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? ;)

And now, to celebrate the birth of our great nation, I give you...

Firework Cakes That Look Like Ding-Dongs

(I find it helps to hum the William Tell Overture as you scroll.)

(Oh, go on. You know you want to.)







And to all you phallic firework bakers out there:


Thanks to Erin W., Maneka P., Brouk, Gail D., Elisabeth M., Jessica G., Holly Anne, & Dana S. for the reminder to always handle your fireworks with care, lest they go off prematurely.


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

Jen, you realize that you keep contributing to our continuing juvenile delinquency, don't you? We're all never going to grow up at this rate.

Having said that, why is the fifth one wrapped with a ribbon?

At least one of those was done entirely on purpose...about the time the termination notice was delivered!

The last cake seems appropriate for a hooker boosting the "morale" of our servicemen. ;)

If this is what your "ding-dong" looks like: GO TO A DOCTOR NOW!!!

That last one made me snort. Not just because it said "servicing", but because I thought it said "servicing our Courtney". :-O

I'm delighted to see so many people who know the difference between "serving" and "servicing." We used to be coached at work on "how to service our customers" and that always gave me the giggles.

Did they not see it? How? And how did the flag get to be that shape?

I wish I could post a picture of my face as I scrolled down. It got worse with each picture. Thanks for that. Much needed today.

Happy Indepenis Day!

I snorted when I got to the DQ cake! Dong perfection!

Must be a special tribute to our Founding Fathers

What's with all the ketchup and mustard um, um, "squirts"? Ketchup and mustard should not squirt from fireworks or ding dongs! Or propel them either!

Happy Indepenis Day, Freja! (My new favorite saying! Duly stolen!)

See, and I would have gone with 1812 Overture due to all the exploding cannons, but that's me.
(What can I say…I'm a band nerd and my band just played that last week. Whee!)

PS - Freja, gold star!

Well I can see what the wreckerators are celebrating on the 4th lmao. Especially since they make them like this every year. I am crying and laughing right now.

Third one from the bottom... I think a shot of penicillin might cure that, but it looks kind of nasty.

July 4, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterChicago

Perhaps the theme song should be "My Ding-A-Ling"?

Once I was swimming cross Turtle creek
Many snappers all around my feet
Sure was hard swimming cross that thing
With both hands holdin' my ding a ling a ling"

It's 9 days later... and I just got the title to the post.

Now I'm snickering all over again! =-)
