signs? I just... what?

It's short for "assorted." Sheesh...

So…… is Ass-Sorting a new party game?

April 30, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterShirley

We used to have a baker who would write ASS in black sharpie on the parchment sheets the cookies were baked on to let us know those were for the assorted cookie packages. She was a bit too thrifty when it came to parchment paper, so if were weren't quick enough to throw the old ones out, she would reuse them to put french bread on. Including the ASS papers. Fun fact: Sharpie on parchment will transfer to whatever is baked on it. So I'd be bagging french bread and randomly come across one with ASS on the bottom of it. We always threw the Ass Bread out, but we had a laugh at the thought of one slipping by us and going home with a customer.

I know inflation is rampant, but where on earth does a box of doughnuts (even ass doughnuts) cost $20?!

I'm not going to ask what Ass Pudding or Ass Fudge or Ass sauces look like. (I can imagine, but I'm not going there). But I think my wife can probably fill me in since she works in the lab at our metropolitan sewer district.

What a bunch of asses.

April 30, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterMindy1

I'm actually more worried about the "Petri" brand herring. That's not the kind of, um, "culture" I'm interested in.

April 30, 2018 | Unregistered Commenter3Davideo

Loved your ass cakes yesterday!

April 30, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterTom

I believe people should live their life the way they see fit; however, I think I will pass on the ass pudding.

I laughed so hard I farted. At work.

April 30, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterAngie

It's probably best to *not* read this while proctoring a final exam. You know, according to a friend of mine.

April 30, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterJenn

Toilet Slime Neon Ass is my new rock band.

@Angie: ...Angie .....! I was trying to stop laughing to write that I COULDN'T stop laughing at your
comment.....omg. !!!!!😂

My sister dated the assistant manager of a restaurant once. Only according to his name badge he was the Ass Manager... It was hilarious!

April 30, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterA

Is Welsh Lady Ass Fudge really that different from the average Lady Ass Fudge? Asking for a friend...

April 30, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterJulie

That must one big ass box of doughnuts for $20.

April 30, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterJenny

Welsh Lady Ass Fudge. This makes me laugh so hard tears run down my legs!

April 30, 2018 | Unregistered Commenterpat gann

Since my last name is Asselin when I pick up prescriptions my meds say ASS on them. Makes it easy for the tech to find!

April 30, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterAngieA

Ok, true story. I work in a small town grocery store. One of the guys in our meat market is a college kid. I come in to work about a week ago and he's putting out the new week's sale tags. He has just hung one in front of a stack of sliced meat and cheese party trays that says "Ass. Meat - Party." I stopped and looked at the sign. And looked him deadpan in the face. *Blink.* Looked back at the sign and back at him. *Blink blink.* at which point he he broke out if giggles and snickers and darted back into the cutting room. And I... giggled and snickered and went on my way.

For the edification of some here, the accepted abbreviation for "assorted" is "ass't.". For obvious reasons.

April 30, 2018 | Unregistered Commentermarilyn

Is “assorted” really such a long word that it needs to be abbreviated? I think people are just having fun.

April 30, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterAnother jenn

Hoo boy. I moved to French Canada a few years ago, and French signs are hilarious. Plate in French is "assiette", which they abbreviate all the time. "Ass shawarma", etc.

My favourite was a brand of tomatoes, called Savoura. They were selling tiny cocktail tomatoes. Which they abbreviated. To "Savoura cock".

Oh the laughter that isn't stopping right now. I just hope I don't get the hiccups lol.

May 1, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterArlene Marie

Yeah, the first one is a typo but I suspect at least some of the others (the Welsh Fudge for sure) aren't from your neck of the woods. As someone from the other side of the world I can tell you that ass doesn't have the same meaning here. It's a very common abbreviation for assorted and associates etc. You'll find it in every Supermarket and even on business signs and stationery.

For anyone interested we use the word Arse instead😏

May 1, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterBrends

It's amazing how many people do not know how to abbreviate their ass. It's even worse when they spell count without the o. I've seen it. 30 years in Advertising... seen it all. LOL We even had a store set up their outisde signing for the Super Bowel. sigh....

May 1, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterLori

I've seen an organizational chart that listed "Admin Ass" (Assistant) and "Admin Anal" (Analyst). It was all the funnier because it included names. :P

May 1, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterIma

The people wondering how many ass donuts you get for 20 dollars, luckily those prices are not in dollars but in South African Rands. Roughly R12 for one dollar. So cheap ass donuts!

May 1, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterSweetyThing

I'm assuming the ass. cream cakes are chocolate filled...

May 1, 2018 | Unregistered Commenterdutchgirl

When I was in elementary school, my mom asked me about a notation I had scribbled in my notebook : get new ass. It was for 'assignment' but she didn't know. I imagine now how funny that must have been for her.

May 2, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterMel

I made it as far as "Toilet Slime Neon Ass." Once the giggles burst through my composure, it was a losing battle.

And I should think that a "Toilet Slime Neon Ass" would justify a sign outside for the "Super Bowel." That's probably quite appropriate, I would think.

May 4, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterJMixx

Welsh Lady Ass Fudge will never not make me want to laugh. This whole post makes me want to post that reaction image of William C. Endicott pulling on a donkey’s tail.
