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? ;)

Fling Your Stinky Underwear Over There


If you're stumped for cake inscriptions, just remind everyone what the bride's name is, and what the heck you're all doing there:

This kind of shorthand is invaluable for heavy drinkers.


You could also remind them when the party is happening:

...which is perfect for time travelers. And also heavy drinkers.


Since you need games at a shower (it's the law. The cruel, cruel law.) try some fun word jumbles!

Warning: This one is less perfect for heavy drinkers.


Aight, ladies, now it's time to spice things up.

So add butts.


Tina Belcher approved.


You could also throw in a weirdly phallic umbrella/jellyfish thingie:


And end with the insinuation that someone will have stinky underwear by morning:

BOOM. Now that's what I call a shower. Or at least a need for one.


And finally, if you never want to be in charge of the cake again, just bring this along:

Awww yeeeeeeah.


Thanks to Anony M., Trey P., Melinda M., Kristy F., Christine, Liz M., & William M. for the best ransom-note shower cake I've ever seen.

"Bifore" the wedding? :-D

August 20, 2018 | Unregistered Commentercakey

Coincidentally, the only way that "Wishes" and "Mrs." could rhyme in any way is if you've been drinking heavily.

I think "congradultioms" is my favorite misspelling ever. Pregnamt, on the other hand, is just worrying.

August 20, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterCass

Cake #2 is so pretty -- and yet the wreckerator STILL can't spell "before" correctly!

August 20, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterLaura

"Congratulatioms"? "Pregnamt"?

Goodness me.

August 20, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterKai Lowell

The butt could be nippleless boobs.

How...appropriate?...that "congradultions" includes "adult."

August 20, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterClassic Steve

Congradultioms! You made showers worse! (Better? It's all perspective now, isn't it?)

I think the Congradutioms On Not Being Pregnamt cake originally said Congradutioms Pregnamt on it. Now that's a lovely sentiment!

I really don’t understand why someone would be given Scoootest Wishes. Did I miss a meme?

August 20, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterAngelaS

I think the best part of the butt cake is the butt-baring bride and groom... why do those plastic figures even exist!!?

August 20, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterJoyfulFestivities

The "Sweetest Wishes" cake is just trying to show that the location is Sacramento County, California.

August 20, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterNutraxfornerves

oh, that last one! someone was (1) too lazy to figure out what letters were needed (b) unwilling to abbreviate "congradultioms" and (III) pretty bold for being able to charge money for that horror! *eyetwitch*

"Tiuas the night Bifore the Wedding".

My IQ just dropped a dozen points after reading that.

August 20, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterDancing with Lasagna

I could almost make myself believe that "congradultioms" is a deliberate misspelling to put the word "adult" in there.


August 20, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterBorg

That is totally an umbrella.

I just have no idea what it is doing there.

August 20, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterLauraF

I think I am happy to not be pregnamt lmao. Oh they on earth do they get customers?? Lol.

August 21, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterArlene Marie

Tiua? What kind of name is Tiua? As in "Tiuas Night Bifore the Wedding"

August 21, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterVTGoose

Love the Cookie Cake Comment!

August 21, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterLaura

Hubs tells me he thinks the stinky underwear cake is supposed to be a ring. With no diamond, apparently.

August 21, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterSally

Congradultioms? Are those, like, Mad Libs for grown-ups?

August 22, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterChicago

My sister is getting married next summer and I just thought of the BEST inscription for her bridal shower cake:
"[Sister's name], you need a shower."
