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? ;)

Bakers Celebrate National Punctuation Day?!

And now...

Punctuation Tips From Professional Bakers...


1) Always put punctuation at the end of a sentence. Unless you forget or think it looks better this way.

I like it.


2) Quotation marks are perfect for emphasizing you don't understand quotation marks.

"Good" job!


3) They can also help cover "mistakes!"

"That's my nickname for you. That I just made up."


4) A slash generally means "or," but hey, if it feels right...


5) Proper punctuation can convey a sense of enthusiasm, so choose wisely!!

Because everyone hates Jonathan.


6) No one really understands how apostrophes work, so just sprinkle them in wherever.


7) When in doubt, go with a question mark. Inside parentheses.

It's not the punctuation Gotham needs.
It's the punctuation Gotham deserves.


And finally, remember:

8) Punctuation is important. Just put it anywhere.

I think; these baker's! should have to take/a remedial English (class) before...being allowed, to write "on" any more cakes?

They missed a couple of commas, on that last cake. Shouldn't, there be one between We, Will, and, Miss?
(Hey! That, was, fun!)

They all make my eyes twitch!

I love how the yellow flower on that last cake looks like it's shrugging its shoulders at the whole list of cakes. It's just like, "I dunno, man, I just...whatever."

I really liked Jonathan's cake, but, then...

Perhaps Jonathan's cake is part one of a two-part birthday celebration.

Happy Birthday
Jonathan ...

... here is your final
pay check. Goodbye.

Maybe the baker just wants somebody to have either good luck or good Benita and doesn't care which one it turns out to be. Maybe good Benita is even better than good luck.

Is that ice cream on Tori's cake? If it is, who cares about punctuation?

September 24, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterNobodee Home

Lol oh man I can't breathe thanks to these wreckerators. I think they want to kill me with hilarity lol.

I'm with Borg (hey, who isn't? Resistance is, after all, futile) on "Good luck, good Benita, whichever is better." I also want to know if that is ice cream on "Tori"'s cake (the cake for "Tori"? "Tori's" cake? What is the possessive form of "Tori"? "Torrential"? Dang). And if it's not ice cream, what is it?

Anyway, Wreckerators, "Congularions", on, your, *GRAMMAR* (skills) (or lack thereof).

The heartbreaking thing is that so many of these are otherwise beautifully done! I bet the Jonathan cake decorator realised he hadn't go the spacing quite perfect, and decided to fill up the gap like that.
I have no explanation for the John(?) cake.

Good luck Benito? I hope this is not from WW2

September 25, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterFrancois

I actually like the Benida “cake,”:?\ oh wait?/, or is it Benita’/?

September 25, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterJjC

"Happy Bosses! Day"

(blink) The individual who ordered the cake has multiple bosses? That caught my eye long before the misplaced exclamation point.
