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? ;)

Swing And A "Mist"

We here at Cake Wrecks know parting can be such sweet sorrow.

So here are 9 cakes to ruin the moment.


Oh great, here come the water works.


Maybe it's wissful thinking, but Luek sounds hot.


Be afraid. Be very afraid.


This wreck is evil, like the "furits" of the "Dve-il."

(Also, at first I thought that said "you will be missiled," and it was the happiest dang .85 seconds of my entire day. DOWN IN FRONT!)


Here's a fun party trick: read this cake out loud and you'll have an INSTANT southern accent:

Well I declare, Colonel Angus!


Definitely more than one "miss" in this room:

Now that's what I call "a balloon drop!"


I think this says, "Uoull gustly be mirrd Lt page!!"

Quick, someone look up how to say "God bless you" in Klingon.


"Remelering" sounds painful. Can't we just stick with one of those awkward handshake-pulling-into-a-half-hug-with-a-back-slap things?


And last but not least:

1) I think someone's brain was a little foggy on this one.
2) I can hear Moe now, "Oh, a wiss guy, eh?"
3) Is that as opposed to "Fear Sick" or "Fear Badly"?
4) And don't forget your vetegables, too!
5) So they were tarred and feathered once, then a second time and that's a reason to celebrate?
6) If your'e a guy, that would be kind of a "drag".
7) I saw "uoull guatly be mind". Must be some kind of code for the lieutenant to decipher before he can be promoted.
8) How do you "melere" someone the first time? And is that "you", "yai" or "yal"? If it's the last one, it fits right in with the retariment cake, yal.
9) Who goes to a cheese grating competition?

You will be Miss. Sounds like congratulations on a sex change.

Maybe cake #5 was celebrating a sex-change operation? Maybe? Nah, who am I kidding. In that case, it would’ve been screwed up MUCH more awkwardly.

I always love a good 'So I Married An Axe Murderer' reference ... 'Piper doon! Piper doon!'

September 27, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterFoots

OMG. Some of these made me snork breakfast bar out my nose!

DuHoSmoHjaj qeylIS = God Bless You in Klingon

September 27, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterStreehbach

Who else wanted to the fourth wreck to say, 'Enjoy the farts of your labor'? Just me? Oh, okay.

September 27, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterAngie

Maybe the balloon drop cake is a divorce cake? You will be Miss instead of Mrs.? Maybe?

September 27, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterBrandie

That third cake even has the & backward!

September 27, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterDorothy

Klingons don't really have a phrase for bless you. More like 'oy' DaSIQjaj which means ' May you endure the pain'. It's a traditional blessing.

See, and here I thought cake #1 was for someone transferring to a different beverage flavor at PepsiCo.

September 27, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterYet another Jen

And, once again, with the exception of the flaccid balloons, the cakes are all nicely decorated. Someone confiscate those piping bags, stat!

Well I don't know about you but when I retire I want to be missiled to the moon lol. Heck why not? I am still giggling about that one.

September 28, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterArlene Marie

I am impressed that #5 had "congratulation" spelled correctly.
Maybe these bakers have been spoiled by Spell Check and have forgotten the fine art of spelling.

September 28, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterTexas Gal

I read #2 as "We wish you luck" as first, but then realized it could be "We miss you Luke"

I'm so confused right now by poor penmanship.

The person who wrote on the 1st cake was anticipating Thanos' snap.

September 28, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterNick Meta

The 7th one (I think) says, "You'll greatly be missed Lt Page."
I can see it now. Lt Page is retiring and the other cops want to get him a cake. They order sheetcake number 13 which is a police style cake. They ask the for the cake to say, "You'll be greatly missed, Lt. Page. They asked Jenkins to pick up the cake. Jenkins is somewhat of a screw-up but how hard is it to pick up a cake? He doesn't look at the cake and just grabs it and delivers it to the precinct. They set up the detective's room all festive-like. Balloons that were used by drug dealers were broken out and blown up. Sgt. Moscowitz gets Lt Paige to come to his desk. As the Sgt. opens the box they all see the cake. Not a word is said until one of the boys booms out, "What the f**k, that's not the cake I ordered, hey Jenkins didn't you see it was this monstrosity?"
"I didn't look, Sarge."
Lt. Page replies, " I doesn't matter, it's the thought that counts. Thanks a lot guys."
"Still this must be cake number 31, damn that dyslectic baker."
"Oh, no that is perfectly nice, I like pink."
"They spelled your name wrong, Lieutenant." chimed Jenkins.
"Yes, I know, thank you." replied Lt Paige.
The cake then was cut and enjoyed by all. Jenkins was told to clean up the mess after.

But, I could be wrong.

Jen, I so love that you saw a “So I Married An Axe Murderer” quote in the first cake. I so heard Charlie McKenzie saying that while I read “furits”. You and I are soulmates 💜

Well I declare! Almost spit out my coffee! Oh cake wrecks, you never disappoint.
